Chia breakfast

Chia seed breakfast for 1

¼ cup chia seeds

1 cup water

berries or fruit of choice

Simply mix the seeds and water together, let sit 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cut up berries, or apple, or fruit of choice and add it to the mixture. This is like an oatmeal, but LIVING, so high in enzymes and life force energy. Chia seeds will actually absorb 9 times their weight in water, so if you have more time, you can add more water. Experiment with what works best for you. I have friends that make a big batch and eat it for a few days. For me, it works best to just make the portion I want to eat right then. Find what works best for you

Chia Seed Crackers

Chia seed crackers/sandwich wraps~ requires dehydrator

1 cup chia seeds

4 cups water

1 tomato (any kind) chopped

1 tsp chili powder

1 cayenne pepper chopped (optional)

pinch sea salt

Stir together seeds and water and let sit for 35-45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add remaining ingredients and stir together. Place on dehydrator tray with a ParaFlexx™ Premium Non Stick Drying Sheet, (teflon).

Dehydrate for 12 hours, turning over and removing the Teflon halfway through. The longer you dry it, the crisper it will get. So for a soft sanwhich wrap, you only dehyrate for 8-10 hours. For very crispy crackers, dehydrate for 14 hours.
