Hangry and wishing the right snack would just appear for your enjoyment (and the well-being of whatever co-workers, family members, or friends happen to be around when your blood sugar plummets)? Odds are there’s a vending machine, convenience store, or break room just around the corner where snacks are available. Unfortunately, if you’re adhering to a gluten-free or keto diet, those options probably aren’t something you’d be proud of nibbling on. Of course, depending on your nutritional needs, opting for whatever’s on the communal counter or in the Starbucks case could also pose a serious threat to your health. Luckily, regardless of why you’ve decided to eat gluten-free or keto-friendly, Amazon and Prime Pantry delivery mean these gluten-free and keto-friendly snacks are just one order and a few days away. Stash them at your desk, in the bottom of your purse, or in your little’s diaper bag to ensure you’ve got a snack that aligns with your personal food philosophy and dietary needs whenever hunger strikes.
1. Treat yourself to something soft and chewy.
A perfectly wrapped caramel is like a little gift to yourself that can be enjoyed any time. You can’t go wrong with caramels when you’re in the mood for something sweet—unless you’re trying to limit your sugar intake, that is. Enter the keto caramel from Tom & Jenny’s. Instead of sugar, these caramels get their sweetness from plant-derived maltitol and genetically modified organism (GMO)–free xylitol—a dentist-approved sweetener that can reduce the acidity of your mouth and help prevent cavities and tooth decay. What’s more: They have no artificial colors, preservatives, flavors, or gluten. It all makes sense, given that Jenny of Tom & Jenny’s is a dentist who believes “good health is the root of happiness.” She and Tom “aspire to create the most mouth-watering bites for people on sugar or carb-restricted diets” and their caramels are just one of many snacks they make with love in the U.S.A. Get them from Amazon for $5.99.
2. Take a break with a brownie you can make in a cup.
Nothing helps beat the afternoon slump like a sweet treat…and a little baking project. No need to pull out the stand mixer (or even an apron) for these No Sugar Aloud Dark Belgian Chocolate and Organic Peanut Butter Cup Brownies. In fact, you won’t even have to do the dishes after enjoying your creation. According to the packaging, “All you need is water and love!” And considering that this gluten-free, keto brownie kit comes complete with microwavable muffin tins, you’re sure to win points at the office (or during after-school snack time) with these ooey-gooey, fiber-filled treats. They’re made with almond powder, Belgian cocoa, real butter, roasted peanuts, organic stevia, monk fruit extract, organic cocoa nibs, and sea salt, which’ll have you nodding in agreement with No Sugar Aloud chef Rodolfo Fernandes’ claim that life can be sweet without sugar. Get them from Amazon for $19.99.
3. Align with snack time.
No time to whip up a batch of brownies? Keep calm and get your sweet on with a Cherry Chakra Dosha Bar. This gluten-free, vegan, and organic option will have you feeling aligned with your dietary goals (and higher self) thanks to its organic seeds blend; unsweetened cherries, dates, plums, and apples; and a dash of sea salt. Dosha Bar partners with carefully selected organic farming partners to source its ingredients and crafts its snacks with ancient Ayurvedic medicine in mind. Not sure if your cherry chakra needs opening? Their product lineup also includes Blueberry Balance and Apple Cran Awakening Dosha Bars. Get them from Amazon for $35.99.
4. Enjoy a taste of the tropics.
This high-protein, vegan snack bar is the getaway you need—without getting away from your healthy eating aspirations (or your desk, commute, or power walk). Quntu Organic Life’s products are made with 100 percent organic quinoa sourced in Ecuador, and in addition to quinoa, these bars feature whole oats, pineapple, and coconut. While giving you 20 percent of your daily value of vitamin D (without any gluten, dairy, or artificial sweeteners), Quntu Quinoa Fruit Bars are a snack you can feel good about from a sustainability standpoint, too: Mikhuna Trade, Quntu’s parent company, actively invests in local growth and development and prioritizes improving the quality of life and income for its quinoa and amaranth farmers’ families. Get them from Amazon for $10.99.
