Crunch Without the Salt

With high blood pressure in my family, I try to avoid foods that contain high amounts of sodium. But it's tough to find pre-packaged crunchy snacks that fit that bill.

The people over at Bear Naked, the same ones who make that amazing all natural granola have salt-free snackers in mind.

Check out their Organic Trail Mix (it's so new - it's not even on their website yet). The packaging is clear so you can see the almonds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, whole cashews, raisins, dried cranberries, and dark chocolate chips - all ingredients prefaced with the word "organic."

On the back, they list each ingredient separately and explain why they chose them.

  • Cashews contain 75% unsaturated fat so even though they're shaped like a kidney, they're good for your heart.
  • Pumpkin seeds provide high levels of phytosterols, which are believed to lower cholesterol.
  • Dried Cranberries are vibrant in both taste and antioxidant activity.

So snack away, knowing you're giving your body a healthy energy boost, with zero sodium.

This sounds good. I can't wait to try it! I love snacking on stuff like this--it keeps me away from the Doritos that beckon around every corner.

That looks great since they don't add sodium. I can't wait to see that in the stores... it's not that hard to make your own trail mix, but it is nice to be able to buy it minus salt.
