Chia seeds have were used by the ancient Incan soldiers during their long expeditions. Many of them would only consume 1 tsp in water. Chia seed forms a gelatin when placed in water which allows the body to remain hydrated for longer periods of time. This gelatin, which is actually soluble fiber within the seed, also soothes the bodys organs and creates a barrier between carbohydrates preventing spikes in blood sugar.Truly an awesome food.
2 tablespoon chia seed
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
3 large ripe bananas
1 tablespoon or more maca root powder
½ cup water
Place chia seed and flax seed into water and allow them to form the gel. Add the gel and other ingredients into a food processor and mix well. You may add some cinnamon and nutmeg if you wish.
