2) what's the deal with... chia???
first things first.
keep a mental running total of my fiber intake (!)
post workout fuel before my shower: 1c coffee, 1 cup water, 1/2 oz chia seed, packet stevia, cocoa, shake cinnamon, ice. heaven!
after shower: gross looking but AMAZING tasting omlette: 2 eggs, onion, sundried tomato my love, bell pepper, mushrooms, s&p and salsaaaaaaaaa
my new salsa!!! it tastes just like a roasted red pepper. and my old steady lover, sdts.
after grocery shopping (a favorite necessiy): kitchen sink salad - spinach, feta, kashi crackers, sdts, carrot, heirloom baby tomatoes (so cute!), s&p, and basalmic vinegar
ANDDDDDDD an old favorite: laraballs. i have made these before, but in the shape of "bars." the lovely lady here inspired me to make them into balls. she's a genius! i used figs and cashews.... o.m.g.......
i rolled a few in cocoa for my momma. because i love her.
(still counting my fiber!?!?)
because i believe in moderation, i roasted cumin/curry veggies with my chocolate covered bliss.
and ate a small portion....
sorta dinner? i wasn't feelin so hott today and the fam had beef tacos for dinner (don't really do beef) and i was starving early so yeah.
(more fiber. shock.)
i feel like christmas mugs are seasonless.
also, in keeping with my ridiculous fiber total, i ate an unpictured empire apple. it was weird tasting.
so basically i feel like a giant beached whale today with pluto in my belly. but it's cool because pluto isn't a planet anymore. no harm, no foul.
2) i'm sure you guys know way more about chia than i do, but here's my snippet. i heart chia. if you are blissfully unaware, chia seeds are the tiny seeds in... yes.... chia pets.
but you HAVE to eat them! they are easy to throw in smoothies and oats, and they pack fiber, protein, and omega-3s. they also absorb 10 times their size in water, so your oats will make you feel FULL. i could barely finish my workout shake....
but i did :)
have you guys tried chia? have you ever gotten a little over enthusiastic with your veggies? i am still working on that one :)
