Health Bloggers Community in Dublin is kicking off 2018 in style this month with a January Supper Club.
The event is being hosted in partnership with Yoga Sound System, starting with a yoga flow accompanied by live DJ and followed by a three course sit-down meal at healthy eating hot spot Good To Go. You can read more about co-founder Rachael in our interview for the Magazine here.

Based in the South East of Ireland, Chia Bia is one of Europe’s largest suppliers of chia seeds, selling in over 2000 outlets worldwide.
Chia Bia started when co-founder Barrie discovered the power of chia seeds when he suffered a back injury while on holiday in America. The seeds were recommended to him as they were known for their anti-inflammatory properties and Barrie experienced first-hand the health benefits of chia.
On coming home to Ireland and hearing the great reports people were sharing after using chia seeds, Barrie went in search of the best way to bring chia to Europe so that more people could gain from its health benefits.
