We ordered to Chia seeds from our friends at Nutiva. When we got them… I was like, what do we do know. Chia seeds look a little like poppy seeds but when you put them in water they swell and become gelatinous sort of like flax but not has slimy. The people of the ancient Aztec and Incan empires revered chia seeds as vital nourishment and frankly so do we at Steviva Brands. These mighty non-gluten seeds, are packed with Omega-3, protein, rare antioxidants, fiber and are considered a super-food. The longer you soak the chia seeds, the softer they become. I found them perfectly edible after about 20 minutes of soaking, but they do have a tiny bit of a “crunch” to them. Leaving them overnight in the refrigerator will render a soft and delicious pudding that is almost thick enough to stand a spoon up in. If you’ve never been a big fan of tapioca pudding, this probably isn’t for you. But if you are, this makes a really awesome low glycemic dessert or breakfast meal. Feel free to get creative with different spices and fruits!
All I have to say is one word; “AMAZING!” No words can define the deliciousness of these sugar free delicacies.
Low glycemic no added sugar coconut chocolate fudge is a true crowd pleaser! Enjoy with any occasion.
The raw food diet is a craze right now. A raw food diet based on unprocessed and uncooked plant foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouts, seeds, grains, beans, nuts and dried fruit. It is asserted that heating food above 110ºF is believed to destroy enzymes in food that can assist in the digestion and absorption of food. Cooking is also thought to diminish the nutritional value and “life force” of food. My little sister, Jill who goes by Kin’s, shared this recipe with me a while back and I made it yesterday and just pulled it out of the dehydrator this morning. These cookies were amazing and really good for you. I made a few tweaks to it but, I think it made them better. Quantities can be fudged, this is a very forgiving recipe. Make sure to buy ‘raw’ nuts and not roasted. If it doesn’t say ‘raw’, it is roasted.
This is such a “good for you snack”. First off cocoa is a huge antioxidant, secondly walnuts are heart healthy and loaded with good fats. In addition to heart healthy ingredients, walnuts also contain a wealth of other nutrients, including vitamin E, the B vitamins, fiber, and several minerals. Many of the studies performed suggest that you only need to consume only a handful of walnuts a day to receive the cholesterol-lowering benefits of walnuts. The FDA agrees with this health claim so eat them up.
Chocolate is made from plants, which means it contains many of the health benefits of dark vegetables. These benefits are from flavonoids, which act as antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the body from aging caused by free radicals, which can cause damage that leads to heart disease. Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It is classified as a “functional food” because it provides many health benefits beyond its nutritional content. Pecans, the only native American tree nut, contains more than 19 vitamins and minerals – including vitamin A, vitamin E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, several B vitamins and zinc. One ounce of pecans provides 10 percent of the recommended Daily Value for fiber. Studies have shown that nut consumption may increase metabolic rates and enhance satiety. This makes this recipe the perfect healthy, low carb, diabetic safe snack. Enjoy!
