Beat the Heat with Mamma Chia & Kodiak Cakes

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!

Surfing

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.

Caving

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!

Bonfire

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.

Leg One

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.

Leg Two

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.

Leg Three

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.

Here are 4 fun and festive recipes to make your 4th of July sparkle with joy! 🇺🇸

Blissfully Patriotic Blueberry Pie [GLUTEN FREE]

This pie will take your 4th of July festivities to the next level! Sweet blueberries combine with our tasty Blackberry Bliss Chia Squeeze to make this a treat your guests will never forget (with half the guilt)!

Recipes to Make Your 4th of July Sparkle

Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 2 ½ cups organic all-purpose gluten free flour
  • 2 Tbsp. organic sugar
  • 1 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 12 Tbsp. organic cold butter or vegetable shortening
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 4 tsp. organic lemon juice or vinegar

For the filling:

  • 5 cups fresh organic blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed organic lemon juice
  • 1 Mamma Chia Organic Blackberry Bliss Chia Squeeze
  • 3 Tbsp. organic cornstarch
  • ½ cup organic coconut sugar + extra for sprinkling on top
  • ¼ tsp. organic cinnamon
  • 1 large organic egg, beaten with 1 Tbsp. water (for egg wash).
    • Vegan? Use organic coconut oil!

Preparation

If using store-bought dough (which is totally fine!) skip steps 1-7:

  1. Mix together flour, xanthan gum, salt and sugar.
  2. Cut the butter or shortening into small chunks and work them into the flour mixture until crumbly.
  3. Whisk the egg and lemon juice or vinegar together till very foamy. Mix into the flour/butter mixture until it all hold together, adding 1-3 additional tablespoons of cold water if necessary.
  4. Shape dough into a large ball and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour (up to overnight).
  5. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and allow to rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before rolling.
  6. Cut mixture in half and roll into 2 balls (one for each crust or topping).
  7. With floured hands, roll 1 of the dough balls and place onto a sheet of floured parchment or wax paper.
  8. Lightly grease your 9” pie pan and place the bottom dough layer into the pan. Cover crust with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  9. Roll out the other ball (your top crust) into a circle approximately 1 inch larger in diameter than pie pan. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. NOTE: If making a lattice crust, roll into 1/8 inch thick rectangle (approx. 11 x 14 inches). Cut into 10 separate strips (about ¾ inch wide). Cover strips in plastic wrap and chill for about 30 minutes.
  10. Place one oven rack on the bottom and one in the middle. Preheat your over to 400 degrees F.
  11. In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice and Blackberry Bliss Chia Squeeze, gradually sprinkling in cornstarch, until smooth. Stir in coconut sugar and cinnamon. Fold in blueberries to coat. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
  12. Take crust out of refrigerator (if you haven’t done so already) and pour blueberry mixture into prepared bottom crust.
  13. Brush the rim of the crust with egg wash or coconut oil.
  14. Place top crust on and crimp together edges with fingertips to seal the bottom and top crusts. Be sure to cut some slits for ventilation. If using a cookie cutter to create a star vents, do so right before placing your crust on top of your pie. NOTE: If dough seems soft and warm, cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes.
  15. Brust crust with egg wash or coconut oil, sprinkle with coconut sugar and place pie on baking sheet on the bottom rack for 20 minutes.
  16. Reduce heat to 375 degrees F and transfer pie (while still on baking sheet) to center rack and continue baking for 30-40 minutes. If edges begin to brown, cover the edges with foil. If the entire top crust starts to brown too quickly, tent pie loosely with foil.
  17. Remove from oven and let cool to set and thicken. Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

5 Ways to Greenify Your Home this Earth Day!

With more time spent at home and in honor of Earth Day this month, we’ve been thinking a lot about all the wonderfully sustainable ways you can greenify your home!

Plant a Garden! 🌿🌻

Herbs, veggies, fruits – if you have the space of a small yard or balcony, you can start growing your own produce. You can learn more about balcony gardening HERE.

