Crunchies– Crunchies light and crunchy freeze-dried fruit and vegetable snacks are made with premium farm to table ingredients and take snacking to the next level. Make healthy snacking easy and always have these sweet little treats nearby to keep you on track! Bonus: Your kids will love them!
Fresh n’ Lean– Fresh n’ Lean is a ready-to-eat meal prep delivery service of organic, gluten-free, fresh pre-portioned meals. All the work has been done for you! Simply reheat and eat! Many people want to eat healthier meals but struggle knowing where to start or what to make as well as how to portion. Struggle no more! Simply pick your plan and meals and enjoy fresh, portioned meals delivered to your door.
SuperSeedz– SuperSeedz are not only great for snacking but add that crunch salads are missing. Actually, that’s how they came about. Their creator, Kathie, was missing crunch in her salads. As an added bonus, they come in flavors like Somewhat Spicy, Cinnamon & Sugar, Tomato Italiano and more. Of course, there are plain as well. What makes these really different are that the shells are removed. Who knew pumpkin seeds had removable shells? Guess what? Kids love these too! Mine keep disappearing and I find the kids with them lol.
Community Coffee – WE are loving these coffees. The Sugar Dusted Beignet was perfect for Easter. Everyone raved. With Community Coffee, you can serve uncompromising, delicious coffee with a commitment to quality and an unparalleled passion for great ground and whole-bean coffee! Pour any of the many flavors, including Signature Blend Dark Roast, Signature Blend Beignet, Sugar-Dusted Beignet, or Private Reserve Brazil. You’ll find a flavor to pair with just about anything with Community Coffee.
Catalina Crunch– For anyone on Keto missing cereal and the crunch of cereal, I have a treat for you! Catalina Crunch is what you’re looking for and have been missing. Full of crunch and rich cinnamon toast flavor, Catalina Crunch is for anyone Keto, Vegan, Gluten-Free or just want healthier options for themselves and their family. I am a quick breakfast kind of gal and was missing cereal and this filled that craving. Not only that, I want to pull my kids off of unhealthy cereals filled with fillers, grain and gmo’s. Catalina Crunch is grain free, nothing artificial, no sugar, non-GMO, and 100% vegan. I was unsure how it would be received by the kids. Well, they loved it! This is our new family cereal! I’ll be ordering the decadent dark chocolate flavor when I re-order!
Outer Aisle Plantpower Sandwich Thins– For me, the only problem with keto is that I am a Lazy Keto’r. Sometimes I just want convenience but it is sometimes hard to find healthy convenient alternatives regardless of what lifestyle or diet you practice. I was ecstatic to learn of Outer Aisle Sandwich Thins! They are made with simple ingredients (Fresh Cauliflower, Whole Cage-Free Eggs, Parmesan Cheese (Cultured Milk, Enzymes, Salt), Pure Nutritional Yeast), they are grain-free, low glycemic, no artificial ingredients and the taste…well, I love them so much I have them several times a week! I started by having them as a bread substitute on a sandwich. I graduated to using as a tortilla and as the base for avocado toast. But it also makes a great mini pizza base. I’ve served these to the kids in all of these ways (their favorite being the mini pizzas) and they love them.
Chipotle BBQ Pacific Sea Salt – Blended New Zealand Sea Salt and seasonings that complete the BBQ flavor, this seasoning captures the bold flavor of BBQ in a bottle.
Salted Manuka Honey Caramels-Salted Manuka Honey Caramels are a mouthwatering perfect anytime treat. These chewy caramels are made with real butter, pure vanilla, blended with genuine Manuka Honey from New Zealand and Organic Flaky Sea Salt to create the ideal sweet treat you’ll feel good about giving your children.

Emmy’s Organics – Emmy’s Organics coconut cookies are the perfect decadent cookie for any time or even entertaining. These healthy coconut cookies are surprisingly bursting with flavor. Try one and you’ll not only see but become addicted as I did. Made with all-natural ingredients and certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, kosher, and vegan, you’ll be happy to share these with your family.
Nush Cakes – Nush Cakes are a low carb cake full of flavor. Thought you couldn’t have treats or cakes on low carb or keto? Wrong! Or maybe you thought they’d lack flavor? Wrong again! These healthy little cakes are surprisingly loaded with flavor but not carbs. They come in flavors like Blueberry, Pineapple Mango, Peanut Butter and more. They are perfect anytime, but if you are anything like me and want to grab something sweet and quick for breakfast, these hit that sweet spot. For me, particularly the Blueberry or Banana Nut.
True Citrus low-Calorie Lemonades, Limeades, Orangeades, Iced Teas, and Energy Drink Mixes– Trying to stay hydrated but you’re bored with plain water? True Lemon products let you add flavor without adding artificial sweeteners or preservatives, gluten, sodium, or high calories. So you can drink more water deliciously while staying hydrated and healthy. This has allowed me to wean off unhealthy drinks like soda and energy drinks as well as wean the kids off sugary drinks.
Vegan Keto Cookbook by Liz MacDowell– While I am personally not vegan, or vegetarian for that matter, I struggle with finding vegetarian meals and sides, which I do love. For example, many people simply serve basic sides, such as unseasoned green beans. I wanted more. I love vegetables. At least when they are full of flavor. That’s just what Liz’s Vegan Keto gives me. I also needed the help so I could incorporate vegetables my kids would not only eat but actually enjoy. I don’t like to force kids to eat. I want to serve the foods they enjoy. This has allowed me to do just that! From her book, we’ve made: Sausage-Style Breakfast Patties, Chia Pudding, Baked Radish Chips, Crispy Broccoli Bites, Sweet Chili Roasted Radishes and more! Everything I have made thus far has not only been loved but requested on regular rotation. This is one cookbook that won’t be shoved away somewhere. I know you know what I mean.
