Blueberry Pie Chia Pudding

Ft Collins Weight Loss & Nutrition Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Recipes

Chia is my favorite breakfast food and/or dessert.  It is a seed from Central/South America that is high protein, fiber and beneficial omega-3.  It is also easily digestible and considered a raw food.  I add 4T chia to 1/4 c liquid (almond milk, water, etc.), let it sit for a minute to gel and spice it up with blueberries, coconut or other toppings.

Kombucha Tea

Ft Collins Weight Loss & Nutrition Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Recipes

Kombucha is a fermented tea full of good bacteria (probiotics) that have been shown to boost immunity, speed up weight loss, heal your gut and gut-related anxiety.  And it is delicious! You can buy pre-made, bottled Kombucha at any store, but you will pay an average of $3.50 per 16-oz bottle.  Making it yourself will only cost about a dollar a gallon.   

One of my patients inspired me to make my own.  After a 30-day science experiment in my kitchen, I've perfected it - and it is simple!  I've started drinking this in the morning instead of coffee and it is energizing.  Several of my friends and patients report that they have fewer breakouts and are more regular.
