Remember how Lulu started school last week? And how her first day was a flying success? Well, Monday morning brought several inches of snow, and Lulu had her first snow day. I’ll admit that when I woke up and saw the rather impressive dusting, I felt mildly disappointed. I had so much to do, and now my four hours of quiet were no more. My morning changed from productive….to playful (but you know what…that change was more than okay). I’m realizing that my little girl is growing up fast, and although I cherish the few hours I get with just a cup of tea and my laptop, I treasure the moments I get to spend with her even more.
I love making this gluten-free chia soda bread because it is simple to prepare, healthy, dairy-free and there is no yeast or kneading. I have added chia seeds because they are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, iron, and calcium, and 1-ounce, serving of chia seeds also contains 5.6 grams of protein. Soda bread is best when eaten fresh, but toasting a slice or making garlic bread the next day makes this bread a winner!
