Chai Chia Berry Pudding Bowl

I love chia for all of the benefits that it offers…fiber, antioxidants and protein to name a few.  I am always looking to create  great new combinations with chia seeds..  Today, it is Chai Chia Berry Pudding.  We already love chai when mixed with tea, so, why not include it in other recipes?  The result is that the pudding is completely smooth, and goes down like silk. Yum.  On a practical note, on occasion, I am not in the mood for the texture of chia seeds, so I ground them in the Vitamix with a dry grains container.  They are then powdery, and smooth and very pudding like.  Kids will never suspect that this is so healthy and good for them!

Tofu Cauliflower Kale Tacos With Lemon Mint Creme

It is Taco Tuesday, and as far as I am concerned, everyday can be  Taco Tuesday.  Corn tortillas are the one thing that those on a gluten free diet can eat without feeling like they have resorted to an inadequate substitute for the gluten version.  Genuine tacos are made with corn tortillas, so there is no deprivation or sacrifice involved.  This vegan version of Tofu Cauliflower Kale Tacos with marinated tofu, cauliflower, kale and peppers is  light and healthy and the tangy lemon mint crème, makes them feel like a treat.  If you enjoy a lower carbohydrate meal, you can serve the stirfy topped with the lemon mint crème, without the tortillas.
