Tiny but mighty, these black seeds are rich in protein, fiber, and omega-3s (which are healthy for the heart, brain, and seemingly everything else). Though popular in smoothies and oatmeal, chia seeds aren’t just for breakfast. Add them to rice pilaf for extra fiber, or use them in a smoky veggie burger as a binder, since they plump up when mixed with wet ingredients. They even take on a nice gel-like texture, making them the perfect thickener for a zesty vinaigrette. Click here to read more!
Nutrient-rich chia seeds provide the base for Mamma Chia’s dairy-free milk product with more calcium than a traditional glass of milk with zero grams of sugar. Available in both Unsweetened Original and Unsweetened Vanilla, Chiamilk has only 60-70 calories per serving. Click here to read more!
Did you know that 2020 is on track to rank in the top five hottest years on record? But don’t let the heat get you down, Mamma Chia and Kodiak Cakes have come together to keep you adventuring all summer long! Check out some of our favorite summer activities that you can do from the sandy beaches of Mamma Chia’s coastal hometown to the mountain tops of Kodiak Cakes’ bear liar. We’ve even crafted four recipes with the nourishment you’ll need to help you keep cool along the way!
It might seem a bit cliché, but surfing is synonymous with the summer – especially at Mamma Chia’s home base in Carlsbad, CA. No matter what your skill level, each summer day brings an opportunity for some wave-catching fun. If you’re just starting out, there’s surf lessons abound at almost every surfable beach up and down both the east and west coasts. If you’re an intermediate to advanced surfer, get out of your comfort zone and try riding a retro board or less common shape, such as a bonzer, mini simmons or asymmetrical design.
In a small mountain town surfing may seem an unlikely summer activity in the mountains, however; winter runoff keeps mountain lakes and reservoirs full and waiting to be used come summer. Whether you’re a boating fanatic who wakes up before dawn to make it to the lake, or someone who has never been on a boat before, wakesurfing is a sport for everyone! If you have a boat, you’re probably familiar with the ins and outs of wakesurfing and what you’ll need. If you’re just learning, make sure to bring a towel, a life jacket if you have one, and a good attitude. It may take a couple tries to stand up, but it’s worth the fun you’ll have riding the wave!
Nothing revitalizes after a sun-soaked surf session quite like an Acai Bowl. This recipe packs in nutrients from Mamma Chia Organic Unsweetened Original Chiamilk and Kodiak Cakes Crunchy Bars to help replenish your energy stores after a full day of catching waves and wake.

If you’re looking for a fun, out-of-the-box summer adventure, consider caving! Either by kayak or on foot. If renting a sea kayak, we recommend asking a local shop about the details. If you own a kayak (or SUP), make sure to do your research, especially when it comes to safety precautions and prerequisites. Group tours are always a good option as well. Whichever you choose, you have our word it’ll be an unforgettable experience!
The fun part about mountain caves is discovering the mysteries inside them. But caving in the mountains is a bit like geocaching, you’re going to have to hunt a little bit to find where the caves are hidden. When you do, make sure to be well equipped with a flashlight or headlamp, snacks, water, and an extra jacket. Some caves require a little more gear and knowledge than your own two legs and a flashlight for exploration. In that case, we suggest doing a little research or calling a shop in your area for more information.
When it comes to keeping hydrated on your caving adventure, you’ll want to plan ahead! We recommend mixing things up with this delicious Blended Chia Lemonade, made using Mamma Chia Organic Unsweetened Original Chiamilk, Kodiak Cakes Apricot Syrup, and Mamma Chia Organic Chia Seeds! Fill up a canteen to keep cold on your journey or save to enjoy for a post-caving toast!

There’s no better way to cap off a summer day than by gathering around a crackling bonfire with your friends and reveling about the day’s adventures. If you’re at the coast, a beach bonfire is an absolute must. Nothing beats the feeling of toes in the sand and the sound of crashing waves in the dark while you keep warm by a fire! Locate the nearest beach that permits bonfires, or – better yet – snag a public fire pit early in the evening as they tend to fill up quick in the summer months! Remember to bring all the beach bonfire essentials: firewood, matches (or lighter), beach chairs, beach blankets and a cooler with ice. We highly recommend starter sticks, old newspaper and lighter fluid to help get the flame going and stay alive.
High up in the mountains, gather around a campfire with your friends and enjoy the smell of fresh pine as you stay warm in the crisp mountain air. While you take turns sharing campfire stories & making s’mores, you’ll wonder where time went as the flames start dying down after a few hours and there are no more marshmallows left to roast. In addition to firewood and matches, don’t forget to bring along a warm blanket, bug spray, camp chairs, and – of course – s’more supplies. Lastly, remember to always double check fire danger in your area.
As for refreshments, bring along ingredients to shake up this special Summer Refresher featuring Mamma Chia Organic Blackberry Hibiscus Chia Beverages and Kodiak Cakes Mountain Berry Syrup!

