so, i broke the lens of my dslr camera… just dropped it, accidentally. oh, i wept like a baby, instantly, and for an inappropriate amount of time. no countenance at all… (yes, that’s me). and as much as i tell myself that it’s only a material damage, if i’m completely honest it just broke my heart and with it my hope. i do sound melodramatic, i’m aware. but it feels like such a loss! i need my camera! i’m attached to it at the hip (almost). ugh, the cruelty!
anyway, who needs this special new handbag that you’ve been lusting after for two years if you can buy a new lens, that you already have, but accidentally broke, right? i hope you’ll still get to see pictures in the meantime. i guess it’s back to photography stone age then (might as well make a black box with a hole in it… tssk).
now chia seeds: chia seeds are very healthy and good for you. they’ve got lots of omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, vitamins and antioxidants… you name it – chia seed has got it. which makes my day… so much better. yeah. can you see me smiling, chia seed pudding? that was a smile!
chia seed pudding
serves 1 (for obvious reasons)
1/3 cup chia seeds (i used the white ones, but the dark ones work just as well)
3/4 cup warm water
1 tbsp. maple syrup
1 vanilla bean, extract
berries for garnish
put the chia seeds in a glass (one that you will want to use directly after to serve the pudding), and add the water, vanilla extract and maple syrup. stir to combine. put in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight. garnish with whatever your heart feels like: berries, coconut flakes, almond butter, honey, nuts…
