Friday Five: Healthy Snacks I’m Loving Lately

It’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for the new Friday Five 2.0. The theme this week is “Fashion.” I’m going to swap weeks and do a post on some of my fave new running brands next week. I have some things coming in the mail that I want to include!

I’ve been traveling a lot lately and healthy snacks are a saving grace for me. I’m no good when I’m hangry. Trust me on that one! I’ve been grabbing some of these healthy items for home and on the go.

Five Snacks I’m Loving Lately

1. PROBAR Nut Butter Pack + a banana or apple – I love nut butter – and the portion control of these PROBAR packs is perfect for me. I received #alltheflavors. There are 10! I’m still working my way through them. So far, I haven’t found a bad one in the bunch! Lately, I’ve been spreading these on a banana or apple for a morning or mid-day snack. I’m going to do a review and giveaway soon. You can enter Carlee’s giveaway for a sampler of all of the flavors through 5/24. What are you waiting for?

2. Karma Nuts Cashews with some Wine Rayzyns – I’ve been mixing up two faves recently. Karma Nuts’ new 1.5 oz packs are another amazing portion controlled snack for me. I’ve been creating a quick superfood trail mix with Karma Nuts Raw Cashews, Wine Rayzyns and Dark Chocolate Chips. Amazing! You can enter to win a pack of Karma Nuts on my Instagram through 5/20. There will be 10 winners!

3. 88 Acres Apple and Ginger Seednola + Forager Project Cashewgurt – 88 Acres makes amazing seed based, nut free bars. They create a grain-free “Seednola” with the edges and extras. They sent me some Apple & Ginger Seednola and I love it. It’s great plain or with Forager Project’s Plain Cashewgurt. Yum! Review and giveaway of the 88 Acres line of bars, Seednola and seed butters is coming soon.

4. BRAMI Beans + Vermont Smoke and Cure Meat Stick– If you saw my love letter (a/k/a review) of BRAMI Beans last week, you know I love these high protein lupini beans. [Enter to win all the flavors here through 5/26.] I’ve been pairing them with Vermont Smoke and Cure Meat Sticks or other veggies.

5. Hummus and veggies – I eat #allthehummus and then don’t eat it for months. This is a hummus period and my recent obsession is Hope Hummus Kale and Pesto. Have you tried it?

    I was excited to see the ProBar now has nut butter – how fun! I love their products so I’m sure their nut butters are awesome!

  2. You always seem to get to try such interesting snacks. Again some I never even heard of. Are these in specialty stores?

    I really love nut butters but I also like the Raw Rev Glo bars! They taste like dessert but healthier and are so delicious!

  4. The PROBAR Nut Butter sounds really good. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing so I can try new things. 🙂

    Nut butter sounds great. Could I spread it on a tortilla? I’m doing peanut butter on tortilla before our race tomorrow.

  6. Totally filling out that form! I’ve been digging the Trader Joes Horseradish Hummus!
