“Health Nuts” Healthy Snacks
As delicious as they are, Sahale Snacks also hold their ground in the nutrition department. They’re made with all-natural ingredients and are GMO-free. All the blends generally contain only nuts, dried fruits, spices/seasonings, organic evaporated cane juice (sometimes brown sugar or organic honey) and organic tapioca syrup, which acts as a subtly sweet glaze to bind the fruits and nuts together in most of the varieties.
While we tend to reach for snacks that appeal most to our palates—ones that are commonly laden with unhealthy saturated fats or preservatives and high in empty calories, the ones from Sahale provide monosaturated and polyunsaturated fats associated with lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk of heart disease while satisfying a case of the munchies. And nuts are also a good source of fuel for an active lifestyle since they are full of protein. Each 1/4 cup serving ranges between 10 to 14 grams of fat, most of which come from the healthy nut fats.
Best of all, Sahale Snacks are so versatile and transportable that they all but beg to be incorporated into one’s daily routine. The handsome bags reseal easily and can be kept in handbags, backpacks, desk drawers and lockers.
The mixes are also versatile complements to other foods:
- Add them to cold or hot cereal
- Add them to salads for extra crunch and flavor
- Toss them over soups, rice or side dishes like mashed sweet potatoes
- Stir them into yogurt
- Sprinkle them over ice cream, yogurt or cottage cheese
- Bake them into phyllo dough
- Use them to garnish cheese plates, appetizers or main courses
There are some recipes on the company website. Sahale makes snacking something to celebrate...and maybe something new to cook with, too.
