I was STARVING the other day while I was out shopping and went over to Ambrosia one of my favorite heath food stores conveniently located in the underground pathway.
I just wanted to grab a quick snack and I saw these little snack packs I had never seen before which were in the gluten free section.
What got me was the “Cocoa Kissed” part.
They looked like chocolate covered peanuts however the package said “We’re NOT nuts”.
Very cute and clever and oh wait – by VEGA!!
How did I not know about this! I know ALL the Vega products.
Anyways, so of COURSE I bought them as they claimed to have 13x MORE omega 3′s than Wild Salmon.
So what are Savi Seeds?
According to the SaviSeed.com website they are organic sacha inchi seeds. Sacha inchi seeds are the super food of the ancient Inca peoples. Not just your average seed, sacha inchi seeds also known as the Inca Peanut are native to the Amazon rainforest and have been cultivated and consumed for centuries in Peru. SaviSeeds are the fruit of sacha inchi plants, herbaceous vines that produce star-shaped green pods which yield edible seeds – SaviSeeds.
SaviSeeds are apparently the richest source of Omega 3 on the planet! At 7000mg of heart-healthy Omega 3 per one ounce serving, they offer 13 times more Omega 3 than an ounce of wild salmon.
Since Omega 3 is not naturally produced by the body, it’s essential to consume Omega 3 rich foods like SaviSeed to reduce inflammation and promote heart, joint and mental health , and even help to prevent cancer and disease.
So – they’re good for you! We GET IT!
But what did they taste like?
Well, as I said I bought the ones called “Cocoa Kissed” which meant they were covered in 70% cocoa.
They really did taste like a chocolate covered nut.
I felt like I was doing something bad but I knew that the Omega-3′s were doing my body good.
It cost me $2.99 for the snack sized pack and it contains just 170 calories.
It also has 4g of fiber per 1 oz and 5g of protein…
Ahhhh… how much better can this get!
Give them a try if you get a chance – And remember they are “NOT” nuts :-p
