FOOD: Spiced Up Power Chips


By Rachel Beller

If you’re ever in a pinch, these simple & savory crisps are a great friend in your back pocket! They make a warm treat as an afternoon snack or even great appetizers for any upcoming holiday events! The Morning Boost Power Spicing Blend adds a warm, spicy-sweet depth (think apple pie!) with Ceylon cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves — dramatically cranking up the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory punch of these coins. Here are some fun facts – clove has ranked as the #1 food in terms of antioxidant content. Ceylon cinnamon imbues a warm sweetness and — along with allspice, nutmeg, and ginger — may help balance blood sugars. A pinch of prevention goes a long way!
