Day 5: CHIA!

Day 5 - CHIA I added a new ingredient today that I haven’t tried before – Chia seeds! I’ve heard so much about how great they are for you so I had to give it a try.

I also added yogurt. What’s so important about yogurt is that it MUST be whole fat plain yogurt. No, it won’t make you fat, but it will keep you full for a lot longer.
The low-fat, non-fat or fat-free yogurts are horrible. Well not just yogurts…everything!

All the good fats are taken out and replaced with bad oils and chemicals, hence why they call it a “chemical shit storm“. You can find it at any health store. There’s also a whole fat Greek yogurt at Natural Grocers which is perfect for smoothies.Fat Free Ad

Alright I’m done ranting. Now on to the recipe for Day 5!

CHIA

  • Kale
  • Whole Green Apple
  • Whole Fat Yogurt – just a spooonful
  • 1/4 c. Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 c. Almonds
  • 1/2 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 drops Vanilla Stevia
  • Water

This has a different blandish taste so adding vanilla stevia is a must. The chia seeds give it a grainy texture too. So if you don’t like that you can remove the chia seeds. Sometimes you just have to chug it down when it comes to stuff you don’t like but you know it’s good for you. Story of my life as a picky eater!

Enjoy!
