Cha Cha Cha Chi! I remember I loved these catchy commercials where you could buy a pet plant and watch it grow. Cha Cha Cha Chia! That song would be ringing in my ears day in and day out. I was recently reminded of my old chia pets when I was introduced to a phenomenal new superfood called: Chia Seeds.
I spoke with Dan Gluck, one of the creators behind “Healthy Warrior Chia Seeds”. Dan discovered the power of the Chia seed after reading about the Tarahumara Indians in the book “Born To Run”. Known for their superhuman endurance and fitness levels, the Tarahumara Indians secret source of energy was the chia seed. Out of curiosity, Dan started to add the chia seed to his diet and discovered instant results such as increased energy, digestion, focus, and endurance. Without any intention of starting a company, Dan grew a strong desire to experiment with the chia seed as a business. The business quickly took off and is still growing.
Working with a food scientist, the warrior team is experimenting with a variety of foods to add the chia seeds to. One of their most popular products is the power bars. You can take these snacks anywhere to get a quick chia fix. You can check out www.healthywarrior.com to find your favorite chia products.
I’ve added the Chia seed to my morning routine. Adding 2 tasteless tablespoons to my oatmeal gives the grains a slight crunchy texture filled with omega 3′s. Maybe it’s mind over matter, but I can definitely say that my focus and energy has consistently improved.
