We Started Seed-Snacking

Since I started on a milk-free diet, I noticed I have been eating a lot more healthy foods. I used to eat a lot of sweets, desserts and pastries but not anymore! Okay maybe less and those that do not contain dairy. LOL. But I tell you, I have never been this open in trying new foods and I think it's a blessing in disguise.

From time to time, I crave for sweet treats though and I guess it's just normal. I don't grab ice creams and cakes anymore, I am leaned towards eating fruits, nuts and seeds! Yes, seeds! Besides the pumpkin, squash and watermelon seeds, I've added something into my diet ~ chia seeds! I've heard a about how good it is for the body and you too can read about the chia magic. That's one reason I was curious in trying it out. Also, I never realized there's a lot of things that can be done with it. It even comes in a pouch now which is perfect for snacking.
Mamma Chia - Chia Squeeze
Don't let the packaging fool you, I believe it's not just for kids. Those Chia Squeeze are also great for adults! Me and my husband tried them as well. And good thing they left me with a pouch. My 4-year old liked it so much that she ate three (3) pouches in one day! I hope it's not too much for her body to take. Oh well, it's done and nothing happened so I guess we're good.
My husband's take on Mamma Chia - Chia Squeeze!Definitely great for toddlers!
I thought about the trick or treat approaching and we haven't been to the store to buy candies yet. Just the other day, I saw some oranges turned into pumpkin faces and I really loved the idea. I just don't love the fact that it looks cute but the the thing is, you are serving fruits which are a lot better than candies! So I thought, maybe it's better to give out snack pouches like the Mamma Chia Chia Squeeze! They come in six (6) different flavors [Cherry Beet, Blackberry Bliss, Green Magic, Mango Coconut, Strawberry Banana and Wild Raspberry] so the kids can choose their favorite! My daughter's favorite is the Strawberry Banana, I guess it's already a given.
 How about you, what do you plan to give this 31st? Have you tried chia seeds?

I was provided samples of the product mentioned above but everything was based on my honest opinion.

  1. This is definitely a great alternative to the traditional candy approach. Still something sealed and safe for parents to feel good about but also fun flavors and something the kids will enjoy as well!
