I’m pleased to report that I’ve been trying some new foods out these days…doing a little test run of products…and finding some gems!
I’m pretty picky when I read those ingredient lists. So, my basic requirements are as follows:
- must have some protein
- must be gmo-free
- must be low in sugar and sodium
- no agave
- no soy
- still tasty!
So, here’s Part 1 of what I’ve found…
I am seriously addicted to their Quite Cheezy flavor. The Chipotle flavor is also delicious if you like a little spice to your food.
These are great to take on the go – easy, healthy, and completely guilt-free. With only a few fantastic ingredients, they clock in at 100 calories, 4g of protein per serving, and 7g of fat (1.5g saturated). Sodium is higher than I’d like at 260mg, but kind of worth it. 😉
I’m also loving Lydia’s Organics Kale Krunchies. I get the Mega Green flavor, which has a little kick to them. For the same serving size, these have only 50 calories, 3g of fat (.5g saturated), 80mg of sodium, and 2g of protein.
Both options are raw, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, and organic.
Lydia’s Organics also makes some tasty grain-free crackers. The Luna Nori Crackers are delicious on their own or with avocado spread on them.
Each serving (3 crackers) is 140 calories, 6g of fat (1g saturated), 120mg of sodium, and a whopping 5g of fiber and 6g of protein.
These are also gluten-free, raw, organic, and vegan.
All fats in these products are coming from heart healthy sources – nuts and seeds. Most, if not all, of these items should be available at your Whole Foods. Or click on the pics to buy online!
And make sure to check back tomorrow for Part 2!
