chia

Chia seeds are tiny black and white seeds that used to be a staple food in Aztec and Mayan times. They are now experiencing a resurgence in popularity due to their wonderful health benefits.

Mikelle had gone for a zone and one of the things the gal discovered right away was that she was “backed up!”  Yes, and, apparently, so was baby Easton. Mikelle had been having little dark brown marble-sized p**p for months and how a woman who explored her health and wellness through touching her feet  figured that out in a split second, I’ll never know. It’s a first cousin to muscle testing, which I also, do not understand!

She recommended chia seeds.

Chia Seeds As Superfood [from Lisa Bishop at Grain Free Recipes]

Chia seeds are indeed a superfood. They have

  • 2x the amount of protein of any grains
  • 3x the amount of antioxidants of blueberries
  • 5x more calcium than milk
  • 2x the amount of potassium in a banana
  • 3x the iron of spinach

Chia seeds are also loaded with Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and have trace amounts of boron, which is an essential mineral to help transfer calcium to the bones. This is all from http://grainfreerecipes.com/1260/how-to-use-chia-seeds

Wow. You know I’m going to glom onto that! So I got my own supply and have been using them in my green smoothies all week. Beware! There is a a down side to this.

Yesterday morning I was up on a 16-foot ladder doing the marquee for April and I had the urge to [how can I say this?] eliminate. Long story short, I did not make the 200-yard dash to the building in time.

Some days I feel so blessed! I am lucky to work at a place that has not one, not two, but three washers and dryers in the building!

    First of all are you REALLY writing about this?! Oh my! Logan might be laughing really hard right now. Remember when we were on the phone and you begged me not to tell him — well I didn’t! And, really, now everyone knows what my poo was looking like. hmmmm thanks ma! =)
