Introducing the winners of our #iheartchia contest—from smoothie to lunch bowl to (healthy) cookie.

We asked readers and social media followers to tag their best chia seed recipes with the hashtag #iheartchia, and we had the fun (and filling) work sorting through the flood of creative, inspiring dishes to choose our three favorites. It wasn’t easy, trust us. (But it was delicious!)

Finally, we decided on these three innovative and gorgeous chia-packed meals—from smoothie to lunch bowl to (healthy) cookie. Here’s your sneak peek at three chia seed recipes that wowed us.

Follow the recipe creators on Instagram now, and stay tuned for their full recipes, published in the Ultimate Guide to Chia, which will available for free on Well+Good very soon. Stay tuned!
