    A great alternative to the overly sweet gels sold in sport shops. Soak 1/2 cup chia seeds overnight in 2 cups liquid, such as coconut water or fruit juice. Purée the soaked seeds until they are thick and gel-like. Freeze in small Ziploc bags so they are ready to grab and go for your next workout.

  • Smoothie

    Blend a tablespoon or two of chia, sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, or flaxseeds with fresh fruits, juices, or coconut water, and perhaps a handful of spinach or kale.

  • Meatballs

    Instead of breadcrumbs, try chia or ground flaxseeds, which are great for binding meatballs or meatloaf.