Beat the Heat Summer Adventure Challenge
So, you’ve gone for a solid surf, marveled at some cool caves, and hosted the bonfire of the summer. Now you’re ready for our Beat the Heat Summer Adventure Challenge! First things first, a challenge like this calls for a nourishing breakfast like this Overnight Oats recipe. Yes, as the name implies, you’ll need to prep the night before using Mamma Chia Organic Wild Raspberry Chia Squeeze and Kodiak Cakes Power Oats. But, prepping ahead of time also means you can better “beat the heat” by getting an early start! Once you finish your breakfast, you’ll be ready to take on the challenge.

We’ve put our own spin on the classic bike-swim-run triathlon format, but you have the freedom to choose your intensity.
Whether you find yourself on the coast or in the mountains, first plot your journey with a 6-12-mile bike ride to your favorite bay or mountain lake. You can choose to keep it casual with a brisk pedal on your beach cruiser, go all out on the road, or hit the trails on top your trusty mountain bike.
Once you arrive at your destination, get ready for a ¼ to ½ mile swim. If you want to use a wet suit, we suggest carrying it with you on the bike, or arranging with someone to have it ready for you before it’s time to take the plunge. Make sure to use landmarks for your swim entry and exit to track your distance.
You may be soaking wet, but it’s time for the final leg — a 1-3-mile run! Whether you choose to take on this leg from the sand, cement, or dirt, your legs will probably feel like you’re running through chia or syrup but keep your eyes on the prize—you’re almost done!
If you complete our Beat the Heat Summer Challenge, we want to hear about it! Track your distances, snap some photos of your journey, and share them with us on Instagram by tagging @mammachia & @kodiakcakes—we’d love to send you some coupons for crossing the finish line!
Lastly, don’t forget to enter our Beat the Heat Summer Giveaway for the chance to win an exclusive prize pack of Kodiak Cakes and Mamma Chia products & swag.

The most MAGICAL day of the year is almost here — National Chia Day! In 2016, Mamma Chia officially designated March 23rd as National Chia Day with the registrar of National Day Calendar! Now observed for its third year, this day recognizes the tiny, yet powerful chia seed that has earned its reputation as being one of the MOST nutrient-rich foods on the planet! Revered by the Maya and Aztecs for their amazing healing powers and natural energy, chia seeds have become a trusted staple for people around the world and can be enjoyed in many foods and beverages!
March 23rd is an extra magical date – not only is it National Chia Day, but it also wonderfully marks National Puppy Day! We at Mamma Chia couldn’t think of a more perfect way to mark the dual occasion than by partnering with our friends and neighbors at Rancho Coastal Humane Society! We are excited to announce the first ever Mamma Chia Pet Adoption Week presented by Rancho Coastal Humane Society, that will begin on March 23rd and last through the end of the month!
We will be donating $100 worth of chia beverages and snacks to every delightful family and soul who adopts a pet from RCHS over the week!
Mamma Chia will be also on site at RCHS on National Chia Day spreading the Mamma Chia Magic to our community and hopeful adopters, as well as treating all fur friends to some freshly baked chia dog treats!

PEANUT BUTTER & PUMPKIN DOG TREATS

About the Rancho Coastal Humane Society:
Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) was formed in 1960 by a group of hardworking volunteers, led by animal lover Maria K. Lloyd. The goal was and continues to be to care for the homeless animal population of San Diego County and to educate the public about pet overpopulation and responsible companion animal care. In the nearly 58 years since its inception, RCHS has grown from a small facility run by volunteers to a professionally managed humane society that provides quality shelter care, adoption services, education programs and an animal safehouse program for the survivors of domestic violence.
One of RCHS’ main goals is the adoption of animals to permanent, loving homes. After finding the perfect match, RCHS helps prospective adopters learn about health care, nutrition requirements, grooming, exercise, responsible pet ownership, socialization and the importance of the human/animal bond.
The Rancho Coastal Humane Society is a non-profit, 501(c)3, charitable organization. They are not tax supported, nor funded by any government agency. Please consider making a donation today!
Take a look at the current list of adoptable pets by Clicking Here. Many of the animals listed have explanations of their personalities, including how they react to cats and children, and what kinds of activities make them happiest.
Keep in mind that adopting a pet is a big decision. Dogs and cats are living beings who require a lot of time, money, and commitment–over 15 years’ worth in many cases. Pet ownership can be incredibly rewarding, but only if you think through your decision before you adopt a companion.
Please note: In order to potentially adopt and interact with an animal, you must be present at the shelter with a completed pre-adoption application submitted to the front desk no later than 4:30 pm.
We are absolutely thrilled to celebrate National Chia Day at Rancho Coastal Humane Society this Friday, March 23rd and we can’t wait to see you there! If you are unable to attend, there are plenty of other ways to commemorate the day by adding chia to every meal and making sure to post on social media using #ItsChiaDay2018! Or, post a picture showing your puppy having some fun with chia using #ChiaAndPuppies. For every #, we’ll donate $1 to RCHS! You can also find out how to support Rancho Coastal Humane Society by visiting here: https://rchumanesociety.org/give/donate/
