Mamma Chia Giveaway!

Did anyone else have a chia pet growing up?

They were pretty much the “it thing” when I was in elementary school. Except if I remember correctly, I couldn’t keep one alive to save my life.

Well, chia has made a huge comeback! Except not in the form of pets … more like food. Winking smile

Chia seed has some really awesome health benefits. It’s one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world.

Chia seed has:

  • 8x more omega-3 than salmon
  • 25% more fiber than flax seed
  • 30% more antioxidants than blueberries
  • 6x more iron than kidney beans
  • 5x more folate than spinach
  • 2x more potassium than bananas
  • 70% more protein than soy beans
  • 6x more calcium than milk
  • 15x more magnesium than broccoli

Um yeah, I’d say you probably want to get your hands on this stuff.

Mamma Chia is an awesome company that has made it easier than ever to get chia seed in your diet. Their chia seed, along with all of their products, are organic and are made with high quality ingredients.

They were generous enough to send me some samples of their products to try out and share with you.

First up, these great little squeeze pouches. They are so convenient, yummy, and packed with nutrients. Not only do they pack a chia punch, but they include tons of vitamins and minerals in the form of fruit and vegetables.

They come in six flavors: mango coconut, wild raspberry, blackberry bliss, apple cinnamon, strawberry banana, and green magic. So far, I’ve tried mango coconut and blackberry bliss – both of which are winners in my book.

Hunter loves them too. In fact, he gets giddy and kicks his legs all crazy when I pull one out. I think he sucked this one down in about five seconds flat.

And then there’s the chia seed. It comes in two varieties – organic black chia and organic white chia. To be honest, I can’t really taste a difference between the two. I sprinkle them on everything and anything I can think of – cereal, smoothies, yogurt, toast, oatmeal, salad, you name it! Just ONE tablespoon packs in 2,430 mg of omega-3s, 4 grams of fiber, 3 grams of complete protein, and is only 60 calories.

Last but not least, there’s the Mamma Chia Organic Vitality Beverages. They are nutrient-rich drinks that include chia seeds infused with organic fruit juices making it a refreshing and yummy drink. I was a little unsure how I’d feel about the texture of these drinks, but I thought the chia seed was kind of a fun addition! Not to mention they’re packed with nutrition – they contain more than an entire day’s worth of omega-3, 25% of your daily fiber, 4 grams complete protein, 95 mg of calcium, powerful antioxidants, and valuable minerals. You can’t really beat that in a drink!

Along with all the yummy products, I was also sent Chia Vitality – a book by Janie Hoffman, founder and CEO of Mamma Chia.

    Have never tried the seeds because they’re not available where I live..hope to include them someday in my smoothies, cakes and oatmeal

  2. Jessica says

    I mix Chia seeds into my oatmeal in the morning. I also mix them into plain Greek yogurt. I don’t eat fish so I love that Chia seeds deliver some omega 3s!

  3. Alli S. says

    I actually have never tried chia seeds before. They are kind of spendy and I am always nervous I wouldn’t like them. Great giveaway! :)

  4. Kristen says

    I love chia seeds! I add them to yogurt, oatmeal, and smoothies and sprinkle them on waffles, bagels and cereal.

  5. says

    I love them as sprinkles on top of my yogurt! And I definitely also had trouble keeping my chia pet alive, and my tamagotchi…oh toys oft he 90s!

  6. Staci says

    I love the Kombucha drinks with chia seeds but they are so expensive that they are only an occasional treat!

  7. says

    I actually have tried one of their drinks it was Guava something and it was GOOD! I gave some to the kiddo (we don’t do any juice with him) and he absolutely loved it too. It was slightly weird getting the bits of chia, but overall a really good drink.

  8. Lynn says

    I have been putting a chia flax blend into my after work smoothies to try and get some extra good stuff for my baby which is due in August.

  9. Mallory says

    I LOVE chia seeds in yogurt and overnight oats, but I’ve never tried them in anything else. I need to branch out a bit!

  10. Nicole says

    I’ve never tried chia seeds before. I see them in a bunch of recipes for Overnight Oats (helping make the mixture more thick), but I haven’t gotten to the store to buy them!

  11. Tiffany S. says

    I’m eating chia pudding right now! The best combination I’ve had is 1/2 vanilla almond milk, 1/2 chocolate almond milk, almond butter, brewed coffee, vanilla, maple syrup, salt – delicious as dessert!

  12. Ramona Dutton says

    I have always wondered about chia seeds, but have been afraid to buy a whole bag and not know how to use them well. I’m trying to get more omega-3 and nutrients into my diet – I’m amazed that these little guys are packed with so much goodness!

  13. says

    My ‘go to’ is normally adding chia to either oatmeal or smoothies, but I totally need to use it in a more versatile way — like homemade jams more often!!

    I think Nia would like those squeeze packs too, but like you, I don’t know how I feel about chia in a drink because of the texture. It was a little too much for me! haha

  14. Kaitlyn says

    I looooooove chia seeds. I have been eating them for a few years. I add them to smoothies to thicken them up and add a nutritional punch, or I sprinkle them on some Ezekiel toast with pb + banana. Seriously SO delicious. I can’t get enough!

  15. Jenny says

    I’ve tried one flavor of the drinks and have a bag of raw chia seeds that I will occasionally add to smoothies.

  16. says

    I love the Mamma Chia drinks! I used to get them nearly every afternoon for a pick-me-up. Now the store’s a bit far for a daily trip, but I find them when I can.

  17. Alaina says

    Oh my gosh! I would LOVE to try the chia seeds and learn more about it! I have always wanted to try them, but never have been able to spend the money to try it for fear I wouldn’t like it. However, if I tried it and loved it, I would be willing to drop some major bucks!

  18. Kelsey says

    I love chia seeds! I mix 2 T into my oatmeal or into my overnight oats (they give overnight oats a really cool texture) or sprinkle them on toast with almond butter and some sliced banana!

  19. Kelsey says

    I love love love the addition of chia seeds to almost anything! Especially oatmeal and smoothies! But I have a hard time finding them at stores near me!

  20. Caitlin Elliott says

    I love to mix chia seeds into tuna salads for an extra crunch (and obviously for the added nutrition!)

  21. stacey says

    Oooh, I love chia seeds! I put them in whatever I can: smoothies, peanut butter, pudding, on fruit, etc.

  22. Amanda N says

    I actually tried some of Mamma Chias products at the Boston Marathon expo and they were pretty good. It was my first time trying chia seeds – I’d be interested in learning more and adding them to my “diet.”

  23. Janette H. says

    I enjoy Health Warrior Chia Bars if I need a quick pick me up throughout the day. I love the acai berry!

  24. Shaina says

    Love chia! Toast, almond butter, banana and chia drizzled with honey is the best breakfast ever! Love chia in smoothies too!
