Snacking with Salba Chia (**GIVEAWAY*)

 

This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

I am not as resilient as I used to be, and I am very aware of the after-effects of eating junk food.  I try to avoid it or eat in moderation, but I have come to know what to expect from unhealthy snacks.  There is a price to pay for all those undesirable ingredients like MSG, high sodium, artificial colors, preservatives, GMOs, and more.  Whether it is some indulging at a birthday party or maybe a recent Superbowl party, I’m sure a lot of you can relate.

Salba Smart offers both chia seeds that you can get creative with – or you can buy Salba Smart chips and salsa, which are a simple combination of natural ingredients including chia seeds.

Salba Smart Yellow Tortilla ChipsThe yellow corn tortilla chips contain: Stone ground organically grown yellow corn, organic expeller pressed sunflower and/or organic expeller pressed safflower oil, Organic Salba (chia seed), water, and sea salt.

The chips and salsa are healthy on their own – plus the added benefits that chia seeds bring, which take them to a whole other level!  The chips and salsa are loaded with these little seeds, but you wouldn’t even notice that they are there.  The chia seeds don’t effect the taste or texture, other than maybe to add an extra little crunch.

Salba Smart Chia Tortilla Chips Salsa

My kids are a fan of the tortilla chips, which I am thrilled about.  I don’t want them eating GMOs and all the other junk you find in most chips.  And each serving of Salba Smart tortilla chips has 300mg of Omega-3 Fatty Acids!  Something I appreciate especially since my girls are vegetarian.

Salba Smart Chia Chips

Get creative with salba chia seeds, adding a healthy kick and some crunch to your average foods, snacks, and more.  It is just as easy as adding chia to your favorites.