5. Meet keto’s favorite cookie.
Fat snacks? To many, that sounds like an artery-clogging no-no, but for those who truly understand, appreciate, and adhere to a ketogenic diet, incorporating healthy fats on the regular is a big priority. Fat Snax gets it and offers a full lineup of fat-forward options, including the Lemony Lemon cookie, which comes in a satisfying two pack. Just what makes these nibbles keto-friendly? Coconut and almond flour, grass-fed butter, organic palm fruit oil, and—to nail that Lemony Lemon flavor—real lemon zest and lemon oil. Get them from Amazon for $22.98.
6. Chocolate, chocolate everywhere (but no sugar, gluten, or dairy to worry about).
This indulgent vegan option comes from Go Raw, one of my favorite snack makers. A resealable zipper bag means you can take these Choco Crunch Cookies with you wherever. Enjoy a satisfying serving of healthy fats, dietary fiber, and protein thanks to these cookies’ organic ingredients: unsulphered coconut, sprouted sesame seeds, dates, and cacao. Not a chocoholic? Reach for Go Raw cookies made with the same organic coconut, sprouted sesame seeds, and dates in Ginger Snap, Carrot Cake, Lemon Pie, or Spiced Chai instead. Get them from Amazon for $10.29.
7. Buffalo everything lovers, rejoice.
Bunker Hill Cheese brings diehard buffalo wing fans an unexpected gluten-free, keto-friendly snack: Buffalo Crunchy Cheese Crisps. The family business, started by a Swiss master cheesemaker who moved his family to the States, has been operating since 1935 and is now under third-generation ownership. Today they’re serving up options that are intentionally high protein and low carb. The short (and spicy) ingredient list, which stops at cheddar cheese, natural herbs and spices, onion, red pepper, salt, and oregano, will have you digging in without reservation. As with buffalo wings, though, don’t forget the napkins. Get them from Amazon for $12.49.
8. If sriracha’s more your style…
The masses may still not agree on the appropriate pronunciation of this much-loved condiment, but regardless of how you say it, if you’re a sriracha person, you know nothing will keep you away from that garlicky kick. Enlightened’s gluten- and GMO-free Sriracha roasted broad bean crisps come in single-serve pouches that are perfect for snacking en route to wherever your day may take you. In addition to their low-carb deliciousness, they contain only 1 gram of sugar per serving while boasting 7 grams of protein and 20 percent of your daily dietary fiber (and garlic, chili powder, and paprika, of course). Get them from Amazon for $19.34.
9. This spicy snack comes straight from the pumpkin patch.
According to a University of Alaska resource, pumpkin seeds—also called pepitas—are excellent sources of minerals and protein that contain iron, zinc, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids. All of that is to say, this is a snack worth getting behind, whether you’re vegan, g-free, or eating keto-friendly—but especially if you love spicy snacks. If the flame-covered pumpkin on the package didn’t give it away, here’s your heads up: These gourmet pumpkin seeds are hot. They’re seasoned with cayenne, black pepper, habanero, and crushed red pepper, plus garlic and unrefined sea salt, but nothing else—meaning you get 13 grams of healthy fats per serving. Get them from Amazon for $35.15.
10. Move over, Chester—there’s a flaming hot (GMO-free) Cheeto alternative in town.
If you’ve ever eaten Flamin’ Hot Cheetos until your fingertips have turned red and you’re panting in anguish (while still wanting just one more), we hear you. Unfortunately, Cheetos don’t offer the biggest bang for your nutritional buck, so why not try a gluten- and GMO-free pulse snack that brings the same crunch and heat? Enter Peatos from World Peas Brand. These nutritionally conscious crisps are made from a unique blend of pea and lentil flour (pulses), plus fava bean protein and pea fiber. In addition to offering twice the protein and three times the fiber of your old favorite, Fiery Hot Peatos are also vegan. As the Peatos site says, “No tigers were harmed in the making of our product. And if feelings don’t count, then no cheetahs were harmed either.” Get them from Amazon for $14.99.
