Since we discovered kale popcorn this week, we decided that we’re never going to eat salads again. Just kidding! We still love our Instagram-worthy salads but kale popcorn comes in a really close second.  Read on to find out more about this week’s favorite new healthy products:

 

 

1. Biena Chickpea Snacks

These little guys are a crispy, addictive snack with big flavor; each bean is coated in a mouth-watering blend of seasonings and spices that will excite your taste buds. Plus, chickpeas are much healthier than what you might reach for when your snack craving hits, like pretzels or chips. Just a handful of Biena provides 6 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein and only 3 grams of fat. Our favorite flavor is the Rockin’ Ranch. (Available at stores nationwide or online; a 4-pack for $5)

2. PHIVEBar

Created by a former Miss California and NFL quarterback, this bar definitely scores. Each bar contains a blend of organic and non-GMO fruits, nuts and seeds providing you with clean, sustained energy. Each bar tastes delicious and chewy, even without any added sugars or gluten. PHIVE comes in three flavors—original, peanut butter and blueberry—our favorite. (Available at stores nationwide or online; 12 for $35)

3. Quinn’s Kale Popcorn

Finally a popcorn that is non-GMO and organic! Quinn’s is reinventing the way we eat popcorn, with a line of all natural pre-popped popcorn and microwavable popcorn bags. And you can rest assured that the Pure Pop microwavable bags aren’t lined with any cancer causing plastic or chemicals. The colorful, tasty kale popcorn is the perfect way to get a few greens into your day. We can’t wait for Friday night to sit on the couch, turn on the TV and rip open a bag of Quinn’s. (Available at stores nationwide or online; 2 bags of microwavable popcorn are $5, and 2 bags of kale popcorn are $10)

4. Leap Smoothies

Leap makes it easy for you to make smoothies in seconds—just pour the powder into your liquid of choice and stir. No need to worry about chopping up fruits or cleaning a blender.  This is perfect for those busy mornings when you want something healthy and delicious, but don’t have time to prepare anything. You won’t get a chalky taste from Leap like you can from some protein powders. Even better news is that all ingredients are organic and raw for optimal nutrition. In addition, each bag provides about 10-15 grams of vegan protein. We recommend the Red Powder mixed with our Blueberry Bliss smoothie recipe. (Available online; 6 pouches for $30)

5. Super Pop! Bars

If you adore quinoa like we do, you will love this delicious snack. Super Pop! is a quinoa protein bar comes in four mouthwatering flavors. All are all-natural, dairy-free, soy-free,non-GMO, and contain organic puffed quinoa. Each bar is super soft and chewy and loaded with 9 grams of protein. Super Pop! is the perfect mid-afternoon snack if you are craving something sweet, crunchy and healthy, especially the Dark Chocolate Almond Quinoa Puff, our personal favorite. (Available at select locations and online; 6 bars for $20)
