|Guess what time of year it is...it's almost school time again! The boys have less than two weeks now until they are back to the daily grind. Getting back into the swing of things is going to hurt this year. They stay up later than me on most nights and wake up at about 10am...ah, the life of a teenager not yet old enough to have a job.
So, my brain is already working on packing lunches. We are now a gluten free family and that means packing lunches is a must. I'm kind of lucky though, my kids are so used to thinking outside of the box with food that I can get some really nutritious snacks in them without all the lip some people probably get. This has taken time though with Jay. He was my picky eater, but now he is willing to try anything!
So, back to lunches...
Have you ever heard of Beanfields? Truthfully, I hadn't until they reached out to me to try their products. I am so glad they did! I am always on the lookout for healthy snacks and these definitely fit the bill for me and my family! The first ingredients are black beans, navy beans and long grain rice...my favorite foods all in one!
They kindly sent me the Nacho and Pico De Gallo flavors. I was actually pretty excited about these flavors since I haven't had a nacho flavored chip in years. I don't eat or buy a lot of chips because I don't really like greasy fatty chips for me or the boys. However, these chips are neither of those things!
These chips are super crispy, loaded with flavor and...
what I really love is that they are high in fiber (do your chips have this?), have a good amount of protein in them (4 grams per serving), are soy, gluten and dairy free! Even the chip connoisseurs here loved these!
They make the perfect addition to our sandwiches at lunch. This was our snack of choice at the lake on Sunday
They also make the perfect crunchy topping to our chicken chili (recipe coming soon)! These chips are a great topper for soups and don't get soggy when dipped in salsa. A chip that has all the nutritional bonuses of Beanfields
and holds up to dips makes a perfect chip in my book! You can buy them through their website
in full size and snack size bags, through Amazon or at your local health food store.
There's a bonus for you, my readers...Beanfields is offering one reader the chance to win 6 bags of their chips! All you have to do is leave a comment here telling me what you look for in a your perfect chip.
