Savory, Sweet & Nutritious

For someone who is always on the go I need to plan what my meals and snacks are ahead of time to avoid making a quick and potentially bad decision. I'm fortunate that my partner works for Central Market and is exposed to a variety of nutritious foods that I get to try. He know's I'm a sucker for nutritional bars, trail mixes and snacks in general, so over the past few months he's shared a few new products with me.

The snacks listed below are not only savory, sweet and delicious but they're healthy and filling. Pick them up at your local HEB or Central Market and let me know what you think. I hope you love them as much as I do!

MADE BY TRUE: True Jerky

I've tried both the beef and turkey jerky and they're by far the tastiest I've had. They're soft, flavorful and have enough spice to keep you wanting more. My personal favorites are the Tai Chili Mango, and the Maple Glazed Pepper. They even include a string of dental floss--how thoughtful is that?!?

Tai Chili Mango Product Highlights:

  • 14g Protein/Serving
  • Locally Sourced Beef
  • Gluten Free
  • No Nitrates or Nitrites
  • No Hormones or Antibiotics

MADE BY TRUE: True Jerky Trail Mix

Combining their flavorful jerky with trail mix is a genius idea---you get to enjoy a snack that is both salty and sweet! They use a combination of almonds, cashews, cranberries, figs and raisins in the trial mix blends. I like All About That Baste, and Don't Go Bacon My Heart.

All About That Baste Product Highlights:

  • Protein: 12-20g of protein per bag
  • Healthy carbs like edamame beans and cashews provide the perfect crunch and create a fully balanced snack
  • No nitrates or nitrites
  • Gluten free
