Went to lunch with my neighbor again yesterday. (Long story but this has GOT to stop. She is draining much too much of my time/energy. But I digress.)

Again the restaurant was new to me and a trendy place. She likes trendy places. I can take 'em or leave 'em. For their prices I'd just as soon leave 'em. Again I digress.

The menu had a Chia pudding. I have heard a lot about Chia seeds recently. So I ordered the pudding. I am happy to report that it was VERY tasty and filling. It was topped with some berries of different sorts, a little shredded coconut and a slivered almond or two. VERY HEALTHY STUFF.

When I got home I checked up on Chia news and recipes on Spark and other places. Most recipes were super simple to make. I do believe I shall getting some seeds of my own soon (without the planters to go with them.)

They are supposed to be chock full of Omega 3s and fiber. The fiber I can still feel. My innards have been bubbling away all last night and into this morning. That's a good sign that the good bacterial in the intestines are happily munching away and hopefully multiplying.

    I saw a TV article when I was in Phoenix about how healthy and great tasting chia seeds are for us. Guess I will need to look some recipes and give it a try. Imagine the seeds are found in the grocery stores that are healthy foods places.

    I tried my hand at some homemade chia pudding about 6 months ago -- it was good! I need to make more and try some variations (fruit, coconut, etc.) Very healthy indeed!
