Hi. My name is Lindsay and I am a worrywart. I get this from my mother (thanks mom! I still love you though!). Whats funny is that I never worry about the big things, just the small petty things. Like when the hubs is off racing for the weekend, I worry if he’s getting enough rest and enough food, if he remembered everything, and what will I do if the stupid smoke alarm keep going off and i can’t fix it?!?! That always seems to happen when he leaves, I think its rigged. Anyway, what do I do channel out this annoying habit? I bake, work on house projects, get caught up on work, venture out to new bakeries/cafes, brew another batch of kombucha, and catch up with long distance friends! Basically anything to take my mind off those small worrywarts.
Breaking out the dehydrator…..why?……cause I have time!!
PB and Banana Chia Chips
(adapted from this recipe)
4 tablespoons chia seeds
1 cup water 1 bananas, very ripe
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tbsp PB flour or PB2 flour
1 tsp vanilla extract(optional)
Combine ingredients in blender and process until smooth.
Allow to sit for about 20 minutes until mixture begins to gel.
Spread mixture about 1/8 in thick on parchment paper.
Dehydrate at 145F for about 6 hours, or until fruit-leather-like consistency is achieved.
Carefully peel from parchment and slice into cracker-sized pieces.
Return to dehydrator for an additional 6 hours, or until crispy.
Place in a Ziploc with some extra cinnamon and stevia. Shake it up to coat the chips again. Enjoy!
**NOTE: You can also use the oven (instead o a dehydrator). Set the oven door slightly open and place on lowest temperature (160-170F) for 8-10 hours.
These were tasty little snack. Great for dipping in Greek yogurt or cottage cheese!
Meeting up with old friends! My good friend Kristen moved to LA LA land with her hubs 2 years ago and just had her first baby. Today I got to see her in Austin with her sweet baby boy.
A good catch up it was! Care-free and full of laughter, just like old times! Just wish she would move back to Austin, boo.
I finally got a chance to try out another one of Austin’s raw cafes. Picked up a little “raw” snack when I was downtown. Anyone wanna guess what this dish is?

All I know is that it made my tummy very happy! I must try to re-create this.
Well, I should be doing laundry now but for some reason I’m sucked into Desperate Housewives. Bye Bye Sunday night!
Are you a worrywart? What do you do to take your mind off things? (mom, you can’t answer! haha!)
This is till my favorite raw bar/juice bar thus far in Austin. They seriously are the best!
