How it works


Chia seeds and lime juice for a natural energy drink


This drink provides a huge amount of endurance energy and won’t upset your stomach like the energy drinks available on the store shelves, which are all sugar.

I am an ultramarathoner and read about this recipe in 'Born to Run' and swear by it.


Chia seeds are a powerhouse of energy. They are an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, magnesium, and manganese.


This DIY energy drink is a must if you are going for a long run or just want more energy to go about your day!


2 tbsp chia seeds

2 cups of water

juice of 1 lime

1 tbsp agave nectar (vegan) or honey (non vegan)


Mix all ingredients together in a large water bottle and refrigerate for 3+ hours


What you'll need


Story


I am an avid marathoner and ultramarathoner. I learned about this recipe in the book "Born to Run'

I have run 182 marathons / ultramarathons including four 100 milers. I have been tweaking my nutrition for years to maximize my running and minimize stomach upset on the run.
