Quinoa Chips from Simpy 7 are Sure to Make you Smile!

So many foods out there right now are overly processed or hiding behind a guise of “natural” when they are not.  So to find a snack food that really is made naturally and without the use of things like artificial colors, preservatives, flavors or GMOs, makes me happy!  Simply 7 sent me their new line of quinoa chips in exchange for my honest opinion.  I received the following quinoa snack flavors: Sea Salt, Barbeque, Cheddar and Sour Cream & Onion.

What did I think?

Simply 7 Quinoa chips are simply amazing!  Seriously!  Who knew you could get such a great tasting snack food made with such great ingredients?  These quinoa chips are vegetarian, kosher, gluten-free and have no trans fat, too! 

My family was excited to have a snack chip in the house that they could actually eat and in flavors you would see by the potato chip brands.  Miss LadyBug was over the moon for the Barbeque flavor – this hickory smoked flavor has just a hint of sweet and is delicious all on its own – a definite win in the barbeque chip arena!

Get Going on Green Living with All You Need Is Less

I love that Earth Day makes more people aware of taking care of our planet should be a priority (although I wish that were year round and not just one day or at best, a month!).   FINALLY!  I am not walking around alone as that crunchy gal who talks about sorting recyclables, cutting chemicals out of our lives and making things instead of buying – in fact, during the month of April, I blend in quite well!  I usually take this time of year to try and make year-round converts of people that have taken a sudden interest in being green.  The trick is, making it easy for them.  As with any change in life, the easier it is for someone, the more likely they are to do it and the more likely they are to stick with it!  Green living is something we can all do and it doesn’t have to be hard!
