10 Organic Snacks That are Actually Healthy

Snacking is a bad habit that we’ve grown used to but what makes it worse, is that finding healthy snacks is really hard. Nearly every snack in the super market is made from artificial flavors, additives, colors, GMOs and more. While we think fruits, seeds, veggies and nuts make the best snacks, here are some store-bought snacks that are actually healthy. Just keep in mind that they should be eaten in moderation.

yummy-earth-lollipops

1. Organic Pops by YumEarth

An old kids favorite, lollipops are becoming a rarity among kids candy. This is because most of the lollipops are completely artificial. YummyEarth introduced a lollipop that we can actually call healthy. Although, high in sugar, these lollipops are completely natural. And from what we hear it is completely delicious as well. Our only concern is the brown rice syrup, but since it is not the main ingredient, the content of it is relatively small it leaves little to be concerned about for now. Typically, we’d say be cautioned if you see “natural flavors” but this company actually means natural.

Ingredients:
Organic evaporated cane juice, organic brown rice syrup, non-gmo citric acid (from beet sugar), natural flavors, organic black carrots, organic black currant, organic apple, organic carrot, organic pumpkin, ascorbic acid.

Features:
✓ Gluten-free, ✓Peanut-free, ✓Dairy-free, ✓Fat-free, ✓Vegan. No artificial dyes, certified organic, real fruit extracts, tree-nut free.

These squeezable packs may seem like something that only parents pack their kids. However, these packs are extremely convenient to bring anywhere. Just pop it in a backpack on a hiking trip or put it in your briefcase to work. It is a bit high in sugar, but the sugar is all natural and as long as you limit yourself to one per day, it can actually be a healthy replacement for a snack. There are plenty of fruity flavors to choose from.

macrobar

7. Granola and Coconut Bar by Macrobar

It’s tough to find a gluten-free bar that is actually made of high quality ingredients.  Macrobar is one of the few bars that we found that accomplished both. It’s great tasting with simple ingredients and great flavor. This is our favorite flavor, and it is the lowest out of three in sugar. However, it is still a bit high with 11g.
