Snack Time

There are times when we have to buy snacks.
Recently we were visiting Patrick's grandparents in another state when Liam plowed through everything I had made for him half way through the trip.
Off to the store we go. You can find most of these items at natural markets such as Whole Foods, Co-Ops and many QFC's. You can also ask your local market to carry any of these items if you really like them.


Larabar has a whole line of bars under various names.
LaraBar is their snack bar. Jocalat is the dessert bar.
Uber is a bit more indulgent and ALT is their protein bar.

These bars are:
Gluten free
Dairy free*
Soy free*
All natural
Fair Trade Certified cocoa and coffee
No added sugars or sweeteners*
No added sulfites
No preservatives, fillers, or colorings

*Does not include the Chocolate Chip varieties. Chocolate chip flavors are made with a simple, 4-ingredient chocolate chip that consists of Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter and vanilla. While no dairy is used to make our chocolate chips, they are made on a line that also produces chocolate chips made with dairy and soy. Due to possible cross-contact, the chips we use may contain trace amounts of dairy or soy from other chips made at the facility; thus we cannot claim these products as Dairy Free, Soy Free or Vegan.

Organic Just Fruit & Just Veggies 

These are freeze dried fruits and veggies. We only buy the organic line but they do have an all natural line as well for those ok with that route. These are great for trips in the car, lunches etc.
Some of their offerings include:
Tomatoes (A surprising hit)
And many more..

Organic Raisins and Currants

Roasted Nuts

Simply Sprouted Way Better Chips

Sweet Potato
Black Bean
Sweet Chili
Unbeatable Blues
No Salt Naked Blues

Hope Hummus
This is by far the highest quality hummus I have found on the market.
Not only is it organic but it is also:

Gluten Free
Dairy Free
Soy Free

It comes in a variety of flavors:

Sweet Potato
Spicy Avocado
Green Chili Lime
Thai Coconut Curry
Jalapeno Cilantro

These are our go-to store bought snacks. I will be doing another post on our homemade favorites soon.
Happy snacking!
