WIN-It-Wednesday: Plentils… by Enjoy Life Foods

Plentils are the new chip that has plenty of good. And none of the not so good.

The newest addition to the Enjoy Life family, Plentils, join their product line-up that are all gluten-free and free from the top most common allergens.

Free of gluten, dairy, soy, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, fish and shellfish; as well as free of casein, potato, sesame and sulfites. These chips are full of flavor and crunch.

So what are Plentils made of? Lentils of course! And plenty of them. Lentils are a pulse that are low in calories and high in nutrition. They also are high in iron, B vitamins and protein. Talk about a super pulse!

I really like Plentils since they are low in calories and tasty too. That’s why their tagline line is “Better-For-You-Chip”. Only 130 calories and 6 grams of fat per serving, Plentils have 40% less fat than the leading potato chip – Plentils add a nice crunch to lunch or when you need something crunchy to munch. Got that? =)

Plentils come in some fantastic flavors too: Light Sea Salt, Dill & Sour Cream, Garlic & Parmesan and, my favorite, Margherita Pizza. They are just working into grocers across the country, so start looking for them in your area.

But we have a sneak peak of these chips since Plentils is the sponsor of this WIN-It-Wednesday on! Four (Yes! 4) lucky winners will win a two-pack of these delicious new, Better-For-You, chips.

    For something sweet, I dip a slice apples in greek yogurt. Or I freeze fruit (strawberries, bananas, blueberries etc) and mix them into greek yogurt. High in portion, low in fat, but extremely yummy and healthy!!!!!

  2. Margaret Clegg Says:

    My better for me trick is to but plain yogurt and and fresh or frozen fruit instead fo the individual cups. This saves on calories, because there is no added sugar, and it saves on packaging as well. Plus, you can reuse the tubs for other things, or recycle them.

  3. Cara Says:

    When making baked goods I sub egg whites, applesauce, or yogurt instead of using oil.

  4. Chris Boehnlein Says:

    I try very hard to eat more veggies but don’t care for some of them plain. I add a bunch of spinach to my morning smoothie and you can’t even taste it!

  5. Beth Says:

    What could be better then sitting on the front patio, relaxing with a lemonaide and some of these chips. And of course don’t forget your favortie music.

  6. Katie Says:

    My “better for you” tip is making a healthier homemade salad dressing. I used Good Seasonings Zesty Italian mix, but I change the ingredients from what they say to do on the cruet. I use half red wine vinegar and half balsamic vinegar (the whole vinegar portion and also up to the water line) and then I fill the oil portion of the cruet with water, and the 2nd half with light olive oil. Then add the mix and shake. It is SO good, plus it’s soybean oil free!

  7. Lisa Says:

    These sound great! I don’t drink much soda, water is the best! Also, i can’t wait for my garden to be producing.

  8. Amanda Says:

    I just signed up not long ago but I’m happy to have found a good website… Going gluten free is challenging but with sites like this we can be more informed and it can be enjoyable!!!

  9. ashleystrain Says:

    My “Better for You” trick is kale chips!! Kale is super healthy – only 36 calories per cup with 5 grams of fiber as well as doses of calcium, vitamin B6, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals and antioxidants.

    However, kale can be pretty bitter. It’s fantastic in soups but is a little harsh for most people when simply sauteed (a perfect way to make spinach). So, I just separate the leaves, remove the ribs, rip the leaves into pieces, toss them with EVOO, salt, pepper and garlic powder and roast them in the oven until crisp. They taste just like potato chips and make the perfect snack!

  10. Christine Says:

    I like to use GF crackers or chips as a scoop for low fat cottage cheese. Protein + calcium + crunch. This is very satisfying.

  11. Isabelle Says:

    I am of Lebanese decent and I learned to cook my great-great-great-GREAT-grandmother’s recipes when I was a young girl. Discovering my gluten intolerance was a huge letdown for me because of all the bulgar used in Lebanese food. Fortunately, I discovered that in tabbouli and saf soof (Leb salad), quinoa is a fantastic substitute and in kibbeh, amaranth works well. Millet can be used in both!

  12. Christina Says:

    Instead of rich buttery (fatty) mashed potatoes, I steam and purée cauliflower with a few teaspoons coconut oil, salt and pepper, and roasted garlic. They are delicious, light and healthy

  13. Christina Sanders Says:

    Instead of using mayo to add some zip to my sandwiches, I use a smear of avacado! Yummy!

