Good morning! :) I’m so happy it’s the weekend.
I have so much stuff to do this morning, but most of it will be fun!
- bank for $ for market
- farmer’s market
- grocery store
- bookstore for gifts
- eye appointment to order contacts
- library? we’ll see.
Then back home to eat + get ready for an afternoon on the river!
Last night, I mixed up some muesli so I would have a quick breakfast this morning, only this one had a new ingredient.
This mix has:
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup water
Then this morning I added:
- 2 spoonfuls of yogurt
- fresh strawberries + raspberries
- trail mix
Diane from GreensPlus was kind enough to send me some of their Omega3-Chia seeds to try, so today was my first trial! I think I put a little too much in this little dish, but they’re definitely filling! I can’t wait to try them in other ways – I already have some other recipes bookmarked and waiting :)
So what is chia seed?
Salvia hispanica, also known as Chia (pronounced chee’ah), is the richest and only unprocessed, whole food source of pure Omega3. A member of the mint family, Chia is native to Central America and has been used traditionally for over 3000 years.Ancient Aztec warriors prized Chia as an endurance–promoting Superfood, eating it in bread just before battle, and drinking it in water before running long distances on foot. Mixed in lemonade or fruit juice (known as chia fresca) Omega3 Chia seed quickly becomes a refreshing, performance-enhancing energy drink. (From GreensPlus.com).
If YOU would like to try chia seeds too, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org! I know it’s hard to find in some areas, so definitely contact her if you’re interested in trying them. I see lots of fun smoothies, yogurt, puddings, etc in my future :) I actually made one recipe with them last night, but I’m waiting to post it until I try it!
