Salba Chia Seeds Review and Giveaway!

Full Disclosure:  I received Salba Chia Seed samples to use for my review.  No compensation was provided and as always, I will give my honest opinion about the product.

From Doctor Oz to Women’s Health Magazine to Food & Wine Magazine, chia seeds have been the most talked about superfood of the new year.  So what are they exactly and why are they so super?

Salba Chia Seeds

Well to start, Chia means “strength” in the Mayan language and Aztec warriors used to consume a diet full of chia seeds as it gave them energy boosts and increased endurance.  These little powerhouse seeds are considered “super” because they deliver the maximum amount of nutrients with minimal calories. Chia seeds are packed with fiber, calcium, omega fatty acids, magnesium, and antioxidants and can be consumed in a variety of ways, both whole and ground.  No wonder they were so popular!

Ever since I met my weight loss goals I have made chia seeds a staple in my diet.  Every morning they are added to my juices, smoothies, and/or eggs and they help keep me going all day long.  I was SUPER excited when Salba offered to send me a sample of their “Smarter Than Your Average Chia” seeds in both whole and premium ground as I am already a huge fan.  But here’s what I didn’t know:
