Chia seeds would have to be one of my favourite foods. I have diverticulosis..(that’s where you have little pockets in your gut that can trap seeds etc yucky..AND painful)..so chia wasn’t something I could eat in, say a bread with chia seeds in it.

For women, the RDI of omega-3s is 1.1 grams (1,100 mg) a day, so if you’re looking for a new food source that’s vegan, gluten-free, and easy to digest, then these babies are your new bestie.

About two tablespoons contains:

137 calories,one gram of saturated fat, 11 grams of fibre, 4 grams of protein, 177 milligrams of calcium, and 4.9 grams of omega-3 fatty acids.

So nutritionally speaking, these little guys rock.

Oh. Em. Gee

This is my most favourite  breakfast recipe when I want to have a sweet breakfast.

Here’s one of my favourite Avocado recipes. and its a DESSERT!!

#1. Where do you get your protein from?

I’ve already done a blog on protein so don’t really want to go into that again today, but its interesting just how little the majority of people know about how to get protein from plants. Plus, they worry of they’re going to get enough.
