This recipe is stolen from 7 Day Sugar Cleanse and is an amazing substitute for the dreaded SNACK ATTACK time that creeps up on all of us. Carrots have a natural sweetness, but it's nothing to be frightened of. The goodness of all the other things in carrots helps to metabolize the sweetness so that it doesn't spike blood glucose levels at the rate of other sugars.
Using natural sugars like honey and maple syrup are incredibly better for your body and your immune system. Although vinegar may not be for everyone (like my candida clients), balsamic vinegar provides a nice sweet/tangy component to foods. Reducing it alone will give you a glaze that will add even more sweet/tanginess to whatever you're eating. I like to drizzle some on tomatoes with basil and maybe some buffalo mozzarella. Here is a nice dressing that can be used over a green salad or reduced down into a glaze for fish or chicken.
Chia seeds are an amazing little tool to have in your cupboard. Chia Seeds Deliver a Massive Amount of Nutrients With Very Few Calories. They are loaded with antioxidants, almost all the carbs in them are fiber and when combined with their very high quality protein, they are ideal for those who may want to lose weight. And let's not forget about the Omega-3 fatty acids. Chia Seeds are definitely a super food.
