I just returned from the 2016 Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo where there were hundreds of food vendors promoting their new products. One of my missions was to find fun on-the-go nutritious snacks full of real, wholesome ingredients to share with my readers.
Here are 5 yummy snacks that you can take with you anywhere...
A chewy protein bar with simple ingredients: egg whites, fruits and nuts. No added sugar, artificial sweeteners, or other unnatural ingredients. Gluten-free, dairy-free and soy free. Nuts and fruit are blended to create a soft consistency generally well tolerated on a low roughage diet.
Popped sorghum is a naturally gluten-free snack that looks a lot like mini popcorn kernels. Popped sorghum is a terrific alternative to popcorn for someone with a corn intolerance or allergy. Plus, the smaller and softer kernels might be a bit gentler on the GI tract.
Lightly crunchy and flaky roasted chickpea snacks that taste good. Single serving packages make them an easy on-the-go source of protein, fiber and iron. Gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO. Not appropriate for a low roughage diet.
Ready-to-eat oatmeal fruit squeezes packed w/ grains & fruit bites and available in 5 different flavors. Gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO snack for balanced nutrition on-the-go. Its soft consistency makes it a great option for people on a low roughage/low fiber diet.
Dehydrated beet "chips" are a naturally sweet and crunchy snack full of nutrients. Available in three flavors - plain, salty, and sweet. Gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO.
