Brussels sprouts have a bad rap. Somebody somewhere decided that boiling forever was a good way to cook them, and now there are millions of people who think they hate brussels sprouts because they were forced to eat nasty bitter waterlogged brussels sprouts as children. Brussel Bytes are doing their part for civilization by showing people firsthand that brussels sprouts are not only not awful, but they’re downright delicious. And when they’re made into chips as good as Brussel Bytes, there’s really no excuse to not be eating them. I absolutely love kale chips, but I’ve found a new lust in Brussel Bytes.
Brussels sprouts have a bad rap. Somebody somewhere decided that boiling forever was a good way to cook them, and now there are millions of people who think they hate brussels sprouts because they were forced to eat nasty bitter waterlogged brussels sprouts as children. Brussel Bytes are doing their part for civilization by showing people firsthand that brussels sprouts are not only not awful, but they’re downright delicious. These crispy savory bites are so good, you’ll think you’re eating something unhealthy. Ha! Brussels sprouts are one of the healthiest veggies you could possibly eat. The only way you could make them healthier is by adding superfoods like coconut, cashews and pumpkin seeds. Which Wonderfully Raw has, in fact, done. Which only makes them taste even better, bringing out all their deep deliciousness with a perfect crispy coating of nuts and spices.
Yes, brussels sprouts, when prepared correctly, are profoundly delicious. And when they’re made into chips as good as Brussel Bytes, there’s really no excuse to not be eating them. I absolutely love kale chips, but I’ve found a new lust in Brussel Bytes. The nutty sweet flavor of the brussels sprouts combines brilliantly with coconut flakes and other phenomenal superfood ingredients and umami-rich seasonings to create a snack that tastes every bit as good as Kettle Chips in their heyday, but without any of the guilt. In fact, if you’re eating something this healthy as a snack, not only should you not feel guilty, but you should be feeling pretty smug. These things are nutritionally impeccable — they’re basically like eating an exquisite veggie dish, except they’re crispy and full of flavor and taste like potato chips, but much more interesting. I could easily see these as an appetizer or small plate at a hipster gastropub — they’re addictively good, and the flavor combinations are innovative, bold, and just plain fabulous.
The name Chili Pumpkin Seed Crunch doesn’t really do justice to the depth, complexity, and sheer umami deliciousness of these chips. An incredibly flavorful blend of spices — from chipotle to garlic to carrots to cilantro — creates an amazing warming savory-sweet coating that brings out all the wonderful qualities of the sweet earthy nutty base of brussels sprouts, coconut, cashews and pumpkin seeds. These are amazing eaten out of the bag, and I also love to sprinkle them on salads and soups. They’re just explosively good. Eating your veggies was never so yummy, or so easy.
The primary ingredients in these Brussel Bytes are raw organic brussels sprouts, coconut, cashews and pumpkin seeds. You’d be hard-pressed to put better stuff in your body.
Brussels sprouts are one of the most nutritious vegetables you could possibly eat. Here are some of their virtues:
Coconut has been used by many cultures worldwide for thousands of years, and is well known for its many amazing properties. Coconut is so nutritious, its list of benefits reads like a patent medicine bottle. Many people eat several tablespoons of coconut oil daily, for the incredible host of benefits it confers. It’s full of health-boosting lauric acid and medium-chain triglycerides, and it’s been shown to:
Cashews are a great source of dietary protein, healthy fats, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Here are some of the wonders of cashews:
Pumpkin seeds are a powerful superfood that everybody should be eating every day. They’ve been used medicinally for thousands of years, and their health benefits are off the charts. They’re loaded with magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, and vitamin K, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and key amino acids like tryptophan and glutamate. Recent studies (none sponsored by Big Pumpkin) are piling up, all underscoring the positive health effects of pumpkin seeds. The list of health effects of pumpkin seeds is rather impressive. Pumpkin seeds may help to:
Starting out with a passion for pure ingredients and a healthy way of living, we sourced our ingredients from around the world supporting the wild, organic and sustainable movement. We have created wonderful foods that are guilt free and taste like they shouldn’t be! Wonderfully Raw was founded by…
Sequoia always had a passion for good food, that wasn’t always good for her. When life threw her a curve ball and she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, she knew something had to change if she wanted to heal herself. That began the road to good health. Sequoia always loved to eat, not necessarily to cook. She turned to her son Eric for inspiration. Eric Hara, renowned chef in New York City, encouraged his mom to be creative. Sequoia knew in her heart there was a way to create delicious food that was also good for her. She found her way to Living Light Culinary Institute in Mendocino, California, where she trained with the best raw food chefs in the business, and gained the knowledge of how to prepare food that could support and heal the body. She was ready to embark on this journey. She sparked that passion inside of herself and was amazed how she could create food that not only tasted delicious but could heal. Sequoia is now medication-free and her blood sugar is normal. After teaching raw food classes and selling her food to the local community, Sequoia was encouraged to get her food to the market. Hence the beginning of Wonderfully Raw Gourmet! Now this dynamic duo mother and son team has come together to create the amazingly delicious Coco-Roons, Snip Chips and Brussel Bytes, using only the finest organic ingredients. Join us on the journey to good health with our great tasting treats! Check out this video, for the Wonderfully Raw and Coco-Roons story.
