Better Snacks by Cari Culp, RD

Every household has those staple foods they love. Today I want to share my favorite staple snacks and foods items that are also packed with nutrition! Hope these items give you more healthy eating options!
Love Beets:

Pre-cooked and peeled beets that can be enjoyed on a salad, in a smoothie or juice or simply by themselves! This is one of the fastest most convenient ways to add nutrient dense veggies to any meal!
Sea Snacks Roasted Seeweed:

Seaweed offers a broad range of minerals, plus it’s high in protein and fiber. One serving is around 100 calories and packed with flavor and nutrients. Seaweed is an excellent source of iodine and vitamin K and a very good source of folate, magnesium, iron, and calcium. My kids even love this slightly salty, crunchy snack!
Saffron Road or The Good Bean Roasted Chickpeas:
Craving something crunchy and a bit salty? These little chick peas are packed with fiber and protein so they are more balanced and provide more satiety with less sodium than many alternative snack options.
