Mamma Chia Giveaway...

If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, than you have probably seen my love of Chia seeds. I have used chia seeds in many of my recipes and drinks. There are some amazing benefits to these tiny little seeds.

So you better believe when I had the chance to review MammaChia Products, I jumped at the chance. I received this awesome package full of goodies in the mail.

And a few days later I received the Ready to Drink Vitality drinks in the mail to try. (Unfortunately they don't sell it at the stores local to me, hopefully that will change soon. Fingers crossed).

Let me tell you these drinks were delicious. I know some of you guys are probably not too keen on having seeds in your drinks, however you really don't notice them in the MammaChia drinks. My favorite was definitely the coconut mango.
Another great thing about Chia Seeds is that they virtually have no taste. You can pretty much add them to anything. I have added them to my burgers, chili, smoothies, yogurts, and even my drinks. MammaChia Margarita anyone?

I was super excited to review the Chia Vitality book by Janie Hoffman. I am almost finished with the book and will give you guys an update on my thoughts next week sometime. One thing I know is that there are some amazing recipes in this book. To order or check out Janie's Chia Vitality book HERE.

One of my favorite recipes that I have made many times now since receiving the MammaChia seeds is "Janie's Chia Vitality Pudding"

Its so easy to make and have on hand for those post workout snacks. I also have been adding a scoop of Cellucor Molton Chocolate protein powder while mixing. Its the best breakfast I have had in a long time.

If you have kids the you probably have had them ask for dessert and wished you had something healthy but tasty enough to call "dessert". You should make them me Chia Carrot Date Balls. They are delicious and #kidapproved.

Another MammaChia product that not only I have loved, my kids have loved also is the Chia Squeeze. I'm sure you have seen similar products in your store containing applesauce. The packages make it easy for my kids to grab and go. I took one to use during a swim session and it was just enough nutrition for me to keep going with out feeling bogged down.