Be Eco-Wise While Reducing Your Energy Bill! 💡

It’s the little things – closing your blinds and curtains to help cool your home on sunny days, keeping windows closed on colder days to retain heat, shutting off lights (plus switching to energy-efficient bulbs) and unplugging unused appliances when you leave the room and only running the washer and dryer or dishwasher for full loads. It all adds up! We’re spending more time at home, so to compensate, it certainly helps to be cognizant of your energy use. With a little effort, you’ll see less of an impact on your energy bill and if we all do our part, Mamma Earth benefits!

Switch to All-Natural Cleaning Products ! 🧼

An impactful, everyday change you can make in your homes is to ditch harsh chemical cleaners and use all-natural cleaning products. DIY is a great option (check out some options HERE) and there are plenty of great, natural brands to help you create a healthy home, such as our friends at Branch Basics!

Purchase Certified Organic and Eco-Conscious products!🍴🌎

Opting for Certified Organic products has a major impact on the planet. Organic farming practices reduce pollution and soil erosion, increase soil fertility, conserve water, and use less energy. They are better for the environment because their production doesn’t demand the use of cheap, harmful chemicals. Supporting organic avoids a large environmental impact from the use of pesticides, which can be carried as runoff to watersheds when it rains, affecting the water quality in surrounding areas. All Mamma Chia products are USDA Certified Organic an Non-GMO Project Verified!

Reduce and Reuse! ♻️

We’ve all grown up knowing the importance of recycling, but you can make an even larger positive impact on  he environment by ensuring you reduce and reuse as much as you can! There are so many items we typically discard that can easily find new life and fulfill a second purpose around your home. Those coffee grounds, potato peelings, brown bananas and rotten peas are perfect compost for your garden. You can purchase an affordable compost bin or learn how to make your own HERE!

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!

6 Reasons to LOVE Chia in 2020!

How exactly does so much joy come from such a tiny seed? Although small in stature, chia is bursting with an immense supply of vitality, energy and strength. It may feel like magic, but the source is no mystery!

Omega-3

Omega-3 is a polyunsaturated fat and considered an essential fatty acid because it cannot be manufactured by the body. For such a tiny seed, chia is quite high in Omega-3, boasting more than 10x the amount of Omega-3 in salmon (when compared gram for gram). Studies have shown that Omega-3 fatty acids work to protect the heart by lowering blood pressure, bad cholesterol and inflammation!

Dietary Fiber

Chia seeds have both soluble and insoluble fiber, which can aid in digestion. The rich fiber content in chia seeds also helps people feel more full quicker!

Antioxidants

Research has shown that free radicals play a major role in disease formation and antioxidants reduce the effects of free radical damage, thus protecting healthy cells!

Complete Protein

Not only is the protein from chia plant-based, it’s also complete protein (or whole protein)! Complete protein contains the desired proportion of all nine essential amino acids believed to be necessary for the dietary needs of humans!

Calcium + Magnesium

Beyond Omega-3, fiber and protein, chia seeds are also a source of calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and zinc! When compared gram for gram, chia seeds have 5x more calcium than milk and 15x more magnesium than broccoli!

You can discover the many benefits of chia seeds by enjoying your favorite Mamma Chia products!

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.

How to Start a Food Trend

Like Sambazon, Mamma Chia focused on building awareness through a national sampling program with the intent to “have as many souls as possible experience the magic of chia.” Click here to read more!

Mamma Chia: Women Owned and Female Founded

We are excited, honored, and grateful to announce that Mamma Chia is officially a Certified Women-Owned Business and joining a diverse and passionate group of female founders in The F Project! We believe that women and girls are catalysts for powerful and positive change in the world and providing them with more equal opportunities will help them reach their full potential.  Equality for women can be achieved when we all make a conscious decision to make it happen, and that’s why we are so proud to be a Certified Women-Owned Business and a new member of The F Project community!

 

OUR STORY:

The path of becoming a Certified Women-Owned Business and F Project member began with the personal journey of Mamma Chia’s founder and CEO, Janie Hoffman. For almost two decades, Janie was challenged with an array of autoimmune disorders, including lupus, dermatomyositis and scleroderma, causing severe rashes and persistent fatigue. Her quest to address and heal these challenges eventually led her to the nutritional powerhouse of chia, which she incorporated into a wholesome, organic diet and wellness routine. She soon began experiencing the vitality, energy and strength that had eluded her for so long. Within a few months, Janie was celebrating a symptom-free life, and the only thing different in her routine was chia.