Savory Snacks FTW
11. Whether you gravitate toward hummus or are more of a salsa snacker, everyone needs a trusty chip.
Beanitos Black Bean Skinny Dippers are the perfect high-protein, gluten-free, low-carb chips. They contain only five ingredients: whole black beans, long grain rice, pure sunflower oil, tapioca starch, and sea salt, which together work out to 16 percent of your daily fiber and 5 grams of fat per serving for your snacking delight. Black Bean Skinny Dippers are also GMO-free, vegan, and certified low glycemic, meaning they’ll help you feel full for longer and maintain healthy blood sugar levels regardless of whether you’re eating gluten-free, following a keto-friendly diet, or just after a more filling and well-balanced snack. Get them from Amazon for $9.59.
12. Like pickles? Here’s a protein-packed on-the-go snack for you.
Pickles come in all different varieties, but we don’t often think of them as a snack in and of themselves. BRAMI is out to change that with its high-protein lupini bean snacks that are…yes…adorable little pouches of pickled beans. Lupini beans, which BRAMI calls the Mediterranean version of edamame, contain 13.4 grams of plant protein per 100 calories, compared to chia seeds, which contain only 3.4 grams; chickpeas, which contain only 5.4; and even lentils and soybeans, which contain only 7.8 and 8.8 grams of protein, respectively. While pickled beans may sound a little odd, BRAMI’s lupini bean starter pack, which contains sea salt, garlic and herb, chili lime, and hot pepper bean pouches, has rave reviews on Amazon. In addition to all that protein, they’re vegan, keto-friendly, and contain zero sugar. What’s not to love? Get them from Amazon for $18.94.
13. Snack on a wild caught fillet.
Fillet is not necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when you’re rummaging around for a savory snack, but if you like salmon (or smoked maple anything) why not up your snack game with Epic Provisions’ Salmon Fillets? While it may not be a fillet a la Morton’s, eating fish once or twice a week may reduce the risk of stroke, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic conditions. These smoked maple strips boast 7 grams of protein and a short and sweet ingredient list that includes wild-caught salmon, real maple sugar, organic coconut oil, sea salt, onion and garlic powder, and dill. Get them from Amazon for $16.99.
14. This teriyaki-flavored snack is perfect for jerky-loving vegans.
Just because you’d rather not eat fish or meat jerky doesn’t mean teriyaki goodness is off limits. Cocoburg’s vegan coconut jerky is gluten-free and contains a significant serving of healthy fats from the young coconut meat and coconut aminos it’s made of. This meatless jerky is flavored with four simple ingredients: apple cider vinegar, ginger, coconut nectar, and garlic. It also boasts 4 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein, and vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, and iron, making it a well-rounded go-to for any snacker. Get them from Amazon for $6.94.
15. Relive your tween pizza roll days with this satisfying sprouted snack.
These zesty sprouted Flax Snax are some of my favorites because they actually taste like pizza. I’m also a huge fan of all things tomato, garlic, and seeds, so these crisps are a natural winner when a greasy slice just won’t do. The resealable bag means I can snack on these at my desk for days, enjoying the fact that they contain no sugar, flour, or oil and are great for tiding me over between afternoon-slump o’clock and dinnertime. They also pack well and make for a great travel snack that doesn’t crumble apart or require endless napkins for sticky fingers. Get them from Amazon for $32.67.
16. Grab a peanut butter alternative for your toast, bagel, or smoothie.
Performance Nut Butter is conveniently packaged for those mornings when a leisurely breakfast over coffee and your email inbox just isn’t in the cards. Toss a pouch in your bag and hit the road. Whenever you have a moment you can “1. Tear, 2. Eat, 3. Conquer.” Or, if you’d rather enjoy your nut butter in a slightly more civilized fashion, spread it over toast or apple slices or mix it into a smoothie. The macadamia nuts, coconut, cashews, and Himalayan sea salt (yep—that’s it) in each pack are blended with vegan and keto friendliness in mind, meaning you’ll get plenty of healthy fats to fuel your day. Get them from Amazon for $27.99.
