Yummy Yogavive Chips Review and Giveaway CLOSED

Healthy snacking just got yoga-fied!

One of my favorite things about fall is, well, the food! So, how appropriate that this month's giveaway is a tasty one.

With pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice cookies and muffins making the rounds at offices and potlucks, it is easy to over-indulge. I find self discipline (brahmacharya) is important this time of year. I also like to find ways to set myself up to succeed in my seasonal eating habits. For example, I do not go food shopping when I'm hungry. I bring snacks and a bottle of water with me when I am out and about. I even go so far as to light a pumpkin spice candle to simulate yummy baking smells in my house.

A New Take on Snack Foods

These Yogavive Organic Popped Apple Chips are a perfect part of a healthy lifestyle. Not only do I love their delicious flavor and satisfying crunch, I also love that the ingredient list is as simple as can be (call me crazy, but I am kind of a dork for that feature in my food). And here are some more things to love about Yogavive products:

  • No Added Sugar
  • No Preservatives
  • Gluten Free
  • USDA Certified Organic
  • AVA Certified Vegan

They Come is 5 Scrumptious Flavors

  • Original
  • Cinnamon
  • Caramel
  • Strawberry
  • Peach

Yogavive uses a two part drying process where the apples are first oven baked and then popped making them light and crispy and full of flavor. These popped apple chips are made from the highest quality USDA certified organic Fuji apples and come in two different size options. The 0.35 Ounce packages contain 1 whole apple while the 1.7 Ounce contains 5.

My favorite flavors are the Strawberry and the Original. My husband and my daughter both love the Peach. My son, well, he loves them all. Seriously, my kids can't get enough of these apple chips and since I can't find them in the local stores, I've already ordered more on Amazon.

Disclosure: I received the yummy Yogavive Apple Chips at no charge from Yogavive in order to facilitate this review and giveaway event. I was not, however, compensated to provide my opinion. All thoughts expressed are mine and mine alone.

*If for some reason the response to this post is overwhelming, I may have to limit the number of food donations. My budget is limited, you know how it is. Based on my recent giveaways, I am anticipating around 100 entries. I can swing that and a bit more.

Recipe: Honey Lentils

Here is a recipe guaranteed to warm you up this winter.  Super easy, healthy and inexpensive too!

A very satisfying dish, my family describes this as tasting like an entire Thanksgiving Dinner all rolled into one scrumptious casserole.  Delicious served over quinoa or rice, or eaten as a dip with corn chips or pitas.*



  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 Tsp ground ginger (1 Tbsp fresh grated)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup veggie of choice, grated (carrot, daikon radish, turnip, sweet potato, eggplant are examples of some that I've used)
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350°.  Combine all ingredients in a casserole dish.  Bake for 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours or longer depending on your thickness preference.  I have found that the longer you cook this, the thicker it becomes.
