We can do breakfast. We can do lunch. And we can do dinner. But there's a bunch of time in between and after dinner - what do we eat then?!?!?
Let's face it: a healthy, delicious, and filling snack is sometimes exactly what we need. We have our fruits, we have our veggies, and that's all good. Everyone loves their chips though, right? Unfortunately, there's a myriad of chips out there that are high in sugar, salt, fat, and/or contain animal products. So what if, during your snack-time, I offered you a vegan/cholesterol-free, gluten-free, trans fat-free, preservative-free, (top eight) allergen-free, corn-free, GMO-free, healthy, hearty, and flavorful/delicious/tasty chip selection. I'm guessing you'd take me up on my offer. And when I told you that you had your choice of five different flavors, I know you'd definitely take me up on the offer.
I'm talking about Beanfields' Bean & Rice Chips. Beanfields popped onto the scene in January 2011 and has since racked up the awards for their high-quality snacks, culminating in the "Best of Show" award at Natural Products Expo West. VegNews deemed their flagship Nacho chips "Vegan Doritos."
Beanfields' mission statement reads:
"We're dedicated to making delicious all-natural snacks that are a wholesome and satisfying alternative to snacks made from corn, potato, and wheat. Our mission is to make the world a healthier place to crunch. We believe beans are good for our families, good for farmers, and good for our planet!"
Chock full of fiber and protein; lower in saturated fat, sodium, and calories than most other chips; Beanfields really represents the full package in a chip. Seriously, their nutritional facts wowed me. I had the scrumptious pleasure and privilege of sampling Beanfields' chip selection - and let me tell you, it was an excellent week of snacking. Not only did I get my fill of full flavor, but the chips also managed to fill me up, which allowed me to escape without downing whole bags at once (although, they are so tasty that you'll have to watch out to make sure you don't do it yourself). There also was no "yucky" feeling afterward, which some salty/greasy/fatty snacks can often do to you.
My personal favorites were the esteemed Nacho and the Pico de Gallo (which may actually get my nod as #1). The other yummy flavors are: Sea Salt, Sea Salt & Pepper, and Unsalted. Simple, nutritious, packed with crispy, crunchy goodness, these chips earn a top spot on the snacking totem pole.
You can find your new favorite snack in most Whole Foods locations and natural markets near you. If not, you can find more information on how to get them stocked up at your local markets from their Where To Buy page.
If Beanfields' "Crispyliciousness" isn't enough for you, you should know they are a family owned company who commits to helping food and business practices staying up-to-date, also contributing a portion of their profits to non-profit sustainable farming efforts.
They've won me over in taste and message. And speaking of winning, are you ready to do so?
