Chia Fizz!

Onto the chia fizz. And boy was it tasty! The recipe is from Clean Eating magazineI didn't have a muddler, so I used our juicer instead, it worked pretty well!This is how it looked before I put it in the fridge for 10 minutes, and pretty much how it looked afterwards.Now, I am not a texture person, I don't mind it really at all. but the seeds don't disappear into the drink, you can definitely feel them, but they don't have a taste. and the drink was so fresh!
Overall, I loved it. However, I had HUGE mint leaves. The recipe called for 12 and I used 12. I have a feeling they meant 12 mini leaves, so there was (and is) altogether too much mint. I may add a wee bit more Agave next time too. I finished the mixture and there are still chia seeds ands juice in the mint leaves and lime so I added my tap water to it, and I'm on my second glass of mint water. yum! A great fresh summertime drink. It clocks in at 100 calories 15 g carbs 6 g fiber, 4 g fat 2 g protein. Not bad for a drink and that is a TON of fiber. I hit my fiber goal today without a fiber one bar. YAY!The package of chia seeds was kind of hard to find. I located them with assistance in the nutritional supplements aisle. This is what it looks like.

So far so good. I have not felt hungry at all today, mind you, we did just have dessert before dinner, but I wasn't hungry before that! I think they can stick around and be a component of my diet. I'll let you know if I see any changes on the scale!
