Quick Breakfast or Snack: Yogurt Parfait

I've recently been reading about Chia seeds and how good they are for your health. So I went to Trader Joe's to pick up a pack and give it a try. Chia seeds are packed with nutrients and can assist in weight loss, so heck ya!

This is a great breakfast or snack idea. I used 0% plain Greek yogurt, added blueberries, about 1/2 tsp. of chia seeds, and sliced raw almonds. I didn't add any sweetener since I want to avoid added sugars, and the blueberries have a touch of sweetness so there ya go!

Veggie Garden on the Move!

I'm so happy that Spring is in full effect because it has definitely been good to my garden! I had planted a variety of veggies back in early March and I transplanted the green beans, radishes, peppers (future blog post) and lettuce to an open area in my garden.

I was so excited to notice that the green beans sprouted so quickly. First I noticed small flowers, which grew into green beans. It's fun to go out and check on the veggies and see what has sprouted. I was able to pick at least a dozen of green beans in a week and a half. So cute!
