We’ve been there before.
We’ve been there when you get that late night craving. When your stomach starts to rumble, and you make a b-line for the pantry and look for something sweet, salty or savory. You might feel guilty about eating that bag of potato chips but you do it anyways.
We all have our guilty pleasures, but sometimes we forget that snacks don’t always have to be unhealthy. You can eliminate the refined carbs, excess sugars and saturated fats from your diet while still enjoying a satisfying snack.
At Real House, we believe that not all snacks have to be unhealthy. That’s why we supply a variety of organic and healthy snacks for the whole family to enjoy. Don’t blame us if some of these snacks become your new favourite.
Here are some of our favourite healthy snacks.
Popcorn might not seem like a very healthy snack, mainly because most of us drench our popcorn in butter, or toss it in cheap salts, chocolate, or caramel. Movie theatre popcorn and microwavable popcorn are inherently unhealthy, but that doesn’t mean all popcorn is bad for you.
Organic Popcorn is actually rich in polyphenols, which help to decrease aging process by providing antioxidants to the body. You can enjoy popcorn in a healthy way by adding herbs and spices such as chili powder, garlic powder, or basil!
Organic Fruit Bears
This might be my personal favourite. Our Organic Fruit Bears is a snack that is nearly impossible to put down once you get started.
You might think that there’s no way this candy-like treat can be healthy, but it is! By eating 40 grams of our 100-gram bag, you can receive 100% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C. There is no refined sugar added, instead we only use natural ingredients such as Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Juice Concentrates and Organic Tapioca Syrup.
Organic Jelly Beans
This is another one of our favourite healthy candies. We should say that although our candies aren’t unhealthy, this isn’t the best way to get your daily nutrients. We just want to promote clean snacks!
Our Organic Jelly Beans fit the bill here. With many of the same organic ingredients that are present in Organic Fruit Bears, we bring you another snack that you can enjoy without feeling guilty. Enjoy all of these fun flavours, such as orange, strawberry, cherry, grape, and more!
Organic Dried Mango Slices
This is a great alternative rather than ripping open a bag of potato chips. These dried mangoes seem chewy at first, but they begin to melt in your mouth, leaving behind a rich and decadent flavour.
Organic Dried Mangoes are a great source of Vitamin A, which helps to improve eyesight and the immune system along with aiding the health of other vital organs like your lungs and heart.
Organic Pitted Prunes
I’m sure many of you balk at the idea of eating prunes for a snack, but the truth is that our Organic Pitted Prunes are one of our best-selling Organic Foods! These prunes strike a balance by having a nice texture without being overly sweet.
Much of the stigma around prunes is just from the name! That’s why the California Prune Board pressured the FDA to change the name to dried plums. Afterwords, sales shot up across the United States.
Prunes aren’t just good for your digestion. They are beneficial for improving cardiovascular health, lowering cholesterol, and balancing blood sugar levels.
Organic Dried Apple Slices
Getting tired of buying apples from the grocery store? Why don’t you try a bag of our Organic Dried Apple Slices? Similarly to Organic Mango Slices, this product is a great alternative to artery-clogging potato chips.
Apples are chalk full of vitamins and minerals in the body. Organic Dried Apples are a good source of Vitamin B3 and Vitamin B5, both of which are important for the synthesis of neurotransmitters, in turn helping brain function. That’s right, you can complimentnt your intelligence by munching on some dried apple slices!
Organic Gold Fruit & Nut Mix
There are many beneficial organic fruits and nuts to choose from at Real House, but our Organic Gold Fruit and Nut Mix includes the best of them all. With an abundance of organic nuts, seeds, and dried fruits, this snack is the perfect food if you’re looking for a boost of energy during your day.
