Sunday Morning :.
"Sunday Morning rain is falling".... hmmm except for not really. Because I live in L.A. Haha. I do love the song by Maroon 5 "Sunday Morning". Feel good song, if your looking for some tunes to boost your mood :) Although, not a huge fan of that particular lead singer. I am quite excited to see the new movie he is coming out in! It's called Begin Again. Looks really good! I love movies that are about music :) I still haven't seen Jersey Boys, but I plan to in the next week! Best believe! However, I did see an amazing documentary, called "20 Feet From Stardom". Wow. So inspiring. As some of you may know I am in the entertainment industry. An actress, singer & sometimes model, I'll have you know :) You can check out my youtube and other things on my website if you'd like KrystenJorgensen.Com. a n y w h o ! Back to what this post is really about. My breakfast.
So yesterday I let you all know I was starting a cleanse. Not too crazy or anything. Just need to re route. A refresher, etc. You get it. So this is the route that I feel good about going on, and I know it will make me feel mucho better. I already do! Maybe because of this awesome recipe I made. Seriously. I don't like tooting my horn too loudly :/ But I am surprised at how good this is. I've created a chia pudding before, and was sort of a fan of it. But not like this! This is actually yummmm. I hope you'll try it! And if you do, please post a pic, and #thedailykale for me:) I wanna see! If your on instagram, I just created a new instagram account for @The Daily Kale and would love if you would follow me!
Alright ya'll so here it is. Happy Sunday!
*So make sure to do this at night, so you can enjoy in the morning! :) Or at least an hour before eating it. It doesn't become 'pudding' consistency unless you let it sit in fridge for at least an hour.
3 tbsp chia seeds (white or black)
1/2 cup almond milk (or any non dairy milk of choice)
Stir together and let sit in fridge either over night or 1 hour.
After your pudding is pudddding :) In a blender place :
1/2 frozen or raw banana (if using raw, put a little ice)
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
and Bllleeeeennddddd. Now pour this over your chia pudding and stir
it all together. Top it with whatever you like! I topped mine with walnuts. So filling from all the fiber from the chia seeds! Enjoy :)
Hello EVERYONE who is reading this.
I've decided that "The Daily Kale" is getting a make over. I thought it through and through. I've been really irritated lately, and why should I keep that from you? I've decided I'd like to share whats been going on with me. Well nothing that big. Just goes to show you. I am a true conservative southern person. The way I was raised is quite different from other loud, no filtered people. And I'm fine with that! I don't mind being the nice person. In no way am I naive or a pushover (well, not anymore, that is) Regardless. The POINT I am trying to get to is that I recently for whatever reason, was googling 'The Daily Kale' to try to get to my website I think, instead of typing into the url. and I came across another person who has decided to name their website The Daily Kale about 4 months ago. Now what in the hell. I've had this website since 2011. I looked around the internet, when deciding my name. To make sure no one else had it. Now why would anyone, copy me? It's just plain rude and disrespectful.
I know I may sound winey or silly for letting this get to me, since I do have a rather large following. But it's the principal. Ya know? Yeesh. People. Really can get under my skin. But hey, it's all about letting it go. I'm still gonna keep doing me. And everyone else can keep doing them- even if it's not authentic. OH WELL. So now that I got that out of the way. I'd like to share with you what my website has been about and what it's going to be about more in the future. After lots of thought last week, I was really considering changing my name. Grrr. But NO man. This website, the one I created with the authentic name I chose. Was for a reason. Sure my thoughts and lifestyle have changed since then. But so what. Because of those changes, because of this website, etc. Everything- I am where I am today. And yes I pretty much do have kale everyday. SO THERE. ;)
But no. I'm not vegan and no I'm not vegetarian. I don't mean to disappoint my large following of herbivores. It's hard for me to admit that to everyone, or share photos of food that isn't vegan/veg. because I don't know how well that'd go over. But thats not being true to who I am and what I believe for myself. Just because it's the way I live, does not mean thats the way you have to! You do whats best for you! I've evolved so much in the past few years with 'healthy food' and to me, it doesn't always have to be vegan anymore. I do watch everything though. I don't eat cheese at every meal, etc. But my life is my life. I chose to share my recipes & thoughts on here. And if you like to read, then so be it :) If not, thats okay too.
But I am excited for new things! I hope you are too :)
