This such a perfect dish because it is so easy to make and will give you energy for hours. After this, you won't need anything else to eat for a while.
Therefore I truly find this one of the best raw food recipes for beginners, people with little time and raw foodists who like to feel "full" after a meal.
2 tablespoons chia or selba seeds
2 tablespoons goji berries
3/4 - 1 cup pure water
4 drops liquid stevia to sweeten (optional)
Put all ingredients in a bowl. Stir well. Continue to stir for the first 15 minutes, mixing all ingredients well.
Let sit for 30 - 60 minutes. (I usually make the pudding the night before and hve it for breakfast the next morning. Or I make it just after breakfast, so that it's ready for the lunch. (It keeps well for at least 24 hours.)
You may want to stir occasionally and check to see if there's enough water. It should have a jelly like, thick consistency. If - after 30 minutes - it's too thin, add some more seeds. If it's too thick, add some more water.
Enjoy this delicious super food pudding!
Chia seeds have more antioxidants than blueberries, are an excellent source of vegan calcium: 6x more calcium than whole milk, 15x more magnesium than broccoli, 25x more dietary fiber than flax seed, 8x more omega than salmon, 3x more iron than spinach, 2,5x more vegetable protein than kidney beans! And the best thing is that they are truly delicious. The taste is more subtile than flax or hemp seed.
Goji berries are another super food. They are extremely rich in anti-oxidants which help protect the cells in our bodies from diseases like cancer. They're also an excellent source of vitamin C and soluble fiber. They have more amino acids than bee pollen, more beta carotene than carrots, more iron than spinach and have 21 trace minerals. Goji berries contain 13% of protein! Goji berries are a powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial food.