  14. cindy w. Says:

    I try to have fresh fruit for my dessert instead of a calorie laden treat.

  15. robin Says:

    I just started this making kale chips boy are they good! And healthy for you too!

  16. Erica D. Says:

    I’m trying to substitute more vegetables for pasta – like making zucchini lasagna and spaghetti squash instaed of pasta noodles. I’m making more iced tea instead of having other sugary drinks, and I stopped putting sugar in my coffee and am learning to drink it black! I’m trying to also re-look at all my GF snacks and choose items that are better for me! – Celiac and the Beast

  17. Venessa Says:

    One of my better for you tips is to use nonfat Greek yogurt in place of sour cream. Thanks for this giveaway!

  18. Melisa Says:

    I make sure to keep fresh veggies like sweet peppers, broccoli, and cucumbers cut up in the fridge for snacking.

  19. Lori Niver Says:

    I don’t drink soda. I prefer water with lots of ice and slices of fresh lemons or limes. It is refreshing.

  20. Margoka Says:

    I make fruit or vegetable smothies instead of juices.

  21. julie Says:

    Instead of mayo in egg salad, I use mashed avocado. And I water down my kids juice so they don’t get so much sugar!

  22. Michelle Says:

    One of my better for you tips is to never pour salad dressing on your salad! Put salad dressing in a small cup and dip your fork in it before digging into your healthy salad!

  23. Mary Says:

    Drinking straight green tea is not high on my list. But I’ve learned to put one decaf black tea bag and one green tea bag together to make ice tea. Higher in antioxidants with hardly noticeable “green” taste! Thanks for the heads up on the kale chips. Can’t wait to try those for a nice munchable with my black and green iced tea!

  24. Kim Says:

    My better for you tip is to flavor seltzer water with a splash of juice instead of drinking soda.
    These Plentils sound absolutely delicious!!!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  25. Lisa Says:

    My “better for you” is fixing my own dip to have with this plentils and bring them to a bbq for the summer. Love your website. You guys rock!

  26. Deb Gowlland Says:

    Instead of using butter on my toast, I put olive oil on it. Still delish and much healthier!! 🙂 Deb

  27. Kat Says:

    I use chickpeas instead of eggs to make eggless salad.

  28. Jackie Says:

    I have multiple food allergies, so when I crave something sweet, I eat plain coconut yogurt, which I add with fresh fruit, either strawberries or marion berries, and viola! Instant dairy free, gluten free, nut free sweet and healthy dessert covered in one!

  29. Karen Says:

    Get moving. Instead of sitting inside with the computer in the evenings, I’ve been working at getting up and going for a walk. Side benefit is I’m getting to know the neighbors!

  30. Elyse Sheppard Says:

    WE take zevia, a stevia based pop and add organic juices to make everything have less sugar. Very tasty!

  31. Terry Sofley Says:

    Having Celiac has changed my eating habits for the better already. In the things I bake I am using applesauce in place of part of the butter. Eating healthier in general and eating more meals, but smaller with less junk and fewer deserts. I am using less salt and that does take some getting used to but it is a must. I have already lost over 150 lb.

  32. Denise C Says:

    I love sweet tea but instead of adding a lot of sugar I add a little (1/2 tsp) sugar and sweeten the rest of the way with Stevia.

  33. Mary Cowin Says:

    I’ve learned to eat roasted kale as a snack, which gets more green vegetables in my diet.

  34. Amanda Says:

    I like to take an apple and bake it with cinnamon . I put done almond silk in it then too.. Sooo yummy! Like apple pie without the crust

  35. patricia Says:

    For me, I drink no soda pop as it just sucks calcium out of your bones!

  36. Cassie Says:

    Instead of taking all different drugs for hives doctors don’t understand I use extra virgin olive oil on the skin. It soothes the skin and blocks allergins that may be causing hives. Almost immediately hives are gone with organic material vs drugs.

  37. Sue Says:

    I drink iced tea instead of pop or any other sugary drink.

  38. Denise Says:

    Instead of soda I buy the flavored seltzer water and add fresh fruits to it, my favorite is lime seltzer and cherry seltzer and then I add lime slices and cherries to make my own cherry-lime-ade.

  39. Amanda bumgarner Says:

    Cucumber water instead of sweet sugary drinks. Simple, inexpensive and healthy!

