#WeekendUpdate - Trails, Snacks and an @EatEnlightened #GIVEAWAY!

Disclaimer: I was sent Enlightened Crisps and Frozen Treats for review and giveaway purposes.  All opinions are my own and I was not compensated in any other way.

What a fantabulous weekend!  Started out with a 14 mile trail run with my Moms Run this Town mother runner friends!


Mamas did anywhere from 2 miles to the entire 14.  It was great fun and anytime I can wear yellow ProCompression socks is a good day.  It's just the most perfect yellow!


I braved an early Sunday Costco run with S to stock up on my Vega.  Running a little low on Vega sends me into panic mode.  


We discovered these awesome Yummari snacks this weekend too!


So far my favorite flavor is cranberry but they have chocolate chip, chocolate banana, coffee and coconut too.  They have 5 grams of protein and are "powered by" hemp and chia seeds.  Check them out here.


NOW, for my very favorite snack ever ever ever!  Fava beans.  Did you know that Fava Beans are also called Broad Beans and they are the basis of the delicious Enlightened Crisps?


They have 7 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and 100 calories in each serving.  


My hands down favorite flavor is sea salt.  What can I say?  I am a purist!  The only ingredients?  Fava beans, sunflower oil and salt.  Thats it!


They also come in Sriracha, Mesquite BBQ, Wasabi, and Garlic & Onion.  That would be my order of favorites too!


BUT WAIT!  They have ice cream too!  Their ice cream bars have 7-8 grams of protein.  And 70-110 calories!  They have ice cream sandwiches and ice cream bars.  


My favorite is the Sea Salt Caramel!  Check out the swirls of caramel in the bar!  


I got mine at Sprouts but they have a store locator on their website too!  Check it out here.  Well, the super awesome folks at Enlightened are letting me giveaway a sampler pack of the Crisps  and a coupon for a free box of ice cream to 3 winners!  THREE!  Enter on the Rafflecopter!

  38. I had never seen crunchy fava beans until this year. My local grocery (a small one) has them packed in generic bulk containers. It was a lucky accident--they were in the produce section next to the marcona almonds that I was trying to talk myself out of buying (because they are so expensive!).

    ReplyDelete
