Yesterday I was working at home, so I had the forethought to whip up a little chia bowl for today’s lunches. I stirred four tablespoons of chia seeds into about a cup of vanilla soy milk, but any milk would work. Then I added some chopped strawberries, pomegranate seeds and a couple of tablespoons of rolled oats. The pomegranate seeds I painstakingly removed from a nice big fruit I got at the farmers market. If any one knows of some secret method to remove pomegranate seeds, please let me know, because I always manage to squirt pomegranate juice all over the kitchen while I’m digging out those stubborn little seeds. And, because it’s Halloween week, I went crazy indulgent and made a trail mix with cereal, mixed nuts, and crack cocaine, um, I mean Reese’s pieces.
