Welcome to the latest edition of Unboxed, where Delicious Living's Senior Food Editor Jenna Blumenfeld reviews the latest natural food and beverage products that have crossed her desk.
This week: Portable products for on-the-go-shoppers. These new healthy convenience items can make your life easier. From portable vegan bowls (just add water) to cleaned-up bars and jerky, here are seven snack and meal solutions for your time-pressed schedule.
Founded by a pastry chef, these ultra-crunchy cookies are relatively small and highly addictive … which is OK because one serving is seven cookies—not bad for 130 calories. Open the bag and you’ll receive a sweet hit of caramel and burnt sugar.
This Michigan-based brand strives to make snacks with minimal ingredients. Here, a classic strawberry chewy granola bar features rolled oats, cane sugar, brown rice syrup, rice flour, dried strawberries and non-GMO canola oil.
Whether you forgot your lunch at home or need a hefty post-workout mini-meal, this vegan bowl containing quinoa, lentils, veggies and spices fits the bill. Quick-cook ingredients are ready in just 1½ minutes, and deliver ample fiber, protein and satiety.
Each whole-food bar features holier-than-thou ingredients, such as USDA Organic dates, raisins, cashews, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, almonds, walnuts, prunes, quinoa and pecans. No added sugar or natural flavors. Just pure, wholesome fruit, nuts and seeds.
Certified Paleo and Certified Gluten-Free ingredients, such as chicken, date syrup, pineapple juice, rosemary, ginger and garlic—all packaged in a cool, sleek bag (no testosterone-laden muscle imagery here). A grown-up flavor lends sophistication without nitrates or added sugar.
The name of this bar hints at marketing to the yoga crowd. USDA Organic, Certified Paleo ingredients such as almonds, dates, coconut nectar, unsweetened coconut, maca and Celtic sea salt will help mindful consumers reach their deepest down dog pose ever.
Born in the snowy confines of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, this bar features four chunks of Kate’s signature bars, made with 81 percent organic ingredients like oats, honey, peanut butter, milk chocolate, dried fruits and more. Nosh these on the chair lift, and then soar down the mountain.
