The chia seeds and chia fiber have helped so much. I love the whole chia seeds, I have made the chia seed pudding by mixing 1/4c chia seeds, 1c almond milk and a packet of truvia. I prefer to let it sit until it thickens instead of letting it sit in the fridge all night as some recipes suggested. It has a strange texture but I like it and it is a nice change of pace. (and it helps get rid of false belly fat) I have also started adding the seeds to one of my favorite afternoon snacks, 1/2c Greek yogurt, chopped celery, cucumber, tomato, and a dash of garlic salt. It is a refreshing filling afternoon snack that I often have around 3 at work.
Hubby and I love clemmy's snack size ice cream-os I found on sale at Huckleberry's one of our local health food stores. I am so happy that they started carrying clemmys, when I first started the bfc the only place that carried clemmy's was Whole Foods and there are no Whole Foods in my neck of the woods. One ice cream-o contains O sugar and 12g carb and the box contains 12.
I have been thinking about what Dawn said in her Thursday post titled "the bad d word". I do not think of the bfc as a diet I think of it as a lifestyle. I tell people I am doing a low sugar/better carb thing, I have a hard time truly explaining the bfc to others. While camping I started writing down how I would explain the bfc when I finish it I will share it. I want to be able to share the bfc in a way that is not preachy. I am very sensitive to a preachy condescending tone and I think that is accomplishes nothing.
Well, I guess that's all for now. You guys are awesome and I truly value and appreciate all of you. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday :)
