I was the very lucky recipient of a box of snacks:
Beyond Better Foods sent me full size samples of their ENLIGHTENED broad bean crisps in all flavors, and the timing could not have been better, as I had to travel a few times soon after receiving them. ENLIGHTENED crisps, marketed as “The Good-For-You Crisp”, are roasted broad beans (also known as fava beans) in various flavors, such as wasabi and barbeque. These babies pack a wallop, with 7 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber in each small serving. They are organic, gluten-free, non-GMO and soy-free.
All the flavors were very good, the wasabi and sriracha had a good kick without being insanely spicy, and the others were all mild but tasty. I was nervous about the garlic and onion flavor, if it would be too strong, but it was delicious without being overly pungent. I might not eat that one on a plane but I wasn’t too worried snacking on a few before I went to meet friends either.
They are great for traveling (as you can see from the picture above, I was munching them on during an overnight flight to Austin), since they have so much fiber and protein, they make for a great snack you can throw in your bag that doesn’t take up a lot of space but has a lot of nutrition in such a small package. I ate these and drank hot tea and felt as good as you can feel on an overnight flight!
I’m not much of a snacker but this is something I can get behind. If you need high-energy snacks for traveling or just to get you through your day, ENLIGHTENED broad bean crisps are a good bet.
