Pass the peas please!
Name of the game is fast snack on the go! Now my personal disclaimer is if you have time and are not out on the go eating raw fresh fruits and veggies is the way to go! Now after saying that I have 3 kids, work schedule, soccer and not to mention a carpool and I am a snacker. I prefer to eat healthy but in between meals I search for snacks for “on the go” instead of reaching for junk food from a fast food restaurant. My college student is also looking for healthy alternatives that does not require preparation for the dorm.
I know what your thinking but hang on! BUT – If you’re gonna snack it might as well be nutritious. These crunches are 100% Organic Peas, no wheat, gluten-free and only 7 grams of sugar. They also contain 6 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein which will help you feel full. They are only 104 calories per serving. The peas manufacture claim that the freeze-drying process maintains the enzymes and nutrients.
NOW for the real test “THE TASTE” They are very crunchy and satisfy my need to crunch. At first I thought they were bland but the more I ate the more favorable they seemed. Now for me I always like to change things up! I sprayed olive oil and added an italian seasoning on them and even my teenager loved them that way. Do put too much oil or it will make them soggy. These peas would be great added to salads or anything else you can think of.
Out of a rating from 1 -10, 10 being the best; I rate this snack a 6. My three kids rated them from a 2 -6. My youngest would not even try them. I know for me I want to feel good about what I am putting in my body and my kids need more convincing!
Happy Snacking – Share what you think!
