We are Nomads Armed With Chia Pouches

This post is sponsored by Mamma Chia. Thanks for supporting this site!

Between moving, the housing fiasco, kids starting school, and acclimating to a new city, my family has essentially become nomadic. We are ALWAYS in the car – driving to school, racing to an appointment, getting lost (this city is not how I remembered!), or on the way to meet up with family and friends. (Also, let’s be honest, we aren’t that pumped about spending time on top of each other in our current living situation.)

I’ve become Queen of Snacks over the past few weeks (let’s be honest, aren’t all moms designated with this title?), but since I’m in the car all the livelong day and my children devour snacks with no regard to their surrounding environment, I’ve nixed the messier ones. Mamma Chia to the rescue!


These are the contents of my purse minus 8,230 receipts that I removed for the sake of prettiness. My wallet, my phone, my Invisalign bag, a small pouch of my must-have essential oils, lippies and lotion, and mah chia pouches.

Awwww yeahhhh, mama loves herself some chia seeds, and now I’ve got my entire family on the bandwagon, thanks to these yummy pouches. The organic Chia Squeezes are damn tasty, and my kids love them. Not to mention that we get half the recommended amount of brain-boosting Omega-3s (1200 mg) in a serving. I’ve tried several different types of fish oil supplements with my kids to no avail, so I can’t tell you how pumped I am that they love these. Plus, these pouches are perfect for school lunches!

Also, I have to say – I really love Mamma Chia’s founder Janie Hoffman’s personal story. She is passionate about what chia seeds have done for her in regards to her battle with longstanding autoimmune disorders. Once she incorporated chia into her daily diet, there was a very noticeable increase in her vitality, energy and strength.

Another favorite? The Mamma Chia Vitality Beverages that contain organic chia seeds infused with organic fruit juice. Perfect for pre and post workouts, they have tons of fiber and protein. These are yummy as well, but the pouches are the true apple of my eye. (Speaking of, the Apple Cinnamon pouch is a Whoorl family favorite.)

    I’ve been looking for a way to boost my son’s omega-3’s and not requiring a spoon, so this is perfect! Thanks for the tip!

    My favorite fruit would have to be apples. I love a good cold, crisp delectable apple. I try to eat one everyday on my way home from work :)

    OMG, the pouches are just what I’ve been looking for! My daughter just started middle school -???? – and they eat lunch at 10:30! This would be a great quick snack when she gets home from school. I’ll be on the look out for these!

    I have not had these yet, concerned I might not like the texture, seems like it will feel really thick and chunky going down! Love peaches.
