I try and eat two tablespoons of chia seeds a day in order to reach optimal levels of Omega 3-fatty acids. Chia is truly natures little miracle if you think about it. In case you didn't know, the seeds have 8x the amount of Omega-3 than salmon does, 6x more calcium than milk, 3x more iron than spinach, 15x more magnesium than broccoli, 2x more fiber than bran flakes, 6x more protein than kidney beans, and 4x more phosphorus than whole milk.
Sometimes I throw the seeds into my protein shakes, other times I add chia to my water with a squeeze of lime. But this recipe has forevermore revolutionized the way I'll be consuming chia. HOLY COW. This pudding is sinful. And the best part about it? It's healthy! I was left feeling full, satisfied, and energized for the rest of the morning.
Every once in a while the world feels heavy and noisy and hectic all at once. In these moments I have to gather myself and regroup. I set out a blanket in the grass as the sun is setting, when all the busy bees are settling home from work. The world suddenly seems so still, so quiet. It feels like mine alone. In these moments I sit in silence, legs crossed, eyes closed, and I find my center again. Sometimes, like in the picture below, I make a mug of hot cocoa, and really rejoice in the fact that I'm alive. And life is beautiful. The universe is on our side, it is bubbling over with love and life and grand opportunities. Everything you need is right here, within you. You just need to take a step back and breathe, center yourself, find your roots again and trust.
It was a sunny afternoon over a year ago when I first tried this dish at the Lyon family home. We were gathered around in the living room balancing plates of delectable vegetable dishes on our laps, this being one of them. I remember trying to guess the ingredients in the sauce, there was something so delicious that I couldn't put my finger on. Turns out it was cocoa powder! You're going to have to taste this for yourself to appreciate the magical powers of the cocoa in this dish- then we can sing it's praises together!
