it was a beautiful december morning!
we have had a couple of cold snaps but so far it's been mostly normal temps for us for this time of year.
although we have a pretty healthy diet, by giving up all dairy and getting so sick, we knew we had to pull out the big guns in order to super dose on nutrients! enter chia fresca! this drink is so nutrient dense and when you add some lemon or ginger and honey - you create a super kind of gatorade!
i won't lie - it is a very gelatinous drink and as i have a problem with texture, i have to choke mine down. jambaloney doesn't mind it at all and says it tastes like tapioca pudding or bubble tea.
i like to put a variety of seeds in our salads and whatnot and we love chia seeds. but apparently soaking them for about 20 mins in room temperature water, then adding lemon or ginger and honey turns them from a super food to a super-super food! i'll make myself drink that for sure!
we also busted out another tool to help us get as much nutrients as possible - "the green machine"! (no 1st Man - not THAT green machine!!!)
we started using our green star juicer which hadn't seen the light of day in quite a while. here is a delicious cup of pure juice from some kale, cilantro, parsley, a tomatoe, a mandarine, our own carrots, celery and radish - deelish!
i have never been a big fan of the "juicing movement", i am a big believer in eating your food! however, if you are in need of some fast nutrients due to health problems or just not feeling well, then a good dose of pure juice is in order.
so we'll be drinking our slimy chia seeds, consuming hemp hearts on everything, eating lots of green veg and drinking our juice for the next while. the LobstersRUs xmas party is next saturday evening and we are really looking forward to it! we'll both be hurting units after it tho - bahahahaha!
i'll try to get around to your blogs in a bit. right now there are some eggs benedict crying to be made - i looooove hollandaise!
