Jamba Juice Has Chia Seeds!

Imagine my delight when I walked into Jamba Juice for an afternoon pick-me-up and I notice a brightly decorated little sign that says, NEW right next to the words Chia Seeds!
I have been a huge fan and supporter of chia seeds ever since I discovered how easy it is to add such a massive amount of nutrients in one meal or snack.
Chia seeds are inexpensive, tasteless little power packed seeds that expand 9 times their original size in liquid so they fill you up faster and give you good fuel to burn from.
These amazing little seeds are loaded with:
  • iron
  • protein
  • more antioxidants that blueberries
  • more omega-3 and omega-6 than flax seed or salmon 
  • and more fiber than black beans
There aren't many single foods that carry that many benefits.
Whether you go to Jamba Juice for the taste or nutrition or both, try some chia seeds in your next smoothie and feel the difference!
