CHIA VIE Smoothies

CHIA VIE Smoothies

Here is your chia on-the-go. The chia seeds are already ground and mixed into a fruity drink, so you can’t use the excuse that it takes too long to stir! We don't love that they use fruit concentrates to sweeten their flavors, so minus one star for the sugar. Chia is a superfood that has been long used by the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans as a staple food along with corn and beans. Chia can be used to promote weight loss as these little seeds can actually absorb 10 times their weight in water which leaves you with a “full” feeling. Chia contains a favorable, hearty-healthy ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 essential fatty acids, a perfect counterbalance to the Western diet. Chia can also help pull out excess estrogen from the body, so be mindful of your chia consumption if you are taking any hormone supplements.

We love small family farm companies like Cascadian. You can actually visit their roadside fruit stand at their family farm in the North Cascade mountains of Western Washington.

We always have them stocked in our freezer for our breakfast smoothie. Check out Cascadian's cereals, granola bars, juice concentrates and fruit spreads as well.

CalNaturale Cabernet Sauvignon

CalNaturale Cabernet Sauvignon

Dietary Needs:


From Paso Robles, CalNaturale represents high quality and sustainable winemaking. All grapes are certified organic, which means that they were never treated with pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Organic wine is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Another reason that sets organic wine apart from regular wine is that it contains less sulfites. Sulfites are salts or sulfurous acids that occur naturally in many wines. It is vary rare to find a wine that does not have sulfites, however MORE sulfites are generally added to regular wine to help in the preservation process. 100% Organic wines are made with no added sulfites. The less sulfites a wine contains, the healthier it will be for your body (and your cheeks won't be as rosy!)We love that this company has carried their sustainable farming practices all the way through to the packaging. CalNaturale comes in Tetra-Pak flexible packaging which is very eco-friendly, utilizing less than half the greenhouse gasses, waste and energy in producing and transporting our product.  We taste-tested this Cab and found it to be heavy and very full- bodied. What we really love is that the packaging has half the carbon footprint of wines in glass bottles, although we aren't sure that people will love drinking wine out of a box....might remind them of their college days.
