I’ve been reviewing a variety of super tasty and innovative healthy snacks just recently, and the snack I’m featuring today is one of my favorites: the new and insanely delicious crunchy Tomato Chips from Just Pure Foods. When I was first pitched these chips, I envisioned a potato chip flavored with tomato, but once they arrived and I opened the package, I realized I was not even close.

Product Review: Scott’s Protein Balls Snacks
I’m not prone to making formal New Years’ Resolutions, but one thing I learned while hunkered down at home was how to develop healthier eating habits and stick with them. No one loves to eat more than me, so dieting isn’t my thing; but when I decide to make a change one step at a time, what originally seems daunting can become second-nature. For me, it’s all about baby steps: figuring out what works and making little adjustments as I go, so I don’t get bored or discouraged.

It has taken me this long to distill the experience because, wow, the show was just overwhelming on so many levels.

Product Review: OMG! Gourmet Pretzels
Do you like pretzels? I sure do. With their satisfying crunch and somewhat neutral flavor, pretzels can be dipped into Nutella, melted cheese, or other toppings to satisfy a sweet or savory craving. Pretzel bakers seem hip to this trend, as they find new ways to stuff a pretzel with peanut butter (yes please!) or add a flavorful coating to the outside, and I am onboard with that. If you’re also down with the idea of gourmet pretzels in new and fun flavors, let me introduce you to OMG! Pretzels. After just one bite, you will understand how these pretzels got their name.
