I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food - www.mysanfranciscokitchen.com

This healthy Blue Chia Machine Smoothie is my new favorite this week! It has blueberries, blackberries, banana, spinach and chia seeds. After months of forgetting, I finally bought some chia seeds to start adding to my diet. If you aren’t familiar, chia seeds contain fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and many nutrients. They are truly a superfood! I prefer them to flax seeds; for flax seeds’ full benefits, you have to grind them up. Not so for chia seeds – you can just eat them whole!
