Salba Smart Chia ~ a Healthy New Year! (**GIVEAWAY CLOSED**)

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

This is my favorite time of year.  I love the holidays and everything that comes with it… including lots of treats!  One easy way to sneak in some added health benefits is to add some Salba chia to your products.  As easy as it is to sprinkle chia seeds on my cereal every morning, it is just as easy to sprinkle this right into recipes, whether you are making cookies, cakes and more.

It is easy to overindulge during the holidays, or have an unbalanced diet in general.  When I am going off track, it is nice to know that I can get the benefits of chia seeds even while I am baking sweets.  Chia seeds can help with the exact things that I might generally avoid about all the treats during the holidays – for instance, they can help you feel fuller, and they  have nutrients in them that you probably are not getting from cookies and cakes!

I made these Gluten-Free Banana Coconut muffins from the Salba Smart website.  These have lots of great ingredients and were quick and easy to make.  The chia seeds did not add a lot of crunch – nor did they add any noticeable textural changes.

Chia muffins

I use chia seeds every day, and I can’t tell you how many people say that they just aren’t sure how to use chia seeds.  It is so simple.  If you are hesitant about adding them to your cereal, yogurt, or drink, why not just toss in a tablespoon or two into a batch of cookies or banana bread?

    I would probably add it to my 9 grain/seed bread (that I need to make much more often), or to our breakfast smoothies.

    Salba Smart Chia looks like a nice way to get additional fiber, antioxidants, Omega 3’s, magnesium, calcium and iron in your diet. It has a mild taste and doesn’t have to be ground unless desired. It boosts nutrition and energy. I would add it when baking and sprinkle it over meats to add crunch, fiber and extra nutrition.
