Celebrate! SF Giants!

What an exciting month! Big CONGRATS to our SF Giants! Once Orange October wraps up tomorrow with more parties (Halloween!), we're thinking that next week may be a good time to cleanse. After the mayhem of celebrating finally comes to an end?! Are we right? Is your body ready for a break? A short, seasonal 3-Day reset?! We thought so :)

Here's a little discount to honor our Giants and our bodies!

Chia My Kitchen "Pet"

My latest evening ritual has been dropping 1-2 tbs of chia seeds into my liquid of choice before bed. Some nights decadent coconut milk, others a glass of filtered water or sometimes I settle on the perfect combo, coconut water (I like with pulp).

What awaits in the morning is the magical, natural (albeit odd gel-like) additive for my Berry Kale Smoothies. I love chia, our bodies love chia so it's no wonder that decades later, our friend ch-ch-ch-chia continues to be quite the rage.

Resembling a poppy seed in size and color, salvia hispanica, is native to Mexico and Central America. Our Aztec friends recognized the seed's ability to retain 12x its weight in water making it a stellar source of hydration for our bodies and especially clutch for endurance athletes. Moreover, chia is fibrous, offers both healthy fat and protein and is victorious for being one fo the richest vegetables sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
