Eating Clean Creamy Breakfast Chia Pudding #dairyfree #glutenfree #vegan

Blogging and being involved in the health and wellness industry has brought so many cool people into my life! I’ve made lifelong friends that I never would have had the chance to meet otherwise. One such person is Amie of The Healthy Apple. I still remember the first time we met. It was back in the old days of blogging (about 7 years ago) at the first-ever Foodbuzz conference. We connected on that trip and have stayed friends ever since. I’m super pumped because today is the launch of Amie’s first book Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation and Reset Your Body!

It’s so fun to see a friend’s work in print!

Eating Clean is the journey of how Amie healed herself from a decade of chronic illness and how others can do the same. In the beginning of the book she shares her full story. How she’s dealt with multiple aliments including Lyme Disease, Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome, Hypothyroidism, Adrenal Fatigue, Leaky Gut, and Heavy Metal and Mold Toxicity. She goes into detail about how she visited countless doctors before taking her health in her own hands and figuring out the root cause of all her issues.

As a friend I saw Amie struggle with illness over the years and I am so beyond excited that she’s on a path of healing and back to her vibrant, fun-loving self. Her transformation is really powerful.

About a quarter of the book is dedicated to detoxification. Not detox like a 3-day juice cleanse, but detox in the food, lifestyle and environmental sense. She gives suggestions for everything from food, household items and cleaning supplies to cosmetics and personal care products. She even has suggestions for detoxifying house plants and DIY recipes for cleaning products.

The remaining three quarters of the book is filled with over 200 detox-approved plant-based recipes free of gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar, eggs, corn and processed ingredients.

Amie is a chef, food lover and a culinary nutritionist so all the recipes are amazingly healthy and unique while also 100% satisfying and delicious.

A Unique Spin on Chia Pudding

Take this creamy chia pudding as an example… I’ve made chia pudding a bizzilon times before, but Amie’s version is completely different than anything I’ve ever tried.

How to Make a Breakfast Chia Pudding Bowl

First, the chia seeds are mixed with water. Half of the chia mixture is blended with raw cashews and dates to make a creamy, ricotta-like pudding that’s luxurious, smooth and sweet while the remaining half is served up as is. When you pair the two components together, topped with fresh fruit, and you have a delicious and satisfying breakfast chia pudding unlike any other.

      A yummu fiber-filled treat for dessert or breakfast! I made it for dessert just now, but will save the rest for breakfast (I’m keeping the two mixtures separate in the fridge until then).

      I think the nutrition numbers are a bit off. Your basic chia pudding, with 3-4 T chia seeds, has 16g fiber. So how can the breakfast chia pudding, with 1/4 C chia seeds, only be 2g fiber?

        Thanks for the heads up! Just took a look and the nutrition facts for this recipe were definitely off. I don’t remember if I got these directly from the cookbook or calculated them myself, but I just recalculated and they are correct now! The recipe serves 4 and each serving has 10g of fiber.

      Thanks for sharing! Like Amie, I suffer from hypothyroidism and have heard about what ingredients I should cut out–it’s great to have a book of recipes to choose from! I also like that it includes ways to detox aside from food.
