Sampling a Superfood + A New Way to Get Extra Calcium

After a grueling spin/yoga class yesterday, I needed a pick me up.  We had a substitute instructor, who I’m pretty sure I heard say that she was pregnant, so the class wouldn’t be as intense as usual.

Um… that was a lie.

I’ve decided I like my standard instructors, no subs.  I literally hated class this week, and that’s a first.  I think I made the decision to detest this class when she did a crow pose during the yoga part of the class.  UGH!

She did this, and other poses “just to play around a little.”  REALLY?

Remember, I LOVE Yoga.  I finally get yoga.  I don’t really know what happened during that 30 minute class.  Seriously.  All I could think of was that Gen would be back next week, and that it’s not polite to bust out laughing in a serious class like this. 

So, I decided to do what any girl would do after a torturous class… I went to get myself some delicious lunch to refuel.  AND… there just happened to be a Whole Foods right near where I was at.  (I promise, this will eventually stop.) And, no big surprise, I had a delightful dish that looks a lot like something I’ve blogged about before.

I am a HUGE fan of Peanut Butter Fingers, and have enjoyed reading about Julie’s adventures and healthy eating for some time.  She’s talked about two things several times that I’ve always wanted to try.  Why not try them today?

Chia Seeds + Adora Calcium Supplements

I’m shocked I made it home without trying the calcium supplements.  I’d tried the calcium chew type supplements (i.e. Viactiv), but nothing could have prepared me for how delicious the Adora supplements are.  I now wish I had gotten the dark chocolate ones, too!

They’re LITERALLY little chocolate disks.  OH MY GOODNESS.  They’re about the size of a quarter (maybe a little bit larger.)  The packaging suggests that you eat one with every meal.  Um…OK!  I think I’m going to have a harder time eating just three two a day, as is recommended for my age. They’re REALLY good.  Each one has 30 calories and 2g of fat.  Cheers!

Julie from PBF does all sorts of cool things with these little guys and recently did a freelance article for Shape Magazine about them.  I’ve also read recently that Chia Seeds are being called a Superfood. Incorporating them into my meals somehow sounds like a good idea.  They bring extra fiber into your world, and I’m going to have to do some research on their other benefits. 

For today, I just tried them plain and they taste a little nutty.  I think it’s hilarious to think that they are the real deal Chia Pet seeds, and I’m planning to eat them. 

Check out Julie’s page for all the great ways she uses them.  In granola, cereal, yogurt, smoothies, pancakes… the possibilities are endless.  I’ll keep you posted on what I decide to do with them too!
