Jon the Freshman


    Just for the record 'the freshman' comes from high school. unfortunately I'm now a freshman in college so the name has made a triumphant return.

      On the other and, my nose and ear hair is growing profusely. Not helping things.

       

      Yeah, that must be a side effect of too many chia seeds.   I'm thinking I might be over doing it a bit myself:

        So in addition to curing what that ails you, chia seeds will grow hair on a billiard ball? Smile

           

          why?

           

          To make them more appealing when they look like a bunch of frog eggs XD. Dunno, maybe in Mexico they consider this to look delicious. It wouldn't be the worst thing they eat over there:

          Fried Chapulin.


          Yeah, it's exactly what it seems to be.

            I don't care to work that hard to eat something that tastes like crap in order to "do good things" for my body.  I've tried them several different ways, every friend saying they know the best way to "prepare" them and how to eat them and how I'm going to love it this way!!!  I've tried the chia "bars" at expos.  they suck too.  so now I give up.  I've not experienced excessive hair growth, but they do make my stomach feel "fuzzy"......

              i put a tablespoon of them on my cereal each morning.  without the milk, they'd quickly attain sand in the foreskin status on the Universal scale of annoyance.

              My wife says i have a short attention spanners are great, aren't they?

                not a fan here either, I have tried the whole blending them in a smoothie thing but it ends up turning the smoothie into glue if you don't drink the whole thing within five minutes. My three girls are all gluten and dairy free though, so in an effort to make something fun for them I do make chia pudding on occassion. lots of recipes online if you google it. our favorite is to blend coconut milk with fresh strawberries and add a squeeze of lime juice, sweeten with agave or honey or just plain sugar and add chia seeds, let them soak for a couple hours or a however long....they adsorb the liquid and turn into a gummy type of pudding, kind of like tapioca but not quite. the girls like it, i don't care for it....

                        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                          I would totally try them if they weren't so damned expensive.  I'll stick to my flaxseed.

                          I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.  

                           

                          "Mental toughness is built by doing something that is hard over and over again, especially when you don't feel like doing it. Our society has conditioned us to believe that there should be no discomfort, to stop when we are uncomfortable. But the discomfort we feel when we're doing a challenging workout is an important part of the strengthening process." -Jim Afremow, The Champion's Mind: How Great Athletes Think, Train, and Thrive

                            I got a giant bag of them at Costco for like 9 bucks. I've been throwing a couple of teaspoons in my breakfast oatmeal or cereal or smoothie for several months now and barely made a dent in the bag.  Check there.

                              Try Chia Fresca.  I like mine with lime juice.
