Vegan Mofo VI- Day 14- Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia!
I have had the worst energy/motivation issue all week. I did not want to do a damn thing, but of course I had lots of damn wonderful things that needed my attention. In the past I would have just drank a bunch of tea and knocked items off my list one after the other. Now that I know I have htx* I've been trying even harder to avoid caffeine.
When my sister came by earlier in the week she brought chocolate soy milk and left it here for me to enjoy. I don't really drink soy milk now that I am in love with almond milk, but I do use it in recipes I plan to share with my allergy-ridden sister and niece. I didn't have any pancakes or other yummy breakfast foods I chug chocolate milk with so I wasn't sure what to do with it. After a quick look around , I saw had a pile of bananas getting too ripe too fast and I had my chia seeds in the fridge so I threw them all the blender and had a tasty treat in minutes. Oh, I also sprinkled in some cinnamon. There are probably other things you can add to make it healthier. I need to remember to add peanut butter for extra awesomeness next time.
By the time you read this I will be strutting my stuff at the AIDS Walk. I managed to raise some funds at the last minute, but I will need to start earlier and try harder next year, which will be lucky #7 for me.
*htx= hypertension. My pharmacist friend taught me that.
