Vanilla Bean Chia Pod- Gluten-free, Vegan and FUN

Eliminating gluten, dairy, soy, corn, caffeine, wine AND sugar for 28 days.  Why? Because two of my dearest friends convinced me it would be cleansing and FUN.  It's been 3 days now, and I realized I have an addiction.  NO, it's NOT wine!  It's SUGAR.  Now I understand why people say it's more addicting than crack.  

So there I was, browsing through Huckleberry's today trying to find SOMETHING to satisfy my sweet-tooth and I came across a gluten-free, vegan, NON-GMO Certified, refrigerated treat.  

Even better, is that it included 3g of Omega 3 and 5g of fiber (20%DV).  Okay.. decided to give it a try.

S.A.F.E. Product Review

ChiaPods

Each of these 'PODS' contain 100% of your daily recommended intake of Omega 3 and 25% of your fiber.  Not ONLY are chia seeds abundant with these nutrients as well as OTHER vitamins and nutrients, but they are totally digestible in their natural, untouched form. 

These pods remind me of rice pudding with tiny fish eggs that you can ‘squoosh’ between your teeth.  Fortunately, they taste a LOT better and their unusual texture is quite addicting. 

Banana, mango, blueberry and 4 other varieties?  Who knew a purely vegetarian protein source complete with 8 amino acids could be so healthy, tasty and FUN to eat.
