everybody flip for national chip and dip day

Everybody Flip National Chip & Dip Day

round these parts, when it’s time to celebrate, out come the chips and dip. it’s such a perfect combo they had to dedicate one day a year to it just to celebrate. so happy national chip and dip day!

chips and dip are about as american as you can get. back in the day, making dip for your chips meant opening up a packet of lipton’s onion soup mix and adding it to a tub of sour cream. some people got a bit fancy and added cream cheese to thicken up the dip, others added chives and red pepper. it was the beginning of an all-american favorite and the genesis of a snacking tradition.

where’s the dip?

the superbowl wouldn’t be the same without your favorite dip. christmas would be amiss without dip. birthdays and new year’s just wouldn’t have the same crunch without the necessary dip.

from onion dip came veggie dip, spinach dip, cheese dip, guacamole, hummus, bean dip, salsa, artichoke dip, roasted red pepper dip, crab dip, shrimp dip, and more. once we got a taste for dips, there was no stopping us. now dipping is a favorite pastime and a traditional way to celebrate and snack.

chip and dip responsibly!

but aren’t you glad you can still chip and dip without blowing your diet? with i won! organic protein chips you can. we’re all about being part of the chip-and-dip tradition but with a twist. i won! organics is part of a new generation of snacks and our chips are healthy! when you open up a bag of i won! protein chips, and dip into one of our wholesome recipes, you’ll experience a whole new way of snacking. our chips constitute a healthy micro-meal that will fit well with your macros and complement your diet.

how sweet is your love for mango salsa?

How Sweet is Your Love for Mango Salsa

dips are made for sharing and are a tantalizing way to cozy up to someone special for some sweet lovin! so grab a bag or two of i won! protein chips and tuck into this delicious mango salsa from i won! organics ambassador megan tossi.

i won! ambassador: megan tossi (@thenuttycrohnie)
lifestyle: student, fitness enthusiast, crohn’s sufferer
favorite i won! chips: sea salt

following a healthy lifestyle is often a choice but sometimes it’s a necessity as in the case of i won! organics ambassador megan tossi. diagnosed with crohn’s disease at a very young age, megan found traditional medicine only aggravated her condition.

i have tons of determination and love to prove others wrong. despite all this, my life was a wreck. i could barely eat or drink anything. i couldn’t keep food in because of how much pain it gave me. all i wanted to do was exercise because it helped me feel better. but i began to notice that i grew tired faster, and surfing became way harder for me. this realization depressed me. surfing is something i really enjoy.

so she turned to holistic healing and has found a way to manage her disease and live life the way she wants to – surfing, skateboarding, weightlifting, playing basketball, and creating delicious recipes for her instagram followers like this one for mango salsa.

I changed my mindset and am starting to enjoy life more again.

sweet mango salsa

organic ingredients

  • 1 cup of diced tomato
  • 1 diced mango
  • 1 diced jalapeño without seeds
  • 2 handfuls of cilantro
  • ¼ cup of lime juice (2 limes)
  • 1 tsp of honey
  • 2 pinches of salt

preparation

  • Consume with the world’s best protein chips! @iwonorganics

that #iwonfeeling

living with crohn’s is a daily struggle, but megan wakes up every morning with determination that she will get stronger and healthier. she’s found strength in the things she loves and comfort from holistic medicine. for megan, that #iwonfeeling comes from:

  • drumming for my church and experiencing the beauty of the worship.
  • i also love seeing my lifting gains.
  • having a day free of pain due to my Crohn’s.
  • catching a dope wave is such a thrill!
