Say hello to the 2012 Ellwood Thompson’s 10k team sponsored by Health Warrior chia seeds!!  ”A tablespoon of chia is like a smoothie made from salmon, spinach, and human growth hormone.  As tiny as those seeds are, they’re superpacked with omega-3s, omega-6s, protein, calcium, iron, zinc, fiber, and antioxidants.   If you had to pick just one desert-island food, you couldn’t do much better than chia, at least if you were interested in building muscle, lowering cholesterol, and reducing your risk of heart disease.  Ellwood Thompson’s sends a big THANK YOU to Health Warrior for sponsoring our team and providing an outstanding nutritional product!  Hope to see all of you out on Monument Ave. tomorrow — Stay healthy, be a warrior!
