Lap Band Surgery in a Seed? Docs Rave About Chia!
« on: May 31, 2013, 11:59:54 AM »
Hi, Gang! :)

Here's an interesting article about the benefits of chia seeds,
why overweight people are often malnourished,
and the role of refined carbohydrates in that malnourishment;

http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/healthscience/2013/May/Lap-Band-Surgery-in-a-Seed-Docs-Rave-About-Chia/

I have used chia seeds on occasion in recipes.
But now, I'm going to enjoy them every day! :) :) :)

Hey, Everyone!!!

How much do you put in shakes/muffins?  When using Chia, should I decrease/omit another ingredient?

Umpa (and everyone) please share your shake/protein drink recipes...  Gotta come up with something for breakfast other than Isopure protein powder - been doing this for b'fast  (5 days/week) for the past several years, and now my tummy/gut is not handling it well. 

Doug/Umpa - are you guys still in NC or have you settled down in the Keys for the season?  Soooo excited to turn the A/C off down here  in S. Fla (Palm Beach County).  Actually opened the windows recently for a few days...then temps/humidity went back up...then opened again yesterday and today - temps/humidity going back up this week and a/c will once again be purring, but sooo looking forward to Florida Fall temps...SOON!!  Actually, the "snowbirds" arrive before our lower temperatures do!! :) :)

Honestly, does anyone anywhere have good consistent weather?  At the moment we are in spring with summer just around the corner.  The other day it was all 4 seasons in one with the main being pelting rain and arctic winds, intermittent with blue sky and hot sun.  Today is glorious but heading towards hot.  I hate hot.  Isn't there anywhere where it's wonderful and CONSISTENT?

Welcome OrsinPeach55! I am Umpa ,Dougs wife if I can help you please ask.I have a column on the homepage called ask umpa where I can convert your favorite foods to fat to skinny friendly.Enjoy the forum :)

Romarc we left North Carolina yesterday and landed in Alabama to do some Bass fishing for Dougs birthday .Then December 1 we will head back to the Keys.Its still too hot in the Keys,but I am glad the temps are coming down.My shake is really easy.Enreino turned me onto Hemp powder and I love it!Just chunk it all in a blender.
2 Tablespoons Hemp Powder
8 ounces unsweetened almond/coconut milk
6 drops Zero
4 strawberries
6 large ice cubes
1 tablespoons chia seeds
This is wicked filling! I also use soy protein powder,but I like the hemp better :)

I've been reading ... The Great Cholesterol Myth by Dr. Jonny Bowden and Dr. Sinatra and they touch on chia seeds as they are high in Omega-3's.  As we produce 2 other omega-3's in our body,  they need the other essential omega-3 in order to work properly which you can find in chia or flax seed.   Amazing that this little tiny seed can be so powerful.   Wonderful stuff.
