Top 5 healthiest, Tastiest Snacks on the Go!

1. Kale Chips
These crunchy, alkalizing treats are a perfect replacement for mid-afternoon French Fries. Nutrient dense crispy veggies with a minimum of 5 grams of protein per serving, it’s the perfect blood sugar balancing snack! 

Austin’s own Rhythm Chips
$29.99 for a case of 6.  Comes in Zesty Nacho, Bombay Curry or Kool Ranch. Or stop Whole Foods Raw Section or Daily Juice to pick up a bag for $4.99.

You can also try making your own by following this recipe for Kale Chips.

2. Pumpkin Seeds
At the top of the roster for health benefits including - high magnesium, remedies for parasites and high zinc – pumpkin seeds are the superstar of seeds! Grab some pumpkin seeds from the bulk section of your local Whole Foods or give Gerbs a whirl. 

Gerbs are the pumpkin seeds specialists!
$2.99 for a 3.5 oz box.  There are many flavors to choose from, but one of our favorites is Lightly Salted, Whole Roasted.

Or if inclined follow this Love Cleanse Recipe for Roasted Pumpkin Seeds and make your own! 
3. Flax Crackers
High in fiber, antioxidants and Omega-3 Fatty Acids – Flax should be a staple in every diet. And chomping on these crispy Organic Mustard Flax Crackers from Foods Alive is a much more palatable way to receive the benefits than the sawdust powder that is Flax Fiber. You will be transported to the ballpark with a pretzel!

$5.99 for a 4 oz bag.  Comes in a variety of flavors, which can be found through the link above.  You may order online or at your local Whole Foods Market.

4. Hummus
Paired with crispy raw carrots, cucumber or celery – hummus is one of the most perfect afternoon snacks. Many varieties of hummus are available. One of my favorites in Austin is Grandma’s Hummus, which can be purchased at Whole Foods Market. Vampires beware – the garlic in this will send you running!

$5.50 for a 9 oz container at Thom’s Market. 

And of course, for those in Austin on Phase 1 of the program – Thai Fresh’s citrus/tahini free variety is a lifesaver! You may also make your own citrus free hummus.

$5 for a 12 ounce container 
5. SuperFood Snack
The Love Cleanse has formulated a high fiber/high protein plant based powdered shake which is used in all of our programs. The special combination of high fiber/ protein along with the nutrient dense profile create a perfect afternoon or morning snack. 

$65 + Shipping for 25 servings
