Every now and then, I come across a product that just makes me extra happy. In this category, I figured I would share them with you all. This particular post features three of my favorite healthy snacks…
The first is a little box of crackers called ‘Mary Gone Crackers‘. I like to think it’s named this because there must be some crack in the ingredients, that’s how good these are. They are organic, kosher, non-GMO, whole grain, vegan, dairy free, wheat free, gluten free, no hydrogenated oils, and 0 trans fat. Now after all that, you’re probably thinking they must be little pieces of cardboard, but TRUST me they are so good.
They are made with brown rice, quinoa, flax and sesame seeds, and even contain 450mg of omega-3 fatty acids per serving. The combination of grains and seeds leave such a rich nutty taste in your mouth. And they come in flavors like onion, caraway, black pepper, and herb. They are all equally delicious! I also just read they have a new jalapeno flavor with pumpkin, poppy, and sunflower seeds! I eat these with any kind of dip, but my favorite is to put them in my sandwiches and wraps
You can find these in most health food stores and they retail for about $5, but Wholefoods has them on sale right now at 2 for $7!
My next healthy snack product are the sprouted grain tortillas made by ‘Maria and Ricardos Tortilla Factory‘. I’ve been on a bit of a wrap kick, but have been in search for the best low carb, high fiber, lower gluten options. Sprouted grains are really good for you, and could take me an entire post to get into. But basically they have numerous health benefits, contain natural plant enzymes which help with digestion, and contain decreased gluten and increased dietary fiber. Check out the link below for more in-depth detail on the benefits:
The main reason I love these wraps is the texture. They are a little bit chewy and thin, which I like, and super tasty. You really can’t go wrong with these! They retail for approx $4 and the brand also makes them in organic white flour, low carb, low fat, and whole wheat. Don’t forget to throw in some Mary’s Gone Crackers in them!
My last, but not least, featured product are the sriracha flavored veggie chips by ‘The Real Deal‘. If you enjoy the taste of this wonderful hot sauce, you will LOVE these. The taste is complex and so addicting. They are all natural, gluten free, kosher, low fat, and vegan and contain 1 1/2 veggie servings per 1oz of chips. What can be better than snacking on super yummy chips AND getting your veggie servings in, I mean cmon! Aside from the health benefits and amazing taste, they are shaped really cute like little mini cups which can be good for dipping I guess. I honestly don’t need anything else with these, they are a party in my mouth! They retail for approx $3 and I find them in my local health food market, but check their link for retailers near you…
Enjoy these snacks, live healthy, eat clean and feel great!
