January 2/Ottawa -- The United Nations has declared 2013 as the International Year of Quinoa, and as luck would have it, this year sees the Eastern Canada launch of enerjive Quinoa Skinny Crackers.
"With the New Year, people are looking to make healthy choices and quinoa is one of the best foods you can eat!" said Dr. Joel Villeneuve, naturopathic doctor and clinical director of Revivelife Clinic in Ottawa. "We developed enerjive Quinoa Skinny Crackers with the goodness of quinoa to deliver delicious gluten-free snacks that are low in sugar and sodium and are made with wholesome, natural ingredients. The unique formulations were designed to maintain hormonal and energy balance throughout the day which helps to keep you feeling fuller longer."
"Quinoa is chalk-full of health benefits - as a smart carb and low on the glycemic index, it is super easy to digest," adds Villeneuve. "It's also a high-quality complete protein and is rich in manganese which helps the body convert fat into energy, giving your body that rush it needs to perform every day. Other nutrients in this superfood include magnesium, iron, calcium and antioxidants. These all help you stay lean, balance your hormones, and slow down the aging process."
enerjive Quinoa Skinny Crackers come in five flavors, are 90 calories or less per serving, and are made with specially selected ingredients to optimize metabolism, boost energy and cut cravings:
Garlic Cayenne Heat - made with garlic and cayenne for a hint of heat to give metabolism a kick start.
Lemon Berry Burst - a combination of tart dried cranberries and lemon zest.
Chocolate Fix - chocolate chips, sunflower seeds and honey.
Cozy Apple Cinnamon - dried apples and cinnamon to help regulate blood sugar levels and prevent the 3 o'clock slump.
