SuperSeedz Review and Giveaway

SuperSeedz Review & Giveaway

I think it’s pretty obvious by now that I’m obsessed with food. I’m always planning my next meal, brainstorming a new recipe, or trying to find healthy options for snacks. Some of my favorite snacks include my yam fries with garlic aioli, raw veggies with vegan walnut and mushroom pate, and most recently, this toasted coconut and goji berry trail mix. Yum.

When it comes to snacks, I really like options that are portable because it’s easy to keep them in my bag or at the office without worrying about spoilage. This is exactly why I’m so excited to share my latest snack obsession with you: SuperSeedz.

SuperSeedz are shelled, dry-roasted pumpkin seeds that come in eight different flavors: Sea Salt, Really Naked, Sugar & Cinnamon, Tomato Italiano, Somewhat Spicy, Super Spicy, Coco Joe and Original Curry.  Not only are they delicious, but they’re also gluten-free, peanut free, tree nut-free, dairy-free, grain-free, vegan, MSG-free and non-GMO. Score.

Nutritionally, I also like pumpkin seeds for a couple of different reasons:

1. Protein: 1 ounce of pumpkin seeds has 8 grams of protein (16% RDI). When I was plant-based I would often add pumpkin seeds to smoothies to increase my protein intake and they’re a perfect way to add more healthy protein into your diet.

2. Iron: 1 ounce of pumpkin seeds contains 2 mg of iron (15% RDI). Pumpkin seeds are one of the best plant-based sources of iron, which helps facilitate the growth of healthy cells and is especially important for women.

3. Zinc: 1 ounce of pumpkin seeds contains 2 mg of zinc (13% RDI), which is pretty important because this essential trace mineral that helps our immune systems stay strong!

Toasted Coconut and Goji Berry Trail Mix

There are a lot of reasons why people make trail mix. Most people I know make trail mix because they need quick energy on a hike. Or a bike ride. Or perhaps a good run. But me? No.  I make trail mix prior to a shopping trip at IKEA. I mean, can you think of…
