This week I had the pleasure of spending time in the kitchen with my friend, Sarah. We had settled on whipping up some Indian fare for her family so I made my way over to her home. Along the way I had to switch gears in terms of the recipe I had had in mind. It turns out okra isn’t exactly available in Colorado in March. The more you know…Thankfully I used my smart phone and a generous selection of produce at the local Whole Foods to come up with the refined Indian Stuffed Eggplant recipe–a rendition of AllRecipe’s version.

Saying that they taste delicious in what is described as an all natural energy drink made by tribes indigenous to the southwest and Mexico.

1. Pour 1 Tbsp of Chia seeds into a glass or bottle (I use an old kombucha bottle so I can take it on the go and drink it throughout the day) add 10 ounces of water. Shake or stir periodically for 10 minutes to make sure the seeds do not clump.
