So…despite my diet being made up of mostly beer - with the occasional cocktail because they tell you to eat all colors the rainbow - I think im losing Some weight but regardless between the stretching the calisthenics and the biking the kayaking I feel pretty dang good. but i need a way to track the experiments with eating. Welcome tumblr to being my confessor.
for breakfast i had my new favorite mushy meal. chia seeds soaking in milk over night with a touch of maple syrup. but this time i added raisins I also added frozen blueberries but they didn’t taste right tooo much like cheap booberry crunch in flavor and not the right texture sticking to raisins… the creepy part is that they form a starchy mass with little seeds like tapioca but without the chew. it works. though i suspect if i had to eat it repeatedly it would be creepy. it doesn’t have the lusciousness of custard. but i like it and it goes well with coffee.
1/4 cup of chia seeds
1 cup milk
1/4 cup raisins.
tablespoon of maple sugar leave in fridge overnight
in my experience it helps when you stir it up in the morning to add a splash more milk.
so our loose stats are:
460 calories i think i’d skip the raisins and have the fiber of an apple instead. Raisins are 160 calories.
But here is the deal 18 grams of protein, 8 g of fiber and omega 3s. so for a breakfast before a ride or other activity i think it fit the bill maybe id add an apple
