Chia Seed Lemon Drink | Chia Seed Detox Water | Detox Water

Chia Seed Lemon Drink, a simple to make detox water at home with easily available ingredients from your pantry. When i saw the word "Detox water" for the first time, i wondered what is it ? Actually it's a infused water with fruits/vegetables and if you have it on empty stomach in the morning, it's said to help remove the toxins from the body and keep you energetic throughout the day. I'm not sure about all that claims about the detox water, but i wanna change my morning coffee routine to some what healthy drinks.So for the past couple of months, i have been drinking this lemon water with chia seed for twice or thrice in a week instead of my morning morning coffee and really like it, that means it deserves a post here.
