Chia seeds are one of those things that can be incorporated into almost anything. Whole chia seeds can be added to smoothies, baked goods and overnight oats and when milled, can even be added to our Perfect Pesto. Incorporating chia seeds into your recipes adds omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, calcium and antioxidants. However, they don’t add much taste. Chia seeds can also absorb an incredible amount of liquid, up to 12 times their volume. Many recommend soaking the seeds before consuming them to reap the most benefits. Although chia water can be beneficial to your health, it definitely isn’t the tastiest way to consume these wonderful seeds. Instead, try making our Chia Pudding, a sure way to enjoy all of the benefits while making the seeds the star of the recipe! Read More
Sometimes, we just want some pizza. Instead of suppressing those urges and cravings, which can eventually lead to caving and binging, try this healthy sprouted pizza ‘crust’ instead! This gluten-free, paleo, low carb, high fat sprouted crust isn’t your traditional pizza crust, but with the right toppings, it sure does the trick. Plus, it offers all of the benefits that come from eating healthy fats and fibre rich foods. For those with a gluten intolerance or folks on a carb diet, who don’t have time to make a cauliflower crust, this is a great alternative!
There’s something about homemade jams and spreads that are just so satisfying. Maybe some of this satisfaction comes from the DIY aspect, but for us it comes from knowing exactly what we’re eating, how it was made and where it’s coming. Most store bought jams and spreads are packed with preservatives and loaded with added sugars, often tricking us into thinking that we’re doing ourselves a favour by spreading some fruit on our toast. Next time you’re meal prepping, try adding our superfood spread to the list. We made ours using Jujube fruit, also known as red dates, dried apricot, white mulberries and chia seeds. Not only is it made from real, whole organic fruit, but it doesn’t contain any added sugar! Most store bought spreads are also thickened with pectin. We decided to use our organic chia seeds in place of this to soak up some of the excess liquid and make our superfood spread thick and packed with fibre and micronutrients (and don’t forget about Omega-3s!). Enjoy your superfood spread with pancakes (like we did), waffles, toast, crackers and even oatmeal!Read More
Over the last couple of years, dairy free milks have become increasingly popular. Almonds, cashews, soy and coconut are some of the leading dairy free milks on the market, some of which are relatively easy to make. However, the easiest and one of the most nutritious dairy-free milks to make is Hemp milk. For people living with food allergies, hemp milk is a fantastic alternative to dairy, soy and nut milks. Not only does is contain calcium, magnesium, fiber, potassium, B vitamins and Omega-3, it also a great source of vegan protein. Plus, its quick and easy to make, and unlike some nut milks, requires no soaking or straining!
