May: National Salsa Month + Giveaway

I bet you didn't know that May is national salsa month. So what better way to celebrate than with a review of some tasty salsa with an added healthy kick.



A little known grain called Salba has revolutionized America’s favorite condiment: salsa. Salba is a superfood. A nutrient-packed grain grown only in Peru, Salba is the richest whole food source of Omega-3 fatty acids and fiber found in nature – and has been clinically proven to assist in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease and in the reduction of blood pressure, inflammation and coagulation factors.

Ounce for ounce, Salba grain provides three times more iron than spinach, 15 times more magnesium than broccoli, and six times more calcium than whole milk. You can read more here: www.salbasmart.com.



Of course salsa is rarely eaten alone: paired with tortilla chips, it’s an ideal snack. Salba Smart also offers a range of products made from Salba which complement salsa, including organic tortilla chips, whole wheat tortillas and pretzels.

All products contain 0g of trans fats, and are gluten free (except tortillas and pretzels) and Certified Non GMO. Look for Salba Smart at Whole Foods Market, Wild Oats, Vitamin Cottage, Wegman’s and other natural foods stores.



So what did we think?

Tasty!

Everyone loves the mild salsa and the corn chips. Combine delicious tortilla chips tasting like freshly fried corn tortillas found at restaurants the duo makes for an excellent, healthy, and tasty snack. When we opened the medium salsa I fell in love. That little bit of kick without the overpowering burn some hot salsa has really hit the spot. Tastes wonderful with the hearty blue corn tortilla chips. My 16 year old daughter skipped the medium liking the mild, I'm hooked on the medium and that leaves Dad loving the hot. A hearty chunky salsa fills the taste buds and the stomach. Just knowing I'm eating something that tastes this good and is this good for me too, makes me smile.

MMM Salsa on eggs in a roll up. YUM

flared0ne said...

For when it's hot out, Salsa is one of those "double-coverage" foods that can both cool you off nicely (nice chilled tomatoes, onions, etc) AND raise a sweat (to cool you off even more)! Here's hoping!

Mollie G. said...

I have to admit, there are a couple of Mexican-style restaurants that we go to BECAUSE they basically provide cold all-you-can-eat salsa and fresh, warm chips at the table -- we usually wind up taking most of our orders home since we've already filled up on the Good Stuff!
