Healthy Snacks…..Yes there really is such a thing! With so many manufacturers putting “all natural ingredients” on their labels it can be very confusing for the consumer, I have seen many products with this label and they were loaded with sugar, sodium and other ingredients. One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they do not prepare for those hunger pangs that come unexpectedly even though we know they are going to eventually hit us throughout the day, it is easy to grab whatever is right there to satisfy that hunger. This is the reason why it is best to keep on hand a few snacks that you know are healthy and not loaded with the wrong ingredients, like high fructose corn syrup, artificial and processed additives just to name a few.
Two of my favorite and very convenient snacks are Artisana Organic Raw Cacoa Bliss and Almond Butter. They come in individual little packets that are just the right size. I put them on all natural organic rice cakes and fruit, they are delicious and very satisfying. They come in many different nut flavors and can be added to smoothies too! Keep them in your purse, desk or office break room with your favorite all natural organic crackers.
You can find these at your local health food store or online. I am lucky, my local health food store here in New Jersey, The Health Stop carries my two favorite flavors and they are always happy to order additional flavors and larger jars for me too!
