GLUTEN FREE FLAMOUS ZATAR CHIPS
I'll be honest. Sometimes my square meals are a little off-kilter. I don't think of them that way, but I'm sure others might. For example: Cottage cheese and rice cakes, grape tomatoes and a granny smith apple for dessert. (Even the cook likes her time off!) Sounds fine, right? But then the guilt sets it and I think of how many of those rice cakes it's possible to consume in one sitting, how high their glycemic index must be, how I really shouldn't be doing this...and on and on...
Which is why I was so happy to find Flamous Zatar Chips. Three grams of protein per serving, about eight chips. Guilt receded! Why the protein? Perhaps its the multigrain mix of brown rice, flax and buckwheat, or the beans and sesame seeds. Yowza! All in one small six-sided snack!
I can now have the quick lunches I sometimes prefer and feel I'm doing something good for myself. Oh, and the Zatar blend of spices? Perfectly pitched for a creamy spread like cottage or goat cheese, though I also recommend the with garlic and lemon hummus: snappy!
