Dating on a Budget: Fun and Affordable Valentine’s Day Dates!

Whether you’re a struggling student or you’re simply trying to live more financially savvy, you can still treat your main squeeze to a fun and intimate Valentine’s Day without breaking the bank! Here are some of our favorite date ideas that will still keep you on budget!

Take a Hike…Together!

Nothing beats the affordability of your own two feet! Take a romantic stroll on the beach at sunset or gear up and head to your local trail head and enjoy the great outdoors with your special someone! Don’t forget to pack our Chia Squeeze pouches for a snack!

Watch the Sunset (or Sunrise!)

It’s hard to think of anything more romantic than watching the sun go down while embracing your one and only. Something about watching watching Mamma Earth do her thang really sets the intimate vibe! If you can’t schedule in a sunset and you’re both early risers, the good news is this show runs more than once a day and is arguably equally as romantic – it’s just in reverse!

The Classic: Picnic at the Park

Go old school with this timeless date strategy! Grab a blanket and cooler or basket filled with snacks and beverages and head to your local park!

Here is a simple Mini Peanut Butter and Chia Jam Heart Sandwiches recipe that you can include in your snack bag:

Ingredients:

  • 4-6 pieces of bread of choice
  • Peanut Butter of choice
  • Jam or Jelly of choice
  • 1 tsp chia seeds

Directions:

  1. Mix chia seeds with jelly in a separate bowl 
  2. Place peanut putter onto bread with a knife and then spread the chia jelly and onto the other side of the bread
  3. Bring together and use cookie cutters to cut into fun shapes such as hearts!
  4. Put into a container or reusable bag (such as a Stasher Bag) and enjoy!

Bike Ride

A two-seater might be hard to get, but a bike ride together makes for a great time together. If you don’t own, chances are there is an affordable bike-share service in your town, perhaps even offering complimentary rides for new service! Cycling is not only a guaranteed good time, but it’s also an environmentally-friendly way to get some cardio in together and explore more of your town! Go ahead and bring along your picnic basket and stop at the park or beach for the ultimate timeless Valentine’s Day experience!

Stream & Swoon

Some might call it Netflix & Chill, but cliche or not you can’t argue with the money-saving affordability of a movie at home. If you’re already spending money on streaming services, you may as well make it a date!

Here is a DIY Garlic Butter Chia Seed Popcorn recipe to snack to ad some class to your home-theater experience:

Ingredients/Supplies:

  • 1 bag of plain microwavable popcorn
  • 1 large bowl
  • 3 tbsp melted butter OR melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Directions:

  1. Heat the butter (or coconut oil) so that it is fully melted. Cook the popcorn as directed.
  2. Once all kernels are popped, open the bag and drizzle with the butter (or coconut oil), shaking the bag after to ensure all kernels are evenly coated. Then sprinkle the chia seeds, onion powder, and garlic powder, and toss to event coat kernels once again. 
  3. Pour into a large bowl and enjoy!

6 Reasons You’ll Love Our Organic Prebiotic Chia Squeeze!

6 Reasons You’ll Love Our Organic Chia Prebiotic Squeeze!

1. Bursting with Essential Omega-3

The benefits of Omega-3 in Chia are profound! When compared gram for gram, chia contains an impressive 10 times more Omega-3 than salmon. Omega-3 is shown to be correlated with a wide variety of health benefits including decreased inflammation, lower cholesterol, heart health, brain health, improved digestion and skin, hair and nail health! The Heart Foundation recommends 1100mg of plant-based Omega-3 per day and Mamma Chia’s Organic Chia Prebiotic Squeeze provides more than enough with 1200mg of Omega-3 per pouch!

2. Rich in Gut-Healthy Prebiotics

Prebiotics are a type of dietary fiber that feed the probiotics (the good bacteria found in your gut) that help promote a happy digestive system. Unlike probiotics, prebiotics are not live bacteria and do not naturally grow in the gut. A diet rich in prebiotics, like those sourced from chia and Jerusalem artichoke in Mamma Chia’s Organic Chia Prebiotic Squeeze, helps to ensure that probiotics in the gut remain active and healthy, which in turn keeps your gut happy and healthy!

3. An Excellent Source of Fiber

Each pouch of Mamma Chia’s Organic Chia Prebiotic Squeeze is packed with 21% of your daily recommended dietary fiber, making it an excellent source!

4. No Added Sugar & Only 70 Calories

Full of flavor and powerful nutrients, our Chia Prebiotic Squeeze is a naturally delicious blend of hydrated organic chia seeds and organic fruit and vegetable puree. There’s no added sugar and each pouch is only a low 70 calories!

5. Great for On-The-Go!

Available in two flavorful varieties, Blueberry Acai and Strawberry Lemonade, our Organic Chia Prebiotic Squeeze are shelf-stable and perfect for lunchboxes, gym bags, yoga totes and backpacks as an anytime gut-friendly snack for souls of all ages!

6. Socially Responsible and Eco-Friendly

We at Mamma Chia believe in doing good every step of the way and are dedicated to uplifting both the soul of humanity and the soul of the planet. We are proud to be a Certified B Corp, a Certified Women-Owned Business and 1% For the Planet member because we love Mamma Earth and her people!

Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Pudding – By Meghan Shookman

🍓 Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Pudding 🍓

Recipe By: Meghan Shookman (@TheShooksLife)

Ingredients:

Vanilla Cinnamon Chia Pudding
– 1 1/2 Cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
– 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
– 1/4 Teaspoons cinnamon
– 1/4 Cups + 2 Tablespoons Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds
Strawberry Rhubarb Jam
-2 1/2 Cups Strawberries (Quartered)
-1 Cups of Rhubarb, Sliced (1-2 stalks)
-4 Tablespoons Maple or Date Syrup
-2 Tablespoons Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds
-Squeeze of Lemon Juice
Garnish
– Additional fresh sliced strawberries
– Chopped nuts or a grain-free granola

Directions:

Step 1: Make the chia pudding by adding the almond milk and seasonings to a mason jar. Stir to combine. Add the chia seeds and stir until evenly distributed. Place in the refrigerator overnight. Note that I always recommend adding the chia seeds after you’ve mixed everything else together because the seeds very quickly start to clump and adhere to the mixture. Combining the other ingredients first ensures more even distribution of the flavoring.

Step 2: Make the Strawberry Rhubarb Chia Jam by adding the strawberries, rhubarb and maple (or date) syrup to a small pot over medium heat on the stove top. Stir to combine and continue heating until bubbling. Once bubbling, mash the strawberries and rhubarb with a fork or potato masher, then add the chia seeds. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened. Remove from heat and give it a squeeze of lemon. Store in a covered mason jar for up to a week.

Step 3: Layer equal amounts of the jam into 3-4 glasses or mason jars. Top with the chia pudding once it has set and garnish with additional freshly sliced strawberries as well as chopped nuts or granola.

October is Non-GMO Month!

October is Non-GMO month which celebrates the consumer’s right to choose non-GMO products as well as raise awareness about the GMO issue and supports the brands and retailers that have made a non-GMO commitment. Here at Mamma Chia, we are proud to say that all of our products are Non GMO Project Verified and Certified Organic! ✅

Make sure to look for the Butterfly 🦋when shopping and remember, organic is ALWAYS non-GMO!

What is a GMO?

Genetically modified organisms are any living organism whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory using genetic engineering.

Project Mission

Since its origins, the Non-GMO Project has been a collaboration between stakeholders from the entire food supply chain, along with a network of technical and expert advisers from a broad and diverse range of backgrounds and sectors. We all have to work together to provide consumers an informed choice about GMO consumption and to preserve and build our non-GMO food supply!

Verified

The verification process includes segregation and traceability measures, ongoing testing for major GMO risk ingredients, and prohibits emerging genetic engineering technologies.

The Checkmark 

The checkmark leaf symbolizes the approval process of the non-GMO crops used in verified products.

The Butterfly 🦋

The butterfly symbolizes the interconnectedness of our food choices and the world’s ecosystem. The monarch’s survival has also been directly threatened by GMOs and chemical agriculture.

Easy Ways to Become More Eco-Friendly

In honor of Earth Day week, we decided to make a list of of all the ways YOU can become more eco-friendly in your everyday life! 🍃🌎

1️⃣ Reduce Food Waste

-Shop from bulk bins. Some products you can get include: flour, sugar, cereal/granola, oats, nuts/seeds, beans/lentils, and grains. This also makes it easy to buy the exact amounts that you need so you don’t end up buying too much plus you aren’t wasting extra packaging products usually come in.

-Use mason jars and reusable bags when buying in bulk

-Start a garden and eat the fruits and veggies from it! (This also cuts down on your carbon footprint)

-Start a compost and use it to fertilize your plants/garden

-Use loose leaf tea rather than packaged tea

-Purchase foods that come in recyclable or compostable packaging

*Did YOU know that our Organic Mamma Chia Vitality Beverages are 100% recyclable?*

 

2️⃣ Shop Mindfully

-Say NO to shopping bags! Not just at grocery stores, but even at the mall 🛍️

-Bring your own reusable/collapsible bags ! (Keep one in your car at all times)

-Shop Local: Both clothing and food. This also supports the local economy!

-Shop Second-Hand: –Local thrift shops such as Goodwill or ones that donate money to charities

-Online/phone applications: Thred Up, Poshmark, Vinted, eBay, letgo, and Craigslist

-Think before you purchase! Do you really NEED it? Can you fix it before replacing it?

-Purchase from eco-conscious brands that use recyclable packaging/materials, sustainable ingredients, and are part of organizations such as 1% for the Planet

-Purchase Certified USDA Organic products

 *Did YOU know that Mamma Chia is a Certified B Corp, member of 1% for the planet, Non-GMO, and USDA Organic?*

 

3️⃣ Reusable Products

-Glass, stainless steel, and silicone storage containers are perfect to use for packed lunches

-Bring them to restaurants, especially when you know you will have leftovers

-Bring a reusable water bottle or cup when going out to buy drinks such as smoothies, coffee, or tea

-Say NO to plastic straws or bring your own stainless steel straw

-Use washable cloths instead of paper towels

 

4️⃣ Bathroom Tips:

-Take shorter showers 🚿

-Use products that minimize packaging waste such as shampoo and soap bars and toothpaste tablets

-Use biodegradable products such as Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap (You can purchase their products in bulk as well!)

-Washable makeup and hygiene products such as face wipes, makeup pads, and feminine products

-Use wooden combs and toothbrushes instead of plastic ones

-Use GREEN cleaning products: Opt for all natural and organic methods of cleaning

 

5️⃣ Transportation:

-Walk, run, skateboard, roller blade, scooter, bike – these are ALL options you can take instead of driving! 🚲

-There are also options such as electric vehicles, electric scooters and bikes, and public transportation that help to lessen greenhouse gas emissions 

-Park further away (Bonus, you get more exercise!) 

 

6️⃣ Recycle:

Take a minute before throwing your trash in the garbage to find out if you can recycle it instead ♻️
