Snack Time

Who doesn’t like snacks? My kids and I love snacks! When you are an “on the go” mom, you depend on snacks in your bag. I’d like to shake a couple of my favourite snacks that I carry in my bag.

Somersault Snack Co. Celebrate the power of seeds.  Great for those with nut allergies! Somersaults are crunchy nuggets baked with sunflower seeds and toasted grains. Their #1 ingredient is Sunflower seeds. They have as much protein as almonds with half the fat, a good source of fiber and vitamin e.  This great nut free snack has just 140 calories and an abundance of flavour. They come in cinnamon crunch, salty pepper, sea salt, dutch cocoa and sante fe salsa.

Facts about sunflowers that you probably didn’t know:

  • 7x more folate than almonds, pecans,
  • 50% more protein than almonds
  • 76% of your daily vitamin e
  • 4x the antioxidant of blueberries

How do Somersaults compare to other common snacks?

  • As much protein but half the fat of a serving of almonds with fewer calories
  • 1/3 the carbs of an energy bar
  • 95% less sugar than an energy bar
  • Non- GMO

You can pick these up at your local grocery store or visit them online to order:

My girlfriend introduced me to Rockwells Organic Toasted Coconut Chips. All I can say is I am addicted. I order boxes at a time! So yummy! They are the all-natural way to enjoy a sweet treat. They can be eaten straight out of the bag or incorporated into some of your favorite recipes. They can also be used as a topping on yogurt or blended in a vanilla protein shake. Rockwells coconut chips are:

  • Kosher Certified
  • Non- refined sugar
  • High in Fiber
  • Kosher
  • Free of Gluten
  • Non GMO
  • Vegan

I have not been able to find them at the local grocery store or health food stores, so I purchase mine online at  http://www.rockwellswholefoods.com. They are $4.99/bag, flat shipping rate and fast shipping time. Try them, I guarantee you will love them!

Enjoy
