Chia seed recipes and egg replacer.

Chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and protein and a good source of magnesium. They are good for digestion and keep you full for a long time, because they swell and use the bodies fluids to digest them drink lots of water about 30 minutes after the meal. They are versatile as warm porridge or a cool smoothie or as divine cacao dessert. If you stick to the basic recipe below you can then add any fruit, puree, milk or powder to make them to your own taste.

This is chia porridge I made with almond milk and topped with bananas, spirullina, mesquite, camu camu, hemp seeds, almonds, brazils, pecans, cocao nibs and coconut.

The basic recipe is:

1/3 cup chia seeds

2 cups filtered water or milk of choice

This makes a 6:1 ratio which gives you a good gel. Mix it together and leave for up to 30 minutes.

I leave mine in the fridge in a jar for the next days breakfast or snack. Then you can top it with fruit or add more milk or nuts and seeds to make a complete meal.

As an egg replacer the ratio is: for 1 egg- 1tbs chia seeds to 3 tbs of water.
