Dr. L J Rose was back on Bloom Lifestyle TV with Gayle Guyardo this week discussing how chia seeds are “Food as Medicine” In this…
If you have a sensation of heartburn or acid reflux, take heaping tablespoon of chia seeds and chew them slowly. They are quite dry and if you need help getting them down, try to take just a tiny sip of water. What you want is for the chia seeds to absorb liquid, so you don't want to drink too much water with them. Once you chew them all, they will absorb the acid in your esophagus in about 15-20 minutes!Here is the link to see this on the Bloom website:
Quick Vanilla Pudding Parfait with Raspberry Jam Raspberry Jam Ingredients: 1 package of frozen raspberries, defrosted (or can use a pint or two of fresh raspberries 2 TB. agave, honey or coconut nectar 4 TB. chia seeds Extra berries for garnish along with mint leaves Directions: Place raspberries in blender and blend until fairly smooth. You can also defrost and mash with potato masher. Place in bowl and stir in sweetener (add more if you prefer it sweeter) Add chia seeds and stir well. You should stir every 5-10 minutes for about 30 minutes – It should thicken into a jam consistency. (add more chia seeds if needed) Vanilla Crème Sauce (option to turn into pudding with Chia Seeds) Ingredients: 1 cup soaked raw cashews 1 TB. vanilla extract or seeds from a vanilla bean 2.5 TB. virgin coconut oil 1/2 cup water (can use date soaking water) 2 TB. agave, coconut nectar or maple syrup 5 pitted medjool dates, soaked (you can replace with 2-3 extra TB. of agave or maple syrup) Prep: Twenty minutes ahead, soak cashews in water. Soak dates separately in 1 cup of water. Remove pits from dates. Directions: Remove dates from soaking water, but reserve water. Place drained cashews in blender with ½ of the date water, agave and coconut oil and blend until smooth. Add rest of water with the dates and vanilla and blend until smooth. Chia Vanilla Pudding: Thicken this sauce by adding several tablespoons of chia seeds and allow plenty of time (20-30 minutes) to absorb liquid and thicken. Note: Because of the coconut oil, the vanilla pudding will thicken in the fridge even without any chia seeds! Depending on the consistency you desire, add chia seeds to make it firmer. Storage: This sauce can be sealed and stored for several days in fridge. It becomes thicker upon refrigeration.
