(First blog ever)
I'll be honest, I'm not sure how this blog thing is going to go, but I thought it would be interesting to have a place to store and share information, especially about eating healthy, exercising, running, being in the outdoors, and discussing other hobbies! So, let's start with EAT....
I've recently discovered CHIA seeds! Yes, just like on the "chia pet" commercial, "cha cha cha chia". Chia seeds are high in the healthy omega-3 fatty acids, help our bodies absorb calcium and other nutrients more efficiently, and are touted as an "endurance" superfood, due to the way it changes carbohydrates absorption rate. So far, there doesn't seem to be a downside to these tiny little seeds! I've recently viewed a video for making chia "gel", but so far, I've just used them in my oatmeal and yogurt. I can definitely tell a difference in my energy levels on the mornings I use it in my oatmeal. I will report back here if I find any other specific information on chia seeds, but in the mean time, I encourage you to surf the internet and learn how chia seeds can help you in your daily diet!
And, I want to wish my hubby a happy happy birthday, today!
