Chia seeds are rich in fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium and of course omega-3 fatty acids. They are little nutrition powerhouses. I think that if you do not eat foods such as fish often, you should incorporate either chia or ground flax into your diet to meet your omega-3 needs.
Mamma Chia makes two great chia seed products: a chia squeeze and a chia drink. The chia squeeze comes in a pouch that is easy to eat on the go. It is great for busy moms or for kids for their lunches or after school snacks. With a baby due very soon, I know it will be harder to prepare meals and have ample time to eat my meals so Mamma Chia products will come in handy.
I enjoyed trying these chia squeeze drinks. They are different than anything that I have had before but are a good boost of nutrition for when you need it. The mango coconut was my favorite flavor.
Mamma Chia products are sold at Whole Foods, Target, Costco, Kroger and more. Check out Mamma Chia on Facebook and Twitter for more information.
