Salba Smart ~ Healthy Holidays! (**GIVEAWAY**)

This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

It is so important to me to keep a health routine – which is that much more important during the holidays, between the added stress and temptations of treats.  But we also tend to be really busy, and a good portion of the holidays are spent out of town, so often my routine gets neglected.  Salba Chia makes it easier for you!

One thing that you can do for your health is to eat 1 tablespoon of Salba Chia Whole Seeds  every day.

Experts like Dr. Oz and “Biggest Loser” nutritionist Rachel Beller recommend chia seeds as a healthy way to curb appetite, so you can feel fuller for longer.  Now there’s no need for will power at the holiday party!

I notice that Salba Chia helps me with digestion especially when I am not following my regular routine.  For those days I don’t get around to eating fresh fruits and veggies as much as I would like, or when we travel and I don’t have access to my usual fresh fruit for breakfast, Salba Chia is a great part of my morning routine.

I always take my chia seeds with me when we travel.  The BOOST packets fit so easily in my bag, and they really take up no room.  Just tear off the top and sprinkle in drinks or on foods – no mess.  No packing jars, no measuring needed.  I want to feel good while we are away from home, and this is a great way to keep on track with your health goals.

Salba Smart Chia

Overeating is common during the holidays – and can be both the cause and effect of holiday stress.  Salba Chia has some great stress-busting tips for the holiday season:

  • Less is more:  The holidays are filled with tempting treats, but don’t load up on empty-calorie foods. Instead of sitting with all the food within arm’s reach, grab a (small) bowl, scoop a few treats, and give yourself that limit.
  • Get sleep!  One night of sleep deprivation is as impairing as a legally intoxicating blood-alcohol level. You have plenty of chances to drink and be merry – why give yourself the pain over sleep?
  • Don’t pack your schedule:  While there are lots of people to see and things to do, make sure you’re able to live in the moment and enjoy the time you spend with loved ones. Take time to play games with your family and friends, or just sit and chat instead of rushing to the stores.
  • Get outside:  Take a brisk walk in the fresh air, or take a drive to see the holiday lights – a quick break can invigorate mind and body, and help restore perspective!
  • Don’t forget your health:  Let’s be honest – even the tips above won’t keep you from overeating at least a little. So remember to get your key nutrients: One tablespoon of Salba Chia Whole Seeds provides 800% more Omega-3 (ALA) than salmon (EPA/DHA) and contains less than 1 g net carbohydrate per serving. It’s really that easy.
