What am I eating now days?

These taste soooooooooooooo GOOD !

I am sooooooooo proud to say I made my first gluten free raw chips made with Chia seeds and flax seeds and all kinds of herbs and veggies. Check how to do it with this video

Chia and Flax Seed Crackers Recipe

*( for half a batch if you are using a regular size blender. You can double it if you have a high powered blender like Vitamix or Blendtec.)

*You will also need a dehydrator to make the recipe.

1/3 cup of flax seeds .... soak in 1 cup of filtered water over night

1/4 cup of chia seeds ( black is just fine)...soak in 2 1/2 cups of filtered water over night

1 cup of celery rough cut

1/2 lime removed from skin

1/4 tsp to 1 tsp of Celtic salt ( What is and why use Celtic Salt)

10 cloves of garlic ( remove the middle sprout to avoid the bad breath syndrome)

1 med. onion roughly cut

1/4 tsp of chipolata or some kind of spicy powder.
( I used a home blend of Cajun spices. If I remember it right I increased it to 1/2 tsp., play with it and taste it before you make it into crackers.)

1 Tablespoon or more of oregano dried or fresh

Handful of fresh Parsley
Handful of basil ...both chopped

I used 1 Red Bell Pepper instead of tomatoes but you can actually add both and is is amazing.

Mix all ingredients in vita-mixer. Start slow and bring it up slowly. Blend for 30 seconds or so. Drop by tablespoonfuls on sheet (4 across). They will look high but they thin out as they dehydrate. Temperature 105*F to 110*F ( ...no higher otherwise the enzymes die.)

Turn them after 14 hours, I had also sprinkled flax seeds on them before dehydrating them. YUM !

***After I had turned them I think I dried them a another couple of hours. I would say that it took about 16 hours to totally dry them.

Here are a couple very informative videos I really recommend to watch....

Later today I am also going to be giving my favorite right now ...summer lentil salad recipe over at " eating the Master's way" blog.
Hope to see you there.


  1. Oh Mary...how do the crackers taste? They don't have such a great appeal, but it is the taste that will be the deciding factor :)


  2. They are soooooooooo GOOD. Even my hubby and boys LOVE them. They would eat them all in one evening if I let them, lol.

  3. I'll have to give those crackers a try. How long do they take to make?


    THANK YOU for tipping me off (more than once now) to my comment link being AWOL. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why it's doing that! Argh!

    Wishing you and yours a blessed weekend and Lord's Day! In Him, ~Lisa

    PS: So curious what your weather is like in B.C. We're experiencing the coolest July I think we've ever had here in SW Washington. It didn't even break 70 yesterday. :( So much for trying to grow corn...

  4. I've always soaked, and sprouted, but those chips! I am so impressed and they look just like my favorite spendies from the health food store. I'm leaving for the weekend (helping my son-in-law and daughter move, and a wedding over the mountain) but I can't wait to try this when I get back!

    Blessings, Debbie

  5. Wow, thanks for sharing all this information that you are learning, great stuff!

  6. Lisa,

    It took me about 16 hours to dry the crackers in the dehydrator.

    Also it has been one of the coldest summers I have know here in the last almost 14 yrs. I am not sure what will will get other than the cold weather plants. ((sigh))


  7. Thank you for sharing! I'm glad they worked out so well for you.
    It is always encouraging to find treats like that when you have a new diet.

  8. Wonderful! I am glad you are enjoying them. I think my son can eat those. Hmmm! I will have to try them.

  9. I'm about to leave for vacation, but when I get back, I want to try to find the chia seeds and maybe try to make this. I'm a big flax seed fan because of the benefits. I read about the chia seeds on your earlier post. That's completely new to me.

  10. Mary, I like the sound of these crackers a lot!
    I bought Chia seeds the other day and I'm going to share them with my friend who is also trying to get healthier.
    Thanks for the recipes!
    bless you..Trish

  11. By the way, my 12 year old just saw this post on my Google Reader and asked in the most disgusted voice he could muster, "What, is THAT?" Too funny. :) Now I really want to try making a batch! Blessings, ~Lisa

  12. Your crackers look so good! You are so very creative. I love all the visuals with your post!
    I love flax seed. It is yummy in everything. However I discovered it is too harsh for my system. ( sad face) Its very good for you and really helpful with the diet, I use wheat germ a lot in place of the flax.
    Chia seeds? I will find some! I have beans and seeds for sprouting and we plan to do this in the fall. With our high humidy here its too hard to sprout without mold. I love sprouts!


Thank you, each sweet comment brightens my day. Blessings!
