Smoothie on the Go Go

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram you've seen my posts about smoothies. I literally drink one EVERY morning unless I'm out of town.  Its the perfect energy booster for my long days and keeps my immunity defenses on full protection mode.

But, if you're travelling or you happen to be running late out the door one morning, there's another great option for you!  Chia Vie!!

As a disclaimer, I'll be acting as a spokesmodel with this company in the future to promote their product. However, I would not have agreed to work with them if I honestly did not think that their product is AMAZING! Its jam packed with nutrients, all natural ingredients and taste delicious. My favorite flavor is Mango!

If you are one of those people that hates the gelatinous slime of chia seeds...don't worry. This smoothie in a bottle goes down easy and the flavors aren't overpowering.

Each bottle has two full servings of fruit, no added sugar, vegan, gluten free and full of all the benefits of chia seeds. Wanna try it out? You can purchase it online or check out your local Whole Foods or Cotsco!

Drink to your health,

Top 5 Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you know that I am a HUGE fan of chia seeds. I have them almost every morning in my smoothie and I swear they are the best thing since sliced bread. 

Actually, they've been around for much longer. For centuries in fact. Dating back to the Mayan and Aztec civilizations. These groups were definitely on to something. As more and more food and beverage products begin to incorporate these fab seeds in their mixes, here are five reasons why YOU should include chia seeds in your diet.

  1. Omega-3s: Chia seeds are one of the richest plant-based sources for omega-3s. Usually found in fish, this is a great replacement for our vegan friends. In case you didn't know, Omega-3s are good for reducing inflammation, enhancing cognitive performance and reducing high cholesterol.
  2. Blood sugar regulation: Chia seeds are a great way to regulate insulin levels. 
  3. Satiety : aka the feeling of being full. With the combination of protein and fiber, Chia seeds can reduce the in between meals food cravings.
  4. Fiber:  we all know why fiber is good for us. Eat some chia to help keep your insides squeaky clean.
  5. Metabolism: Chia seeds are full of minerals that help with preventing hypertension and maintaining a healthy body weight.
