Lack of Product Know How
Sometimes, our abilities are stunted when we find a product but just don't know what to do with it. This is often the case if we..well, are just not into the product's texture or taste for whatever reason. This is normal- we are all different, prefer different things but why waste something just for that reason? You know me- Queen of Re purpose and that includes allergy friendly products. My most recent challenge- SeaSnax!
First, I want to thank SeaSnax for sending me samples of their Sheets and Chomperz- they even come in different flavors! Not sure about all of you, but I think having barbecue seaweed snacks is a definite easy way to integrate your taste and snack needs with a healthier choice. So what was my challenge? Let's begin with their Sheets. I am a visual person, I (think) most of us are so let me show you what a SeaSnax Sheet looks like. I received some of their Original Sheets and Lime Sheets. Their Sheets are paper thin and very delicate- they cannot fold, bend or roll without breaking. And I do warn everyone not to leave an open bag anywhere that you don't want an oil ring. The product's oils may not be very friendly for some of your furniture. Your best bet is to either use up an open bag at once, keep the container inside the foil bag or place the open items into a different airtight container or bag.
So, Nutrimom, What Do I Do With These? Glad you all asked! As I mentioned, the Sheets are very flimsy so they break apart easily. The taste is not too strong but I wasn't an initial fan of the Sheets. For me, they were not quite filling enough for me to consider them a snack BUT this is where my brain kicks in and say "What can I use these for?" I refuse to waste any product. The seaweed taste reminded me of a typical favorite bagel dish so I revamped it into a dairy free version that also utilizes the health benefits that the SeaSnax Sheets offers.
