Chia Seeds. They are strange. Tiny seeds that, when mixed with liquid, create a gel. Dr. Oz says, “They just may be one of the healthiest things around.”
Reasons to Eat Chia Seeds:
It was my Zac who introduced me to Chia Seeds. I told him I’d try them. I did, and my first experience and thought were, “Whoa! These are so weird”. I was intrigued at how few ingredients went into making Chia Seed pudding, but I admit it was delicious.
It all made me look into why people were consuming these strange seeds. It turns out there are many good qualities.
- Reduce food cravings
- Help weight loss
- Feel full faster
- Reduce blood pressure
- Control Blood Sugar
- Omega-3–they are the richest plant source of Omega-3

Chia Squeeze Comes in 4 Delicious Flavors–A Great Way to Consume Chia Seeds
The Chia Squeeze pouches are not only convenient, but they are available in four delicious flavors:
I have tried the Blackberry Bliss–which is so far my favorite, and the Green Magic.
I was curious about what the “juice” looked like inside the pouches, so I poured some out. I was really surprised it wasn’t gelatinous like expected. It tastes like drinking a smoothie with a little bit of a crunch.
