chia jam," which are basically fruit and chia seeds all smashed together and then allowed to sit and "gel." I really want to try this, but haven't yet. The one seed that I haven't tried is hemp. My trainer recommends it, but I have a glitch. As part of my health agreement, I submit myself for regular drug-testing. My doc recommended that I NOT consume hemp seeds during this time, as it may produce a false positive. Interesting, huh? Oh, well... lots of other seeds to enjoy!
Newman's Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing. I take 2 tbls of each and put them in the salad container. I put on the lid and SHAKE IT until it's all mixed up and a little bit wilted.
Here's what I like (I cut all my ingredients into small pieces):
- Romaine lettuce
- Cucumbers (I especially like the English long seedless)
- Beans (whatever can is open: garbanzo, black, white, kidney)
- Hard-boiled egg
- Sunflower seeds
- Bean sprouts (these don't last long in the fridge, so they're a treat)
- Avocado (1/2)
- Meat (grilled or rotisserie chicken, salmon, pork, beef, whatever's leftover in the fridge)
