IMG_1418I hear every day about someone looking for gluten free products or they have allergies to nuts or dairy or one of a dozen other things. I am so glad that I do not have any food allergies but am trying to eliminate gluten from my diet.  Just to be a bit healthier.  One of the problems is I love bread!

When I tried Breads From Anna® I thought I am not going to like this.  I tried some of the Gluten & Yeast free Banana Bread and it was great!  I loved the texture and how moist the bread was. I didn’t mention to Rex or Joey that it was gluten free and they loved it too. Not only is it gluten and yeast free it was corn, dairy, soy, nut and rice free. Great for people with food allergies.

I like that all of the products at  Breads From Anna® are high in protein and fiber and only sweetened with maple or honey. The ingredients used are all-natural, free of any additives or flavor enhancers.  Breads From Anna® has a great product line including mixes classic herb bread, pumpkin, pizza crust, pancake and many more mixes.

Anna Sobaski introduced her first mix in 2004, the Original Gluten, Soy, Nut, and Rice Free Bread Mix. Today Anna has developed a complete line of 12 baking mixes that are sold on-line and in hundreds of stores and bakeries all over the world. You can purchase Breads From Anna® at many local stores or you can purchase it HERE online.  You can connect with Breads From Anna® on Facebook.

IMG_1420Are you looking for ways to get more veggies in your daily meals? If you are trying to get your kids to eat more vegetables or you are trying to lose weight you will want to try Sneaky Chef Products.

I recently tried a few products from Sneaky Chef and they were really good tasting.  The first was  The Sneaky Chef Smooth Red Pasta Sauce It has 8 wholesome veggies added and you would never know.  This sauce tasted great you could eat it with just pasta or add it to another dish ~ like chicken parm or meatballs.

The next sauce I tried was  The Sneaky Chef Cheesy Red Pasta Sauce this had the 8 veggies but also had Parmesan & Romano cheese added to it.  My family liked both sauces and never knew it had all the extra vegetables added.

IMG_1419The last product my family tried was the The Sneaky Chef® Creamy No-Nut Butter that is made from naturally sweet and “nutty” tasting golden peas. It is a  peanut butter alternative, without a trace of peanuts, tree nuts, seeds, or soy! Here are a few of the features of this no- nut butter:

  • Produced in a nut-free facility
  • Great for nut-free schools
  • Soy free
  • No high fructose corn syrup
  • No hydrogenated oils
  • No artificial colors or flavors
  • Gluten free
  • BPA free jar

 

All of the Sneaky Chef Products tasted really good and my family loved them even the No-Nut Butter.  I used the No-Nut Butter in peanut butter cookies and they were eaten up as fast as ones with peanut butter.

The Sneaky Chef also has a number of cook books to help you find sneaky ways to add more healthy food to your families diet. If you want to purchase Sneaky Chef Products you can find them at many local stores including Woodmans and Piggly Wiggly or order them on line at NetGrocer.com.  You can connect with Sneaky Chef on Facebook.

crunch-pakI try to bring my lunch and snacks to work every day first to save money and second because the food I bring is healthier and taste better.  I am always looking for more interesting things to bring and I recently found Crunch Pak.  They have some great products.IMG_1410

Here is one of my favorite cut up apples in individual packages.  These are about 30 calories and are a great afternoon snack with yogurt or cheese.  They also have some packages that have caramel yum!!! It makes things so much more convenient and helps prevent me from going to the vending machine.

Crunch Pak has lots of good options they have Apple Snackers that include a variety of snacks – like one with apples, grapes and cheese.  I also noticed the last time I went to the store they salad kits – one is a Waldorf Kitz feature diced sweet & tart apples, goldenraisins, dried cranberries, candied walnuts & pecans,and Waldorf dressing. It comes with enough ingredients to make 4 1/2 cup servings. How easy would it be to add this to your meal and get more fruit in your diet.

You can find Crunch Pak at many local stores including Target, Walmart and Whole Foods.  You can also connect with Crunch Pak on Facebook.

Crunch Pak sent me some coupons to use to purchase my review items and I have 2 left that I would love to share with one of my readers. You must be 18+ and have a US mailing address.  Leave a comment on what you like to have for a snack.  Extra entry for following Crunch Pak on Facebook.

I am always on the look out for something health and something that taste good.  I recently tried some cookies from Natasha’s Health Nut Cookies.  They are all natural, gluten free, low-glycemic and diabetic safe. The Health Nut Cookies are made with almond flour.  They contain no Trans fat, artificial sweeteners and no refined grains.  I think these would be great for my Mom who is diabetic but still loves sweet.IMG_1230

Natasha’s Health Nut Cookies come in 3 great flavors.  My favorite is the Cranberry Orange it had lots of flavor.  It had lots of cranberries and even some coconut.  They reminded me of Thanksgiving – with all the great flavors.

There is also a Raisin Amaretto cookie – these were Rex’s favorite he loves raisins and there were lots of them in this almond flavored cookie.

The last one is the Vanilla Chocolate Chip – it has the prefect balance of Vanilla and Chocolate Chip.  Two flavors that are meant to be together.

If you are looking for some great tasting cookies Natasha’s has them whether you are diabetic or just looking for a healthy snack.  Once you try Natasha’s Healthy Nut Cookies you will be glad you did. You can order your cookies HERE online.  You can stay connected with Natasha’s Health Nut Cookies on Facebook.

dang_chips_logoI love coconut so when I found these Dang Coconut Chips I knew they would be good.  These chips are made from copra (meat of the coconut).  The meat is sliced out of mature coconuts and then toasted to a golden brown with a dash of sugar and salt. The roasting brings out the natural sweetness. IMG_1099

What I like about Dang Coconut Chips is that you don’t have to eat a lot to feel full.  Copra is high in fiber so you feel fuller faster.  I think they make a perfect after noon snack not only do they taste good they give you a a boost of energy too.  Dang Coconut Chips are vegan, gluten free, non – GMO, have no cholesterol and high in Lauic Acid.

I didn’t know how versatile coconuts are and how many uses there are for them.  The husks can be burned to produce electricity, the juice is delicious, light and packed with electrolytes, and the meat can be eaten raw for a snack, pressed into coconut milk, or toasted for a truly special experience.  Many cultures have been subsisting on coconuts for generations.

If you would like to buy a very satisfying snack you can purchase Dang Coconut Chips HERE online.  You can also find Dang at many local stores including Wholefoods and Thriftway.

In my search for things that are good for you and good tasting I found some great tasting chips called Beanfields. These chips are made out of beans.  Why beans?  There are many reasons why – here are just a few:

  • Beans are rich in nutrients including fiber and protein
  • Beans rarely cause an allergic food reaction
  • Beans are an affordable protein source
  • Beans fix nitrogen in the soil
  • Beans take less water to grow per pound than any other protein source

What did I like about Beanfields Healthier Snacks?  I liked the taste and distinctive crunch. They also come in some great tasting flavors including Nacho, Sea salt, Pico De Gallo, Salt N’ Pepper, and Unsalted. My favorite was the Pico De Gallo ~ it had just the right touch of spice for me.  You can eat them plain or try some salsa with your chips.

Beanfields chips are much better for you than regular chips they are a complete protein, have less fat, more fiber and complex carbohydrates. Here is a snack you can feel good about treating yourself too and eat anytime anywhere.

If you would like to purchase Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips you can do so at many local stores including Thriftway and Market of Choice.  You can also order them HERE online.  You can connect with Beanfields on Facebook.
