I am all about healthy snacking. Years ago I labeled snacking as “bad”, but that was most likely due to years of struggling with my eating disorder and not fully understanding that our bodies need to be fueled to work efficiently and have energy to make it through the day. Now that I understand this, I am always on the lookout for fun, healthy snacks to keep my energy levels up.
Mamma Chia has a brand new portable snack that fits the bill of a healthy snack: Chia Squeeze!

Chia Squeeze Vitality Snack is available in four different varieties:
Chia Squeeze combines chia + fruit + vegetables, is gluten-free and vegan, has 1200mg Omega-3, has no added sugar and is a good source of fiber – all for only 70 calories! I was a little unsure about these snacks, but I ended up loving them! I prefer to eat them cold, but they are delicious warm, too! What a great snack to keep on hand in your gym bag or purse for a quick pick-me-up.
