Chia seeds are a great source of protein and will give people extra energy, allowing them to get through their days and their workouts without becoming fatigued as quickly. Unfortunately, many people do not like the taste of chia seeds on their own. Here are some easy ways that you can work chia seeds into your breakfast so that you can get this extra protein and energy without having to eat the chia seeds by themselves.

1. Make It a Pudding

If you’re rushed for time, the easiest way to get chia seeds into a form that is easy for you to eat is to make a pudding out of them. First, take a cup of almond milk or of soy milk. Then, slowly start mixing in the chia seeds so that they gradually become more and more dense in the liquid. As you mix them in, the chia seeds should start to absorb the milk and form a thicker texture that is reminiscent of pudding. Once the seeds have become a pudding texture, you can eat it with a spoon. Cut up bananas or strawberries and add them to the top of the chia pudding for more flavor. You can also add sugar or another sweetener if you find the chia seed pudding too bland.

2. Add Them to Oatmeal

Another option is to add them to oatmeal. In order to add chia seeds to oatmeal, simply make the oatmeal ahead of time, being sure that the oats are all mixed in. Allow the oatmeal to cool for a minute or two and then add in a quarter cup of chia seeds. Feel free to adjust the amount of chia seeds that you put into the oatmeal in order to make sure that the ratio is perfect for you. The chia seeds are going to swell slightly as they absorb the water or milk that is in the oatmeal, but they should still stay relatively crunchy.

3. Add Them to a Smoothie

Finally, if you are in the habit of making a smoothie each day, throw a few handfuls of chia seeds into the smoothie along with your kale, frozen berries, or other fruits that you might be adding. If you purchase a smoothie to drink in the morning, keep a small dish with a quarter cup of chia seeds in your car to add to the smoothie that you have purchased. It will make your smoothie a little bit crunchier, but it will also add more protein to the smoothie.
