Giveaway: Chia Seed Goodies from Health Warrior

Facebook Twitter Pinterest Plusone






chia seeds

The kind folks at Health Warrior are launching a line of chia seed energy bars, and they’re offering up three awesome packages of goodies for some lucky Eat Drink Better readers!

We’ve talked before about the health benefits of chia seeds, and you guys even chimed in with some chia seed recipes and tips of your own!

I’m always wary of health products, especially ones surrounding so-called superfoods, so before working with Health Warrior, I asked to see an ingredients list for the bars. Here it is, for your perusal:

chia seeds, organic oats, brown rice syrup, organic peanut butter, organic whole grain brown rice crisps, organic agave syrup, brown rice syrup solids, natural peanut extract, organic cocoa powder, peanut flour, organic vanilla extract, sea salt

Not shabby, right? A little bit sugary, maybe, but as snack bars go, these are free of mystery ingredients and look pretty healthy. Read on for some deets about Health Warrior and how to win!

    Sounds like a great idea for a new product.

  • http://Web Brian

    I would love to be introduced to this product by winning all three! I am 44 and training for my first 5K race and I believe that the Chia seeds would be a great addition to my diet. Thanks!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Thebadbadkitty Joanne Nielsen

    I have yet to try Chia seeds this would be a nice way to find out if I like them.

  • http://Web Deena

    It would be fun to try some more chia seed recipes. :)

  • http://Web Lisa Spero

    I just started learning about chia seeds. I had some in a dish at a raw food potluck that I went to for the first time. Love to have some and I do like healthy snack bars.

  • http://Web Amelia

    I love chia seeds and use them basically every day! They’re the perfect food with all of the good fats etc. Looooove them. :)

    I have just started to find and do research on HEALTHY FOOD and this seems to do the trick!

    I have read a lot about how good chia seeds are for you, but have never tried them. This would give me an opportunity to see what all the hype is about.

    I’ve been using chia nsince before it was “in.” I have slowly but surely gotten many of my friends to use chia, and even those who scoffed and guffawed at my claims are not concerts. It’s almost like I have my own Cult of Chia. I’ve always been an FB fan of Health Warrior for quite a while.

  • http://Web Bobbie

    I am training for 2 half marathon’s and would really love to try this product to help with hydration. I am walking the Disneyland half marathon in a couple of weeks and the weather is usually very warm so hydration is key. I am also always looking at ways to add healthy fiber to my diet to help with IBS.

  • http://Web Douglas Hopple

    Hi! I am training for the Tough Mudder event in Arizona. I have never run this far before and I am sure that with alot of hard work and the power of chia seeds that I will accomplish my goal. Have a wonderful day!

  • http://Web Michael

    I have recently just started enjoying Chia seeds. I would love to win to help me train for the tough mudder in FEB.

  • http://Web Amy

    My husband and I rely on chia seeds to supplement our running endurance and are always looking for new ways to incorporate them in our diets.

  • http://Web Sarah

    I have seen so many breakfast bakes and other recipes on so many blogs using chia seeds! Would love to be the lucky recipient of these! Thanks and keep up the great work!

  • http://Web Caroline Collins

    I’d like to win because chia seeds have jumpstarted my fitness level, allowing me to work harder in the weight room, on my bike, and on the running trails. I’m already so much stronger and more energetic, after just a few weeks!

  • http://www.blessedblogger.com BlessedBlogger

    I see articles about how healthy chia seeds are but I never know what to do with them. I just tried some in some gluten free bread and really liked them. Since we just started a new workout regime this would be a great post-workout snack.

    I am always recommending chia seeds to people. It is one of the best foods possible to control diabetes. I started my mom with chia seeds last year for the two weeks that I was with her and her blood sugar stabilized! But I know that chia seeds are not just for people with diabetes, the health benefits are awesome for anyone. This giveaway is terrific because you are giving away bars with peanut butter and chocolate, can’t get better than that for energy and taste!

  • http://Web Allyson M

    I am a 4’11″,overweight, female and sick of it. In the last year I have had 2 of my sons deployed to a war zone. With one more son joining the Air Force last November, and my last ready to join as well. Needless to say I need some intervention. With all of my sons out of the house and not in reach, I am ready to put myself first. I have started juicing last Friday, and feel fabulous. I would love to lose some weight though. Its day #4 of juicing and nothing has come off. I am committed to my health. My boys need me to be healthy, and active to keep up with them. I would love to win this package to learn more about healthy snacks and foods to keep me going. Thanks for this opportunity.

    I would use the prize as a snack at one of our rest stops at our charities annual bike ride in October. We raise money to buy bikes for students in school to get to after school activities, saturday tutorials, sports programs or just for fun! They have to do well in school to “earn’ their bicycles. We hope to gie away 10,000 this December right before Christmas – many of the children do not get a gift so this is a really prized bike, they earn it and it is a gift at christmas.

    Having some healthy snacks around (that I didn’t need to make myself) would be great, and I’d love the opportunity to try out some chia seed.

  • http://Web Lisa

    Working in a high school, I see many students come to school with a caffeine energy drink for breakfast. I have been discussing nutrition with the students who are receptive, and a few times last year gave students with no breakfast something from my lunch to get them through the morning. I would love to win the bars, both for myself and family, and to share with the students at school. Thanks for listening!

  • http://Web Lizzie Partidge

    I live in Japan and want to organize a charity running event after summer, for the tsunami affected regions. An awesome energizing product like chia will be a great supplement for those on the day. I discovered chia recently but it’s so hard to buy in Japan. Please let us know if Health Warrior delivers internationally!! Thanks, Liz :)

  • http://Web Elizabeth

    I’ve found that Chia Seeds are a great source of nutrients and I think the mission of Health Warrior is great. I would love to try their products and let others know how much I enjoy them!

    It’d be great to pick up some extra chia products. I eat the little buggers every day, so the more, the merrier!

    Chia seeds are new to me; looking forward to experimenting with them.

  • http://www.stretchjeanincident.com Tamara at The Stretch Jean Incident

    I’ve tried chia seeds in the past, but I’d love to win so I could try experimenting with using them in baking more. And of course, I’d LOVE to try the chia bars; sounds like a great, filling snack!

  • http://Web jacki

    I’d love to win because I love to try different healthy foods to keep my body healthy

  • http://Web Danny Dunworth

    I have been using chia seeds in my smoothies for several years. I am vegan and really am selective about my snacks, so the bars would be a great snack for me. I would also share them with my friends and family!

  • http://Web Leigh Maijala

    I have never tried chia seeds, but would love to. I keep hearing about their health benefits, and being gluten free as well as vegan I have a hard time finding sources of protein, fiber, and add-ins for my soups, salads, and smoothies.
    I have hemp seed protein at home, but it’s not cutting it anymore. I would love a chance to try something new, as being a student doesn’t allow me free spending to try something like this. Thank you!
