The Packaged Goods

In our modern lives, sometimes it's not practical to cook, because let’s be honest, who always has time for that? When time is a constraint, we can often be drawn to prepared foods, yet feel concerned about what we’re eating. There’s a lot of buzz in the health world about not eating packaged foods - and for good reason! So many of the processed and packaged foods in the stores are laden with chemicals disguised as food (and some are not-so-disguised…).

Thankfully, there are some companies out there who are helping health-conscious eaters marry healthy with convenience. And contrary to popular belief, with these brands, healthy is not tasteless nor completely restrictive and unenjoyable. So get ready for some great suggestions to help you maintain your health-focus and enjoy delicious on-the-go foods!

These are brands I have personally used and can endorse. Many of these brands have additional flavors or product lines which I have not yet tried – these are marked with *. If these brands aren’t available in your local store, you can check out Thrive Market, a direct-ship company supporting healthy living brands, with completely sustainable packaging and shipping supplies.

You're also likely to find other great products out there! Please share your favorites here so that I can check them out!! All the products I suggest are gluten free and dairy free (my personal dietary needs) and represent my biggest rule of thumb if you're buying packaged foods: look for the fewest ingredients (8 or less is GREAT), and ingredients you can find in nature. Organic and non-GMO are also good things to look for, but finding products with simple ingredients is the best place to start!!
