Snacking Simply

We’ve all experienced this moment before: you rush home, starving, with 20 minutes to change before darting out to your next appointment. No time to cook all the produce you just bought, and no leftovers to snag. You open the pantry and see a bag of potato chips. *Sigh* This will do. The salty morsels get the job done, but you feel kinda gross and definitely guilty later.

Simply put, for any new snack out there, you expect it to not only taste good, but also be good for you if you’re a health nut like me. Although the dual concept of ‘healthy and delicious’ isn’t revolutionary, Simply 7 Snacks takes it up a notch. Lentils aren’t just for soups. Hummus doesn’t have to be just a dip. Quinoa isn’t just a great source of amino acids. Kale isn’t just for salads. Simply 7 incorporates healthy tidbits in these crunchy morsels.

Not only are Simply 7 chips good tasting, they contain up to 50% less fat than potato chips. They’re also kosher, vegetarian and contain only non-GMO ingredients. They’re also made with all-natural ingredients and no trans fats and no cholesterol, no artificial flavors or flavors, and no additives or preservatives.

Alas! I’ve discovered a replacement for those darn chips, and no, they do not taste like cardboard, and yes, they are healthy! Specifically, there are 7 standards which guide the making of these snacks: gluten free, clean ingredients, simple ingredients, no added preservatives, 0 grams of trans fat, no artificial colors or flavors, and delicious taste. Hence the name, Simply7 Snacks.

Founder Rashim Oberoi understood the potato chip dilemma and was frustrated to find food after food made with unrecognizable contents. He created Simply7 to show people that basic, healthy ingredients are indeed appetizing. There’s a few different kinds of snacks, including:

  • Quinoa curls and chips

  • Organic veggie chips

  • Lentil, kale, and hummus flavored chips

  • Simply7 with Giada Popcorn

I personally love the BBQ quinoa chips – they’re crunchy and salty, but still light and leave me feeling good afterwards. Another favorite of mine is the Simply7 with Giadia Popcorn. For someone who is SIMPLY obsessed with popcorn, the the sea salt and olive oil, parmesan, and butter flavors did not disappoint. Sometimes I throw them a little in a ziplock and munch on the go, or in between meetings, answering emails, and attending events. They’re pretty filling and satisfying, so I don’t find myself reaching for something else afterwards.

I also discovered there is more to the popcorn than its tasty flavor. Award-winning chef, Giada De Laurentiis, partnered with Simply7 to not only create a healthy snack, but also to encourage females in agriculture through the Fund Her Farm initiative. Simply7 provides donations to female farmer organizations and is also working towards sourcing 100% of popcorn from female farmers.

Simply7 snacks are tasty and good for you, with ingredients you can actually pronounce. AND they support females in agriculture. Sounds simple enough to me!
