Confession: I’m a complete sucker for snacks. Whenever I hit the market (at least three times per week), I giddily glide down the aisles looking for foods I haven’t yet tried. Discovering something new, healthy and wildly tasty for the entire family is a huge treat for me (often times it’s all about the little things). Below are five faves – they’re all gluten-free, low-fat, non-GMO (meaning no genetically modified organisms), and big time kid/grown-up approved — perfect additions to the lunchbox, desktop drawer and ideal any time of day. Dive in…
- Bare Snacks Banana Chips: Love the ingredient list – just baked ’til crispy bananas, that’s all. Also not to be missed are the Apple Chips, next on my list…
- Bare Snacks Apple Chips: Available in three lip-smacking flavors – Fuji Apple, Granny Smith, and Cinnamon Apple.
- Imlakesh Organics Macambo Beans: Packed with protein and fiber, these crunchy little numbers from the Amazon Rainforest will knock your socks off!
- Flora Baobites Superfruit Snacks: As a hardcore gummy-candy lover, these are a delicious, much healthier alternative. Made with Baobab (a wild-harvested superfruit), they’re loaded with electrolytes, antioxidants and Vitamin C.
- Pop Corners Popped Corn Chips: Every single one of their gluten-free flavors are a delight! I’m particularly fond of Smokin’ Jalapeño White Cheddar, Cheddar Feel Good and Carnival Kettle.
- World Peas Fava Crisps: Another grab-n-go, crispity-crunchity hit with 4 grams of protein per serving; the Vinegar & Sea Salt are a hit in our home.
