First of all, I have to say DANG! Thank you for such awesome words of encouragement from my last post! I honestly wrote that post because it was on my heart and I needed to express that some how. It’s such a good feeling knowing that so many others feel the same way. Can I get an AMEN?! haha.
Moving on now here. Let’s talk tummies. Or the non cutesy term…. ..stomach issues. You all know I’ve had my fair share. You can read about it here. And I know many others have had the same. Whether it be from food allergies, stress, sports induced, etc. It ain’t pretty.
Now since I usually teach/train/run in the morning, I’ve learned a “routine” that works for me. Get up early, coffee, light breakfast, go! You get my point here. But the past couple weeks, my schedule has had to change. I’ve had to meet client to run in the afternoon or even delay my personal training till late afternoon. While many people find this easy, its not so much for me. My stomach is not too fond of it. Which leads to side cramps and acid indigestion mid run. UGH!!
A few weeks ago, the kind people at ReNew Life sent me a sample of their Ultimate Chia Life. Of course its just full of good stuff!
Organically Grown, 100% Natural Chia Seeds
- 5 grams of dietary fiber per serving
- Organically grown, BeneXia brand
- Excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids
- Higher protein quality than soy
- 6 concentrated antioxidants
- Gluten-free, no preservatives
I just love this company. Brenda Watson actually established ReNew Life through her own journey to overcome health problems. And yes, she did so with NATURAL PRODUCTS! You can check her out on her PBS Special The Road to Perfect Health – Balance Your Gut, Heal Your Body, an in-depth look at how chronic diseases start with an unhealthy digestive system.
Chia Fresca anyone?
- about 10 oz of water
- 1 tablespoon dry chia seeds
- a few teaspoons lemon or lime juice
- honey or agave nectar, to taste (optional)
Stir the chia seeds into the water; let them sit for about five minutes. Stir again, and let sit for as long as you like. The more it sits, the more gel-like the seeds and water become. Add citrus juice and sweetener to taste.
NoMeat Athlete swears buy it! Just see here for his review. And I have to admit, it was very refreshing. Definitely a drink that will help me get through my afternoon workouts/runs!
Well, that’s it for my Tummy Talk Tuesday. But before we go, please tell me, do you have a natural remedies you swear by? I need more in my life! haha.
