This week’s review is of Calbee Snack Salad Snapea Crisps, Original Flavor. According to the company’s website, this snack is made from “high-quality sun-dried peas.” They pride themselves on making peas taste really good, while still retaining all the health benefits. The product is, of course, gluten and casein-free. Plus, they are high in fiber, iron, and other vitamins. snapea crisps

I enjoy eating these with lunch or as a take-along snack. They are crispy, like a chip, and have a pleasant flavor which is not overly pea-like (at least to my taste buds). This is also a fun way to get your children eating a healthy snack too. Personally, I don’t like peas due to their texture (mushiness is just not appealing to me), so when I saw these were crispy – I knew I had to try them! Snapea Crisps are also available in a Caesar Salad flavor, but I have not seen these in my area stores yet.

I found these snacks at Costco, in a very affordable two-pack. However, you can also find them at Trader Joe’s or even order them through Amazon. If you want to learn more about Calbee and their other snack items, please visit their website.

This week’s recipe is at Stockpiling Moms is Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Crockpot Frito Pie! I love to use my crockpot, especially if we are having a busy week of appointments and activities. This recipe was quick to get started, yet yielded fantastic results! (Nicholas loves having Fritos as part of dinner too.) The fun part about this recipe is that you can customize the end result based on what toppings you add into it. I added corn, guacamole, and lettuce to mine but you could also try salsa and/or hot sauce or even tomatoes. Nicholas gave this dish 200 Thumbs Up!
