Fancy a delicious and easy way to boost your morning smoothie? Add some seeds and use a water ionizer!
Seeds are tiny nutritional powerhouses packed with all kinds of good things, including:
The Need For Seeds
When it comes to seeds, big things really do come in tiny packages!
They are small but nutritionally, they sure are mighty! It’s a breeze to add a handful of mixed seeds to a bake, cookies or a loaf cake, but to get the most out of these miniature health-bombs, you need a couple of awesome tips!
First, some seeds need to be milled or ground in order to release all those incredible benefits. Try to grind what you’ll use within a day or so to maximize the nutritional value.
Seeds that benefit from a bit of a pummelling in a spice mill or pestle and mortar include:
- Flaxseeds/Golden linseeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sunflower seeds

Chia seeds are particularly tiny and fabulously versatile!
You can grind these or eat them whole – the nutritional content is the same. You can also soak chia seeds in alkaline water from your water ionizer, making them perfect for a zingy morning smoothie!
Try this get-up-and-go early summer recipe:
- 1 cup baby leaf spinach
- 1/2 cup ionized alkaline water
- Juice of 1 orange
- Juice of 1 lime
- 3/4 cup fresh pineapple
- 2 tbsp chia seeds, soaked in alkaline water for 15 minutes
- Sprig of mint
To prepare your smoothie, simply throw all the ingredients (except for the mint) into a blender and whizz until smooth.
Serve over crushed ice and garnish with mint.
What a healthy and delicious way to start your day!
