The holidays are over and a new year has begun. For many of us that means the last few weeks have been filled with crazy schedules and large amounts of calories! Now we are adjusting back to more normal schedules and I am desperately trying to get my appetite back on a much more normal schedule as well! No matter how hard I try, I can’t avoid my desire for a snack a couple of times a day, so I decided my focus this new year is going to be trying to find healthier snack choices. One new snack I started turning to when a craving hits, is quinoa. I Heart Keenwah makes super convenient and quite yummy quinoa snacks. These yummy clusters of deliciousness are ready to eat right out of the bag so you can take them with you to work, on the bus, in your car, diaper bag, purse, and more! I love to eat I Heart Keenwah straight out of the bag but it is also a great sprinkled on yogurt. I tried both the Cranberry Cashew and Almond I Heart Keenwah flavors. Both flavors were excellent. I plan on trying the chocolate sea salt flavor next. Dark chocolate, almonds, and sea salt create a mixture of salty and sweet I can’t resist.
Do you heart quinoa? I do. If you don’t yet, here are a few reasons that you should. Quinoa is considered a super food for many good reasons. It is the only grain that is a complete source of protein containing all 9 essential amino acids. This is the same kind of protein found in meat and dairy! Quinoa’s protein content is quite impressive ranging between 14 to 18 per cent. Quinoa is also gluten-free, low-glycemic, high in fiber, and packed with vitamins and minerals. After reading about all of the great benefits of quinoa, I was thrilled to discover I actually love the taste as well.
I Heart Keenwah is available in many stores in the United States and Canada. Visit the I Heart Keenwah website to find a store near you! I Heart Keenwah not available where you live? No worries!
