Chia Seed Pudding with Coconut & Vanilla (Paula Deen – Are You There?)

Weight loss & energy food tip here – and this food is ch-ch-ch-Cheap!

If you saw my natural energy drink “Chia Fresca” recipe video, you’ll know I’ve been lovin’ my Chia Seeds for a while now.

Used for centuries by native Central Americans, Chia seeds were considered a powerful energy food and provide excellent nutrition.

Chia Seeds

Filled with detox-supportive fiber, chia seeds, which look like little grey, tan or black poppy seeds, provide the best plant source of those fabulous Omega-3s that protect your heart,brain, skin and joint health.

Plus, all that fiber is GREAT for diabetics who need to stabilize their blood sugar and lose weight. Do you think Paula Deen knows about chia seeds? If you know her, send her this recipe – I’d love to be on her show!

(*The extra cinnamon in this recipe helps balance blood sugar levels even more – one of those super ingredients diabetics and border-line diabetics should be using!)

Soak these seeds in liquid for 15+ minutes, and they begin to gel and soften, providing an excellent slow-moving fiber and protein, which helps you feel full and reduces appetite.

Chia also contains protein, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, antioxidants, niacin, and zinc.

Now you can enjoy these ancient seeds as a delicious dessert any time - and this recipe only takes about 20 minutes to make!

Reversing Diabetes With Diet – Beautiful Testimonial

 

men using food to cure Type 2 Diabetes

Sometimes the power of simple, healthy food truly astounds me.
My mother’s boyfriend Emilio is a middle aged farmer/bus driver who grew up in Texas and Mexico,
has a passion for saving farm animals, and has lived with Type 2 Diabetes for most of his adult life.

Strong and active his whole life, Emilio was overweight and beginning to see
signs that his body couldn’t handle the strain and illness any longer.
When a serious infection set in and his ability to work was compromised, Emilio
set out to make some big changes to his diet.

With my mom’s help, Emilio read my books and started to change his diet to
address his long standing health issues.

Switching from a diet based on lard, sugars, and fried foods,
Emilio has lost over 80 pounds and is almost off his medications.

Read Emilio’s story for yourself:

“I have started to reverse my diabetes that I’d dealt with for decades.

Matter of fact I only have to take one pill a day and no more insulin
shots. If Alex hadn’t been born to write her books I’d either be very
ill or six feet under!!

I also find it easier to deal with the pain from
the herniated discs in my back while working daily on my farm and
part time charter bus driving, which was extremely painful before
and required pain medication.

I no longer eat much fried foods, and
for a Texan that’s a big change!

Also, I have given up using lard in the foods I prepare, using
primarily locally grown produce and wild
pig or deer for meat. (It’s organic!!!)”
