Keep your unhealthy cravings at a minimum with these five super delicious, better-for-you snacks that are a must have when traveling long or short distances for spring break. If you are heading to Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, you will have the opportunity to meet each of the following brands in person.
Bulletproof Collagen Protein
Bulletproof Collagen Protein Bars, including my favorite Chocolate Variety Pack, are packed full of protein and nutrients to keep you energized during your spring break adventures. The bars are made with Bulletproof Collagen protein from grass-fed cows. Each gluten-free bar has between 11-13 grams of protein with no added sugar, dairy, or grain. Flavors include fudge brownie, apple pie, cookie dough, vanilla shortbread, and more.
Their Collagen Protein Go Packs gives your body the amino acid building blocks it needs to repair skin, bones, and joints. Their single-serve protein packs are easy to mix into your favorite soups, recipes, smoothies, coffee, and more while on-the-go.
The ultimate healthy snack and high in crunch and flavor, Bare Snacks, which are non-GMO, are a must for helping to keep you satiated during those long trips. It all starts with real fruit picked at the ripest and sliced just right, then oven-baking each batch to a caramelized crunch. Flavors include Bare Natural Apple Chips, Banana Chips, and Coconut Chips. Available on Amazon, including my favorite Bare Natural Coconut Chips. At the Expo, Bare Snacks will be launching fruit medleys (Apple & Strawberry and Pineapple & Coconut).
Country Archer Jerky Co.
The fastest growing jerky brand is available on Amazon, including their Country Archer All Natural Beef Jerky Variety Pack. Their jerky packets are bursting with flavor and are free of added preservatives, and nitrates, and is perfect for keeping in your carry-on bag. Jerky flavors include Teriyaki, Mango Habanero, Hatch Chile, Sriracha, and more. They also sell a variety of beef and turkey sticks, as well as turkey, beef with bacon, and pork bars.
Joyfuls are a sweet and salty treat (topped with Pink Himalayan Sea Salt) that is sourced from non-GMO and Fair Trade Certified ingredients. Each bag contains individually wrapped chocolates, ideal for sharing and easier portion control maintenance. Joyfuls is available in Dark Chocolate with Cranberries and Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds and Currants, and Toasted Coconut and Almonds.
