marlajune's Journal, 02 April 2013

Well it's official, I don't like Chia seeds in my smoothie! Blech! It adds this weird taste to it I really don't like. I wonder if anyone else wants these dumb things? I only have a 1/2 cup or so. Wonder if they'd grow if I plant them? I sure am NOT going to eat anymore! Ugh!

Today I'm trying the famous Quinoa, let's see if that is a thumbs up or thumbs down. My daughter has been trying to get me to try it for a while. Here goes nothing! I'll let you know how it goes. I think it's like rice-you can either make it sweet or salty or however you want it to taste. And it can be hot or cold too. I'm going to eat it similar to oatmeal, with a sweetener and maybe some almond milk.

Wish me luck! ;)

I love the chia seeds. I do not notice a taste at all. But the sure help me stay regular. you can spread them on pottery and they grow remember the chia pets! Think of Quinoa as a pasta or grain replacement. I have used it in cold salads like a pasta salad with vegetables but no mayo. a sweet vinegar or balsamic dressing. For breakfast I sometimes put crasins or raisins and Brown sugar in it.

The quinoa was different, more for salty than sweet in my taste buds, it has a smoky taste that's very different. Back to cream of Rice for me, :)
