Way Better Snack Review and Giveaway (Are "Way Better" Chips Really Better?) Open to US and Canada

I first saw these yummy chips from my friend who also is a blogger. You should check her site out at Chetopian Family, she does lots of giveaways.  

Anywhooo... I love chips, but most of the chips our there are so greasy and no nutrients on them at all. That's why I had to contact the people at Way Better Snacks to see why their chips are much better than the others. 

Here's what you need to know about their chips and why it's definitely Way Better.
  1. They use simple ingredients to produce a great tasting and nutritious product.
  2. Sprouting provides increased vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, digestibility and nutrient absorption.
  3. Whether you're snacking by yourself or with friends, they have flavor that fits.
  4. Their broccoli and daikon radish seeds contain sulphoraphane glucosinolate, the natural antioxidant found in broccoli. Plus, each serving of their chips contains at least 17 grams of whole grains. 

What do you get when you add sprouted whole grains & seeds to a tortilla chip? A Way Better Snack!
Every chip in here is bursting with goodness, because we’ve unlocked the powerful nutrients found in perfect, unprocessed ingredients. So when you share these deliciously sprouted chips, you’re actually improving someone’s well-being. You’re the best. Still good & crunchy. Still great with salsa. Just better for you. Doesn’t that make snacking better too?

What do you get when you add sprouted whole grains & seeds to a tortilla chip? A Way Better Snack!

It all started with a simple vision to create a better snack.  We wondered, wouldn’t it be great to go back to a time when the food we ate was actually nutritious and good for you.  You know, before decades of environmental harm and mega food conglomerate processing wiped out most of the nutrients which used to be abundant in the food your grandparents ate.  To make products you could feel good about eating again and sharing with others.  Well, with that in mind, we decided to do just that.  And we were led to the miracle of germination (you might know it as sprouting).  Now we know that nutritionists and naturalists have been touting the incredible nutritional benefits of sprouting for years.  And we knew how sprouting unlocked all the “good” that is inherent in all grains, seed and beans and brings them back to life (nutritionally speaking).  So we thought, why then couldn’t we combine the powerful benefits of sprouting to a great tasting snack?  You know sort of like those old TV commercials with that guy and girl tripping into each other with their chocolate and peanut butter.  Anyway, you get the picture.
So, supported by the memories of simpler days gone by, we began to craft our products.  And after many tries, we can say we’re proud to share Way Better Snacks with you.  All are high in omega 3’s, antioxidants and other vital nutrients, and all are low in sodium and saturated fat.  Way Better Snacks!  They pretty much named themselves.
So grab a bag of Way Better Snacks, sit back, kick your feet up and think about some great old memories of simpler days gone by.  And Enjoy!

Plus look at all the ingredients. Yummy goodness on each and every bite. 

What we love about it is the taste. You can actually taste all the flavors and it won't leave that oily taste in your mouth. It's also thick enough for dips. We love chips in this house. We eat them by the bagfuls. If there's chips around, you bet it will be gone quick. But, like I said we're used to eating the greasy ones admit it, they taste good even though they're covered in oil and makes a pretty mess on your hands. So, the real taste test was with my family. Specially the little ones. Most of my reviews are based from them when it comes to the food reviews. The first one we tasted was the Unbeatable Blues Tortilla Chips. I was looking at the kids faces when they had their first bite and crossing my fingers behind my back. VICTORY!!! They loved it, they really loved it. I was so happy that they did. When the bag was gone. We tried the Sweeet Potato Tortilla Chips and I had to take the bag away from them or they will devour the whole thing, and I had to taste it too. LOL! 

The great thing about it is they are available at our local store. YESSS!!!

How to use your Donut Hair Bun - DIY

Over the years my hair has gotten thinner and I'm loosing tons of them every day. I've always had long hair, even when I was a kid and I love doing my hair. Then when I had kids I didn't have a lot of time doing fancy stuff to it so most of the time I just tie it in a ponytail and go on with my day.  

So when I saw a friend of mine and she had a bun on her head I asked her what it's called and so I went and bought myself a Conair Bun Maker Set.

It was easy to do and I love it. Keeps intact for the whole entire day and I don't have to worry about my hair getting in the way of my daily chores.

Hope the video helps you out a bit. There's no audio on my video (sorry).

Oven Roasted Ranch Corn on the Cob Recipe

It's still winter here in NY and I'm craving for some delicious fresh corn. Too bad I have to wait for another 4-5 months :-( so kicking myself for posting this now. I made this last summer and didn't get the chance to post it. I can just imagine how this would taste right now. I feel like I want to lick the screen but I won't. LOL!

Anyway, that's just a weird image of someone licking a computer screen hahaha. I'm going insane with this crazy winter we've had. I'm not even sure if it will ever end. Looking out the window, it's beautiful outside with the sun being out, but the ground is covered with snow.  UGH! I CANNOT wait until spring or warmer weather is here.

So here's what you need:
  • 1 Stick butter, melted
  • 1 packet Hidden Valley Original Ranch Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • 8 ears fresh corn on the cob (cleaned and husked) I left the end for easy pick up or to hold

What to do:
  1. Preheat your oven to 425F
  2. Husk your corn and clean. Place on an oven safe aluminum pan.
  3. Melt butter and mix most of the ranch powder. You can save some to sprinkle after the corn is done cooking or you can mix it all in the melted butter, it's up to you. It doesn't matter, it will taste good no matter what.
  4. Brush corn with the ranch butter mix and bake for 20-25 minutes or until it's soft and turning brown.
  5. Take it out of the oven and brush it with ranch butter mix if you still have some left and enjoy!

Soooooo, good!!! I seriously cannot wait until summer to have some more of these.

Make sure you share this post on Facebook, Google, Twitter or Pinterest :-)
