  • 4 celery stalks, diced
  • diced cucumber (small regular one or a Persian)

Combine all in a bowl, stirring well to combine mashing some of the avocado and egg a little bit. Taste and adjust mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper to liking.
Always start with the lesser amount of ingredients and adjust taste with more if needed. Can be eaten alone, over a bed of spinach or even as a sandwich in a lettuce wrap.

Blueberry Chia Sauceblueberry chia sauce

1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp  water

In a small sauce pan, heat all ingredients together on low-medium heat. Stir your sauce frequently so it doesn’t burn to the pan. I cooked mine for about 3ish minutes. Before serving, I let it sit in a small bowl for an additional 3-5 minutes to further thicken.
Tastes wonderful on oatmeal.  Make different variations of this sauce with mango, strawberry, raspberry.

Chia seeds are a superior source of amino acids, fiber and antioxidants. A few teaspoons of chia gel with the main meal of the day will slow down sugar  absorption, making this Superfood  highly recommended for diabetics.    They are also one of the best sources of Omega 3′s on the planet!..

Due to their hydrophilic structure chia seeds absorb 20 times their weight, expanding in liquid, and forming a gelatinous texture that can be easily added to smoothies and salad dressings; these amazing seeds make a delectable “tapioca” pudding when added to nut milk.
