I hope you’re doing well. I’ve been doing pretty okay, just been trying new things and getting stuff together. For a while I’ve been in search of some healthy or relatively healthy snacks. You see I have a pretty quick metabolism and I get hungry quite often between meals, even though I eat three main meals a day. So in between I try the eat snacks that are good for me. Sometimes I do a fruit bowl, an oatmeal/fruit/chia pudding, homemade cookies or popcorn. I soon realized that I didn’t really have any savory snacks for when I wasn’t feeling for something sweet. Also with my busy schedule makes it a little difficult to make my own healthy snacks along with making my 3 main meals each day since I hardly eat out. So I am going share my favorite on the go snacks that I found in the supermarkets so far this year.
Herr’s Potato Popped Chips
These are Gluten Free and only contain – Potato Flour, Potato Starch, Sunflower and/or canola oil, Rice Flour and Sea salt.
I like these because they are made from simple and natural ingredients and are quite yummy (a little addictive too lol).
Herr’s Original Kettle Chips and Herr’s Boardwalk Salt& Vinegar
These are tasty and do not contain mono sodium glutamate which is a huge plus for me as I am allergic.
The “Original” is Gluten Free and contains the following ingredients: potatoes, vegetable oil (one or more of the following: corn, cottonseed, sunflower) and salt.
The “Salt & Vinegar” flavor however is not Gluten Free and they’ve added lactose, sodium diacetate, malted barley flour, citric acid, and natural flavor.
PopCorners Cinema Style
I actually only tried these this week but I think these are going to be one of my favourites. When I open the bag there was air like so many bags but I was pleasantly surprise to see that the bag was packed around 1/2 – 3/4 of the bag. It did say 5 oz lol. From first glance I think I can stretch these over the course or 3 days maybe 4. They taste similar to white cheddar popcorn even though they don’t contain cheese. Yet sorta like a natural chip.
Ingredients:Yellow corn, sunflower oil, organic whey powder, maltodextrin, salt, organic butter powder (organic butter, organic skim milk powder), natural flavour.
Bermudez Jumbies Animal Crackers
Sooo…I saw these in Massy about a week ago and had recently picked up a pack of the original the week in front. These used to be a childhood favorite but apparently I still like them. So when I saw them on special I grabbed them, I didn’t even realise that there is now a chocolate flavor until I popped some in my mouth. I wasn’t in the mood for chocolate at the time but they are pretty good you can still taste a bit of the original recipe along with the chocolate. I find it annoying when there is a new chocolate flavor to an original recipe and it tastes completely different, fake or like a trying to be chocolate cookie, but that might just be me. LOL
Ingredients: wheat flour, sugar, palm and soybean oil, glucose syrup, slat, whey (milk), leavening agents (sodium bicarbonate, ammonium bicarbonate, sodium acid pyrophosphate), artificial flavours, sodium metabisulphite. (Produced in a facility that uses peanuts and tree nuts)
*I’m not sure how healthy these are but they are a quick and sweet snack.
Oh btw I guess these guys decided they want to become an “item” lol
Nature Valley Oat ‘n Honey
These are quick, sweet and relatively healthy snack and I also really like the dark chocolate to these. I even tried a pack with milk and it was yummy cereal.
Ingredients: Whole Grain Oats, Sugar, Canola Oil, Rice Flour, Honey, Salt, Brown Sugar Syrup, Baking Soda, Soy Lecithin, Natural Flavor.
(Contains: Soy May Contain: Almond, Peanut, Peacan)
Mornflake Orchard Oat Granola
I love these!! There are different types and I occasionally switch them up. Sometimes I make puddings, cold cereals, hot cereal, fruit/granola cups or just eat it on the go. It’s filling, nutritious and energizing. I also love getting the one with the almonds and then adding fresh fruit to it (apples bananas sometimes strawberries).
Ingredients: Mornflake Wholegrain OATFLAKES (63%), Sugar, Mixed Fruits & Seeds (12.5%) (Sultanas (6%), Dried Apple (3%) (contains Preservative SULPHUR DIOXIDE), Desiccated Coconut, Sunflower Seeds), Palm Oil†, Honey (2%), Apple Juice Concentrate, Natural Flavouring.
