5 deliciously simple paleo snacks

I hope everyone had a blast doing 13.2. If you haven’t done it yet, good luck – hope you like box jumps.

I don’t know about you guys, but I need about a million snacks to get me through my day. I know it gets discouraging trying to find snacks in the grocery store that are 100% paleo, but really there are a lot of options – you just have to be willing to take the extra time to look for them and ask the store staff, if necessary. Here are 5 things I found at the grocery store this week. With the exception of the Trader Joe’s almond butter, it’s all from Walmart or Target. Yes, really!

SAMSUNG Lara bars!

If you’ve been eating paleo for a while, you probably know about these. Totally natural fruit/nut ingredients, no preservatives, no sugar, sweeteners, etc. Until recently I was getting them from Trader Joe’s, since they sell them for $1.00 apiece as opposed to the $2.50 the local upscale grocery store asks for them. However, I don’t know when they started but the Walmarts in my area are now carrying them by the box! Yes, I’m ridiculously excited about this. They are about $5.25 for a box of 5.

 GoGo Squeez!

So these little guys are called GoGo Squeez Applesauce on the Go. I don’t personally consume them, because I’m over the age of 8, but my daughter LOVES them, and they’re 100% fruit and fruit juice. Yay for little paleo babies! I got a huge box of them for like 8 bucks at Walmart.

Available at <a href="http://www.target.com">Target</a> Crispy Green Mangoes from Target

I usually get my dried mangoes from Trader Joe’s, but they were out of the unsweetened, unsulfated kind I always get the last time I was there. These are freeze dried, so they’re crispy as opposed to chewy. However, they are actually surprisingly delicious, totally all-natural and only about a buck a pop.

 Raw, Crunchy, Unsalted Almond Butter

Exactly how it sounds. Crunchy and almondy and delicious. 🙂 Available at Trader Joe’s. I eat this with everything.

 Naked Coconut Water

There are a lot of brands out there for coconut water, but this is definitely my favorite. There’s nothing added, just straight coconut water. They also have these in flavors like lychee and pineapple, but I think those have some other additives. What I do if I want some flavor for these is blend them with a strawberry or kiwi, and ta-da – instant deliciousness. Bonus – they’re only about $1.50 at Walmart.

If you have questions about other snack ideas, comments, or you know of some hidden paleo secret and want to share, please let me know. Happy snacking!

  1. Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one!

    It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the
    same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
