Today is a special one as I have reached 100 blog posts!! This is terribly exciting! When I started, I was not sure if this would be something I'd be consistent with or would care to invest regular time on. I am so glad it did stick as I have not only found it to be a great outlet but also have found a great community that seems to get me and what issues food and I have. Thank YOU for taking the time to read my ramblings, know I appreciate you reading and taking time to comment. Here's to the next 100!!
Today was a pretty good but busy day. It for sure felt like a Monday to me! I enjoyed a non scale victory today when I realized that, for the first time since ditching the elevator and opting for the stairs up the deck, I made it to the sixth floor with an elevated heart rate but not having to catch my breath. This is much improvement . Although I've never been close to dying once I make it up, I would not be able able to speak in full sentences if I tried. Today I probably could have ( at least short ones ;) ) that's a st p in the right direction!
Yesterday, I asked y'all's thoughts on Chia Seeds. The reason I asked was because a friend of mine had been talking about this superfood and all its alleged super powers. I couldn't figure out what those were called in spanish. After googling,It hit me, that we grew up with them! Back home they are called chan seeds. We only use them in lemonade that is colored red to make it fancy. Yes, I said fancy. No, not pink...bright Red! Don't ask me why this is lol anyway I was shocked at all the ways People consume them . My cousin back home refuses to believe poeple sprinkle them on salads or make pudding with it! I may have to make some fancy red lemonade this summer for the sake of nostalgia haha
Here's my LUNCHBOX OF THE NEXT DAY:
That's some bad lighting :( I have a tomato, onion and cilantro salad with lots of lemon juice. 3oz of chicken breast, one ounce of almonds and a side of radishes. The tomato salad smells so good! Until next time!
