Oh boy oh boy. I sure hope you stayed away from Technology this weekend and just vegged. Trust me, it’s worth it and our minds need it more than anything. Yes, we can be social outside of social media. Life out there DOES EXIST! haha.
Anyway, we had a big training weekend. When I say “we,” you know I really mean the hubs, right? I mean, I walked and lifted weights, but that took me a whole 30-45 minutes. Not complaining one bit though. Means more play time for me in the kitchen, and I like being there these days.
So here I am come Monday and I’ve got a few recipes up my sleeve. Okay, they really aren’t recipes, more like concoctions, but you get my drift.
This recipe was inspired by this little CHIA CRAZE that’s been going on. You see, THIS GIRL and THAT MAMA have been hitting up Chia recipes like there is no tomorrow. And to be quite honest, I was jealous. Dang I forgot all my bags of Chia back in Austin and unfortunately there aren’t any GNC’s here in New Zealand that sell these suckers. So what’s a girl to do but settle for the next best thing. Yes, I found it. WHITE CHIA and it’s from Australia.
Well that’s cool. The white chia makes it easier to hide between your teeth, right? More reason to eat by the spoonful and not floss after, jk.
No but seriously, it’s good stuff.
I was anxious to initiate myself into this CHIA CRAZE club, so I put on my thinking cap. It wasn’t too too long later that my brain churned out some ideas.
Long hours of training for the hubs = an appetite craving good recovery snacks, right?
Hence the cake…. Cotter Chia Recovery Cakes to be exact.
- •30 grams recovery protein/drink powder- We use BASE AMINO Recovery with Pineapple Whey Protein Powder
- •2 tbsp chia seed
- •1 egg
- •1 tsp baking powder
- •1/2 tbsp coconut butter
- •1/4 tsp vanilla
- ◦Greek yogurt mixed with honey rice pudding for topping
- mix everything in a large soup mug. Microwave for 30 seconds. Let it stand for a few seconds, then microwave again for 15 seconds, let it stand, then microwave one more time for 10 seconds. Flip it over on a plate and add topping. I used Greek yogurt, Rice pudding, and raisins. Melts in your mouth.
Not too shabby for someone who just joined the Chia Craze, eh?
Okay it’s not a rocket science recipe but it does make eating Cake on WELL WORTH it on a Monday.
So go ahead… have your cake today!
Please tell me you made your Monday sweet! It follows well after a weekend of disconnect.
