Healthy Snacking is important when you’re constantly on the go. It’s so easy to fall into the habit of snacking on unhealthy food when you don’t have time to be picky about what you’re going to eat.
I like to be health-conscious when it comes to snacking. I make my own energy bars or purchase already made snack at my local organic health food store. Recently I have been snacking onPower Snacks (Blueberry Hemp) and Navitas superfood Trail Mix.
The new Blueberry Hemp was added to Navitas award-winning line of Navitas Power Snacks recently, joining Cacao-Goji and Citrus-Chia. In addition to hemp powder and dried blueberries Blueberry Hemp Power Snacks are made with organic chia seeds, maca, lucuma, camu and maqui, as well as other wholesome raw foods including sesame and sunflower seeds and cashews.
The bite-sized cubes have a delicious flavor, healthy whole-food appearance, and rich chewy texture. There are no refined sugar, preservatives and artificial colors and flavors in these snacks. They are certified organic and certified gluten-free, and are GMO-free and dairy-free.
The Trail mix contains Goji Berries (a great source of antioxidants), Goldenberries (remarkable source of protein and bioflavonoids), Mulberries (contains the antioxidant resveratrol, protein, Vitamin C and iron). Cashews provide a high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids – plus magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and protein. Cacao Nibs, a raw form of chocolate that does not melt, completes the unique mix. It’s a rich source of vitamins, minerals, beta-carotene, zinc, chromium, magnesium and antioxidant flavonoids.
The company offers two varieties: Goji-Mulberry-Goldenberry; and 3 Berry-Cacao Nib-Cashew.
I also really like the packaging. The re-sealable pouches allow me to pack snack sized portions for the day, while keeping the remaining snacks fresh until I’m ready to eat them.
