Tip: To up the anty even more.  Make chia gel. To make chia gel just stir chia seeds into 4 tsp of water and let it sit for 5 minutes.  It will become this funky gel stuff that looks like frog eyes.  Don’t worry you are blending it up:).  This my friends is LOADED with nutrients.  If you thought chia seeds were healthy before, this just took it up a notch.  Soaking them makes them a live food.  Just like planting a seed and watering it, it becomes live and ready to grow.  This is also extremely filling.  You can even just take a couple of tablespoons of this to help you feel satiated…awesome for curbing cravings and helping you stop snacking.  But make sure you drink a lot of water when eating chia.

Tip:  There are so many super foods out there but they can be overwhelming and can leave one unsure what to get.  What I did when I started getting super foods is that I simply just bought one every time I went to the store if my budget permitted me.  After months of doing this you’ll now find bee pollen, maca powder, goji berries, cacao nibs and even nutritional yeast in my pantry/fridge.  I say pick one and just try it.  And read the packages on them. They often will tell you of all the reasons why they rock out your health.

Swiss Chard Pesto

  • 4 to 5 Cups of Swiss Chard – leaves, and stems
  • 3 cloves garlic

Put everything in a pot just big enough to hold it and add water to cover by half. Cook it at below a simmer until anything you prod with a wooden spoon is smashable. Keep just enough water in the pot to make sure the bottom’s not burning, adding a little water as you need it. When everything is soft, puree it quickly in a blender or food processor, or simply smash it with a wooden spoon until you get tired, leaving moments of appealing, irregular texture.

This is delicious dolloped on toast and grated with Parmesan, or treated as a side dish and served with fish or meat or, with a cup of Parmesan cheese added, mixed with hot pasta.

Tip: Dates are high in fiber which helps you feel full longer, and also regulates your digestive system. Dates can also be considered a “laxative type food” helping with constipation.  Another perk of our friend the date is that it contains a healthy amount of good bacteria for your intestines. Which is again, helpful for digestion.  My little girl loves dates for a snack.  My favorite way to eat dates is to dip them in almond butter and sprinkle coconut on top for a fast treat.
