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! 🙂
