Yesterday, I added a little somethin' extra to my overnight oats:
A few days ago when Dan was rummaging through the pantry he gave me a weird look and asked, "Why did you buy bird food?" Ha! he then starting singing the "Chi Chi Chi Chia" Chia Pet song, which I thought was silly, until I found out that they are the exact same seeds. Ka-razy.
I have always thought the animals were kind of cute, but the people heads totally creep me out.
I know I am a little late to the chia seed party, but better late than never. If Dr. Oz recommends them, you know they must be required for life to continue Hehehe.
These little suckers pack a ton of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. They also added a nice flavor and texture to my overnight oats and left me feeling a little extra full. Next step: put them in my green monster.
Yesterday I watched the Ricky Martin / Latino episode of Glee and I livin-da-vida-loca-ed my way through 4.8 miles. Why can't a new episode of Glee be on everyday?
Overnight oats--notice the bird food...
|Lunch: left-over white chicken chili, carrots, radishes, an apple (9)|
I added cinnamon and Splenda to my afternoon popcorn. It was everything I could hope for and more. Do this the next time you pop some popcorn.
For dinner, I had high hopes for the chicken tikka masala I had thrown in the crock pot that morning (click *here* for the recipe). I had a serious hankering for Indian food. But, this didn't do the trick. It wasn't bad, and probably tasted like authentic Indian food, but that wasn't what I wanted. I wanted Americanized-Indian food. Sigh.
|Rice (6) and chicken tikka massala (6)|
I will be stuck with it for leftovers for the next few days.
|Dessert: All Bran with 2% milk (8)|
