Always looking for sponsors

to donate $ or gifts

Please help us contact businesses to donate $100 for a shirt sponsorship or to donate their services/products.  $100 shirt sponsorship provides a logo on the Boot Cancer shirts, full access to the competitors and spectators and promotion through social networking.  Checks for the $100 shirt sponsor are to be made out to Boot Cancer.

Yes, we will be laboring on Labor Day

If it’s not raining, we’ll meet at the Gazebo next to the playground.  We may need to run across the street for our workout if they’re fertilizing the fields at the school.  See you tomorrow.

Chia Seeds  . . . I take 3 tbsp. a day . . .

Chia seed was once valued so much that it was used as currency by the Native Americans of the Southwest and Mexico. It was considered a high energy endurance food and was used as far back as the Aztec warriors during their conquests.

Chia seed is highly mucilaginous and has been used by diabetics to slow the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. It also regulates moisture distribution to the cells of the body more efficiently. Chia seeds are are an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber and Omega 3 fatty acid and contain no gluten.

Chia seeds can be eaten raw or sprouted. Chia sprouts are a delicious addition to salads and sandwiches. Chia seeds can be ground into a meal to make porridge or cakes, or as an addition to breads, cakes and biscuits.


Coming next week . . . a T-Shirt contest and taking a poll for a guest speaker.
