Product Review: Choose 'Way Better Snacks' for National Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month, but it’s also two months in to the new year and many people may have decided to stop working on their New Year’s resolutions to stay fit and eat healthy. Thankfully, there are tasty products out there that will satisfy our cravings but are also healthy and nutritious, such as Way Better Snacks.

You have probably heard of the word “sprouting," but do you know how nutritious it actually is for a person? As explained by Way Better Snacks themselves, “sprouting creates enzymes which start the seed on its way to becoming a plant. When the seed begins 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.”

Basically, the plant proteins, fatty acids, starches, and vitamins are now "bio available" for human digestion, which enables us to better absorb these nutrients. Aside from better nutrient absorption, sprouting also provides us with increased vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, and digestibility. Sprouting also contains anticancer substances. Are you convinced yet?

If you are convinced to choose sprouting, check out any of Way Better Snacks new products, which can be purchased online or at many national retailers, such as Whole Foods. Choose from any of the six new varieties of tortilla chips, such as Simply Sunny Multi-Grain, Simple Sweet Potato, Simply Beyond Black Bean, Simply So Sweet Chili, Simply Unbeatable Blues and No Salt Naked Blues.

Each flavor is incredibly delicious and if you’re skeptical on the taste of sprouting goods—don’t be! Each bag of these sprouted goodies taste just like any other favorite flavor of tortilla chips. There is no difference in taste, but the benefits exceed your typical snack. How often can you choose a snack that actually does your body good?

Made with sprouted ingredients like flaxseed, chia seeds, quinoa, black beans, broccoli seeds, and daikon radish seeds (which also help fight cancer), these low-sodium, kosher vegan snacks are also gluten and GMO free, contain 100% whole grain, and are a good source of fiber. If you’re looking for a delicious snack with added benefits, you will not be disappointed with any of the six new flavors of tortilla chips by Way Better Snacks.
