Personal Opinion:

 

Like with any foundation there are pros and cons which I have listed above. I have difficulty with dry skin, and when I applied this foundation it seemed to stick and clump on my dry skin. However, I do like the fact that this foundation is light weight and when I wear it I can hardly even feel it on my face. The fact that there is little coverage does bother me, I like full coverage foundation with a matte finish, but that’s just me. Just because this foundation did not work for me does not mean that it won’t work for you. I would give this foundation a 3 out of 5-star review.

What is Chia?

Salvia hispanica, commonly known as chia, is a species of flowering plant in the mint family, Lamiaceae, native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. The 16th-century Codex Mendoza provides evidence that it was cultivated by the Aztec in pre-Columbian times; economic historians have suggested it was as important as maize as a food crop. Ground or whole chia seeds are still used in Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina, Mexico and Guatemala for nutritious drinks and as a food source.

Chia is grown commercially for its seed, a food that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, since the seeds yield 25–30% extractable oil, including α-linolenic acid (ALA). Of total fat, the composition of the oil can be 55% ω-3, 18% ω-6, 6% ω-9, and 10% saturated fat

Chia seeds are typically small ovals with a diameter of about 1 mm (0.039 in). They are mottle-colored with brown, gray, black and white. The seeds are hydrophilic, absorbing up to 12 times their weight in liquid when soaked. While soaking, the seeds develop a mucilaginous gel-like coating that gives chia-based beverages a distinctive texture.

Chia seed is traditionally consumed in Mexico, and the southwestern United States, but is not widely known in Europe. Chia (or chian or chien) has mostly been identified as Salvia hispanica L. Today, chia is grown commercially in its native Mexico, and in Bolivia, Argentina, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Australia. In 2008, Australia was the world’s largest producer of chia. A similar species, Salvia columbariae or golden chia, is used in the same way but is not grown commercially for food. Salvia hispanica seed is marketed most often under its common name “chia”, but also under several trademarks.” This information was obtained at

Personal Opinion:
Personally, I love this book! I have not had a chance to get any chia seeds but I am wanting to do this diet. These recipes look so delicious, being someone who loves to cook and try new things this is a great addition to the book. Also the Yoga looks really amazing, I’m new to yoga but seem to enjoy the yoga in this book. I give it a five of five stars, and I recommended it to anyone who wants to eat healthier or if you want to learn about this amazing super food.

About the Translation
“The New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) is an English translation of the Christian Bible. Translated by the International Bible Society (now Biblica) following a similar philosophy as the New International Version (NIV), but written in a simpler form of English, the NIrV seeks to make the Bible more accessible for children and people who have difficulty reading English, such as non-native English speakers. The authors describe it as a special edition of the NIV written at a third grade reading level.
Here is a comparison of a passage in the King James Version, the New International Version, and the New International Reader’s Version:

KJV: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” (1 Timothy 3:16, KJV)
NIV: “Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.” (1 Timothy 3:16, NIV)
NIrV: “There is no doubt that godliness is a great mystery. Jesus appeared in a body. The Holy Spirit proved that he was the Son of God. He was seen by angels. He was preached among the nations. People in the world believed in him. He was taken up to heaven in glory.” (1 Timothy 3:16, NIrV)”
