For a Month Now I have been using Running Food. This is a Chia Seed which is the "secret" of a hidden Indian Tribe, the Tarahumara's Superathletes.
What is nice about this product is it is sold in Skaneateles, NY which isn't too far from where I live!
I bought this after tasting it at The Syracuse Iron Girl. I thought it couldn't hurt to try it to see if I can get to the "Superathlete" status!!!
Here are some of the Boasts of using Running Food:
- Richest Cource of Omega 3's
- 30 % More Antioxidents than Blueberries
- 6X More Calcium than Whole Milk
- 2X more Protein than Soy
- 25 % More Fiber than Flaxseed
-3x More Iron Than Spinach
- 50% More Folate than Esparagus
-15X more Magnesium than Broccoli
With all these claims who wouldnt want to try it??
I have tried it in smoothies, oatmeal, V8 Juice (MY FAV!!), and Yogurt. Yes it is a little gritty but it doesn't change the flavor of what you are eating so it goes down well.
I have to say, I am no superathlete yet. I do feel better about my workouts though and I feel as though my body is being cleansed fairly well if you know what I mean. I have lost 5 pounds since starting the Seeds but don't know if that is more from having a hard training month. But, It doesn't hurt to continue with it as it is a totally natural product!!!
