  1. I have recently been drinking chia water with lemon and a little honey in the morning. It makes me feel full faster when I eat my meals during the day. I love chia pudding also. By the way. . . I love that sign in the background!

  2. Thank you! Cant wait to try these recipes, I think even my husband and 2 grown sons will like this healthy options, without them thinking it's too healthy ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. You have an acquired way of talking to adults in the same way you talk to a child which is 'down' to them instead of just sharing your thoughts. What do I mean? Did you talk to your mother the way you talk to us? No, as a child you were real, as an adult you are forcing emphasis and breaking up sentences as though we, the adults, are unable to understand or follow you through. It's annoying, which has nothing to do with you as a person – you're very nice – it has everything to do with how you think about 'us' as children who don't listen or as adults that are equal to your message.

  4. My morning cinnamon/almond/coconut coffee cake. I make a dry mix of equal amounts (16oz) of almond flour, coconut flour, flax seed meal, and xylatol. Add a whole small bottle of cinnamon powder and a whole small can of baking powder, a bunch of chia seeds, whole flax seeds, hulled hemp seeds. Mix with eggs, almond milk, and avocado oil. I microwave mine but you can also bake. It is delicious and helped me loose 95lbs.

  5. The package of organic Chia seeds I have state 2.3g for Carbs per 100g of seeds. You are saying that 1 ounce has 12g of carbs. Your carb content is almost certainly wrong ๐Ÿ™‚
