Health Explosion!

I started with making different green juices yesterday, which lead to adding fresh thai coconut juice to one batch, then to blueberry coconut chia pudding, to kale/sweet potato/quinoa casserole, to grilled salmon over mashed coconut sweet potatoes for lunch, to lastly sweet potato quinoa “muffins!!” Sometimes my imagination runs wild and I just go! I hate wasting any food, so I used all my scraps to come up with different recipes. Let’s start out with where it all began: Thai Coco Green Juice!

    I have to try me some chia pudding! I have chia seeds, just never really used them! Do you soak yours first? I heard this is a good way to go about preparing them.

    Thanks for the delicious-looking recipes!!

      They will be soaking in the pudding, so no need to do it twice!! They are amazing and incredibly high in fiber!
