Take Snack Bites With You
Snack bites are the best way to sneak in a “quick bite” when you’re in a rush or not ready to stop the fun. They’re also great for healthy munching between mealtimes. Bring a bag to all your adventures and busy days, and you won’t have to worry about hunger or nutrition.
Whether on the Trail
There is nothing better than a day of hiking with the family or exploring the trails with friends. Take a short rest and share a satiating snack with the kids to supply them with the energy they need to take on the rest of that mountain. You can relax knowing they’re getting real ingredients, antioxidants, and vitamins instead of fillers and artificial flavors. No need to worry about an impending sugar crash—just the fight over who gets the last piece.
Or in the Office
You can also stash a bag of snack bites in your desk drawer at work for those days you don’t have time to eat or just need a pick-me-up. This tasty treat gives you a hefty dose of vitamins and minerals without sacrificing flavor or portability. No more prepackaged, artificial treats full of sugar and preservatives just for the convenience. You can take Kate’s Real Food products anywhere, including the office, the commute, or your weekend getaways.
Plus, you don’t have to narrow it down to just one flavor. Choose two of your favorites with the Snack Bites 2-Pack, and you won’t have to settle for one or the other.
Importance of Real Food
When it comes to the food we eat, it’s important to remember that what we put into our bodies is our fuel for the day. The best fuel we can get comes from natural, real ingredients that have not been chemically altered or engineered. In their natural state, they are more nutrient-dense and contain more of what our bodies need.
When surrounded by snack options that claim to be healthy, how do we know which ones will provide us with the fuel we need?
Short, Simple, Real
For starters, check the labels to find out what ingredients are in the products you buy. You should see a short list of real food items you recognize. The longer the list gets, the more likely you will start to see ingredients that are unfamiliar and hard to pronounce.
If the word sounds made up, it probably is—meaning, it is not an organic ingredient found in nature, but something manufactured to add flavor or increase the shelf-life of the product.
Natural, Tasty, Sweet
Kate’s Real Food uses organic honey to sweeten our bars and snack bites. This adds a naturally light and subtle sweetness that balances out the flavors of the other delicious ingredients, like dried fruit, dark chocolate, and nuts. It also provides anti-inflammatory properties that help combat diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
Benefits of Real Food
Healthy, whole-food ingredients are those that remain as close as possible to their natural state, so they still contain all their vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Essentially, you are getting the food itself, rather than what is left of the food after it has been processed.
For example, whole grain oats contain fiber and can contribute to a healthy heart and aid digestion. However, when processed, whole grain oats lose much of this fiber and your body only gets what remains.
Nutrients Working Together
Choosing a diet that consists mainly of real ingredients has a number of health benefits for your mind and body. When consuming a food that contains a combination of nutrients and phytochemicals, your body not only benefits from each individual nutrient, but also benefits from the way they work together. While supplements can sometimes help you to get nutrients that are missing from your diet, they are simply not as effective as getting those nutrients from food.
The nutrients in real foods like whole grains contribute to a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some types of cancer, as well as other benefits. Remember, you do not have to cut out all processed foods to be healthy. It is important to make changes wherever you can and choose real ingredients in the majority of your diet.
