Healthy Snacks

Healthy snacking isn’t all about calorie counting. I’m talking about snacks that actually curb those afternoon cravings, and are packed with ingredients that are good for you. Skip the doughnut holes, gummy bears, and cupcakes. You’ll want to try these crunchy pea snacks, bacon jerky bites, and a nut butter that I get up in the middle of the night for!

Made from the nutrient-packed copra, or meat of the coconut, our toasted coconut chips are a delicious snack that provides loads of energy. The meat is sliced out of mature coconuts then gently toasted until golden brown with a dash of sugar and salt. The toasting process brings out the natural sweetness of the coconut meat and turns it from white to golden brown.

MaraNatha Almond Butter

MaraNatha

I ate the entire jar of MaraNatha’s almond butter in one week. And I don’t even like nut butters or toast. But I’ve been obsessed with the organic toast from Whole Foods with the MaraNatha’s almond butter for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Heck, I’ve even gotten up in the middle of the night to eat a spoonful or two of the almond butter. It’s that good.

MaraNatha is one of America’s largest producers of high-quality natural and organic nut butters with no trans fats, hydrogenated oils or preservatives.

Crispy Broccoli Snacks

Crispy Crunchy Broccoli Florets

Using a common Southeast Asian method, these veggies are “vacuum fried” in palm oil. This produces a snack with a reduced fat content and no residual grease — to keep snacking fingers clean and happy. Perfect in place of croutons or for dipping, but I like them straight from the bag.

From Trader Joe’s

 

Pretzel Crisps

Pretzel Crisps

Pretzel Crisps is a modern twist on an old favorite snack. All the flavor & crunch of a regular pretzel, but lighter, crispier, more versatile, and easily addicting! Loving the sriracha & lime, buffalo wing, and everything flavors.
