a NEW taste Tuesday

Happy Tuesday. I hope you’re having a great day!

You know, most of the time, I choose “floats” over milkshakes. Nothing beats a good root beer float! But I tried a NEW flavor recently to use up a bottle of random strawberry lime soda I had in the pantry. I liked the red/white color contrast and it tasted yummy too. What’s in your pantry you can make a NEW concoction with? Whip up something NEW today!

NEW taste Tuesday

chia

Happy Tuesday. I’m in love!…with chia seeds. I’m in love with how easy it is to get these nutritious seeds into my bod.  I remember being on vacation and needing something ‘healthy’ to drink. (You know, sometimes vacation food can feel like….YUK!  As in, ‘I need some good homemade REAL food’)  Well, that day I bought my first chia seed ‘health-drink’ and it was kind of weird – the texture was different.  It cost a pretty penny.  And the taste was, eh…ok.  But my homemade chia drink…I think is delicious.  I am now used to the texture and love that making this drink is so easy.  Basically all you do is soak the chia seeds overnight then add them to cran-grape juice (or juice of your choice) in the a.m. Yum!  It waters down the grape juice, which is good, because it has too much sugar anyway.  Win-win!

Chia seeds have more omega 3’s than salmon, more potassium than bananas, more calcium than milk, and are loaded with antioxidants. They’re a complete protein.  Nice!

Have a great day! Do or drink something NEW!
