I’m always on the lookout for healthy, portable snacks.
(Bonus if they don’t need to be refrigerated or make a mess.)
When The Good Bean reached out about their lines of roasted chickpeas and no-nut bars, I was in the middle of the ocean, wishing I’d packed more snacks. The company sounded so unique (nutrition bars made with chickpeas?!), and I knew I had to try them and share my findings with you.
Many of us have food allergies and sensitivities, and are working to find foods that don’t upset our stomachs or give us hives. I happened to be trying an elimination diet when The Good Bean products arrived, and while I “cheated” a little by having added sugar and not sticking to the “food combining” rules, they didn’t upset my stomach at all.
Each serving of roasted chickpeas or nutrition bar has:
-as much fiber as 2 cups of broccoli
-as much protein as an egg
-as much folate as 3 cups of spinach
-40-60% less fat than most fruit-and-nut bars
AND… they just happen to be delicious. They were also perfect for helping to stave off the hanger on a recent trip to Trader Joe’s. (Don’t EVER shop when you’re hungry!)
The Good Bean would like one of YOU to try out their goods, too! Just leave a comment telling me about your favorite fridge-free snack. (I’m a student now, and need all the help I can get!) For extra entries, Tweet the giveaway and/or share it on your Facebook. Easy peasy!
I’ll pick a winner on Wednesday, February 20. Good luck! And happy Sunday
