August Fit Snack Review: Bars and Nuts and Granola

August Fit Snack Review: Bars and Nuts and Granola

I’ve finished scarfing down most of the goodies in my August Fit Snack box, and I’ve got to say, it’s another hit out of the park… onto Landsdowne. (Yes, still a Red Sox fan. You can’t get me to immediately start rooting for the Astros. I still root for the Dodgers, for goodness sake!)
August Fit Snack Review: The Subscription Box for Healthy Snackers

That subscription box of treats looks pretty packed, right? Here’s what’s in it (prepare to have your mind blown):

Purely Elizabeth Granola, Pumpkin Fig: I had this granola straight-up as a cereal with soy milk. It’s gluten-free, vegan, organic, and non-GMO – and delicious. Purely Elizabeth has whetted my pumpkin spice appetite for fall.

Kutoa Nutrition Bar, Cherry Cashew: In addition to being non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan, these are altruistic bars. For every Kutoa bar you buy, the company feeds a hungry child. And these are also really tasty, a good morning or afternoon snack on the go.

Don’t Go Nuts Dips, Chocolate: If you or a loved one has a nut allergy and can’t indulge in Nutella, this is your solution. The Don’t Go Nuts dips are peanut-free, tree nut-free, non-GMO, organic, gluten-free, and dairy-free, and they are GOOD. I ate mine on whole grain crackers, but this chocolate dip would taste great on an apple as well.

Runa Energy Tea, Orange Passion: Red Bull may give you wings, but when I drink it, my wings are quickly clipped, and I come plummeting to the ground. That’s not the case with Runa Energy Drinks. They’ve got the right mix of caffeine to kick me into gear when I’ve hit a mid-day slump.

Balance Nutrition Bars, Sweet & Spicy Nut: Balance bare bars are non-GMO, gluten-free, and soy-free, and they’re made with whole foods like nuts and fruit. The Sweet & Spicy Nut bare bare had a kick to it – the kind of kick that made it more savory than sweet. Very tasty.

Love Grown Foods Cereal Power O’s, Original: Not like I’ve been looking for a Cheerios substitute, but if I was, this would be it. The Love Grown Foods Power O’s are made with beans and lentils and packed with protein and fiber. If that sounds gross, trust me that when I say these were delicious eaten with soy milk, I mean it.

Yummy Health Protein Chips, Cheddar: You have no idea how much I wanted to love these gluten-free, low-carb chips made from 99% cheese. But I just couldn’t get into them; they tasted a little flat.

Trophy Nut Almonds: Almonds. Plain, simple, and roasted to perfection, with a dash of sea salt for flavor. You can’t get much better than that for a basic, healthy snack.

MRM Veggie Elite Protein, Vanilla Bean: Admittedly, I haven’t tried this yet. The stats look good: plant-based, soy-free, GMO-free, gluten-free, and allergen-free. It’s supposed to rival whey protein, so I’ll tuck it into my shaker bottle soon.

And the bonus! On the card that Fit Snack includes with every box, there’s always a workout. Because we all need time to prep for next month, Fit Snack’s August workout is a yoga workout, perfect for National Yoga Month (September). Are you getting your asanas on?

Once again, I highly recommend Fit Snack box – if you’re trying to eat healthier and looking for new snacks to try without committing to a whole box of bars or packs of goodies, it’s the best way ever to try something new. And for less than $25 month? It’s a steal!
