Healthy living requires a whole lot of discipline. Truth be told, the road towards it is not always a walk in the park. But hey, everyone’s got to start somewhere, right? After all, it’s often the small repeated acts that lead to bigger habits, which in turn, directly affects your lifestyle. This is precisely why we at Breakfast HQ thought about “snacking” and how it could actually do your body a favor if you munch on the right stuff. And since this month is about giving healthy eats our best try, here are our top wholesome merienda faves.
1. Edgy Veggy’s Lentil Chia Crackers
When the clock strikes three in the afternoon, the whole world just seems to slow down and you suddenly feel all groggy and de-motivated. Don’t be tempted to go crazy on convenience store chips, as this would only make matters worse. Instead, load up on some high energy snacks, like Edgy Veggy’s gluten free Lentil Crisps with sesame, chia, and flax. Rest assured, you’ll be on top of your workload in no time.

4. Take Root’s Kale Chips
How can one resist chips? That is the question. Going cold turkey on it might prove to be torture for some, so how about redirecting it to a better choice? Take Root’s Kale Chips maximizes the natural umami of the kale, which brings about the same (or even more!) addictive level all that artificial flavoring normal chips have in its arsenal. Count us sold on this one.
