Navitas Naturals Has the Healthiest, Tastiest Snacks for Back-to-School & Office Munchies

It is difficult to find snacks that are as tasty as they are healthy.

And with back-to-school just days away and getting back to the office after a little vacay, I bet you're still running around trying to get everything done in time!

Well don't fret, because Navitas Naturals has it all! This awesome company believes that "Nutrient rich whole foods are best produced using organic agricultural methods with minimal processing."

Their facility is Organic, Kosher and GMP/HACCP Certified. and they "utilize methods such as freeze-drying and low temperature processing to ensure maximum nutrition and safety"

Which means that you're getting the best of the best - and nothing tastes remotely of cardboard. In fact, it's all so very delicious that you might just want to skip lunch and get right to the good part! Let me introduce you to my new favourite energizing, healthy snacks:

I'm going to be honest with you: I first about mulberries through an article where Victoria Beckham claimed they snacked on them. I thought, "You are what you eat," so off I went in search of them and Navitas Naturals has the purest, most potent ones on the market (I told you they were good!). This little berry-like fruit is of the white Turkish variety of mulberry. It is shaken from the tree and sun-dried to "optimize natural sweetness." Which means that you can switch yourself from reaching for the 2 o'clock candy bar and grabbing a handful of mulberries instead.  They are kind of like a raisin and date with a crunchier exterior.

They are incredibly good for you: they have 3 grams of protein per ounce and are an excellent source of iron, calcium, vitamin C, and fiber.  Navitas says that "Mulberries also contain a high concentration of Resveratrol, an antioxidant compound that combats free-radical damage. Recent studies have shown that regular consumption of this special antioxidant helps promote a healthy heart and longevity." Take that simple raisins! 

I came to know these sun-dried berries under another name "Cape Gooseberries." They are also sometimes called "Incan Berries." They have a sweet/sour citrus taste that is both refreshing and delightful. I like to eat them just on their own but you can bake them into your batches of muffins and cakes, add them to your granola, etc. These little beauties has a ton of carotene and bioflavonoids (vitamin P - have you ever heard of vitamin P?!) as well as vitamins A & vitamin C, dietary fiber and pectin and unlike most fruits, goldenberries also contain protein and phosphorous, giving you a ton of goodness of the go without any added sugar, salt or additives. Woo woo! 

Trying to snack healthy can be such a challenge - you can only eat so many nuts and pieces of fruit. And doesn't that get so tiresome? Sometimes I just can't face yet another granola bar. That's why Navitas Naturals Super Food Power Snacks (pictured above) are so fabulous - not once have I thought, "Ooh, I just can't have another." In fact, it's usually me stopping myself from having 1, 2 or 5 more that's the problem!

I call Citrus Chia Super Food Power Snacks my "Moroccan treats" because the exotic blend of date paste, chia seeds, cashews, sesame seeds, dried apricots, raisins, coconut, flakes, maca powder, camu camu,powder, lucuma powder and natural orange flavor transports me away from my desk to under the sun with a hot breeze running through. Talk about an "office break!"

And Cacao Goji Super Food Power Snack are like little brownie bites, though soooo much better for you than any chocolate bake mix (all thanks to powerful ingredients such as: date paste, chia seeds, raisins, sesame seeds, cacao powder, goji berry powder, sunflower seeds, maca powder, camu camu powder, sunflower meal and lucuma powder). They deliver a chewy, chocolate-likeness that is surprisingly filling, but not at all heavy. Which means when I have only 2 in the afternoon, I have enough energy to work straight through until dinner!

If you're going to snack, do it right. Do it with Navitas Naturals and never experience an afternoon slump again!
