Now, if anyone is going to love this post, it's my dad. He's kind of like an honorary unpaid supporter of the Chia Seed. Whenever I'm creating recipes with my mom and we're a little stumped on how to make the recipe better he's always in the background saying, "Throw some Chia Seeds in it!" (As if Chia has some magical power to solve any gluten free baking problem... ha ha.) While they are pretty magical dad, I don't know if they can solve everything... ;) Sigh, but wouldn't it be nice if they could...?
K, enough chit chat, it's time to get down to the nitty gritty. Chia Seeds are healthy. REAL healthy. And it's time that you start eating them if you're not already. Let me break it down. Here's just some of the nutrients they supply so you can wrap your mind around their awesomeness.
In just 1 Tbsp, Chia Seeds provide:

Man, Pork Chops have got to be the most temperamental meat I've worked with! This next recipe has literally been years in the making. Let me explain. When I was younger I wanted to love Pork Chops. I really did. But every time I tried them, they're were a bit too tough for me. And if I have to fight to eat my meat, it starts to mentally freak me out. Call me crazy but I'm a tender-and-juicy-meat-kind-of-girl.
So, then I tried buying the skinnier cuts of pork chops thinking that that would be the solution. I tried frying them, baking them and now- one of my favorite new recipes! And yes, the slow cooker has once again saved the day!
This recipe is based on some amazing pork chops a friend baked for me once. And though I don't have that recipe, this one incorporates the same tenderness & taste. You're going to love it. My absolute favorite part is the gravy! I'm pretty proud of it. I invented it from scratch. Seriously my husband is usually the go-to sauce man. He can make gravy to cry over. My gravy usually makes people cry but for a different reason. ;) I'm just teasing. But I am getting better for sure. But this gravy- it got me the "restaurant worthy" approval from my husband. I'm so proud. :)
Enjoy and be sure to let me know what you think!

(Gluten Free, Dairy Free)
Created by jalene
Makes 2-3 servings
This dish goes great served over rice or with mashed potatoes. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
*Note: Just a heads up- the gravy will be pretty white in color when you first combine it but it will brown slightly as it simmers in the crockpot.

This next recipe is got to be the most delicious way to eat your oatmeal.
I have a hard time eating just Oatmeal in the morning. I know it's nutritious and I usually do turn to it if I need something quick and easy to prepare. But what if I told you you could have the wonderful ingredients of oatmeal plus more nutrients in a waffle form? It's true. Introducing Oat Flour Waffles. They're delicious and easy. I simply throw all of the ingredients in my blender and then cook them up! They have a light flavor and a bendable quality so they work great as a sandwich bread as well.
Do oats burn through you quickly? Don't worry. These Oat Waffles pack extra protein with the eggs and extra fiber with the coconut flour. Actually...did you know that coconut flour is actually low in digestible carbohydrates? That means that it will burn slowly in your body giving you a longer lasting breakfast.
I think you're going to love them! We sure do. ;)
