Healthy Snacks with Real and Worthful

Finding healthy snacks for yourself and your family is becoming harder as more processed, sugar filled, nutritionally void snacks are being put on the market. Recently, I happened upon Real and Worthful (R.A.W.) and I just have to share this brand with you! Their snacks start out with mostly organic and raw ingredients and are all non-GMO, vegan, gluten free, and kosher certified. 


I got the chance to try their line of products and I am in love! The first product I went for was the Chocolate Coconut Macaroons. It's no secret that I love chocolate so, it is no surprise that I absolutely loved these. They are chocolaty and coconut-y but aren't overly sweet which I really like. They have a wonderfully crunchy texture and are great for a healthier alternative for your chocolate cravings.


Staying with the macaroons, the next product I tried was the Coconut Macaroons. These have the same crispy texture as the other macaroons and are so delightfully coconut-y. The only ingredient in both of these that is not raw is pure maple syrup. Everything else is raw and organic. Not only am I impressed with the ingredients, they taste so good! Such a good fix for a sweet tooth!


Up next are the Superfood Nut Clusters. These guys are so tasty and great for an afternoon snack or pick-me-up! They are made of almonds, cashews, maple syrup, macadamia nuts, raisins, cranberries, goji berries, maca powder, cacao nibs, and sea salt. With great, organic, and raw ingredients and awesome flavor, these are just all win and I will definitely be keeping them in the house.


The Dark Chocolate Cherry Nut Clusters feature almonds, cashews, cherries, maple syrup, macadamia nuts, cacao butter, agave, cacao powder, coconut, maca powder, sea salt, and cayenne powder. Just like the other clusters, the only thing that is not raw is the maple syrup. These are more decadent and a great fix for a sweet tooth craving! These were definitely approved by my two and three year old. 


The Tomato Basil Crackers are totally raw and extremely delicious. I wasn't expecting such a great, rich tomato flavor but they surely have one. I am sure these would be great with a variety of toppings and dips but I loved them on their own, right out of the bag. I took these with me to work one day for a snack and all of my coworkers loved them as well!


My absolute favorite snack I tried was the Red Pepper Herb Crackers. I do not like spicy things so I figured these would get passed to my boyfriend but instead of being spicy, they have an awesome sweet red pepper flavor that isn't overpowering. I fell in love with these! They have such a real and nutty flavor. You can really tell the difference the raw ingredients make. Everything tastes so much more real.

I am nothing less than impressed with Real and Worthful. Everything they offer is go tasty and are great alternatives to a lot of the snacks on the market. You can feel good about eating these and feeding them to your family! Be sure to check out their website to learn more. Also, don't forget to follow them on Facebook and Twitter to never miss any news.

  1. I'm interested in the crackers, the tomato basil, too, as I have been attempting to make them, trying to copycat some crackers I've seen. All looks great!
