Just because you're laying off the stacks of pancakes for a bit doesn't mean you can't still get your fill of maple syrup. In this recipe from chef Seamus Mullen's Real Food Heals, lime juice keeps the maple from being cloying, and chia seeds turn drinking to your health into a textural sensation.

Not into lime and maple? Try a rosemary-grapefruit version instead, and learn more about tonics here.
