Always on the lookout for delicious, healthy plant-based food products, I came across the following three healthy food finds that are worth stocking up on.
I’m not much of a juice drinker, but when I took a sip of this all-natural juice company’s orange juice, I wanted breakfast time to last all day. Instead of drinking the over-pasteurized, high-calorie juices you typically find in the supermarket, you can feel good giving Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company’s juices. They produce fresh squeezed, all natural juices made from locally sourced fruits– squeezed fresh every day, all natural and free from additives such as sugar, water and vitamin supplements. The result is a one-of-a-kind juice — with a short shelf life — in delicious flavors, including orange, grapefruit, limeade, lemonade, blackberry limeade, and orange mango. Yum!
Need a fast meal or convenient snack and want it to be healthier than vending machine fare? You’ve got to try one of the dozen Rise Bars. Previously called Boomi Bar and PranaBar, Rise Bar is launching three brand new lines of bars this month, including breakfast bars, energy bars and protein bars in 12 different flavors. They’re all-natural, dairy-free, soy-free and gluten free and the Energy+ bars are vegan and organic and are available in five delicious flavors. The blueberry coconut and cherry almond Energy+ bars are my favorite.
Brad’s Raw Sweet Potato Chips
Got a battle between your sweet and crunch cravings? Brad’s Raw Sweet Potato Chips deliver a combination of natural sweetness from the sweet potato and a little pure maple syrup plus a healthy dose of fab flavor from carrots, sprouted buckwheat groats, flax seeds, vanilla, and warm spices like nutmeg. All of Brad’s Raw Chips are made with dehydrated vegetables and seeds that provide a balanced, raw snack while still enticing the senses. Each chip contains complete proteins and fats from good sources while still being gluten-free.
