SNACK REVIEW: @extraordinary.foods Kale chips from @sprout_market 🥗🍟.
▪️All natural ingredients, Paleo, gluten free, handmade, oil free, vegan.
▪️Ingredients: organic kale, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pepper, nutritional yeast, Himalayan pink salt, rosemary, vegan probiotic.
▪️Average macros per serve (22.5g): 60 cals, 0.9gC/4.9gF/2.5gP.
▪️These chips pack a lot of flavour and crunch into each kale leaf. They don't skimp on seasoning at all, but they're also not so salty that you're left feeling thirsty.
▪️They're super versatile as a snack. I either munch on them like a normal packet of chips, or I toss them over salad for an extra crunch.
▪️They're a really easy way to get some healthy fats into your diet without feeling heavy or overly full. They've been a saviour for me in terms of adding some calorie-dense nutrients to my daily diet without the bloat.
▪️These ones contain probiotics to help your digestive system - and as I've mentioned, mine has taken a bit of a beating in the past, so these are a really easy and delicious way to get some balance back in my gut.
▪️They taste like Doritos but they're kale. The biggest pro of all.
▪️They're a little addictive, and because the packet is 2 serves, it's pretty easy to eat your way through a lot of calories mindlessly.
▪️They can't be topped on oats 😞. ▪️Like any chips, theres also some crumbs at the bottom that are messy to eat. My solution is to whip out a spoon and eat all the kale crumbs without looking like a complete savage.
▪️One packet can be deemed expensive, especially when a packet of 'normal' chips are about half the price. But you're paying for quality and are getting the same chip craving satisfied without loading up on saturated fats and artificial seasonings 👌🏻.
Verdict: 8/10. Probably one of my favourite savoury snacks on offer. If you're a fan of crunchy, flavour-packed chips but don't want to load up on BS ingredients, then these are definitely for you. If you're scared of healthy fats or hate on healthy alternatives, then enjoy your low calorie corn thins or Doritos respectively. These are the perfect middle ground in my opinion ✌🏻.
