Health is Wealth Spinach Munchees

As I'm constantly on the go, a quick lunch is an absolute necessity for me. Since I'm also insistant that the lunch be of the healthy variety, I'm sometimes left at a loss for something to eat. A good option that I've found, however, are Spinach Munchees from Health is Wealth. These bite-sized mini pockets are made with spinach and soy mozzarella and are wrapped in whole wheat pockets. They're all-natural and contain zero cholesterol and trans fats.

The munchees take about 12 minutes in a 425 degree oven, and the finished product is light and crispy on the outside with a delicious cheese and spinach filling on the inside. A six-munchee serving contains 180 calories with 7 grams of fat (.5 saturated, 2 grams polyunsaturated, 3.5 monounsaturated), 3 grams of fiber, 25 grams total carbohydrates, 1 gram of sugar, 7 grams of protein. They boast 40% vitamin A, 10% vitamin C, 10% calcium, and 10% iron (based on a 2,000 calorie diet). As with all frozen foods, they are unfortunately a little high in sodium--320 mg. per serving.

Ingredients
Wrapper: Stone Ground Whole Wheat Flour, Unbleached Wheat Flour, Water, Sea Salt, Annatto and Tumeric.
Filling: Chopped Spinach, Fat Free Soy Cheese (Organic Soybean Curd {Soybeans, Water, Citric Acid}, Calcium Caseinate, Corn Starch, Natural Flavor, Salt, Calcium Citrate, Rice Starch, Locust Bean Gum, Carrageenan, Soy Lecithin, Annatto, Vitamin A Acetate, Riboflavin), Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Bread Crumbs (Stone Ground Whole Wheat Flour, Yeast, Sea Salt, Malt Syrup Solids (Barley Malt Extract, Soy Flour)) and Natural Spices

Manufacturer Says: Health is Wealth Spinach Munchees use only the finest leaf green spinach and all natural ingredients. Enjoy them as an appetizer, a light entree or snack.

This unique blend of whole wheat, expeller pressed non-hydrogenated oils and low fat ingredients produces a bite size mini pocket that is low in calories and high in complex carbohydrates — without preservatives or trans-fatty acids. Our Munchees are 100% Vegetarian. All natural, cholesterol-free, lactose-free, and no MSG.
