Health benefits of Chia Seeds

The tiny seed can support your overall health in many ways:

  • Two tablespoons of these seeds are loaded with minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. These help with weight management and blood pressure.
  • You can get 60% of your omega-3 fatty acids from chia seeds. These healthy fats are great for inflammation, reducing cholesterol, and enhancing mental focus and performance.
  • Get all the fiber you need by eating chia. For each two-tablespoon serving, you get 10 grams of fiber. Chia also expands, so it’s great for helping you control your appetite!
  • These seeds have been shown to regulate blood sugar. The seeds reduce high levels of insulin in the blood.

Gluten Free Quinoa + Chia Bread

Gluten Free Quinoa + Chia Bread

Ingredients for 1 loaf:

  • 300 g (10 1/2 oz / 1 3/4 cups) whole uncooked quinoa seed
  • 60 g (2 fl oz / 1/4 cup) whole chia seed
  • 250 ml / 1 cup water (use half to soak chia seeds and the other half to combine in the food processor)
  • 60 ml (2 fl oz / ¼ cup) olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • juice from ½ lemon

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 160 C / 320 F. fan forced oven.
  • Soak quinoa in plenty of cold water overnight in the fridge.
  • Soak chia seed in 1/2 cup water until gel like – this can be done overnight as well, but just give it a few stirs at the beginning.
  • Drain the quinoa and rinse really well through a sieve. Make sure the water is fully drained from your sieve.
  • Place the quinoa into a food processor.
  • Add chia gel, 1/2 cup of water, olive oil, bicarb soda, sea salt and lemon juice.
  • Mix in a food processor for 3 minutes. The bread mix should resemble a batter consistency with some whole quinoa still left in the mix.
  • Spoon into a loaf tin lined with baking paper on all sides and the base.
  • Bake for 1 ½ hours until firm to touch and bounces back when pressed with your fingers. Mine took 1 1/2 hours – oven temps can vary slightly – but the bread needs the time to cook and for the quinoa to become tender.
  • Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes in the tin…then remove from the tin and cool completely on a rack or board. The bread should be slightly moist in the middle and crisp on the outside. Cool completely before eating.
  • Serve delicate slices only when cold with a serrated knife.
  • Store wrapped in the fridge for up to 1 week.(yes this can be frozen for up to 3 months)
  • Delicious lightly toasted on a pan.
  • Serves 12 – and best served lightly toasted in a pan until golden on both sides.

Quick tip: Serve topped with macadamia nut butter.

Enjoy it!

Vegan Buckwheat Bread (Gluten Free)

Vegan Buckwheat Bread (Gluten Free)

Ingredients:

  • 1 and ½ cups almond meal – 150 grams
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour – 140 grams
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds – 27 grams
  • 3 tbsp psyllium husk
  • 1 cup mixed seeds (a blend of buckwheat groats, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds)
  • 2 tsp bicarb soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp rice malt syrup (can substitute maple syrup, or honey) – 40 mL
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar – 40 mL
  • 2 cups water – 500 mL

 

Instructions:

  1. Combine the almond flour, buckwheat flour, psyllium, chia, mixed seeds, bicarb and salt in a large mixing bowl. Make sure there are no lumps in the mix.
  2. Take another smaller bowl and combine the water, rice malt syrup and cider vinegar. I find this is easiest to do if you first use a fork to whisk your rice malt syrup and apple cider vinegar into one cup of warm water (not boiling, just hot enough to melt the syrup), then add a second cup of cool water.
  3. Pour the water mix into the dry mix and combine thoroughly. Yes it will look like a wet, grey-ish mess (but don’t worry as it turns a nice dark brown when you bake it).
  4. Cover with a tea towel and allow to sit in the bowl for at least 1 hour. During this time, turn your oven on to 180˚C and also line a loaf tin with baking paper. I used a fairly small loaf tin, about 20cm long (this is so you get a taller loaf).
  5. After an hour or so check on your “dough”. It should have absorbed any excess water, though it will still be wetter than a standard bread dough. It will feel quite sticky to touch.
  6. Scoop the dough into your loaf tin and smooth the top out evenly, smoothing out any air bubbles.
  7. Place in the oven and cook for between 1 hour – 1 hour 15 minutes. At the 1 hour mark, check on the bread and make sure it is not burning. It should be a very dark brown on the outside, and very firm to touch in the centre, when it is done.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely; remove it from the baking tin as soon as it’s cool enough to handle to avoid it “sweating” in the tin.
  9. Once cooled, slice and store in the fridge for up to a week or keep in the freezer for a longer life.

2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, coconut, buckwheat groats, coconut sugar, cinnamon and salt.
3. Add the maple syrup, coconut sugar, melted coconut oil, and cooked red lentils. Mix thoroughly.
4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the granola into a even layer over the entire surface.
5. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for 5-10 minutes (the longer you allow the granola to cool, the more granola clusters you are likely to have at the end.) Mix and break up the granola before redistributing it evenly.
6. Bake for another 6 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for 5-10 minutes. Mix and break up the granola before redistributing it evenly.
7. Bake for another 4-5 minutes, or until granola is evenly toasted but not burnt. Watch the granola closely as it tends to burn suddenly and rapidly.
8. Cool completely before breaking into clusters and storing in an airtight container.

Cooking the Lentils:
Approx. ½ cup dry red lentils (split) = 1 cup cooked. Rinse ½ cup dry red lentils (split). Add the lentils and 1 cup of unsalted water to a small-medium sized saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 5-10 minutes (until lentils are just tender.)

Notes:
If you do prefer it a touch sweeter you can choose a sweetened non-dairy milk, add a dash of maple syrup or coconut palm syrup to each bowl, or add some dried fruit to the granola itself after it’s cooled.

Enjoy!!! 😍

    Great chia, delivered on time in beautiful condition. We consume vast amounts of chia, and these guys’ quality and affordability are excellent!

    I have not used it yet but I munched on a few dry seeds and they were good. Bag was new and clean (did NOT look like it was sitting around on a shelf for the last year). Price was just right. Would buy again.

    I have been using chia seeds before they became main stream at your local grocer. I am fully satisfied with this purchase and the buyer experience with the seller.

    I am very happy with this product. I use it to make a drink every morning. There was minimal debris in the seeds. Some other brands have a lot of little sticks mixed in.

    Arrived in good condition. This is considerably more expensive than I can get at my health food store. Maybe there’s a difference, but not that I know of.

    Great company and easy to have it come monthly. I only wish it was custom because I don’t need it every month. I have to cancel it alot, luckily it’s easy to cancel.

    Amazingly inexpensive. Absolutely no apparent difference between this and the more expensive products. Completely satisfied. I’ll order again.

    Best packaging for Chia Seeds I’ve seen yet. I’ve had other companies send seeds with horrible packaging and loose seeds everywhere in the box. Not here. Very satisfied.

    Can’t beat this price. I know it sounds like a lot but I just put it into a smaller container for everyday use. I see no difference in the quality compared to higher price chia seeds.

    Nice quality chia seed. Great price for 10 lbs too. This is a better price then what I had purchased previously for 2 6 lbs bags. I eat it and also give it to my horses. Works great for everyone in the house!
