Summer…it’s almost here! 🙂 Have a good one. 

Product Review: ShaSha Co. Organic Buckwheat Snack (Cocoa and Vanilla) :-)

ShaSha Organic Cocoa/Vanilla Buckwheat Snacks, 6oz (170g)

I’m always on the look-out for new snack ideas that are tasty, filling, preferably all organic and with a good or better than average ingredient/nutritional list. Happily, I found a new snack item recently that fits all that criteria. 🙂

ShaSha Co. Organic Buckwheat Snack(s) are crunchy, not too sweet, filling and have a nice cocoa kick to them too. And the ingredient list is ALL organic, I ♥ that.

I‘m trying to buy organic EVERYTHING these days, 😉 but when it comes to snack items, an all organic ingredient list can be hard to find. 

Here’s the nutritional info:

I love that organic buckwheat groats are the main ingredient.

Buckwheat is a very healthy food, you can read more about it here, and at many other sites online.

These snacks are also gluten free and IMO, reasonably priced at Amazon for less than $6. for a 170G bag. Considering the organic ingredients, not a bad price at all. 

I’m going to give some of the other flavors in this snack line a try too. I’ve previously enjoyed the ShaSha Co. Organic Spelt Lemon Snap cookies many times, and they definitely did not disappoint with these snacks either! 😉

Stop by the ShaSha Co. website (they are Canadian!!!) to read about all their other products and many positive initiatives too. 🙂

Happy Snacking, Weekend and Week Ahead! 

PS: If you have any fav organic and/or healthy snack suggestions to try (sweet or salty) please DO share! 

How About Organic Popcorn and a VERY Funny Movie? ;-)

If that sounds like a good plan for this week, you might want to check out my two latest reviews over at: My Real Life Reviews:

Tout Naturel Organic Popping Corn (microwave)

is THE best microwave popcorn that I’ve ever tasted! Oh so yummy good and certified organic too. 😉


And if you ♥ nostalgic movies based in the 60’s/70’s (like I do) you will ♥:

 starring John Goodman and a fabulous supporting cast.

This one has moved up into my TOP 10 fav comedy movies of all time.

LOL funny from start to finish! 😉

Hope you enjoy a “movie and popcorn night” soon with these two recommendations.

Let me know if you enjoy them and have a great week! 🙂

Looking for an Healthy Energy Bar that Actually Tastes GOOD??

NF Greens Bars

I’ve been looking for a:

GOOD-tasting, certified organic, satisfying, chocolatey protein/energy bar

for a LONG time!

I have finally found one that fits all the criteria I’ve listed and more!

Can you already tell that I’m really impressed by this product? 😉  

Whole Earth & Sea Pure Food Organic Vegan Greens Protein Bars:

Have a pleasing, not too sweet taste and with a nice texture too.

 They contain all certified organic ingredients (not just a partial list like so many similar products have).

Each bar supplies 15 grams of quality protein that provides energy for several hours. When I have one of these bars for breakfast or as a snack, I feel full, alert and energetic for 4-5 hours afterwards! That’s something I really appreciate.

And best of all IMO, each bar is coated with luscious organic dark chocolate. Oh so yummy good. 


Here’s the certified organic ingredient list:

Organic brown rice protein, organic dates, organic peanut butter, organic tapioca syrup, organic inulin, organic raisins, organic greens powder (organic wheat grass juice powder, organic barley grass juice powder, organic spirulina, organic blueberry, organic raspberry, organic broccoli sprouts, organic beet juice, organic carrot juice), organic chia seeds, organic buckwheat, organic strawberries, organic stevia extract, organic lycii berry extract, organic orange flavor. Chocolate coating: Organic dark chocolate (organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter, organic chocolate liquor, organic soy lecithin).


These bars are available at health food stores across Canada and in the US too. 🙂

Look for them and ask your local health food store/co-op to order them, if they don’t currently have them available. You will be glad that you did!

These are the best protein/energy bars I have ever tasted  and I’ve tried a LOT of protein bars over the years.Most of them were unpalatable and/or filled with questionable ingredients. And none of them were completely certified organic.

And as my regular readers already know, I always strive to eat certified organic products whenever possible. I think it’s a key factor in keeping healthy.

Natural Factors  (click to check out all the products in this new line) the company who makes these bars has a winner!

I’m  also hoping they add additional flavors for these bars in the future too, to keep things interesting. 😉

Let me know if you give them a try. 


Got the Munchies??

lundberg rice chips

I’m all for healthier snack choices like: fresh fruits, veggies, seeds and nuts

But sometimes, it’s just got to be a “chip” snack to really satisfy that craving. 😉

If you’ve been looking for a healthier, chip-type snack that actually tastes good, read my new review of Lundberg Rice Chips.

Happy Snacking! 🙂
