2023 is looking like a year for change and growth as we all have navigated through the “new normal” post-pandemic and have found what the office setting looks like today.  I think we all can agree that setting is nothing without SNACKS! In this post we’re going to quickly touch on those snacks and recommend some healthier alternatives to really kick off the new year on the right foot.

From grain-heavy to grain-free – Siete

We have brought on a new brand, Siete, that is a grain free and delicious alternative to regular tortilla chips or Doritos.

Siete is a family-owned brand who is focused on creating food that can heal, and not harm our bodies. Swapping in their chips can offer a lower inflammatory option in comparison to others. Try them next time you’re stopping by your breakroom!

Flavors currently available: Sea Salt and Fuego

Make Way for Wave

The new “soda” in town! Wave soda has been added to our natural soda repertoire and it does not disappoint. Packed with all natural ingredients, no added sugars, 25 or fewer calories, has the added boost of naturally derived caffeine, and none of that other stuff – Wave soda is that beverage.

Flavors currently available: Tangerine, Mango, and Dr. Diego

The Plantain is the New Potato

Banana Joe plantains that is! These tasty crisps satisfy the need for a salty, crispy chip and are much cleaner than some potato chip alternatives. They are paleo, vegan, gluten free, and non-gmo certified. Pro tip – pair with a guacamole cup!

Flavors currently available: Sweet Thai Chili

A Healthy Cheese Puff?!

Say no more… Pipcorn has entered the building and is here to stay! Their heirloom corn cheese balls are packed with crunch and flavor and are also higher in fiber and antioxidants than their commercially grown competitors.

Flavors currently available: Cheddar cheese

Teatulia – from Garden to Desk

Adding Teatulia to our line-up of tea’s has been one of our favorite decisions yet. Their company is based on sustainability, and they take every measure to ensure that their tea is not only benefiting the consumer, but the ground that it is gardened from as well. Their organic tea comes direct from their garden to the can making it some of the freshest, best tasting, tea with the added benefits of caffeine and no sugar! Grab a Teatulia in lieu of the high sugar, nonorganic alternatives.

Flavors currently available: Black Tea, Hibiscus, White Tea Peach

We Dare you to just have one Skinny Dipped Peanut Butter Cup

These little bites are the perfect any-time-of-day tasty treat that you deserve! With only 2 grams of sugar there’s literally no reason to say no to having a couple. ☺ These little bites’ ingredient list outshine their competitors by far and they are keto friendly and non-gmo! Just try one!
