Coconut oil and chia seeds are probably one of the few health trends I have tried that have not back fired on me some how. It is all fine and dandy to read about some supposedly awesome (possibly new to you) item on some one’s blog or in a magazine or whatever it is and a completely different thing entirely to actually try it. Every once and while I actually try out the silly (and possibly overly hyped up) things I read about and it can be disappointing. I mentioned that most of my cooking with whey attempts end up pretty disastrously. Nutritional yeast was not particularly exciting. But what can one expect from something that looks like midly radioactive fish food. Although, to be fair it was tasty mixed into mashed sweet potato. Flax seed, that thing that was suppose to fix all fiber related problems (???) did not agree with my stomach at all. Two things that I have found both yummy and convenient to add to my food/cooking sometimes are chia seeds and coconut oil. If you have not had coconut oil in oatmeal I recommend trying it. It is even yummier if you put some coconut oil, shredded coconut, and cinnamon together in oatmeal. And coconut oil is another alternative for cooking in the place of butter and other oils. Chia seeds are yummy in yogurt. The chia seeds are neutral in terms of flavour but they thicken the yogurt and add texture.
. . . not much point to this post other than to say coconut oil and chia seeds are yummy. . . . also I am bored.
