Chia seeds are flavorless so add this nutrient rich gel to any food you’d like.

1/3 cup Chia Seeds

2 cups filtered water


Pour water over seeds and stir.  The mixture will turn into gel in about 10-15 minutes.  Store gel in refrigerator for up to two weeks.

I pour this over a bed of mixed greens with hemp, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds, diced avocado, red onion, alfalfa sprouts and vine-ripened tomatoes.

Blend 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons fresh basil, 1/2 teaspoon natural sea salt, 1 tablespoon agave, and freshly ground pepper.  Gradually add 1/3 cup olive oil.

Lemon Poppy Seed Avocado

November 15th, 2007 at 11:36pm Under Easy

Lemon Poppy Seed Avocado

This recipe is one of my favorite meals.  Just one tablespoon of poppy seeds contains 13% of the RDA for calcium and is also a good source of iron and manganese.

1/2 avocado
Juice of 1/4 lemon
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
salt and pepper to taste


In the shell cut avocado into slices and place on a plate.  Squeeze lemon juice over the slices. Sprinkle with poppy seeds, pepper and sea salt.

Breakfast Bulghur*

Very easy. No cooking necessary!

1/3 c bulghur

1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons rasins, cranberries, or goji berries

1/2 tablespoon honey or agave (agave has a lower glycemic index than other natural sweetners)


Place bulgur, raisins or berries, and water in a covered container for 4-5 hours or overnight. Drain excess liquid and mix in your preferred sweetener and cinnamon. Enjoy!

*Bulghur is a transition food because although it is highly nutritious, it is not considered raw because it has been steamed and dried
