I don't know about you, but this month has been a party month in our home! With the Super Bowl, the Olympics and a baby on the way, making delicious snacks has been hard to resist! One thing that makes me feel a little better about indulging in anything food, has been the fact that the yummy snacks I've been eating have been filled with lots of vitamins and minerals.
I received a party pack from Salba Smart, filled with yummy organic corn tortilla chips, salsa and chia seeds, perfect for a party! Most parties are full of sugary treats, and make you feel sick after indulging in the hard to resist cookies and candy, but they don't have to be. With Salba Smart products you'll know that you are eating healthy while enjoying delicious snacks and treats. One of my favorites is Clean Cuisine Chia Seed Cookies. Who knew cookies could be good for you!
