A Crunch for Every Occasion
You’re in the grocery store looking for a snack that is good for you and your family. Of course, the kids want chips and candy, but you want to include a few healthier snacks in their snack time. Maybe something everyone in the family will enjoy?
My clients ask me this question all the time. So whether you are binge-watching Netflix or having a picnic in the park, I have included a few of my favorite snacks below.
Please note I only recommend products I would use myself and all opinions expressed here are my own. This post may contain affiliate links that at no additional cost to you, I may earn a small commission.
For a savory crunch, try TERRA Real Vegetable Chips. My favorite is the Mediterranean Garlic & Herbs flavor. TERRA has combined a roundup of tasty and colorful (thanks to a dip in beet juice) root veggies (Taro, Sweet potato, Batata, Parsnip). These chips are low in sodium and have no added sugar. The delectable flavor will please both kids and adults. You can find them here.
For a sweet crunch, try Bare Baked Crunchy Apple Chips. The only ingredient in this snack is apples!! Add these to your kids’ bento boxes or your desk draw for a mid-afternoon munchie attack. Healthy takeaway simple ingredients and a good source of fiber. You can find them here.
Craving a salty crunch? Then you need to try Seapoint Farms Edamame Dry Roasted Lightly Salted Snack Packs. This snack hits all the bases. It is low in sodium, high in protein, low in carbs, and high in fiber! Have these on hand for a quick snack on the go! You can find them here.
When you are feeling spicy, try Siete Grain Free Tortilla Chips Jalapeno Lime. If you are looking for a delicious chip that is dairy-free, paleo, vegan, non-GMO, and gluten-free snack, this is for you! Or, if you are just looking for a spicy crunch, try this Siete chip. You can find them here.
To wash all these chips down, try one of my favorite mocktails Polar 100% Natural Seltzer Water Orange Vanilla! Grab your prettiest class, slice an orange, and place it in your glass. Then pour the Vanilla Orange seltzer over the orange. The taste of this beverage is decadent!! You may need to share this with the family. Find it here.
I worked as a grocery store dietitian for many years. One of my favorite parts of my job was going to the trade shows and seeing (and tasting) the new products. As a result, I am always on the search for the next food/ snacking product.
