I’m still juicing, but am exploring new veggies and fruit to add to my recipe.The blender we received for our wedding is finally seeing light. I made a green smoothie with spinach, peanut butter, almond milk, flaxseed, greek yogurt, and banana.
I also watched Hungry for Change and they mentioned Chia Seeds. At first, I was like, chia what? But after researching, I found out that they are super rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, and has tons of fiber, AND it’s also good for weight loss. Yay!
Now, I dump a tablespoon of chia seeds in my family’s yogurt, smoothies, cereal, and drinks.
*My son first panicked when he saw the seeds…he thought it was “trash” and was determined to pick every last seed out of his cereal. Mommy, I take out trash! Lol*
I also found this super easy, super tasty quinoa chicken recipe. It tastes just like any ‘ole chicken fingers, but has the added bonus of quinoa : high protein, fiber, iron, and calcium. My son likes to drench them in honey mustard. Delicious.
Last but not least, I’ve been trying different types of salads--other than lettuce with tomatoes and cucumbers.
After making this, my husband mentioned that this was just a chunky guacamole. Ummmm...I guess...
…and the best thing about all this? I’ve lost almost 10 pounds!! Yay!!
