Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Peanut Butter Theme Week.

Health Warrior (Richmond, VA) products include chia seeds and chia bars/snack foods, including today's Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Bar.

The chocolate and peanut butter flavors were subtle. It was a great bar for a hike. Not too sweet, but satisfying and natural tasting. One bar at lunch helped power a hike up Ring Mountain (Tiburon, CA) this afternoon to see the Miwok Indian Petroglyphs. Thanks Health Warrior founders (Dan Gluck, Nick Morris, and co.).

Little chia seeds are naturally nutrient dense -- offering a good source of protein and fiber, antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids. (This small bar contained roughly 1,000 mg of Omega-3s.)

Chia seeds have been enjoyed by humans, as far back as 3,500 years ago) -- and, by inference, Aztec warriors. Today's health and fitness "warriors" might also benefit.

Those Chia Pets* and heads are great fun, but chia seeds are also a great healthy food. Maybe there needs to be a "chia warrior?"

*What are Chia Pets? Joseph Enterprises, Inc. (San Francisco, CA) created them and still sells them. These figurines made their debut in 1977. Moistened chia seeds are spread on small, animal or head-shaped terracotta figures. And if watered and cared for properly the seeds sprout and grow "fur" or "hair." (The company also sells chia seeds for consumption.)
