But snacking can be healthy. I always tell all my clients to eat every 3 hours to keep their metabolism up - that means you get to snack! However, that doesn't mean you should go grab a pint of ice cream and chow down or eat a trunk load of cookies. Choose instead to fuel your body with healthful food that will nourish and energize you like Way Better Snacks.
I wish all chips were as healthy and tasty as Way Better Snacks. Their secret is in their sprouting! What does that mean? They use sprouted whole grains and seeds to make their chips wayyyy better for you!
Research has confirmed that seeds, grains and beans are outstanding nutritional food sources. What isn’t well known is, without exception, they are all difficult to digest and their nutrients are poorly absorbed. Every seed, grain and bean has natural enzyme inhibitors and barriers like phytic acid, lectins, tannins and others which are designed specifically to interfere with digestion and absorption. Bummer, right? Not if you sprout the seeds!
Sprouting creates enzymes which start the seed on its way to becoming a plant. When seeds begin to grow, the natural enzyme inhibitors that protect them from being digested are no longer present. It also reduces or eliminates all of the other antinutrients found in raw seeds. Sprouting biologically activates the seed. The plant proteins, essential fatty acids, starches and vitamins are now bioavailable for human digestion, resulting in better nutrient absorption. Hooray!
I learned the benefits of sprouting several years ago, and have since switched out my normal whole wheat bread for sprouted grain bread. I was completely overjoyed to find that I can now switch out normal whole grain snacks for Way Better Snacks!
Besides being sprouted, they use simple ingredients you know like organic sprouted quinoa, organic sprouted black beans, pure sea salt, sweet potatoes and more to create these delicious chips! They have many varieties such as: Multigrain, Sweet Potato, Black Bean, Unbeatable Blues, Sweet Chili, and No Salt to fit your cravings.
My personal favorites are their Sweet Potato and Black Bean. They are such a perfect mix of salty, crunchy and nutty! Plus, they have tons of healthy omega fats and whole grains. Besides all that goodness, they are vegan, gluten free, non GMO, low sodium, and never contain trans fat, or anything artificial. I give Way Better Snacks two thumbs up for taste and nutrition, and I am their new biggest fan!
Hopefully, you will try them out soon and become their next fan! You can find them at tons of stores near you or online.
