I truly enjoy working with brands and products that align with my own healthy lifestyle and allow me the opportunity to share this love with as many people as I can. I love the products because of the simple and healthy ingredients. I love that the ingredients are not only clean, nutritious and high quality but they also provide the nutrients that people need to keep them fueled throughout the day. With snacks that taste as good as these and the right balance of fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals these totally keep me from becoming hangry, a problem that everyone should avoid.

A solid snack should be these three things: delicious, portable, and consciously made. Yes, Peas! totally checks all of these boxes. As a constant snacker, legumes are my favourite way to fill your belly, keep energy high and stabilize blood sugar. Its great to have a new way to enjoy chickpeas! As a Yes, Peas! ambassador I am happy to spread my love for delicious, nourishing snacks that make you feel as good as they taste!

Training for endurance sports takes lots of dedication. It also means I need to fuel my body properly. I am always on the the look out for tasty healthy snacks. When a good friend told me about Yes Peas I knew I had to try some. The trail mix turned out to be a perfect snack before or after any workouts and the bites are perfect during my long endurance workouts. They taste delicious, they are all natural, and are made by an awesome small company that cares about the quality of their products.
