Who among us hasn’t found themselves with their hand desperately foraging around the bottom of a Pringles can searching for any last bits of salty, dehydrated-spud goodness?
Because unhealthy snacks just taste so delicious.
That’s why incorporating wholesome alternatives can be so difficult. If something’s good for you, chances are it tastes like the inside of a shoe box—after a pair of used sneakers has been stored in it for six months.
But some really smart people have created a line of munchable treats called Simply 7 Snacks, made from healthy stuff like chickpeas, lentils and pomegranates.
The magic number refers to the seven rules that each of their products must follow: zero grams trans fat and no cholesterol; no artificial colors or flavors; no additives or preservatives; gluten-free ingredients; all-natural recipes; simple ingredients; and simply delicious.
And they succeed, especially with that last one.
Choose from unusual options like Creamy Dill Lentil Chips, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Chips or White Cheddar Pomegranate Chips. They’re crunchy, savory and extremely satisfying, just like really good bad-for-you snacks, which leaves us to search for other ways to make ourselves feel guilty.
Maybe a phone call to Mom will do the trick.
