I wish that I could take credit for this fun little jingle, but alas, I am not that witty. Actually…you know those moments when your mind is blown by the simplest things? Yeah, chia seeds and I had this moment a while back. I had no idea that chia seeds were also the chia that grew grass on heads. And dogs. And cats. Sometimes I wonder how my brain and I have made it this far.
Christmas is almost here and it is exciting! I love Christmas and I am pretty much done all the shopping, but I still have to shop for the man. We decided to do a scale down this year. There is just too much STUFF (I capitalize because this is currently how I feel about it, it’s too big and too much!). I actually feel like this is the cause of cholesterol. STUFF. It just clogs your arteries and gives you heart disease. If we really wanted to go into a deep philosophical discussion about this, we could say that STUFF does clog our heart centre and cause disease. It fuels a cycle of materialism, blocks connection to each other and can be down right soul sucking. I do not need anymore stuff, he doesn’t and neither does D. I want to have a wonderful Christmas that is about family, fantastic food and laughter.
BUT, if a pair of Louboutin’s came wrapped in a box, well, I suppose I make room for those babies in my heart…err, my closet.
This fun recipe is great for breakfast, snack or a sweet treat. It is packed with spice and a special ingredient that you would not normally find. Fresh ginger. I think this makes all the difference. I had two awesome people test this recipe out and they gave me the thumbs up! Or actually, it was said that it was some yummy puddin. More wittiness that I cannot claim. Enjoy!
Chi Chi Chi Chia Chai Latte

6 tbsp of chia seeds
1/4 cup of honey

- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp ground allspice
1. Mix all ingredients together in a tall tupperware container. Mix really well so the chia seeds do not get stuck in lumps. Let sit in the fridge overnight. Open the fridge in the morning, give it a stir and it’s a breakfast NOM! Top with whatever you like or leave it as is.
