3 Tips for All-Natural Power-Packed Snacks

By Neka Pasquale, Founder of Urban Remedy

When the afternoon rolls around and your tummy starts rumbling… it’s snack time! An afternoon snack is the perfect opportunity to refuel with a healthy treat full of nutrition. Whether you are hiking outdoors, trapped in the office, or packing your child’s afternoon school surprise, a nutritious snack gives your body natural energy to power through the rest of the day.

 Krispy Kale Chips

Satisfy your salty cravings by substituting regular potato chips with gluten-free kale chips that are packed with nutrition. Salty and crunchy, this gluten-free option supports stomach health, while eliminating the inflammation and fatigue that would come with a gluten-filled greasy choice.

Eat a Date, Mate

Reach for a sweet chewy date the next time you are craving that sugary afternoon snack. Dates are high in fiber, which absorbs LDL-cholesterol, and they naturally replenish energy levels. At Urban Remedy, we make our gluten-free cookies with dates, and they are sinfully delicious…

Screw Soda… Reach for Herbal Lemonade

Put that soda down! Try making some fresh herbal lemonade to rev up on those dreary fall afternoons. Natural sweeteners like stevia and agave nectar maintain steady blood sugar levels, supporting a consistent mood… while fresh herbs like mint cool the body down in the heat. Mixing fresh lemon juice with all-natural stevia or agave nectar, some water, and a sprig of mint makes for an afternoon sipper full of nutrition and refreshing for any age!
