Disclosure: This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Mamma Chia. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
Until recently, I had never heard of Mamma Chia. I didn't even know what it was until I was introduced. A brand just for us ladies! Just what I need! I am a busy bee. My daughter Lydia gets up at 7AM, I then start housework and do my blogging. I also go pick her up from school at 2:40PM. I wait in the line until 3:30 PM and that is when we get home. We do our homework while eating a snack and by 5:00 PM, she is headed off to Softball Practice! By time I do all of that, I need a boost! Mamma Chia provides sustained energy to power your soul’s purpose. I was introduced to these Chia Squeeze Vitality Snacks and they are amazing!
Check out the back story- It started on a small farm in rural San Diego, where Mamma Chia founder and CEO, Janie Hoffman, in her quest to find an ideal diet for her own health, fell in love with the magic of chia. Janie quickly discovered this amazing little seed was providing a powerful vitality boost and was instrumental in addressing some challenging health issues related to longstanding autoimmune disorders. In the summer of 2009, fueled by her passion for chia and her commitment to be of service to humanity and the planet, Janie founded Mamma Chia — the first organic, chia-based food and beverage company. Leave it up to an awesome woman to create something this amaaazzingg! If you are wondering- there are six flavors in the Organic Chia Squeeze Drinks. Flavors consist of Apple Cinnamon, Blackberry Bliss, Mango Coconut.
There is also Wild Raspberry, Strawberry Bananas and Green Magic.
Check it out! Every pouch has 1,200 mg of Omega 3's! The equivalent to eating a single serving of salmon. They also have 4g of Fiber (25% of your daily intake), 2g compete protein, 70 calories per pouch (Mango Coconut has 80), AND it is 1 PointsPlus on Weight Watchers! How cool is that! Best of all, Each pouch retails for $1.79! Completely inexpensive if you ask me. My favorite flavor is Blackberry Bliss!
The texture is something that you will have to get used to. At first it is a slimy taste. I will just compare it to when you eat the inside of a tomato. Chia Squeeze Vitality Snacks are Organic Certified and Non-GMO Verified too! Who doesn't love that?!
There are some other products that Mamma Chia has to offer as well! Organic Vitality Beverages! They contain Mamma Chia Vitality Beverages pair the highest quality organic chia seeds with delicious organic fruit juices and is lightly sweetened with a touch of organic agave nectar. The pleasing appearance of the chia seeds suspended throughout the beverage adds a compelling quality full of heart and brain-healthy Omega-3s, powerful antioxidants and dietary fibers, as well as complete protein, calcium and magnesium. Combined, these nutrients create a vital force that delivers the power to live the life you’ve always wanted. I received 9 coupons to score these drinks! Can't wait to try them too! You can score these for the MSRP of $2.99.
They also offer Organic Chia Seeds and their newest Organic Clean Energy Drink! The Mamma Chia Clean Energy Vitality Beverages are coming in September 2014! They are the FIRST Chia- based energy drink! Mamma Chia Vitality + Energy organic beverages combine the powerful nutrients of chia with the pure, clean energy of Guayusa and refreshing organic fruit juices. The result is a delicious beverage that delivers 2500 mg of Omega-3s, 90 mg of natural caffeine (about as much in an 8 oz. cup of coffee), twice the antioxidants of a cup of green tea, along with fiber and protein. Stay tuned and be on the lookout for them!
