Mamma Chia - Natural Food Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

A gal pal of mine is very mindful of her food. She reads labels religiously and eats as close to nature as possible. I'm not quite at her level but have been more mindful of what I put into my body. In fact, she's the one that introduced me to chia seeds and their benefits.

For those not in the know, chia seeds are the richest plant-based source of Omega-3s on the planet. An excellent source of dietary fiber, complete protein and antioxidants, both the Maya and the Aztecs held this ancient seed in high esteem for increasing vitality, strength, and overall good health.
Allyson with a Chia & Greens beverage

Mamma Chia revolutionized the beverage industry by launching the first chia beverage in 2011, followed by the first of its kind, innovative Chia Squeeze. They also have Chia Granola Clusters. The Mamma Chia Organic Chia Granola Clusters are available in three flavors - Wild Blueberry, Vanilla Almond, and Cinnamon Pecan.  Bursting with nutrient-rich chia seeds, whole rolled oats, wild blueberries or toasted nuts, each crunchy granola cluster is naturally sweetened with a touch of golden honey and rich molasses.

Each granola cluster is full of chia seeds.  Depending on which flavor you eat, there's also whole rolled oats, tasty berries, or toasted nuts.  Each is naturally sweetened with golden honey and rich molasses.  The bags are re-sealable, locking in freshness.
 
The Mamma Chia Organic Chia Granola Clusters are crunchy and tasty.  The chia seeds are noticeable and present but they don't beat down the other flavors.  They're a healthy snack that have been well-received.  My husband has thrown a few on top of ice cream and my 3 year old niece almost ate an entire bag herself.  And for the gal pal I mentioned earlier, she says they're A-OK as a tasty, healthy snack.
The latest in the Mamma Chia line is Organic Chia & Greens. These drinks combine chia seeds with veggies.  Flavors include Soulful Greens (Cayenne & Lemon), Love Greens (Beet & Ginger), Grateful Greens (Kale & Mint), and Joyful Greens (Ginger & Lemongrass).  They come in a glass bottle.
 
If you've never tried a beverage that contains chia, it may take some getting used to.  The chia seeds in the drink give it a thick, bubble-like consistency.  It's not bad; just different. 
 
The Organic Chia Squeeze pouches contain fruit with added chia seeds.  As the name implies, they come in squeezable pouches.  Available flavors include Cherry Beet, Blackberry Bliss, Green Magic, Mango Coconut, Strawberry Banana, and Wild Raspberry.
 
My favorite from the Mamma Chia line are the Organic Chia Vitality Bars.  They are available in several flavors and combine nutrient-rich chia seeds with chocolate, crunchy nuts, fruit, pecans, and other good food depending on which variety you choose.
 
 
The packages of Organic Chia Seeds are, well, chia seeds.  I've used them as additives in smoothies.
 
Mamma Chia has taken chia seeds and added them to an assortment of good-for-you foods and beverages.    It's a simple way to increase the daily intake of essential nutrients to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
Win It!

One person will win Mamma Chia assortment that includes:

Organic Chia Seeds
Organic Chia Vitality Bars
Organic Chia Squeeze
Organic Chia & Greens
Organic Chia Granola Clusters.
