Beanitos Bean Chips Giveaway

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

School is back in session - have I mentioned that yet?
(ha - I know some of you followers are laughing at that one!)

My goal this school year is to increase my son's taste palate beyond chicken nuggets and yogurt and introduce new food choices that are both healthy and yummy. I recently came across these handy single serve Beanitos Bean Chips and knew I had to try them. My son loves tortilla chips so I figured Beanitos would be a healthier option. These chips are made from black and pinto beans rather than corn. Each single serving bag of Beanitos contains 6 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein, which helps fill the belly and eliminate that side munching on other snacks. I loved how the bags were the perfect size for his little hands and are easy to throw into the diaper bag or lunchbox when your day is busy and you need to GO!

But were these chips really healthier than regular corn or potato chips?

Look, I understand how the worrying mom mind thinks -- are there harmful additives in these chips?
Beanitos are free of corn, wheat, soy, potato, trans fat and cholesterol. Plus they are certified non-GMO (you know, free of genetically modified ingredients) and gluten free so Beanitos can fit into basically anyone's diet!

But let me remind you, my son is SUPER picky, so I was hesitant to introduce to him to these new healthy snacks. However, he saw the bag and asked me, "Chips?" So I opened a bag and he walked into the living room and started to chow down. Now every time we walk into the house in the evening he asks, "More?" His favorite flavor is the Black Bean. Plus, Beanitos are the perfect healthy alternative for that pre-dinner snack, holding him over until dinner yet won't fill his little belly with unnecessary sugars or additives. My husband is even loving his Beanitos. He's a huge spicy guy, so he loves the Black Bean with Chipolte Barbeque. I, however, live on the safe side and love the Pinto Bean and Flax Cheddar Cheese. Lately I've been snacking on a bag when I start to get that late morning snack craving.

Even the dog's a fan!

Beanitos are a huge hit with my family and I'm so happy to have found a new healthy snack to fill up our cupboards. If you're a busy mom looking for some new snacks for your family, Beanitos is the perfect fit for you!
