Somebody. . . used all the milk this morning! No CSL for me.
Because of the hot weather yesterday, thankfully, a smoothie sounded really good.
Into the blender: strawberry chobani yogurt, 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1/2 cup OJ.
Topped with: 1/2 t chia seeds, 1/8 cup banana chips
It was cool and creamy and yummy! I love how chia seeds absorb some of the water and turn into gel-like pieces. My new favorite thing.
And I love the nutritional information of chia seeds! I read this on Carrots ‘N’ Cake:
In terms of nutritional content, a tablespoon of chia is like a smoothie made from salmon, spinach, and human growth hormone. As tiny as those seeds are, they’re superpacked with omega-3s, omega-6s, protein, calcium, iron, zinc, fiber, and antioxidants. If you had to pick just one desert-island food, you wouldn’t do much better than chia, at least if you were interested in building muscle, lowering cholesterol, and reducing your risk of heart disease; after a few months on the chia diet, you could probably swim home.
I hope they help make up for my dessert last night!
Abby was interested in dessert too! She had obviously recovered from our HOT run!
Off to work. . . have a great Wednesday! See ya tonight.