17. Enjoy a gluten-free oatmeal alternative.
If you like rolled oats and blueberries as much as I do, you’re going to be excited about Papa Steven’s No Junk Raw Vegan Protein Bars. When you really need to eat on the go, your morning demands a healthy meal—no spoon required. These wild blueberry almond bars contain raw almonds as the number one ingredient, followed by raw hemp seeds, pea protein, organic gluten-free oats, dried wild blueberries, tapioca fiber, and organic natural flavor. What they don’t contain: added sugar. With 9 grams of fat and 20 percent of your daily vitamin C, Papa Steve’s protein bars are a great start to your day (and a 10 pack means you’ll have one on hand whenever you need to fly out the door). Get them from Amazon for $34.99.
18. Who says “no” to a refreshing snack time smoothie?
Smoothie pouches aren’t just for the littles anymore thanks to NOKA Organics, a company that’s out to “restore your confidence in real food and its ability to power you through life’s adventures.” NOKA has developed a 100 percent organic gluten-free fruit blend that’s got protein and flax and is suited to snackers of all ages. Our NOKA pick is their Blueberry/Beet organic smoothie, which contains organic banana, blueberry, apple, beet juice concentrate, flax, brown rice protein, lemon juice concentrate, maqui berry, and blueberry and wildberry flavors. This low-fat blend can be served room temperature or chilled and contains 10 percent of your daily iron—all from plant sources. Get them from Amazon for $14.99.
19. This keto option is a spread above the rest.
4th & Heart’s new-to-Amazon Chocolate Ghee Spread is the stuff breakfast dreams are made of, especially when you’re adhering to a ketogenic diet. This luscious condiment, which pairs well with protein pancakes, waffles, biscuits, and fruit, contains date syrup, chocolate, grass-fed vanilla bean ghee, cold-pressed coffee oil from Brazil, and energizing guarana seed powder. Chocti Chocolate Coffee Ghee Cacao Spread is great for snack time in part because it doesn’t require refrigeration. Leave it at your desk for a sweet morning treat any day of the week—no vying for a spot in the work fridge required. Get it from Amazon for $13.42.
20. Fuel your morning with an oldie but a (gluten-free) goodie.
We typically count oatmeal as a breakfast food, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but in truth, it can be enjoyed any time of day—from mid-morning to midnight snack—especially if you have a cup of it handy wherever hunger may find you. Bob’s Red Mill has created a gluten-free, single-serve variety pack that will allow you to enjoy oatmeal anywhere you have access to hot water and a spoon. (And thanks to the convenient paper cups, you don’t even have to have a bowl.) Why not throw a few of these in your desk drawer to ensure a hearty high-fiber snack is within reach whenever you need it? Get them from Amazon for $33.99.
21. Put the fun back in breakfast.
Waffles aren’t an easy on-the-go, gluten-free snack—no matter what flour you make them with. But wild berry stroopwafels can be, thanks to GU Energy Labs. The berry syrup that’s sandwiched between two chewy wafers to make these stroopwafels contains amino acids, electrolytes, and gluten-free carbs. Based on the reviews, this snack is adored by cyclists for its long-lasting complex and simple carbohydrate blend and caffeine boost and you can enjoy knowing it contains primarily organic ingredients including organic palm fruit oil, rice extract, real cane sugar, and eggs. Get them from Amazon for $24.00.
22. Indulge in a keto-friendly coffee cake alternative.
Who doesn’t enjoy dunking a soft pastry in a piping hot cup of coffee? Of course, if you’re prioritizing balanced nutrition, then pumpkin rolls, danishes, and the like may not get the green light, especially in the morning when you want to start your day off right. Allow us to introduce Nush Foods’ keto-compliant Banana Nut Cake. This high-fat, low-sugar treat includes 5 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein, plus calcium, iron, and potassium. Ingredients include organic flax, coconut oil, and bananas, plus walnuts, sea salt, and rosemary and monk fruit extracts—all of which adds up to a deliciously dunkable snack time slice. Get them from Amazon for $17.94.
