Some standard fare

Today has been not so shockingly unoriginal so far.  Still super tasty though! I don't imagine anything spectacular happening for dinner so I'm just gonna post now while I'm at my computer.

Breakfast: Gorgeous fruit salad with pineapple, cherries, grapes and strawberries.

Lunch: Rice and beans and veggies.  It was really good!

Post workout will be another protein shake.  Dinner will presumably be a chopped salad...

I just read about the insane health benefits chia seeds and totally want to try it.  I found a recipe for chia seed pudding I'm considering making for breakfast or maybe a midmorning snack on heavy workout days.  Has anyone had any experience with them? How do you like it?  Do you feel like you have more energy after you eat them because that is supposedly one of the biggest benefits.  Let me know!!


  1. I made some chia pudding about a week ago, and it was pretty tasty. I couldn't tell that it gave me energy though. I put them in my smoothies and make overnight oats with them too. They are just so good for you. :o)

  2. Chia seeds AND oats?! OMG that sounds right up my alley!! Do you have a recipe?

  3. I used to make the pudding (Two TBSPs Chia Seeds stirred into a cup of Almond Milk and left for a few hours till it sets up) for Mr. SV a year or two ago. It's just like Tapioca.

  4. Oooh yay thanks! I'm going to Whole Foods tonight so i'm going to pick some up. Can't wait to try it, I read it was like tapioca so I thought it would be fun to experiment with!
