I have to admit a few years ago when my older sister first started talking about how great chia seeds were for you I probably rolled my eyes and shrugged it off. All I could think of was chia pets, you wouldn't want to eat that would you. Seriously. Fast forward to now and once again my know it all older sister is right I must concede (you are welcome sister). I now keep chia seeds in my pantry all the time and eat it almost daily.
I had tried some of Mamma Chia's beverages before so I was excited to work with them for this. Lets talk first about Mamma Chia. Mamma Chia was founded by Jane Hoffman in 2009 and is a eco conscious company. Jane recognized the potential of chia back when I was still trying to grow it on a clay pig for my kids.
Jane suffered from multiple auto-immune diseases for more than a decade and after only 3 months of consuming chia daily she was symptom free. She was so sold on the benefits of chia she started putting it in everything she cooked and was soon selling chia fruit drinks in stores across the nation. She tells her story in her book Chia Vitality which also outlines a comprehensive 30 day approach to well being that includes yoga, healthy eating and feeling more alive than ever before.
