WIN THIS: An Organic Snacker Belly Bag from Happy Belly Bags!

Eating healthy is hard. With all the labels, the marketing schemes, the ever-changing rules and the vast selection of diet books all claiming the same thing...it's hard! Picking the right foods becomes a challenge we often don't have time for. Or the tastebuds for. So we make bad decisions on a whim and instantly regret them. Or we keep eating the same 'ol crap day in and day out. But eating healthy isn't so hard, really. It just takes a little common sense and a small selection of excellent resources. My favorites include Oxygen, Cooking Light and my Google Reader (currently subscribed to a number of reputable healthy eating resources). I've learned a lot just by reading up, and I've come to really know what's good and what's bad. But still, I wish healthy food would just show up on my doorstep.

Turns out, it can. Ever hear of Happy Belly Bags? It's a wonderful resource for specialty food gifts for people who are "on restricted diets due to choice or for medical reasons." And since eating healthy is obviously one of the key choices we should all be making, this company is a winner in my eyes. It's not a grocery store, per se. But a resource for strategically packed gift bags and (of course) a la carte items that have been chosen specifically by Sarah, the woman behind the bags. She's committed to "selecting absolute quality."

And so, when she agreed to send me a few samples of her products, I basically jumped for joy. Who doesn't love tasting new foods that happen to be healthy, too? This girl does, that's for sure. This girl loved her sampler pack, too. It was chock full of deliciousness:

It's as if Sarah knew exactly what I wanted to try. Mangos? Almond Butter? Tortilla Soup?! Hello, happy belly. And that's what I love about this company. There truly is something for everyone. From gluten-, nut- and dairy free bags to Kosher and egg-free products...every belly can be made instantly happy. Choose from pre-selected gift bags or build your own. However you go about it, your recipient will love it...and yes, you can be your own recipient. Think about building a snack pack for your desk drawer or an upcoming road trip. Or maybe you just had to switch up your diet and now face restrictions you haven't yet had to deal with—this is the perfect way to make dealing with them fun!

Take a closer look at some of the products from the bag above:


Bare Fruit 100% Organic and Bake-Dried Mangos. (Notice the absence of sugar?)

22 Days Enlightened Pumpkinseed Bar. (LOVE me some pumpkinseed.)

Love Raw Foods Whole Raw Organic Almonds. (On-the-go snacking!)

I've also sampled the Better Than Roasted, Sprouted Raw Almond Butter and the Big Tree Farms Organic Coconut Palm Sugar with Cinnamon (in my oatmeal). Both of which were de-li-cious.

Happy Belly Bags is like someone walked around Whole Foods for you, picking out only the best of the best. That's a jackpot, if you ask me. And it might be for you, too. They've graciously agreed to give one lucky Daily Dose reader an Organic Snacker Belly Bag, which would be a seriously awesome score. And yes, those icons mean that this bag contains foods that are gluten-, dairy- and casein-free, and they also happen to be organic and whole. Does it get any better than that? You'll love this bag if you find yourself packing snacks every day. And you'll love the bag, too. (Who doesn't love a stylish, reusable tote? Beats those plastic bags from the grocery store, right?)

To be quite honest, eggs. LOVE eggs. Hard boiled or poached are the favorites!

AllieMiami said...

Two of my favorite daily snacks are almonds and green smoothies (peaches and spinach really do taste good together!)

For breakfast, I've been on a buckwheat kick. It's a nice change from oatmeal and I make it with lots of cinnamon, almond milk and fresh apple slices. Yum!

Michelle said...

Now that it's fall I'm all about apples. I've been having at least one a day. So tasty and healthy!

Rachel said...

My new favorite snack is organic apple (sliced) dipped in organic peanut butter with a little bit of organic pumpkin seed granola. YUMMY!!
