Chips and Guacamole Done Right!

I am always on the look out for new snack products that are delicious and nutritious. Last week, I received a package of assorted chips from Way Better Snacks that included sprouted chips. While I was excited because of their healthy ingredients, my kids were a little skeptical. After one bite, we were all hooked! The sweet potato and black bean flavor was our favorite.
The chips contain sprouted grains, seeds and beans, making a nutritious chip alternative. I love sprouted breads and tortillas, so why not a sprouted chip? I paired the chips with my homemade guacamole and within minutes I had a healthy snack full of omegas both from the chips and the guacamole!


Ingredients:
2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and the pulp thoroughly mashed
1 teaspoon coarsely chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons orange or pineapple juice 
¼ teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
Salt to taste

Directions:
1. In a large bowl, mash the avocado.
2. Stir in cilantro, juices, cumin and salt.
3. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until serving, placing one of the avocado pits into the bowl to help keep the guacamole from browning.

Nutritional Benefits of Sprouting
Sprouting is the natural way to increase the vitamin, mineral and lignin content of flax and stabilize the Omega3 and other essential fatty acids and help with digestion.