Coffee or Tea Time
23. All that talk of breakfast food has us wanting a cup of coffee…
And of course for many coffee drinkers, that means needing a trusty creamer, which isn’t easy to find, especially for those adhering to a ketogenic diet. That said, Laird Superfood Coffee Creamer is formulated with keto followers in mind. Laird creamers are gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan and contain organic red palm oil, coconut milk powder, and aquamin—a source of bioavailable calcium sourced from red marine algae. The result is an additive-free creamer that’s suited for coffee, tea, and smoothies that doesn’t require refrigeration, meaning you can take it with you anywhere. Get it from Amazon for $24.54.
24. Caffeine-free or not a huge fan of coffee? You know we wouldn’t leave you hanging.
Try SUTRA Superfoods’ Gold single serving superfood mix, a golden milk chai latte and caffeine-free coffee substitute that contains coconut milk, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, vanilla bean, maca root powder, pink sea salt, cinnamon, Stevia, and cayenne pepper. These single-serve pick-me-ups are gluten-, dairy-, and refined sugar–free and are formulated to be keto-friendly. They’re also great year-round and on the go as they can be served hot or iced depending on where you are and what you’re craving. Get them from Amazon for $19.99.
25. Care for a sip of fat tea?
Okay, this is actually a single serve matcha brought to us by keto snack maker Fat Snax (meaning it’ll pair perfectly with those Lemony Lemon cookies). Each adorable paper packet contains 4 grams of fat from coconut and sustainable palm fruit oil, plus cassava starch, non-GMO erythritol and xylitol, ceremonial green tea matcha powder, and Stevia. In addition to the keto-friendly fats, this brew contains caffeine to pep you up and offers a hint of sweetness that isn’t found in many health-conscious beverages. Matcha lovers can also rejoice in knowing that xylitol can help prevent cavities and keep your pearly whites shining bright. Get them from Amazon for $22.99.
26. Keto coffee, plus the convenience of K-Cups.
This variety pack of K-Cups from Nic’s Keto and Organic promises to shake snack time up a bit without posing any inconvenience. These toffee and banana–, melon-, and chocolate and cream–flavored coffees contain natural flavors but no sugar, meaning you’ll get a caffeine and flavor boost, but none of the crash associated with consuming too much sugar. These K-Cups are compatible with all Keurig K-Cup brewers, including 1.0 and 2.0 models. Get them from Amazon for $14.25.
27. A cupful of activated charcoal might be just what the afternoon ordered.
This chocolatey pick comes from SUTRA Superfoods, and like their Gold single serving superfood mix, Black is also caffeine-free and keto-friendly. This blend’s ingredients are often associated with detoxing and include (in addition to the activated charcoal) coconut milk, raw cacao, red reishi mushroom, vanilla bean, sea salt, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and debittered Stevia leaf extract. If you’re feeling truly dark and moody (or just want a caffeine-free coffee alternative), this might be the perfect beverage to complement your feels and, like the Gold mix, it can be served hot or iced. Get them from Amazon for $19.99.
28. Why commit to just one coffee drink when you could try four?
Bulletproof Coffee’s ready-to-drink cold brew sampler is perfect for those who haven’t had an opportunity to try all of their keto-friendly, certified clean coffees. Bulletproof’s beans pass tests that check for 27 toxins, then are cold brewed and blended with coconut extract and grass-fed butter. The sampler pack includes their original, mocha, vanilla, and collagen protein options, meaning you can pick your favorite. Another upside of the sampler pack: You don’t have to refrigerate these coffee drinks until after opening, meaning you can grab a few and go without worrying about them spoiling between point A and the next refrigerator. Get them from Amazon for $19.95.
29. Live your life like it’s golden (and leave the single-serve waste behind).
If you’re not so smitten with the waste generated by single-serve options, try Gaia’s golden milk turmeric supplement. Like many other gluten-free and keto-friendly options, this blend includes turmeric and date palm fruit, and it also incorporates cardamom seed, ashwagandha, vanilla bean, and black pepper. Two of the nicest things about this snack time treat? You can decide how much of the blend to mix in your drink, and the rest will stay sealed and secure in its recyclable glass jar and all of the ingredients are either organic or ecologically harvested. Also, like SUTRA Superfoods’ mixes, Gaia’s Golden Milk can be enjoyed hot or iced. Get it from Amazon for $12.99.
