Contributed By Emily Silberstein
The search for a healthy and satisfying snack can be never ending, and while it’s sometimes delicious, other times it can disappoint. Luckily, the ChopChop team has been busy sampling, and we’ve found some of the best new snacks that are sure to satiate your hunger.
You might not think brown rice, almonds, flax and sesame seeds would make a yummy cracker, but they do! Blue Diamond Artisan Nut-Thins are tasty, crunchy crackers that are also gluten free. Sure to satisfy your salty cravings, these Nut-Thins are actually low in sodium. They make a perfect snack stacked with veggies, cheese or dunked in your favorite hummus or dip.
There’s nothing quite like sitting down to your favorite movie with a bowl of popcorn in hand. Earth Balance popcorn has that buttery movie popcorn taste, without the excessive calories. The aged white cheddar flavor is equally delicious, and both are dairy free.
Those who prefer sweet rather than savory will go crazy for Earth Balance P.B. Popps. These peanut butter covered crunchy treats make a great afterschool snack or dessert. They do have sugar in them, but the amount isn’t bad for a sweet indulgence.
