The countdown to summer is on! Today on Good Food Friday, I shared healthy summer essentials.
Summer snack essential
Bada Bean Bada Boom is a roasted broad bean brand that makes high protein, high fiber vegan crunchy bean snacks. Enjoy them on their own or incorporate into recipes – here I’ve used the Zesty Ranch flavor as a salad crouton swap and the sweet cinnamon and cocoa dusted in a yogurt snack bowl. The Boom Box showcases all 13 flavors from savory to sweet – you can find them at BadaBeanSnacks.com, on Amazon and at Aldi.
Summer baking essential
Nature’s Eats Nut Flours are a summer baking essential. They’re vegan, gluten-free, low carb and 100% plant-based. Compared to traditional processed flours, which are bleached and provide empty calories with no real nutrition, Nature’s Eats Nut Flours add protein, heart healthy fats and filling fiber to recipes. I use the cashew flour in my strawberry crumble bars. You can find Nature’s Eats nut flours on Amazon and at Walmart.
Summer dessert essential
Next we have THE low sugar dessert of summer. Enlightened Ice Cream is a perfectly portioned, low sugar, feel-good ice cream. It’s high in protein AND FIBER.. with a creamy texture. My favorite is the new brownies and cookie dough flavor but the Vanilla Dark Chocolate Almond is the most popular. You can order them at EatEnlightened.com or on Amazon to ship directly to your door or find them locally at Publix and Harris Teeter.
Summer supplement essentials
Finally, Super Smart is a great one-stop shop for all of your healthy summer supplement needs. Super Smart is a 28-year-old brand with over 400 products developed based on the latest scientific research – including their unique melatonin spray and vitamin D3 spray. Their brand is focused on innovation and excellence, and constantly improving product quality. You can find them at US.Supersmart.com and on Amazon.
