So this blog about my chia pet kind of failed. The chia kitty was a success, but then I forgot to water it for a few days, so it died:(
However, I have rediscovered chia seeds after reading about it in Born to Run by Christopher McDougall. I followed a recipe I found online and this far it is delicious. Don’t really feel any beneficial effects as I have not gone running yet (have a knee injury).
Here is the recipe:
To make 1 glass:
8 oz of water
2.0-2.5 teaspoons of Chia Seeds
1 lime to squeeze
2 teaspoons of sugar (or however much you want to sweeten the taste, I found two works best for me).
Mix water, sugar, and juice from the lime until dissolved. Add Chia Seeds and shake or stir. Serve it chilled.
