Review of Drink Chia! #shakeitbaby

I read about Drink Chia! a couple of months ago and got really curious. As I tried to find it in stores on The Big Island I got a little bit disappointed and gave up the thought of trying the drink at least until next time I’d get to visit the mainland of the US. I’m not really into ordering stuff online that I haven’t had a chance of trying.

So out of curiosity I contacted Drink Chia on twitter to ask if they were planing on getting their product to Hawaii and they offered to send me some drinks to try out. So, here comes my review:

In DrinkChia you can see chia seeds floating around and they also add a little bit of texture to the drink. The chia seeds have a lot of good properties and benefit our body in many ways! To mention some of the contents of the seeds: anti-oxidants, protein, Omega-3, dietary fibers, vitamins (one drink contains 100% RDA of B6 and B12) and minerals (such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron and sodium amongst others). I’m stoked to see that I can get a lot of these important substances through drinking a tasty drink instead of having to watch my diet and/or get extra supplements!

To give you an idea of HOW full of good stuff theses seeds are, Chia seeds contain:

– three times more antioxidants than blueberries

– 25% more fiber than flax seeds

– 8 times more Omega-3 than salmon

– five times more calcium than milk

– five times more protein than kidney beans

– the double of potassium than a banana

– fifteen times more magnesium than broccoli

Pretty amazing, huh?! I could also tell you that you get all this, but the drink only contains 40 calories and 4g of sugar!

And what about the taste of the drink? Well I love it! Every time I drink DrinkChia! I feel energized and refreshed. I’ve been drinking it as a part of my post run procedure and it really leaves me feeling great. I like that the added chia seeds in the drink makes it feel like more than just a drink, almost like a meal because of the texture of the seeds in the drink. Maybe some people would find this weird, but I sure do love it..

I got one of each flavor of Drink Chia! They are:

Honeysuckle Pear

B Meyer Lemon

Strawberry Citrus

Mango Tangerine 

All the four flavors were great, they felt fresh and tasted nothing but NATURAL (don’t you just hate it when you have a drink that tastes artificial and wierd? Well, NONE of that here!) I especially love the Honeysuckle Pear and Mango Tangerine.

So what is Drink Chia good for, except for a nice refreshing drink and a good way to get some great nutritions? Well, because of the amazing contents in this drink you help your body out with hydration and keep you going throughout your day but you also help you and your body moving towards a healthier life in the long run!

I definitely think you should give this drink a try and #shakeitbaby (buy a sample pack for $2.95 + Shipping right here)! Check them out on the website, on Twitter or Facebook.

The power of EnergyBits

As I got to Seattle I had an order of EnergyBits waiting for me. And earlier today, my first morning here I was excited to get to try them out. After having almost the whole week off running due to a cold I had a hard time getting motivated and happy about my upcoming run but I have to say that the EnergyBits totally made things change.

I took 30ish of the Bits, swallowed them with a bunch of water and got dressed to go out for my run. I was amazed by the change of feeling in my body – I went from being tired and not motivated at all (you know when you start doing kind of whatever to NOT have to change into running clothes and go out for that run? Or is it just me?) to getting changed and going out on my run, feeling great! I didn’t have my usual “third-kilometre-dip”, I just felt strong and fast (OK, maybe I’m not a fast runner but I can still FEEL fast) throughout the whole run. After getting back I felt like I should probably just have kept going, I had so much energy left (even though I had done a run with a way faster pace than usual)?! But I decided to be smart, because of an upcoming race and because of the cold that I’ve been trying so hard to fight off the last couple of days..

I will continue to use these bits and I will let you know if this amazing feeling is holding on? Or maybe even getting stronger?

I was so impressed with the fast shipping and the look of the package of the EnergyBits. It felt like I got a gift! The handwritten notes and the super cute paper wrapped around the bits… It really made me happy and excited about the product. I wish more companies would go that extra mile to make a shipment actually become something special for their customers, don’t you?

More about EnergyBits:

These bits consist of 100% Spirulina algae and one bit is as little as 1 calorie. I’m not really the girl who cares that much about calories, but it is pretty great how something like this obviously can fuel me enough for a really good run, isn’t it? You can read more about the EnergyBits (and their other Bits) here.

The company behind these green little pills of food (because that’s actually what it is!) started as a result of a family member getting diagnosed with breast cancer. One of the things that can help us prevent breast cancer and help healing those already diagnosed by it (read more about this here) is an “alkaline diet”, which means the greener you eat the better. Algae is a super food!

And because of October being the pink month – Breast Cancer Awareness month – you can now get a 30% discount on the Bits until the end of the month! How great is that? I’d say give it a go!

To get the 30% discount, visit www.energybits.com, choose which product you want to try and enter the code BREASTCANCER when you check out.
