I know I have been MIA for a few weeks, I caught the flu and could barely get out of bed the first few days.  It’s been about three years since I have had the flu; I didn’t even know what was going on with my body. I thought maybe I had an allergic reaction to something, and then I thought it could be from some form of dairy I probably ate. I had not had any dairy in a while so I knew that was out.  About the second day in I finally realized I had the flu, when I broke out in a cold sweat and my body temperature sky rocketed.  Creamy Chia Popsicles

I was definitely in denial about the situation because I work around kids (they are always sick), coworkers that get sick (some spread there germs all over) and not one has ever gotten me sick. I just could not believe I caught the flu from Josh.  I guess there is the first time for everything! I told him next time he gets sick I am putting him in quarantine with mega doses of vitamin c. The only good thing about being sick is you lose weight and I didn’t lose one pound!  Creamy Chia Popsicles

I am finally feeling much better and while my appetite never left, I am happy I can eat sweet things again. I have been craving popsicles especially with the intense temperatures. Creamy chia popsicles are high in fiber and dairy free. You only need a few ingredients to make this easy cold treat.
