As many of you know, I am a big fan of chia seeds.  If you watch on stories, you’ve seen me put them in our baked goods and smoothies.  I truly believe chia seeds are one of the most important staples of a healthy lifestyle, and I’ve teamed up with my favorite chia brand– Mamma Chia, to tell you why.

These tiny little seeds have been found to be beneficial for anti-aging, heart health, digestive health, bone density and much more.  I actually know of someone who experienced these health benefits and much more- the owner of Mamma Chia.  Janie Hoffman, the genius behind my favorite brand, suffered for decades dealing with auto-immune issues.  She switched to an organic diet and started incorporating chia seeds into her everyday life.  Guess what? She went into remission!  Which is what brought about her passion for bringing healthy chia-infused food items for the world to enjoy.

We typically have Mamma Chia products in our house.  Henley loves the Chia Squeeze pouches, as do I for a quick snack as I’m headed out the door. They are also TSA approved and great to throw in your carry-on as a healthy mid-flight snack. I also enjoy the Chia Beverages as a recovery drink after a hard workout!  They contain 2500mg of Omega 3, protein, calcium and fiber.  And you’ve seen me use the Chia Granola Clusters in a Greek yogurt for a snack or as a breakfast option.  If you haven’t tried this granola- you must!  It is DELICIOUS and much healthier than so many other granolas out there.

    I’ve been putting chia seeds in so many things lately, including our smoothies and oatmeal. They are so easy to add to a few things and so good for us!

    Great post! I often use chia seeds in my baking – love it in bread with other seeds! However, here in Europe we don’t have any of the other things you talk about – would be very interested in the drink, for example, but have never seen anything like it. I am jealous, it has to be said!

    I have heard so much about chia seeds and always thought of them as just another marketing scam to make us buy them. But I am really going to give them a try! This was a very informative post, thank you!

    I am not a huge fan of the texture of chia seeds but I think that’s just because I haven’t had them mixed into the right thing yet. I would be totally willing to try that drink just to see.

    Looks like there are some great products here. Honestly I have not done the chia stuff because it freaks me out a little bit. But I know some people who live by it. I just need to bite the bullet and try it out. I am sure it’s not as bad as I would think it to be.
