Chia-- Here Goes!!!

Good evening! I am so excited- I have a new bloggie chair!!! Our family room started as this...

And turned into this!!

Nice, yeah?! The most comfy chair ever.

Ahhhhhh... the perfect place to blog.... in front of Dog. HAHA! This is a GREAT show to work out to by the way! As soon as I'm done blogging I'm going to be busting out some weights! I want to look like Duane Lee- he's HUGE. Ok so maybe not...

Tonight I made my 'famous' ESPN Club inspired roasted veggie sandwich. In today's recipe, I used zucchini, yellow squash, banana pepper, tomato (all from the farmer's market) and onion. Everything but the tomato was coated in a wee bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roasted at 325 for 15ish minutes (until tender). I layered the veggies on some toasted Ezekiel Bread and a mixture of smooshed avocado, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and Franks Red Hot sauce. HEAVEN ON A PLATE.

This paired with an organic apple-- oooohh so good!!!

Since everyone in bloggie land has been talking about Chia seeds (thanks Angela!!), I decided to pick some up and try them!

I had some organic yogurt and blueberries, and topped it with 1 T of Chia seeds. By the end of my yogurt, the seeds had started to turn into the gel... weird! But, they're good for me, so I'll keep at it for a few days and see how I do!

Have a lovely evening! I'm off to exercise and watch Dog! Namaste.

Excellent choice on the chia seeds!

I love the way they gel up and make stuff thicker. Try them in a Green Monster and, with the frozen banana, it'll be like a milkshake. (~:

Let me know if you want to go in on a bulk order. I found them online (thru Heather Eats Almond Butter) for $8.86 per 16 oz. Delivery included!
