The summer peaches are delicious and inspired me to create a new gluten free, living foods pie recipe. I tried something different with the crust…added chia sees gel and it was a success. Chia seed is so filling and loaded with nutrients: omega 3 fats, minerals and protein. The Aztecs referred to it as energy food. Try some. It’s great for the mid afternoon slump..when fatigue and exhaustion seem to set in. Gluten free food that supports adrenal fatigue and tastes good…now that’s something to celebrate.
