I stumbled upon something cool in it; apparently, a very common drink this tribe (the Tarahumara) drink is called Iskiate, and it is basically the world's greatest energy drink. Besides being insanely good for you, it gives you a boost of energy and, according to the author, even cleared his headache.
Here's what you do:
- Mix chia seeds in water until they dissolve.
- Add a small spoonful of sugar.
- Add a squirt of lime
- Mix and enjoy
I am waiting for my seeds to arrive. I'll keep you updated on how it tastes, my energy level and whether-or-not I grow green hair. If you want more info, here is an article with an excerpt from the book.
