FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS 1+
Vegetables are not something a lot of us crave or necessarily turn to when we need just a little something to tide us over. However, snack foods that are bite-sized, crunchy, and usually a little bit salty, are.
So when there’s a food that incorporates the two, and actually tastes good, it’s pretty great. And as a mom who is not only trying to eat the healthiest I can for my baby, but is trying to encourage the rest of my family to do the same, this makes me really happy.
That’s why I love Just Pure Foods. Not only are their Kale Chips amazingly delicious, they have an entire line of Organic and Vegan vegetable-based snacks that your family will actually ask for more of – because they are that good!
THE PRODUCT: Just Pure Foods is all about creating foods that are not only highly nutritious, but insanely delicious as well. Free of chemicals and pesticides, and minimally processed for the benefit of your health, they only source pure foods of the highest quality so they taste just as good as they are good for you.
With 10 different products to choose from, ranging from Chocolate Kalenola to Crispy Onion Rings, to Pesto Zucchini Chips and Spicy Jalapeno Tomato Chips, these snacks take your typical idea of “vegetable chips” and definitely turn it up a notch.
NUTRITION-WISE: Just Pure Foods knows the benefits of how a healthy lifestyle that integrates raw, organic, and minimally processed foods can enhance your wellbeing, and wants to help you on your journey. That’s why all of their foods are low temperature dried to keep all of their enzymes and nutrients intact [since cooking the majority of foods reduces their nutritional value, leaving you eating more with less nourishment].
And while there are many other “vegetable snacks” on the market, Just Pure Foods takes it one step further and sprouts many of their ingredients, increasing the nutrient value and digestive ability of their products even further.
Relatively low in calories, compared to your average “chips”, and high in fiber and protein, not to mention all of the additional vitamins and minerals that the veggies are packed with, Just Pure Food snacks will help to satisfy your cravings while giving you a nutritious boost as well.
FINAL THOUGHTS: I know I’m in the minority when I say I actually enjoy eating vegetables. I truly do look forward to my veggie-packed meals. And while part of this has to do with the fact that I know how great I feel after I eat this way, it also has to do with “training” my taste buds over the years.
The healthier you eat and the more vegetables you consume, the more your body, and your taste buds, will crave these types of foods. That’s why I am working on raising my family to eat tons of veggies as they grow, so they too will “crave” them as they get older and are able to choose their own types of snacks and foods to eat.
But for those who already have a “taste” for snack foods, than finding a similar type of food is the best way to do this. And with Just Pure Foods, junky snack foods have met their match! From sweet to spicy, to salty and “cheesy”, no matter what your mouth is telling you to crave, your taste buds will be satisfied with these good for you snacks. And best of all, your body will be benefiting as well!
