Happy Humpday Y’all!
If you take that seriously, I hope y’all got some air conditioning, because it is HOT today! Lord…I was afraid my new toe polish was going to bubble up in the heat.
The heat here in Atlanta is enough to make a girl reach for a regular fully loaded Coca Cola.
But, we aren’t doing that these days, right?
Of course, right.
My fabulosity for today is actually a cool drink. Well, it’s a weird cool drink, but I dig it. It has Chia seeds and juice. I know you are thinking about those commercials from our childhood with the crazy clay heads that sprout hair.
It is the same little seed. Who know I would actually be eating the chia pet hair in my adult years? Now I eat them in all kinds of food. They actually help keep my glucose levels down and keep me full much longer throughout the day than when I don’t eat them.
I started putting them in yogurt, and that was good. Then I found a drink at Whole Foods that had a ton of chia seeds suspended in juice. SOLD! The problem was that those drinks were three bucks and some change. So pricey, and I could only get them at a store that was far from my house.
I started looking online for tutorials on how to make a drink with Chia seeds. I found the one below. It’s pretty helpful. I don’t use a huge amount of juice. Juice will jack up your sugar for real. So, I use lemon juice, cold water and a packet of Stevia in place of the juice. I like it more than the chia drinks that I buy. Mostly because it is cheap cheap cheap and I have control over the flavor.
This is the video…she is a chatty girl but she gives good info:
I know it looks yucky, and it does feel weird…BUT it is a good for you healthy drink with tons of benefits. I enjoy the seeds and the fact that it makes my sugar better makes my life a little more fabulous.
