This summer stock your cabinets with healthy snacks that your family can grab on the go or while they hang around the house. Kids love to munch as they play games and socialize the summer away. At the pool, at the park, even at work, your family will benefit from these great tasting, healthy snacks. Handfulls, Hope & Sesame, Mozaics, and Veggicopia are easy to take with wherever you are this summer.
These snacks will take you by surprise because they are almonds wrapped in chips. Now a favorite healthy snack is next level with intense flavor combinations. Handfulls are made with natural, recognizable ingredients that are gluten-free, certified-kosher, and non GMO. Their product line spans sweet and salty snacks, mostly nuts, or confection based. Try one and see if you can stop after one handful! Crrrunch Bites are the chip covered almonds in great flavors, and Fusions are trail mixes. Some Fusions even have Crrrunch bites in the mix.
These Handfulls healthy snacks are addictive! I love them and so do my children. The Crrrunch Bites are low in sugar so I do not feel guilty about grabbing them as a snack. The Fusions have more sugar, but they are delicious. My favorite was the Fusions: Denali Mountain Mix. It has sweet and spicy glazed pecans, Fuji and Gala apple chips, orange infused cranberries, and tart cherries. It was amazing and is perfect to carry in your backpack or bag this summer as a quick pick me up. My son takes a bag of Crrrunch Bites to work as a snack through out the day so he keeps his energy level up between meals. Plus it helps him not give in to the temptation of snacking on the fast food where he works.
About Hope & Sesame
Hope & Sesame has created a delectable healthy snack made from organic sesame seeds. Now you can drink your sesame seeds in a delicious, nutritious beverage called sesamemilk! Drink it alone or add it to cereal, smoothies, or your coffee. Sesamemilk is gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan. The Sesame seeds are organically raised on a farm, then cultivated and harvested using sustainable farming processes. Before you get it in your glass it is fortified with their proprietary Sesamein protein in state-of-the-art facilities.
I try to maintain a very low sugar, dairy free diet. I normally drink almond milk, but was happy to try another alternative. This organic sesame milk is thick and delicious. I use the unsweetened original in my ice coffee, and the kids drink the other flavors. Plus I use them as a special treat. Last night my family dished out ice cream after dinner. I cannot have that, but a cup of Hope & Sesame Chocolate Sesamemilk really hit the spot. It is so good. The sesame seeds have a nice, sweet flavor that comes across. I am glad I can keep this healthy snack in the fridge for the kids. Plus I can leave the unopened ones in my pantry until I need them.
Mozaics are a healthy snack made from organic green peas, organic yellow peas, and organic black beans. These veggie chips are popped not fried or baked and they offer more protein and fiber per serving than other chips. Say goodbye to empty calories and get real nutrition from real veggies. These popped chips are lightly brushed with organic extra olive oil, then tossed in seasonings to make them the perfect snack to munch on.
The Mosaics organic popped chips were the crowd favorite in my house. At family game night the kids were passing the bags around. Then a day or so later, I saw we are out of Mozaics now. All three of my kids ate them with pleasure. I was happy to know they were eating a snack that wasn’t junk. They were eating peas and beans and getting a wonderful source of protein. These healthy snacks were so flavorful and yummy to eat. They offer many great flavors like Salsa, BBQ, Sea Salt, Cheddar, and Sour Cream and Onion.
Veggicopia Greek Green Olives are made by Copious Brands. This brand guarantees on-the-go snacks that are made with real ingredients. They are high protein, high fiber foods, with no artificial preservatives, low calories, and low in sugar. These olives are firmer than black olives, and an ideal snack anytime. Since they are a natural source of antioxidant nutrition with only 50 calories, they are the perfect snack to take along for anyone. Plus they are minimally processed with olive oil and just a touch of salt.
These Veggicopia Olives are so easy to bring in my purse because they are pre-portioned into one serving bags. I do not have to scoop them out into a snack bag or container. Therefore they are easy and so nutritionally rich. Since they are small I can carry multiple packs with me and share with friends who need some protein and energy to make it through the day. These are great for lunch boxes or to toss in the beach or pool bag too!
