It is increasingly hard to find a snack that not only is for you but tastes good - a challenge unto itself - but will keep you satiated long enough that an hour later, your not scrounging around the fridge or your desk drawers looking for something else to eat.
That's why I like to keep I Heart Keenwah on hand.
These quinoa squares are pretty healthy for a slightly sweet treat (you'll know the ingredients listed), and crunchy, so you get that satisfying chew, which I really need, especially around the 3 pm mark when it's right in between lunch and dinner.
There are 4 flavours available - almond, cranberry cashew, ginger peanut, and chocolate sea salt - so there's no getting bored or feeling deprived. All natural and gluten free, you can finally give into your cravings, without feeling guilty. Nibbling on this ancient grain is much better than giving into a chocolate bar or a bag of chips. Did you know that quinoa is a complete source of protein? So you'll be satisfied way longer than those rice cakes you've been snarfing back . Check out the great ingredients of the Chocolate Sea Salt flavour:
Quinoa (whole grain quinoa, quinoa flakes, quinoa crisps), almonds, tapioca syrup, dried cane syrup, honey, organic dark chocolate (organic dried cane syrup, organic chocolate liquor, organic cocoa butter, organic soy lecithin (emulsifier), organic vanilla), almond oil, baking soda and salt.
Quinoa has so much going for it - it contains all nine essential amino acids, is gluten-free, low-glycemic, high in fiber and packed full of fiber, magnesium, and vitamins. So next time when you're tempted by a cookie or those jelly beans on your co-worker's desk (bad co-worker!), reach for some I Heart Keenwah instead.
For once, you won't be sacrificing a thing.
