A few weeks ago my mom had found this trail mix made out of broad beans, coconut and cherries. They had samples (I believe she was at Cosco) and she thought it tasted really good (and not like beans at all) so she bought a bag for me to try when I was up in Cleveland for my cousin’s wedding in August. I thought I would do a little product review for everyone so you can decide if it is something you would like to purchase.
Pros: Made out of beans and easy to understand ingredients, it has a good amount of fiber and protein from the beans, it is fairly low in both fat and sugar, and it is delicious combination of sweet and salty but not over powering. Also, it is gluten free, so even people on restricted diets can enjoy it.
Cons: Giant bag, easy to eat more than 1 portion; hard to find
Because it comes in such a giant bag I portioned it out into little snack bags so I could tell how much I was eating, and that did work pretty well for the most part. I have not been able to find it yet here in Miami but I am keeping my eyes peeled for it, because I would like to keep some on hand to pack as an afternoon snack for work. ( I have seen that you can order it on Amazon though, so I may have to do that). But it is a great healthy snack to munch on and I do recommend it!
Have a great week everyone!
