Garden Update

These are two tiny sweet pinapple that my mom grew. They are about the size of softballs. How cute huh? I also bought some cat grass and mint. I needed mint for some juicing so I bought a mint plant instead of the picked mint in the store. I normally grow cat grass, but I was in the garden section, so I just picked some up.

This is my new baby at work "Tasi", meaning "Ocean".

Coconut & Melon breakfast
1/2 honeydew (chopped)
1/2 cantalope (chopped)
1/8- 1/4 cup chia seeds
coconut water
coconut kefir

Soak the chia seeds in the coconut water until they absorb the coconut water. Mix in the fruit and kefir. Eat!
Another good combo is what my husband likes to call:

Mango Mush
1 small pineapple
3-4 mangoes
5 Tbsp chia seeds
So Delicious Coconut Milk

Soak the chia seeds in some coconut milk. Blend the pineapple, mango, and some coconut until smooth. Once chia absorbs some of the liquid, pour half into the blender. Blend. Pour the blended mixture into the rest of your chia seed mixture. Stir. It is sooooo tasty!


  1. Cloth pads and cloth toilet paper? That's more than just a little extreme! Haha. Kudos to you, though! I'm afraid I'm going to stick to my toilet PAPER while I can. :)

    I am SO jealous of your beautiful garden! I reeeeeealy want a garden of my own. Perhaps next month we'll have the funds to buy the wood for the planters. Fingers crossed!

    yay sissy!!!

  3. Thanks Carissa! Love your blog too.
    Really nice garden! I am a plant lover myself so I appreciate your plants!

    P.S. I was wondering how much does chia cost? Could you help me with that please? Here in Romania I haven't found chia seeds and I thought maybe they are too expensive to import...


  4. Miriam, yes I freak people out sometimes with my "extreme" hippiness. I swear I get called "weird" on a daily basis ;) I hope you can start a garden. It is so much fun and so rewarding when you can say, I grew this!

    Angiconst, is it Angi for short? Thanks for following! A great place to buy chia from is from Amazon. I believe this is the link:

    It is $14.95 I think for 2 lb. Not bad huh? I love chia!

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You fruit salad looks so good! Following you also. :)

  6. Hey Morgan, thanks for following! It was such a yummy breakfast :D

  7. I adore your jar fish tank.

    The pineapples are just so sweet. Love them and wish I was eating one right now.

    Nice to check on your garden progress too.

  8. Aren't the small pineapples the sweetest? I love um. I like my fishie too!

  9. I wish I had the tropical temperature to grow my own pineapples! My Alpine strawberries seem boring now.

    Thanks for following me.

  10. No, I'm jealous of your strawberries! Pineapples are good, but take up a lot of room.
