This blog is going up a lot later than I anticipated because I have been preparing to go back to work and I forgot to schedule it, oops!
Today I am reviewing some of Inspiral’s kale chips.
These chips are organic, raw, vegan, paleo, gluten free, soya free, free from cholesterol and trans fats. They have no added sugar, MSG or artifical ingredients, they are GMO free and 100% natural so they tick a lot of boxes for a lot of people. Another great thing is that the packaging is zero waste as you can compost it.
Kale is nutritionally dense and Inspiral keeps those nutrients in the kale by air drying the leaves instead of baking them.
The first packet I tried was the Raw beetroot and acerola kale chips. I couldn’t noticeable really taste the beetroot or cherries. I got a deep sweetness and a tang which kept me going back for more. These were the best kale chips I have ever had, I don’t particularly like kale and I hate cherries so I didn’t think I was going to like them but they were delicious. These are the first kale chips I’ve had that weren’t coated in nut butter, they were so light and airy whilst still being crunchy and crumbly that they were just addictive, and they had no bitter flavour. These may be my new favourite snack.
Ingredients: Curly kale, sunflower seeds, buckwheat, olive oil, cold-pressed, raw sunflower oil, carrots, lime juice, deactivated nutritional yeast, beetroot powder, acerola, Himalayan crystal salt.
The second flavour I tried was the Crispy Incan BBQ kale chips, these are more like the kale chips I am used to, coated in nut butter and a bit heavier. They have a sweetness and smokiness from the cashews and paprika, with a little tang from the Incan berries. They weren’t as light as the other flavour but they packed more of a punch. Although the flavour did become a little too intense before I finished the pack.
Ingredients: Curly kale, cashew nuts, flaxseeds, cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, smoked paprika, palmyra blossom nectar, Incan berries, Himalayan rock salt, cayenne pepper.
I paid £1.70 for each 30g pack at WHSmiths.
I hope you are having a great week,
