Come to Mama…Chia

I had  a full afternoon schedule and wanted a lasting snack before I left. So, I made a big protein smoothie and topped it with cereal. I could eat this three times a day and sometimes do.IMG_8154 (800x533)Oh, and this is my other new bowl! Love it because there is a flower printed on the bottom so I’m not as sad when all the food is gone and I’m left with a sad empty bowl.IMG_8158 (800x533)

When I got home I made dinner while Ben hung out and kept me company in the kitchen. We broke into the stash of drinks Mamma Chia sent me. IMG_8162 (533x800)

Mamma Chia is a fairly local company and I met the owner when she was giving out samples at Whole Foods a while back! IMG_8166 (800x533)

I tried one of the flavors then and jumped at the chance to sample more when the company contacted me recently. Since reading Born to Run and feeling a Mexican connection with the Tarahuamara I am a huge fan of chia seeds. image

Dinner was a stir fry with lean turkey I found on manager’s special (I’m good at that game). I mixed it up with a homemade peanut sauce and TJ’s stir fry veggies.IMG_8167 (800x533)(I cooked up a batch of brown rice before my afternoon clients so we wouldn’t have to wait an hour for it.)

I garnished it with green onions and peanuts. That really made it!peanut garnish

I’m thinking either a batch of no bake cookies or a bowl of PB Puffins for dessert…

PS – There’s a contest going on at Mamavation for the healthiest tweeps. It’s a popularity contest, but since I was chubby in high school I’d appreciate the chance to be popular  for once. Thanks.

    Stir fry looks delicious! Love peanut sauces… Have you tried the boil-in-bag brown rice by Success? It takes 10 minutes to cook= time saver :) P.S. I’m a Puffins fanatic, eat them by the spoonful [aka handful]!

      I really like it! It’s sweet, but has a lot of chia seeds in it. They are very “jelly”, but I like that. Actually, I like when they get stuck in my teeth. I’m weird.

    I saw those at Whole Foods yesterday and almost bought every flavor! They looked SO good… but after thinking it out they seemed like they would be too sweet? I ended up not buying any… I guess I am an all or nothing kind of gal haha

    Still going to try them at some point :-)
