Satisfying Little Snack

I love chips!! There, I said it. My name is Trisha, I live in Los Angeles and I eat carbs. Lol.

Many of my friends here in LA eat clean and I love them for it and sometimes wish I could be more like them. I on the other hand, eat plenty of things that usually garner a bit of teasing when I eat them. One example is sometimes I eat ice cream for dinner or I run to the store and get a small bag of Doritos as a snack. Well, I am always on the hunt for better options of the foods I love and I have found it in Late July Nacho Chipotle chips.

The flavor is all natural and the chips are gluten and GMO free. They are also lacto vegetarian and Kosher. I am always skeptical to try these alternate versions of my guilty pleasure, go-to favorites, but in this case, I was pleasantly surprised. The Nacho Chipotle flavor is super good and just a touch spicy. I am not one for spicy foods, so I am telling you, it is just the slightest spicy kick at the end of each bite that keeps this chip interesting. The flavor combo will definitely snap you out of your boring work day and put a little pep in your step.

The Late July brand is so great that they donate 10% of their profits to causes that benefit children and the planet. So take that all you LA carb haters! I am actually doing good for humanity while snacking on my chips.

I purchased mine at Pavillions for $3.79.

Cha Cha Cha Chia….Pudding

I am always on the hunt for healthy, easy, delicious breakfast options and recently have been obsessed with Chia Pudding. It is super easy to make and has a tapioca-like texture with a slight crunch and is packed with anti-inflammatory omega-3’s.

You will need chia seeds, I buy mine from Trader Joe’s, vanilla, light coconut milk (the kind in a can), and honey or agave if you prefer. In a small bowl, you will mix 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1 cup light coconut milk, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp honey. Simply stir until combined and pour into a mason jar or other air tight container and chill in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, you will wake up to thick, creamy chia pudding that can be topped with fresh fruit or eaten plain. This fiber rich treat can be eaten for breakfast or a snack and will help you debloat. I love how fool proof this is to make and that it is perfect for people that need something ready to grab and go.
