DAY 3 & SOLE SISTERS

by

Ladies,

I feel great!  How about you?   This challenge seems like a piece of cake so far.  The motivation is high and the support system is top notch =) !  Let’s try to maintain this all the way….
Please join us in posting on our Facebook group page if you have Facebook.   If you need an invite, let me know.  I’ll be starting a mini photo challenge on Monday.

Let’a talk about CHIA SEEDS!

chia+seeds

What are they?
“Chia” means strength.  They’re tiny, edible, black and white seeds that come from a plant grown in Mexico.  Folklore has it that the Mayans and Aztecs used to use them as energy boosters….that would make sense since they  contain healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium.  Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain food that can be absorbed by the body as seeds (unlike flaxseeds which is why I always recommend flaxseed oil.)

Approximately 2 tablespoons contains 139 calories, 4 g of protein, 9 g fat, 12 g carbs & 11 g of fiber (plus vitamins and minerals).   They are most often sprinkled on cereal, sauces, vegetables, rice dishes, or yogurt or mixed into smoothies and baked goods.

TRY THIS for your next MEAL…