  40. Rhonda Says:

    For a healthier chocolate treat, I take Plain Coconut Yogurt and mix in Chocolate Rice Protein Powder with a few drops of Liquid Stevia to satisfy my cravings without adding all the sugar or buying flavored yogurts.

  41. TXEdie Says:

    Almond milk (instead of milk) takes breakfast cereal to a new level — more calcium, fewer calories and a soft flavor that is delicious.

  42. Debi Says:

    I recently bought one of the fruit infusion pitchers for water because we needed to drink more water. It has greatly increased our water intake making us healthier. We have also started a garden to have fresh homegrown fruits & veggies.

  43. Tomi Says:

    I like to skip the heavy carbs. no potatoes, breads or pasta for me, they can be substituted by using veggies. I eat of lot of veggies and fish. My must have is a salad made of baby spinach instead of lettuce with more veggies on top with a tiny bit of dressing or a splash of lemon, lime or flavored vinegar. I season my salad with herbs or seasonings instead of a lot of dressing it adds color as well as taste. Last nights salad: baby spinach, tomato, cucumber, avocado, 3 olives, artichoke heart, red pepper, 2 chopped eggs, a bit of mozzarella, splashed with lime juice and sprinkled with creole seasoning! And that was my very flavorful dinner.

  44. Kristie Gardner Says:

    I try to eat more raw vegetables when I am craving chips or just want something to munch on. It is definitely better for you.

  45. Robin Says:

    used to start my day with two cups of coffee, as my family became healthier due to gluten intollerance and other allergies, i brought in more veggies and fruits. Now, each morning i can’t start my day without my spinach smoothie with frozen blueberries and strawberries, flax seed, a bit of water and whatever other fruit may be around to jazz it up a bit…kiwi’s are great…add a banana..but keep plenty of dental floss or toothpicks on hand for afterward. Not only do you eat better, but you are proteccting your teeth at the same

  46. Stacey Says:

    I spread a 35 calorie herb cheese wedge on my bread instead of butter.

  47. Barbara Kirch Says:

    I use sweet potatoes or yams instead of white potatoes, and top them with Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I also make sweet potato fries on the grill with just a touch of olive oil, salt, and prepper!

  48. Eileen Says:


  49. Chanel Hester Says:

    Instead of adding eggto any recipe I use 1 Tablespoon milled flaxseed and 3 Tablespoons water. I also might switch it up and use 1/4 cup organic applesauce.

  50. Kim Says:

    I use almond butter instead of peanut butter! It has more protein and less fat!

  51. Cara Says:

    A better for you tip is to saute in water instead of dousing vegetables in oil.

  52. Michelle Says:

    I strive to make everything I eat healthy, but allow myself a daily treat that I truly love…like chocolate!

  53. Venessa Says:

    2nd entry

  54. Erin Lane Says:

    I make pizza crust with rice instead of flour. It seems to use a more wholesome version of the rice then the flour. That’s Better for Me! Can’t wait to try those chips!

  55. Amanda Says:

    I make myself really strong unsweetened ice tea..Usually green tea flavor but sometimes I’ll throw in mint flavor or peach! With lots of ice- oh I m happy!!!

    I make an eggless version of egg salad using chickpeas instead of eggs and brown spicy or dijon mustard instead of mayo.

  57. T. Earp Says:

    I have cut out most soda out of my diet and drink more water instead.

  58. julie Says:

    my better for you tip is to make brocoli slaw. It comes all premaid in the grocery store and if you add nuts, seeds and craisins you have an instant healthy meal!

  59. cindy w. Says:

    I use yougurt instead of sour cream for topping on a baked potatoe.

  60. Ashley Says:

    I place a tablespoon or two of flax seed meal in my yogurt to add extra fiber and omega 3s in my diet. It gives a great nutty flavor that wards of cookie cravings.

  61. Cassandra Says:

    I always drink fruit smoothies.

  62. TXEdie Says:

    Almond milk is gluten-free, lactose-free and higher in calcium than cow’s milk — PLUS, it’s lower calorie and has a higher calcum content. Finally, it’s delicious! I won’t use anything else on my morning cereal. 🙂

  63. Mary Says:

    The Best Tip? Read all of the comments before your own. I’ve seen some excellent ideas posted here and in my other favorite celiac/gluten free blogs. Those who have hit the ground running before me have kept me from scraping my own knees. Thank you from the bottom of my healthy intestines!!!
