Chia seeds are a great way to add bulk to your stools and help improve bowel movement. They are also a good source of ALA (plant based omega 3).

As with everything to do with the gut though, chia seeds don’t suit everybody’s bowel… so if you don’t seem to feel great after eating them, listen to your body’s wisdom…. and try something else!  It might also help to slowly increase the amount you are eating, so that your gut can get used to it.

This is one of my favourite chia seeds recipe. Have it for breakfast, snack or dessert 😉

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ cup fresh or frozen berries (raspberry or strawberries work well)
  • ¼ fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1 tsp organic lime or lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • ½ cup water

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mash together berries with lemon/lime juice.
  2. Add zest and sweetener of your choice, making a delightful berry mush.
  3. Measure chia seeds in a separate bowl and add water.
  4. Mix well and allow to stand for about one minute.
  5. Stir again and pour into the berry mixture, stirring until combined.
  6. Pour chia Jelly into a pretty serving bowl and refrigerate 4-6 hours or overnight.

 

 

Tip #1: Add some protein powder (2 to 4 tbsp) to make it a complete snack/breakfast option. I like Great lakes Collagen Hydrolysate for this as it is taste free and doesn’t contain gelatine, so won’t affect the setting of the jelly.

Tip #2: Make your Jelly into a dessert by adding maple ganache on top:

Melt 1/3 cup coconut oil, add ¼ cup raw cacao powder and 2 tbsp maple syrup. Whisk to combine. Pour over the jelly before putting in the fridge.
