When I think of Sun-Maid raisins, I think of my childhood. At a private school, we didn’t even have a lunch room, so we ate at our desks. One of the easiest snacks to eat minus the mess was always a Sun-Maid product in the little red box. Sun-Maid Vanilla Yogurt Raisins Mini-Snacks are all-natural, and despite being a “healthier-for-you” option, they are still a delicious treat for the kids or as a mid-day snack for mom. You will get that natural energy boost you need that won’t lead to that dreaded sugar crash later in the day. The creamy yogurt coating gives you the sweet treat you crave, and the raisin is antioxidant-rich; a 1/4 cup is equal to a serving of fruit! We love this alternative to sweets and this fun take on a traditional raisin.
Kashi has long been the leading all-natural “lifestyle pioneer”. I can’t tell you how much I loved the Kashi TLC Peanutty Dark Chocolate Layered Granola Bars. I am one of those people who either loves a granola bar or hates it, and these were literally one of the best I’ve had. I hate eating breakfast, and this was something I kept coming back to all week long. Made with Kashi’s signature blend of Seven Whole Grains, each bar features dark chocolate and a peanut taste that satisfies any breakfast need or mid-afternoon craving. Packed with fiber and protein, these bars are ideal for someone who usually forgoes breakfast—(GUILTY!)
CalNaturale is a company that also takes an all-natural approach with their Svelte protein shakes. My colleague enjoyed the smooth flavor of the Cappuccino variety (he recommends getting the drink super-cold in the fridge before drinking). These gluten-free shakes also come in French Vanilla, Spiced Chai, Cappuccino, and Chocolate varieties. Svelte’s Eco-friendly Tetra Pak container is easy to travel with, so it’s there when you need a morning boost before a workout. Likewise, when it comes to the evening hours, CalNaturale also has a wine that is easy to pack, especially for those Fall evenings outdoors with friends around the bonfire. It is California’s first wine made from organically grown grapes that is available in Tetra Pak containers, with varietals in Chardonnay and Cabernet, which was full-bodied and rich. My views about wine ‘in a box’ have completely changed. This is a smart way to package wine; not to mention Eco-friendly.
