A Foods of the Moment roundup featuring the latest and greatest health food products on the market.
I’ve done Foods of the Moment posts solely dedicated to vegan foods before. Ones that only feature paleo goods. And even a few that are totally focused on bars. Well today, I am catering to my gluten-free friends and presenting you with four new snacks items that are totally gluten-free friendly…and uber delicious! But of course, that second part is a guarantee with my Foods of the Moment posts. 😉 I only pick out the best tasting stuff to share with you all!
But before I get to the gluten-free goodies though, I wanted to share the SEVEN winners of my huge blogiversary giveaway have been announced!
Go check out the original post to see if you’re one of the lucky ones! Email me to claim your prize.
Now, let’s get right into the FOOD…
Green Plate Foods sent me a fun package of their ‘naturally smart snacks’. From fruit snacks to cookies, they create foods that make you nostalgic for childhood but are much healthier than your old favorites. Their fruit bites come in three flavors: Apricot Cranberry, Blueberry Pistachio (my fave!), and Cherry Chocolate. They each only have 5 ingredients, are fruit sweetened, and have lots of healthy fats from the inclusion of coconut. They’re like little bites of raw fruit and nut bars! Perfect for popping in your mouth on the go. I even think these would be great to use as fuel on a long run! Easy to eat and tasty. They’re also gluten-free and vegan.
The cookies they make are OUT OF THIS WORLD delish! My favorite was the Sweet Potato Almond Butter. Usually I am not a huge almond butter fan, but it tasted so rich and buttery in this sweet cookie. The pairing of the carmelly sweet potato flavor and the slightly salty almond butter was utter perfection! The Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies weren’t half bad either. A little less crunchy than a typical chocolate chip cookie, but still sweet, chocolate-filled, and made with super wholesome ingredients. I love zucchini and chocolate together so I knew I’d like these cookies! Great for when you just want a little treat that’s also got some good stuff for you in it.
Brami Beans are SNACKING beans! They’re made from Mediterranean beans called Lupini beans and are full of protein and fiber. They sort of remind me of edamame but bigger and with more crunch to them. Plus, they’re soy-free so people with soy allergies can enjoy them. What I most like about the beans are the fun flavors they come in! Slightly salty, slightly vinegary….they all taste very fresh and bold! I ate mine straight out of the packs, but you can also cook with them, soak them, or heat them up! The beans are non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, and mineral-rich too. Here’s some other cool info about them…
Overall, a healthy, satisfying snack for when you’re craving something savory and a bit out of the ordinary!
Jilz Crackerz are simple seeded crackers that are gluten-free, paleo, and vegan! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been OBSESSED with them lately. These light, crispy crackers are BURSTING with flavor! They come in three flavors: Cracked Pepper and Sea Salt (classic salty and hot flavor), Mediterranean (flavored with herbs, garlic, and lavender…OMG amazing), and Tuscan (herby, lemony, and slight tomato flavor).
I honestly can’t choose a favorite because they are all so yummy. I love how crunchy they are and the ingredients can’t be beat. They are all nut and seed based made from things like sesame seeds, chia seeds, tapioca flour, and almond flour. This was my first time having anything made from almond flour and I am a BIG fan. So nutty and buttery! Jilz has got a great thing going here for sure!
Fruit. THAT’S IT. Just like their name suggests, these bars are ONLY made from fruit. So simple, yet so tasty! Each bar has 100-110 calories and is full of fresh fruit flavor. They come in 9 tasty flavors: Blueberry, Cherry, Mango, Apricot, Banana, Coconut (MY FAVE!!!), Pineapple, Pear, and Strawberry. All vegan, gluten-free, and with only 2 ingredients, these are truly some of the healthiest bars on the market. They’re soft and dense…sort of like a Larabar but without the nuts! I like to eat them straight out of the freezer, cut up into little fruit snacks, and dipped in peanut butter. DELISH.
They also recently came out with a new line of Zesty flavors…I am dying to try them!
