I hate to admit it, but I think I am addicted to Chia, I love it! Big Train Spiced chai. I love the smell, I love the taste. I enjoy it hot, even now in the dog days of summer. It seems so exotic, so decadent, like a grown up version of hot chocolate. Seems like a wonderful break in the middle of the day to just relax for a moment with a warm comforting cup of chai! An afternoon delight! I am really trying to cut back on my sugar intake, so I am convinced I should cut it out of my diet. I know it is not healthy, I know it’s loaded with sugar, I know it has caffeine. Always on a diet, always doing without, I feel like a naughty, rebellious kid when I sit down with my vice, my cup of chai!
I justify it by feeling that it curbs my appetite and gives me some much needed energy at 2:30pm. So maybe, just maybe I can work off the 170 calories! Is this ok? Am I just kidding myself? I think I would be willing to give up a meal just to have it! Ok this is starting to sound like an addiction! I suppose it could be worse…I only drink one small cup a day. I don’t drink coffee. I don’t drink Starbucks. I drink only water the rest of the day. This sounds desperate! So silly! I think I need a cup of chai!!!! Ahh