More Than a Snack
30. Sometimes you need a snack that eats like a meal.
Snack time can mean a piece of fruit or bag of crisps—or it can mean a gluten-free, belly-warming curry, thanks to Chef Soraya’s eat-a-bowls. Our pick: vegan Kathmandu Curry (aka dal bhat for those who are familiar with Nepali cuisine). Just add boiling water or pop the bowl-in-one in the microwave and a hearty snack will be yours in minutes. The Kathmandu Curry eat-a-bowl includes lentils, long grain brown rice, potatoes, carrots, peas, garlic, and plenty of herbs and spices. All those veggies mean it’s a low-fat option that boasts 24 grams of dietary fiber, 14 grams of protein, 50 percent of your daily iron, 35 percent of your vitamin C, and 15 percent of your vitamin A. As Chef Soraya Smith says, “Namaste.” Get them from Amazon for $23.94.
31. Here’s a g-free win for the cheddar lovers.
Less curry and more comfort food (unless of course curry is your comfort food—in which case dal bhat all day!): Annie’s gluten-free rice pasta and cheddar microwavable mac and cheese is an obvious choice. This classic Americana in a cup is free from artificial flavors, synthetic colors, preservatives, and gluten, thanks to noodles that are made with a combination of white and brown rice flours. Even better? Annie’s works with its trusted suppliers to source GMO-free ingredients only and according to their website, “Every yummy bite creates a positive impact.” The company works with FoodCorps to get healthy food to school children, funds grants to support and sustain 395 school gardens (and counting!) and awards scholarships to leaders who are actively developing sustainable farming practices. All that adds up to a truly feel-good (for you and beyond) cup of mac and cheese. Get them from Amazon for $22.72.
32. This bottled snack is made for the grab-and-go gourmand.
If you’ve graduated from your days of downing mac and cheese, perhaps a spot of gluten-free gazpacho is more your style. Meet Tio’s verde gazpacho, a beautifully packaged ready-to-drink soup made from whole-food ingredients. This culinary experience can be enjoyed bowl (and spoon) free and will fill your snack time with the refreshing flavors of tomato, cucumber, green pepper, avocado, leafy greens, extra virgin olive oil, red onion, mint, Himalayan pink salt, black pepper, cumin, garlic, and jalepeño for a sophisticated kick. Get them from Amazon for $46.53.
33. Support the World Wildlife Fund while snacking on sustainable seafood.
These lightly smoked sardine fillets from Wild Selections are a wonderful keto-friendly and gluten-free option that supports healthy snacking and a cause. With 13 grams of healthy fats from fish and a touch of canola oil, these fillets make for grown-up cracker or salad toppers that can be taken on the go. Wild Selections’ sardine is Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable, and for every purchase, the company donates 13 cents to the World Wildlife Fund. The money is used to help support certified fisheries and conserve marine life worldwide. Get them from Amazon for $25.18.
34. Serve yourself something Pho’nomenal.
If you’re a fan of pho, yes, you have your favorite Vietnamese place and know exactly the right way to dress your bowl of goodness. But for those days when dining out is out of the question, Pho’nomenal brings the heat with their non-GMO, MSG-, dairy-, and gluten-free quick noodles. Unlike ramen, Pho’nomenal bowls don’t contain fried noodles or preservatives. They can be made with boiling water or in the microwave, meaning at any given snack time you’re just three minutes from a bowl of pho. Pho’nomenal’s founder—a Vietnamese refugee who shares that while bouncing from place to place his family was “often forced to share one small pot of soup among the whole family”—has also partnered with Food Banks of America, pledging to donate 10,000 bowls for every million sold. In short: This is another snack we can get behind on many levels. Get them from Amazon for $27.99.
