Chia seeds aren’t just for growing a fuzzy green pet — or getting that annoying jingle stuck in your head. This small, nutty seed is gaining popularity thanks to its long list of nutrients. Full of fiber, protein and antioxidants, chia seeds are the perfect way to start your morning on the right foot. Toss them in to yogurt, bake them in to muffins or add a handful to thicken up smoothies.
Constantly on-the-go? Health Warrior‘s chia seed bars in coconut, acai berry and chocolate peanut butter make getting in a pre-workout snack as easy as tearing open a wrapper. Move over protein and granola bars, there’s a new snack bar in town.
You can buy your own Health Warrior Chia Bars or enter in the comments for a chance to win a 15-pack of bars, plus a 16-ounce bag of chia seeds. Just let us know, in the comments, why you love chia seeds. The contest starts at 10:00 a.m. EST today, and ends on Friday, April 20 at 5 p.m. EST.
