Ch-ch-ch-chia

I’m still breastfeeding (yup, we talk about boobs on this blog!), so I try to eat a lot of healthy fats and good-for-baby food, such as whole grains, protein, nuts and greens. Honestly, this process of feeding my daughter has gotten me into the habit of feeding myself better because I know she’s getting the nutrients also. I think she appreciates it:

She loves chia seeds too!

One thing I’ve found that is high in Omega-3’sĀ are chia seeds.

Ch-ch-ch-chia!

Ch-ch-ch-chia!

They look weird, but the verdict? They’re very filling and have a yummy nutty crunch to them. You know, once you get over the fact that it looks like little ants in your food.

Chia Ants

Mmmm...food ants!

So far, I’ve only added them to my oatmeal (1 tbsp every morning) but you can also add them to smoothies, yogurt and juices. Oh, and BONUS! After some googling I found out that these bad boys are the same things you make chia pets with! So guess what I did today?

The beginning of my chia garden.

When the space by my front door starts to look like a chia garden, I will let you know.
