Healthy Snack Ideas and Giveaway

Snacking is almost a must in our family. My young children love to snack in the afternoon, and I love to snack too. I don't feel bad about it at all, because we choose healthy snacks that fuel our bodies between meals, instead of just shoving extra calories in our mouths.

When I first heard of kale chips years ago, I thought, "ick." But, then a friend told me how much she loved them, and I thought, "maybe..." On a whim, I bought some one time, and after trying them, I thought, "Yum! Genius! Amazing!" If you haven't tried them yet, you should give them a shot, because not only are they an awesome alternative to regular fatty, unhealthy potato chips, they are insanely healthy!

Freshly Wild Kale Joy is a great brand for you to try your first bites of kale chips. Kale Joy is created by tossing fresh kale with chia seeds, quality spices, herbs, juices and nuts. It is then dehydrated to preserve its powerful nutrients. The result is a bag of crispy chips, full of flavor, that will satisfy your snack cravings.

Everyone will love the tasty crunch of Kale Joy, which is now available in three flavors: Must Eat Mesquite, Jazzy Sweet Mustard and Original Recipe. Even my children ask me for kale chips for snacks. Now how often does that happen with green leafy veggies? Shop for Kale Joy here or look for them at a store near you.

Another great snack choice, in moderation, is dried fruit. Funny Face Dried Cranberries are a lower sugar healthy snack. The 5 oz. resealable package is handy to have when you're on the go or with children, and the 1 oz. packages are perfect for snacks and lunches! Funny Face Dried Cranberries also have five times more fiber and 50% less sugar as compared to traditional dried cranberries. I just love that! 

And the taste is fantastic! You don't miss the sugar at all, which makes me wonder why there is so much in the traditional dried cranberries. These come in four varieties including: Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry, Choo Choo Cherry, Goofy Grape and Freckle Face Strawberry - fun names, delicious products and a great snacking option! Shop for them here.

 Plus, we are giving away (1) yummy sample pack of  Funny Face Dried Cranberries to (1) lucky winner!!