Janie became so enchanted with these little seeds that she was adding them to everything in her kitchen and whipping up chia-based treats for family and friends. These nutritious and delicious creations included her innovative chia beverages, which proved to be one of her biggest hits. In the summer of 2009, fueled by her passion to share organic chia with the world, Janie founded Mamma Chia — the first chia-based food and beverage company.

 

THE F PROJECT:

In 2018, only 2.2% of all venture capital invested in the U.S. went to companies founded solely by women. Yet women do about 70% of all consumer spending. Despite the lack of investment money, women have managed to generate 1.7 trillion dollars in sales and employ over 9 million people. With the goal of helping female founders become more visible to consumers, The F Project has been launched to create a community that will take a pledge to seek out, buy, and gift female-founded products, and mentor and support fellow female founders to help get more women-led businesses off the ground.

Learn more about The F Project and take the pledge HERE!

 

WHY BUY WOMEN-OWNED & FEMALE FOUNDED:

When you support Women-Owned and female-founded businesses, you are investing in women’s economic empowerment, gender parity in commerce, vibrant communities, and the growth of the overall economy. These successes can create diverse opportunities that inspire and empower the next generation of women entrepreneurs. Investing in women’s economic empowerment helps tremendously with paving a path towards gender equality and inclusive economic growth.

There are many ways you can join us in this powerful movement of elevating women into leadership roles, and we hope you start by using your spending power to purchase products from Certified Women-Owned and female-founded businesses.  Please join us in supporting The F Project by amplifying the visibility of female-founded brands and the voices of the women who created them. Together, we CAN make a difference!

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

6️⃣ Recycle:

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

National Chia Day 💜 March 23rd, 2019

It’s that time of year everyone – National Chia Day is THIS weekend! Did you know that Chia Seeds are one of THE MOST nutrient-rich foods on the planet!? They can easily be incorporated into almost every meal. We are also doing a giveaway which you can find all the details for at the bottom of this page!

Not too familiar with Chia Seeds? Below are some amazing facts about this tiny, but mighty superfood.

What is Chia?

Chia seeds come from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, which is a flowering member of the mint family and is native to North, Central, and South America.  They have been enjoyed for thousands of years and can be traced all the way back to 3,000 B.C. where it was a staple of both Maya and Aztec diets. They believed one tablespoon of chia was capable of sustaining a warrior for 24 hours!

What are the health benefits of Chia?

  • Omega-3: They are extremely high in Omega-3, which is a polyunsaturated fat and is considered to be an essential fatty acid since it cannot be manufactured by the body. Studies have shown that Omega-3 fatty acids work to protect the heart by lowering blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and inflammation.
  • Dietary Fiber: Chia Seeds have both soluble and insoluble fiber, which can aid in digestion. The gelatinous texture that forms on the outside when the seeds are hydrated is the soluble fiber! Being rich in fiber content also helps people feel more full quicker and longer.
  • Complete Protein: Not only does it contain plant-based protein, but it also contains complete protein (aka whole protein)! Complete protein contains the desired proportion of all nine essential amino acid believed to be necessary for the dietary needs of humans.
  • Vitamins & Minerals: Chia seeds are also a source of calcium, iron, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, and zinc!
  • Antioxidants: Research has shown that free radicals play a major role in disease formation and antioxidants reduce the effect of free radical damage, thus protecting healthy cells!
  • Hydration: When chia seeds are placed in water, they can swell up to 12x their normal size! Due to the extra retained H2O, consuming hydrated chia seeds can help you stay hydrated for a longer period of time.
  • Prebiotic: Prebiotic foods are high in special types of fiber that help to support digestive health. They are believed to promote the increase of friendly bacteria in the gut, help with various digestive problems, improve metabolic health, and even boost your immune system!

What can I do with Chia Seeds?

Chia pudding, chia water, chia muffins…the possibilities are endless! Powerhouse versatility makes it a welcome addition to any meal, snack, or beverage, wether it be a smoothie, parfait, salad – you name it!
