Eastern Canada launch marked by United Nations' International Year of
OTTAWA, Jan. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - The United Nations has declared 2013 as the
International Year of Quinoa, and there's no better time to celebrate the abundant health benefits
of quinoa and 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 Dr. Joel. "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 tasty flavours, are 90 calories or
less per serving, and are made with specially selected ingredients to
optimize metabolism, boost energy and cut cravings:

regulate blood sugar levels to prevent the 3 o'clock slump.

ground flaxseed, poppy seeds, and honey make for the perfect mid-day
