I was NOT compensated for this post. I received a FREE item to facilitate this review. All thoughts/opinions are my own. Your experience may differ.
I vowed that I would get healthier this year, and I knew that included using things I've never used before. I've heard of chia seeds, and have seen recipes on Pinterest, but never thought of using them myself. I just didn't know enough about them.
When I was asked if I wanted to give Salba Chia seeds a try, I wasn't so sure how it would go over with my family. You know me, I'm willing to try anything once. But my family can be picky sometimes. But I knew we need to include something new (and healthy) into our diets, so I agreed.
Salba Chia is the premium chia seed to have! Their chia seeds are considered a "nutrition powerhouse" with plenty of protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and Omega-3s. They are also super versatile, where you can use them in recipes, add to snacks mixes, or just by themselves. They are also gluten free and non-GMO certified!
So what did I think? I have never had anything like it! They don't have any flavor themselves, so when you have them as a snack, you're just eating them to the nutritional value. But they are filling! They taste wonderful in creamy peanut butter! The soak up the peanut butter flavor, and add a crunchy element, which makes for a nice peanut butter sandwich.
And they did add some nutrition to my diet, which is important, because sometimes no matter how "healthy" we eat, we just sometimes don't get the proper nutrition we need.
Salba Chia is available in pouches, boost packets (which are my favorite way to eat them as a snack), and bottles. Prices vary.
