Delicious AND Healthy Summer Snacks

Who says healthy snacks have to taste like cardboard? Some new choices in snackage.

Yes, I'm a Certified Nutritional Consultant but I have always enjoyed potato chips. There I said it! So when I found these very hearty Jackson's Honest Potato Chips made with Organic Coconut Oil, I was anxious to try them. I currently use Nature's Approved Long Life Coconut Oil for cooking and baking, and it has really made a difference in my skin as well as helping to reduce belly fat. That's because coconut oil is highly stable for cooking and full of good medium chain triglycerides as well as lauric acid. So it was only natural for me to want to try these kettle style chips cooked in coconut oil. To see my favorite cooking oil, Nature's Approved EVO Coconut Oil, click HERE.

Jackson's Honest Potato Chips
These are made from organic potatoes and kettle cooked by hand in Colorado. My favorite varieties are Sea Salt, and Mango Chili Lime which has a nice spicy kick. They use only organic coconut oil in the cooking process for a snack food that is gluten free and vegan. Coconut Oil was an essential part of the company's son's diet and helped him recover from his illness. A portion of the sales proceeds are donated to The Children's Hospital of Colorado.

Navitas Naturals Power Snacks and Nuts
These are organic, raw food snacks that taste amazing. The Coffee Cacao and Maca Maple Cashews are so good and good for you being rich in antioxidants, omega fatty acids and dietary fiber. These really do fall into the superfood category and incorporate real food like organic dates, almonds, cashews and cacao powder. These little bite sized squares will have you powering through your sleepy afternoon. Likewise the Maca Maple Cashews are nicely sweet and crunchy while being full of essential fatty acids.  See all of their healthy snacks online at

Crunchies Freeze Dried Snacks
This is a quick and easy way of getting those extra vegetables in during the day. Freeze dried, these vegetable based snacks are surprisingly flavorful and will keep "fresh" for camping and hiking trips. The Buttered Corn is perhaps the best of the freeze dried vegetable varieties and their BBQ Roasted Vegetables, well, not so much.  However their organic fruits, that is the Strawberries are delicious.
