Chia Seed Pudding

These little seeds are nutrient dense and have the highest concentration of antioxidants  of any other food.  Because they increase in size and weight, they keep you feeling full for hours and so they can be helpful in loosing weight.  They also help balance blood sugar to prevent cravings. High in Omega 3's, especially when using hemp milk, high in protein and low in calories, raises serotonin and therefore, is calming.


2 cups alternative milk (unsweetened Almond, Coconut milk or hemp milk

2-3 packets Stevia

1-2 teaspoons vanilla.

Lastly add 1/2 cup chia seeds and stir often to keep it from getting lumpy

Optional: Add before chia seeds: 2 teaspoons raw cacao powder; ginger, fresh fruit (like blueberries or pomegranate seeds, raspberries), cardamon, allspice, almond extract, cocoa nips, mint sprigs, cinnamon and/or nutmeg.

Recipes & Remedies

To Detoxify the Liver  (from A New Vision with Resonance Repatterning - pg 188)

(The Wood Element in Chinese acupuncture relates to the eyes)

To do the Liver Detox:

1) Make a tea to drink immediately after step #2:

    2 cups water, brought to a boil

    1 tsp each fennel, fenugreek and flaxseed, reduce heat and simmer 10 min.


2) Place in a blender the following:

    2-4 tbsp. cold pressed olive oil

    3-4 Garlic cloves

    Some grated or sliced ginger

    Dash of cayenne

    Juice ½ lemon & ½ large - 1small whole peeled grapefruit 

    Blend and drink 

    Drink the tea immediately

This can be repeated 2 or 3 days in a row.  I like to do this in the evening, however, if I do it too late, I can’t go to sleep. I give it to everyone in the family so that I don’t offend anyone with the garlic aroma.
