With high blood pressure in my family, I try to avoid foods that contain high amounts of sodium.
With high blood pressure in my family, I try to avoid foods that contain high amounts of sodium. But it's tough to find pre-packaged crunchy snacks that fit that bill.
The people over at Bear Naked, the same ones who make that amazing all natural granola have salt-free snackers in mind.
Check out their Organic Trail Mix (it's so new - it's not even on their website yet). The packaging is clear so you can see the almonds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, whole cashews, raisins, dried cranberries, and dark chocolate chips - all ingredients prefaced with the word "organic."
On the back, they list each ingredient separately and explain why they chose them.
- Cashews contain 75% unsaturated fat so even though they're shaped like a kidney, they're good for your heart.
- Pumpkin seeds provide high levels of phytosterols, which are believed to lower cholesterol.
- Dried Cranberries are vibrant in both taste and antioxidant activity.
So snack away, knowing you're giving your body a healthy energy boost, with zero sodium.
