I am enamored with Chia seeds. I want to incorporate them into my everyday and am working toward that. They provide Omegas by the truck load, protein, calcium and belly loving fiber without calories. They beef up baked goods, feed hungry muscles post workout and are really inexpensive. Yes please!
The other day I found a new chilled drink called Mamma Chia. Their tag line is Seed Your Soul and I think that is lovely. I went for the Cherry Lime but they also offer Blackberry Hibiscus, Cranberry Lemonade and Raspberry Passion. It is an entirely organic beverage full of Chia seeds. It is lightly sweetened (read pleasantly tart) with organic agave nectar and has a scant 14g of sugar for the whole bottle. The flavor was refreshing and familiar like a Lime Rickey.
Drinking it made me feel like I do when I down an Airborne tablet…ready to take on the world wearing a coat of antioxidant armor. Whether it was real or perceived matters not to me because I believe they both work equally as well. Every single time I have told myself that an Airborne or that extra helping of kale was protecting me from the flu that everyone around me was succumbing to…..it has.
My Mamma Chia drink made me feel strong and buzzing inside. It felt like it woke up my organs and cells from a long winter’s nap. I now have such an appreciation for foods and beverages that contribute to my greatest good. Being able to crack it open and enjoy it passively was just a bonus. Can’t wait for another bottle. They have a location finder on their site so you can find some too.
Have a delicious weekend.
