Welcome to day 5 of My Plant-Based Family’s Holiday Gift Guide. I’m wrapping it up today with a snack guide. I don’t want to mislead you with these store-bought goodies, yes we strive to eat a low processed, plant-based diet. However, during the holidays it’s nice to have some junk food on hand.
As much as I enjoy cooking I really like having delicious snacks I can grab when company comes by or if we are invited to a game night. Yes, homemade is best but I also like to have some shelf-stable goodies ready to go.
Chips and salsa are a “normal” snack that is pretty inexpensive. You can pick it up at just about any store, even a gas station. Extra points if you spring for the guacamole.
Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame is a fun and delicious party food. My kids love them as much as I do. They fit in perfectly at Christmas parties, just put them next to the snack mix.
Cosmos Creations are gluten-free and vegetarian (some varieties contain dairy). Although made from corn there are no hulls or kernels so my husband can enjoy them too. Just be careful, they may be addictive.
YumEarth Organic Lollipops are the only candy my kids get. I keep them in the car for those times they are about to fall asleep on the way home from church or when I’m waiting in line at the bank drive through. The great thing about them is they taste good and have only good ingredients on top of being allergy-friendly. As a bonus they are 6 for $1 at my local Sprout’s.
Yesterday I mentioned the Vegan Cuts Beauty Box and today I have to share about the Vegan Cuts Subscription Snack Box. If you don’t know where to start, start with Vegan Cuts! When you find products you love, and you will, you can purchase them from their Marketplace. The photo above is October’s Snack box! Chips, crackers, a bar, a few gummies, Rescue Chocolate, coupons and more!
There are many other snacks you can take but these require no effort on your part, other than buying them, and the snacks will seem normal in any crowd.
Do you have a go-to store-bought snack you keep on hand for “emergency” situations?
