Watermelon Chia Fresca

It’s not nearly summer (hell, it’s less than 48 hours into spring), but spending the last week in North Carolina for Rachel’s wedding made us ready mid-July.

Chia Frescas are like bubble tea, but better. Instead of filling you up with fistfulls of tapioca, like our favorite Strawberry-Lychee milkshakes, Chia Frescas are light and refreshing enough to drink with dinner. They don’t have the same sugar-sweetness, and that means you can drink more without sacrificing precious stomach real estate destined for churros, pulled pork sandwiches, or asparagus covered in egg yolks and cheese.

You can certainly make this glass of summer in your juicer and skip straining, but we found our blender gave us a way better yield. Like, as in, two times the juice! So you do you to the fullest, but prepare to adjust the amount of lime if you go your own way.

Watermelon Chia Fresca

  • 1 medium Watermelon
  • 2 Limes, juiced
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2-3 cups Water
  • 4 tbsp Chia Seeds

Scoop the pink flesh out of the Watermelon and drop it in your blender. Whir it together with the Lime, Honey, and Salt until all that’s left is a pulpy liquid, with no chunks (about 45 seconds). Strain this mixture through a fine mesh strainer, coffee filter, cheese cloth, or anything else that’s on hand and will get the job done.

Place the Chia seeds in a glass or jar, and cover with 2-3 inches of the strained Watermelon juice. Let this sit on the counter for an hour (or in the fridge overnight) stirring occasionally, until the weirdly delicious gel forms on the outside of the seeds. You could do this ahead of time in plain water, too, but why miss an opportunity to add extra flavor?

In a large pitcher, mason jar, or whatever, mix together the rest of your ingredients, tasting as you add the water (some melons are waterier than others). Serve over ice, or just in frosty glasses, and day dream of kiddie pools, grilled meats, and suntans.

Sounds delicious! Going to have to try this when watermelon is in season

GUYS YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW WONDERFUL THIS IS 
Parkinson’s is a degenerative disease and while it’s progress can be slowed down, it currently doesn’t have a cure. People suffering from Parkinson’s will experience a gradual loss of coordination and ability to perform even the most basic of every day tasks, including feeding themselves. 
This fucking spoon is HUGEfor them. Look at that gif of the man just trying to eat with the regular spoon and compare it to the liftware device. It’s NOT just a spoon, by the way, it comes with a fork as well, for example. 
I found the website for the project where you can purchase a spoon for someone you know/love and even possibly donate money to help someone out who can’t afford it themselves right: HERE.
At the very least, please spread this for all the people who have Parkinson’s or loved ones with Parkinson’s. 
You’ll help them take part of their life back. 

that’s cool

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TAKING OUT THE ABOVE INFORMATION AND JUST REBLOGGING THE PICTURE.  IF YOU CAN REBLOG THE PICTURE, YOU CAN REBLOG THE LINK TO ACTUALLY HELP PEOPLE.  THANKS.

Spread this.

Heeyyy, this has gone around a time or two before but let’s get it going again. They’re doing “March Match,” so if you’ve got a few bucks around donate. This is the coolest damned thing.

One of the awesome things about this is you can see with the stabilized spoon part of the gif that he is already chewing on food so it’s not his first mouthful and it doesn’t take 50 million tries to get the food from plate to mouth and that’s just awesome


Amazing!

I wanted to do a proper review of my 3-day juice cleanse. 

First thing, the juices all tasted better than they look! The “all greens” was very cucumbery and the “royal flush” was delicious! The “beets me” had a little too much ginger for my taste though. 

Day 1 was hard, I felt myself craving every fattening food I could think of (pizza especially). Day 2 got a little easier. I supplemented with almonds, which worked pretty well. By day 3 though I stopped feeling so hungry, which made me worry that my metabolism had slowed down. There was a pizza lunch at work, so I cheated (so much fattening food at my office!!). 

I did light workouts on days 1 and 3 and drank a ton of herbal tea. My office is very cold and so with the cold juice I was completely freezing most of the time. I didn’t really get headaches or grouchy on this thankfully. I did find a bit of a 3pm crash though and had trouble falling asleep. 

I definitely lost weight which was great! I think I would try this again but in summer and for 2 days rather than 3. Thank you Liquiteria!

Starting my 3-day juice cleanse today! This is my breakfast. It’s actually better than I was expecting. Very cucumbery. We’ll see how long before the carb-craving monster gets angry…

Friday night dinner for two!

Friday night dinner for two!

Huge portions drive me crazy! My boyfriend wonders why I always take half my food home, but I don’t want to stuff myself with two meals’ worth of pasta.

My second attempt at a green smoothie. Kale, spinach, flax seed powder, and a Granny Smith apple. Not bad. Could probably use a little more apple.
