Raspberry Pecan Chia Pudding

I spoke recently about superfoods and smoothies at an event in Washington, DC, and I was surprised at how many people had never tried, or even heard of chia seeds. Is that you? Chia seeds benefit us with anti-inflammatory properties; they’re a healthy source of Omega 3 fatty acids, high in fiber and protein, and smoothie lovers appreciate how they thicken naturally when these tiny seeds are added to liquid. They taste almost like old school tapioca pudding. Here’s my latest version of chia pudding. I prefer using liquid stevia to keep my sugar intake in check, but you can use whatever healthy sweetener you have in the cupboard. Fresh raspberries are abundant right now, and southern pecans make me feel like summer. Here’s hoping you love it! Ingredients 2 cup coconut milk 15 drops liquid vanilla stevia (note: you can substitute 2 tsp of maple syrup or honey if you desire) 1/2 cup whole chia seeds 1 teaspoon vanilla extract pinch sea salt 1 teaspoon raw cacao powder 1 cup fresh raspberries plus extra for topping 1/4 cup chopped pecans for topping 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon for topping Preparation 1. In a 1-quart mason jar or other container with…

Men’s Nutritional Style

  I talk and write about women, but the truth is I work with men too, and often (I got a lot of grief from the guys on the little black dress analogy in my book). So, gentlemen, and the ladies who take care of you, this is for you. Here are my top 5 tips on how to live your best men’s Nutritional Style. 1) Movement A healthy heart and cardiovascular system is the key to living a long and healthy life, so regular movement is important. You know that, right? Movement also helps with stress, and boosts your fat burning while building muscle which then burns more calories. And burning more calories helps you keep your weight down, where it should be. Guys tend to carry extra weight in the middle, and extra fat in that area in particular contributes to heart disease and puts your health at risk. SO move…more. Run, walk fast, lift weights, order Beach Body, go to Zumba…Whatever it is that floats your boat, (mountain biking, anyone?) do it. Now. 2) Stress Stress promotes free radicals that lead to aging; it lowers your immunity and creates inflammation that can then also lead to a…
