I heard that hot water will kill any of the healthy enzymes in raw honey - is this true?

Hello Dorena,

Thanks for asking! Boiling water can reduce the enzymes in raw honey but hot water should be fine. If you can drink it a beverage than it most likely will be at a temperature that will not reduce the enzyme level. Consider the fact that the honey will be raised to body temperature as soon as you consume it.

Cheers, Julie

Hi Julie,
Thanks for this recipe.
How many servings is this recipe? 1 or multiple?
My 8 year old son complained about the texture of the seeds. Do the chia seeds become less noticeable the longer you leave it? Can it be made the night before?
Thanks

Hello Andrea,

Thanks for writing in. This is a recipe I use for one adult breakfast but you could share ;-)

As for the centre seed, it does not get any softer as it is the shell of the seed. You could try ground ground chia seed but the pudding will turn out a bit different.

Cheers, Julie

Hi Jen,

You can find Hemp Hearts in many grocery stores now. Even Costco is selling them.

Here's a link to more information: https://juliedaniluk.com/manitoba-harvest-hemp/nutrition/the-power-of-hemp-nutrition.html

You can leave them out but they are very high in nutrients and very tasty!

Hello Ann,

Thanks for writing in. If you would like to do a nutritional break down of my recipes you can use this website: https://www.myfooddiary.com It has a recipe analysis built into the website.

That said I encourage people not to fixate on the nutritional content of the recipes for various reasons. Some of these points are covered in my article 'Should We Be Counting Calories?'
https://juliedaniluk.com/food-facts/should-we-be-counting-calories.html?highlight=WyJjYWxvcmllcyJd

I then expand on these points in my book 'Slimming Meals That Heal: Lose weight without dieting using anti-inflammatory superfoods.' https://juliedaniluk.com/books/slimming-meals-that-heal-by-julie-daniluk.html

Cheers, Julie
