Surviving Those Manic Mondays with Mamma Chia (GIVEAWAY)

Mondays are classically the worst day of the week. This semester my Mondays are especially tedious – I leave home before most people in my house are awake, and I arrive home when everybody is getting ready to sleep. Keeping my energy levels up and not crashing during these sort of days is a challenge. I do my best to avoid the allure of vending machine snacks, but the best way to keep from temptation is keeping an alternative snack on hand. My favorite is the Mamma Chia squeeze pouches. I’ve been buying them, along with the chia beverages, for ages and found out that they’ve recently added some exciting new options to their lineup.

Mamma Chia Coconut Mango

The chia squeeze comes in 6 different flavors, of course I have my hardcore favorites. Each pouch contains omega-3s, protein, and fiber. Available flavors include: Blackberry Bliss, Cherry Beet, Green Magic, Mango Coconut, Strawberry Banana, and Wild Raspberry. Of the six, my favorites are Cherry Beet, Mango Coconut, and Strawberry Banana. The Cherry Beet one is insanely good, I wish my local BJs stocked this flavor because I would just buy boxes and boxes of this one. The great thing is that the Mamma Chia squeeze does not require refrigeration, and tastes just as good cold or room temperature. This means that I can enjoy it at the start of my day all the way to on the commute home at the end of my day!

I was not familiar with Mamma Chia’s new granola clusters until recently and I was so excited when I found out. I feel like I’ve been on a ton of health blogs, vlogs, and instagrams that feature yogurt as a breakfast. But personally, I cannot just have a yogurt and a couple of berries or I end up feeling completely unsatisfied. I need the texture and chewing, so I often turn to chia, granola, or flax seed. Mamma Chia’s granola clusters offer more flavorful options like Wild Blueberry Clusters, Vanilla Almond Clusters, Cinnamon Pecan Clusters, and Honey & Oats Clusters. Each serving is choc-full of omega-3s and 10g of soy and dairy free protein. My favorite? It’s a tie between the Wild Blueberry Clusters and the Cinnamon Pecan Clusters for sure.

I have long been a massive fan of the Mamma Chia Organic Vitality Beverages. I will literally talk about them to anyone who will listen. I get questions about them all the time. Basically, the big deal is that in each bottle you get 4g of protein, 95mg of calcium, 25% of your dietary fiber, and your entire days worth of Omega-3s (2500mg). Some days are so busy or stressful that I can’t sit down to eat an entire meal, so I’m always glad when I have one of these drinks on hand. They don’t necessarily make me feel really full, but they definitely pick me up and help me make sure that I’m not running on empty. They come in these flavors: Blackberry Hibiscus, Cherry Lime, Coconut Mango, Cranberry Lemonade, Guava Mamma, Raspberry Passion, and Strawberry Lemonade. I don’t even have a favorite here, they’re all good. But if I had to choose… I’d say Coconut Mango. It’s so refreshing and not overly sweet.

Mamma Chia have also released new Organic Chia Seed Energy drinks. In the flavors Blackberry Blast, Cherry Charge, Grape Power, and Raspberry Razz, these buzzing beverages not only off the same 2500mg of Omega-3s as the regular chia drink, but also 95mg of caffeine (about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee), as well as fiber and protein. If you click through the product details on the Mamma Chia website, you can score a $0.55 off coupon and give these a try!
