Who loves snacks? (everyone raise your hand) Of course you do – we all get that afternoon rumble and instead of starving yourself until dinner (don’t do that!), grab a snack – but hold up – choose wisely. Because obviously all snacks are not created equal. Some are salty, some are sweet – but only a few are what we call skinny (under 150 calories)!
Here are 3 of my current favorites (p.s. there’s a GIVEAWAY at the end of this post):
The Beanitos Crunch Mac n’ Cheese are a new discovery for me and I am beyond obsessed. They are super crunchy, packed full of flavor and loaded with fiber which keeps you full. They are actually made with white navy beans which provides 4g of protein per serving, as well. A few other perks – they are gluten-free, non-gmo, low sodium, low glycemic and did I mention they taste awesome? And they’re only 130 calories per serving! So put down the Cheetos – and head to Costco in the Pacific NW and Texas Regions or Amazon to grab a bag (available in 21oz and snack size).
I became a SkinnyPop fan girl once my friend, Kelley Wentworth (Survivor Season 29 & 31!), gave me a few bags to try. Ummmmmm…..so it ends up I dig it…like a lot. The White Cheddar is a pantry staple, but the Dusted Dark Chocolate is so damn good. Seriously. And it’s also gluten-free, non gmo…and you will be surprised by this – dairy free! So at 150 calories per serving, it’s the perfect afternoon (or evening) snack! Available at most grocery stores including Costco!
In our household, we claim to be granola connoisseurs, especially my 3 year old – who lives for those delicious nutty clusters. We’ve tried various snacks of this nature, but it’s hard to find just the right balance between texture, sweetness and nutrition. So when WholeMe contacted me to try their Clusters we were game. To be honest, my initial interest in the brand was their story. WholeMe was founded by two women who met lifting weights (love!). They both had a culinary background and a passion for clean food – so it was a perfect match (which also turned out to be successful with a huge Kickstarter campaign). So I loved their drive…and the Clusters? Holy smokes – they are unreal! They taste incredibly pure with significant flavor notes. You can add them to anything – but our favorite is right out of the bag. :) Highly recommend Almond Coconut! And here’s the best part – they are grain-free, gluten-free, naturally sweetened, paleo, soy free, non gmo and only 140 calories per serving! Available HERE!
