Summer is here! Today I am sharing healthy summer snacks on Good Food Friday!
Healthy summer snacking fridge staple
The Fresh Cravings Hummus is super creamy made with a short list of high-quality whole food ingredients including Chilean extra virgin olive oil, chickpeas and savory tahini. It comes in a range of flavor including classic, honey jalapeno and everything bagel in 10-ounce tubs some family-sized 17-ounce tubs in the deli section of Walmart near the produce section where their famous never cooked or pasteurized refrigerated salsa is.
Next we have a better for you salty snack
The SaltMe! chips taste like any other potato chips so you wouldn’t know that they have 50% less sodium thanks to their secret ingredient – microsalt (the worlds smallest grain of salt – providing more saltiness with less sodium). keeping sodium consumption to less than 1500 mg per day is recommended for heart health by the American heart association but it can be hard to do for salty snack lovers. They come in 4 flavors – original, BBQ, Sour cream and onion and cheddar and sour cream. Find them on Amazon and Harris Teeter.
Another tasty summer snack for vegetarians or those looking to reduce their meat consumption
The Garden Inspirations line of plant-based foods by Farm Rich includes Breaded Zucchini Sticks, Cauliflower Bites and Brussels Sprouts, as well as plant-based BBQ Sliders and Meatballs. You can cook them straight in an air-fryer or in the oven. Find them at Publix, Walmart, Harris Teeter and Farmrich.com.
