Salba Smart Review & Giveaway!

by Her Happy Balance on August 7, 2013

I think it is fair to say that the benefits of chia seeds are becoming very well known. Many people are adding them to their smoothies, and recently I tried my hand at making strawberry chia pudding. Both of those ways are great to get in your serving of Omega 3′s, but wouldn’t it be cool if we could take in chia without even noticing it was there? Enter Salba Smart

The kind people at Salba Smart generously sent me a bag of their organic yellow corn tortilla chips, organic white corn tortilla chips, a jar of their medium salsa, and a box of their packets of ground chia seed to try out.

Okay, first things, their salsa is freakin’ delicious! I mean it blows your normal jarred Ortega or Chi Chi’s salsa out of the water. It tastes really fresh, and the jar did not last long! Plus, all of their products are made with organic, Non-GMO, and gluten-free ingredients. I was able to easily pronounce every ingredient on the back of both the chip and salsa nutritional labels. And of course, everything is loaded with chia seeds so you are taking in anywhere from 160mg (serving of salsa) to 300mg (serving of tortilla chips) of Omega-3 fatty acids. Oh yeah, and the chips have 4g of fiber and 2g of protein per serving. Yeah…imma eat that. I recently made taco salads for dinner one night and instead of using salad dressing, I opted for the chia salsa. The tortilla chips were a great crouton substitute, too.

And it was really nice to have individual packets of ground chia seed servings ready to go. I had been bringing a ziplock baggie of chia seeds in my lunch bag to work and occasionally the seeds would spill into the bottom of my bag which was never fun. With the individual servings, you just rip the top off, pour on your food, and dispose of the wrapper. Ahh, sweet convenience.

And because the people at Salba Smart are so nice, one lucky HHB reader has the opportunity to receive a package of Salba Smart goodies like the one I received…just enter below! :)

Chia seeds and chips/salsa are some of my favorite food items! I would love to try these. I have chia seeds every day either sprinkled on toast or in smoothies.

Look at you with all this cool stuff!! I don’t eat Chia seeds as much as I should – especially since they have a minimal taste. And girl, I think you learned when you were down here after the very first night – nothing is complete without salsa! And chips that have those kinds of stats? Well I’m in too, and imma eat that with you!!!
Also your salad looks impeccable and I would like one right now. So hopefully I can win this, but if not, I’m going to get their salsa based on your rec! <3 Love you bloggy besty happy Wednesday!

To be honest– I don’t incorporate chia into my diet at all right now! That’s one health superfood that I have yet to try; so of course I’d love to give them a try!
