Happy Friday, everyone! Today’s Friday’s Find is also raw in keeping with my Raw Challenge inspired by April in the Raw. Interestingly, I’ve found that every raw product that I’ve come across in stores is naturally gluten free.
I picked up a package of Rhythm Chips at Whole Foods at the beginning of my Raw Challenge. I figured they’d be fun to try on a day when I didn’t have time to prepare my own raw snack. That day came, and these kale chips definitely did the trick.
I opted for the Bombay Curry flavor, but they also come in Kool Ranch, Zesty Nacho, Texas BBQ, and Mango Habanero. The Bombay Curry flooded my mouth with flavor. With these ingredients, how could they not?
- Fresh kale
- Fresh zucchini
- Fresh carrot
- Fresh onion
- Shredded coconut
- Lemon juice
- Fresh ginger
- Vegan nutritional yeast
- Apple cider vinegar
- Fresh cilantro
- Sea salt
They didn’t crumble like my homemade kale chips, and they tasted like Indian-spiced kale. And since I’m really missing my chips and salsa right now, it was nice to crunch on a chip. I like how the pieces were rolled and others were bunched for a satisfying mouthful.
I’d never tried dehydrated kale before. I bake mine at 350°F. Rhythm Chips are air crisped at a low temperature which maintains the raw living enzymes, increasing nutritional benefits. You know I’ll be trying this method next, right?
As with most packaged raw foods, these chips aren’t cheap. I spent over $6.00 for one two-ounce bag, so Rhythm Chips won’t be making my weekly shopping list. Plus, homemade kale chips are just so ridiculously easy to make. But you’d better believe I’ll be playing with my recipe to see if I can replicate that Bombay Curry flavor. Yum!