35. Meet my favorite dry soup mix (to go).
I am a huge fan of Dr. McDougall’s dry soup mixes, and truth be told, I was weaned on this stuff from a young age. This delicious vegan black bean and lime soup is the perfect combo of savory and spice, and I consider it well suited to breakfast, lunch, and dinner—and snack time of course. A single serving of this delicious concoction contains 15 grams of fiber, 21 grams of protein, 28 percent of your daily iron, and 30 percent of your potassium. In terms of flavor profile, in addition to black beans, the instant soup—which can be made with hot water or in the microwave—is super zesty thanks to hints of lime, red bell pepper, tomato, onion, garlic, and cilantro. Get them from Amazon for $16.98.
36. This soup-from-a-bag is Osso Good.
If you prefer soup you can squeeze from a pouch over powdered options that require mixing—and want to get in on the bone broth craze—Osso Good has you covered with their new-to-Amazon dairy- and gluten-free Soup’r Foods. This three pack features their Thai Carrot, Tomato Basil, and Butternut Squash flavors, all of which incorporate a chicken bone broth base. Osso’s Soup’r foods contain zero added sugar and the packaging is BPA-free. Also, all three soups are Whole30 approved. Get them from Amazon for $46.74.
37. Sip a snack of bone broth and mushrooms.
Want more of that bone broth goodness? Kettle & Fire’s got you covered with a collagen- and gelatin-rich snack you can sip: Mushroom Chicken Bone Broth with lion’s mane superfood mushrooms. This savory broth is made from organic chicken bones that are simmered for 12+ hours, meaning it’s free from hormones, antibiotics, and artificial ingredients. It is also dairy- and soy-free. Kettle & Fire recommends you heat this lighter-than-soup snack by simmering it over the stove (which is perfect for mindful eating on a leisurely day) but shares that it can be heated in the microwave for 40 seconds in a microwave-safe container if you need your collagen and lion’s mane on the fly. Get them from Amazon for $30.37.
38. This is my go-to snack bar.
I developed a penchant for breakfasting on Chocolate Peppermint Stick LUNA bars plus a bottle of orange juice the first summer I spent on Cornell’s campus. (If you know Ithaca hills, you know the importance of a portable meal that’ll get you to class on time!) While I’m more of a rolled-oats-for-breakfast gal now, this whole nutrition bar is still my snacking go-to, and I’m never without a box of them in my desk drawer. LUNA bars are free from gluten, artificial flavors, and high-fructose corn syrup, and the delicious white chocolate peppermint bark on the bottom of these bars is actually dairy-free. That’s right, Chocolate Peppermint Stick is a vegan option that serves up 8 grams of protein along with insoluble fiber, iron, magnesium, and vitamin E, making them a perfect snack to toss in your #plantpowered gym bag. Get them from Amazon for $13.75.
39. Keto, vegan, and gluten-free, these high-tech bars have everyone covered.
Pegan Thin protein bars, which are indeed keto-friendly and vegan, are made in a dedicated gluten-free facility using stay-fresh technology that ensures they’ll be good for up to 18 months. Our thoughts on that: Toss one in every drawer, purse, bag, and pack so you’ll have a balanced snack any time a craving strikes in the next…year and a half. The variety box o’ 12 means you can try the Pegan bars in Lava Chocolate, Sweet Sunflower, Vanilla Cinnamon Roll, Cinn Raisin, and Ginger Snap. All five flavors are formulated with plant protein sourced from pumpkin seeds, organic sacha inchi, and [linkbuilder id=”6884″ text=”watermelon seeds”] plus sunflower seed butter, monk fruit extract, and ProDURA probiotics. Get them from Amazon for $29.99.
40. Variety is the spice of life—and potentially the fuel for your best workout yet.
When Thunderbird Real Food Bars says less is more, they’re talking about the number of ingredients in their bars—and the absence of added sweeteners, dairy, soy, or grain. And while we all have our favorites, sometimes more (and new!) really is better, especially when it comes to flavor profiles. That’s definitely the case when it comes to this Thunderbird Vegan Real Food Energy Bar Sampler Pack. Enjoy these Texan treats in eight flavors that translate to eight workouts fueled by something new—or the promise of a tasty (and gluten-free) treat on the other side of your sweat sesh. Get them from Amazon for $19.99.
