YogaEarth Keen-Wah Decadence
Quinoa meets dark chocolate in these certified-organic, gluten- and soy-free nutrition bars. The protein-dense seed isn’t the only impressive ingredient on the panel, which reads like a who’s-who list. Almond butter, coconut nectar, chia powder and chopped almonds offer flavor, fiber and protein in Coconut Almond, Cayenne Cinnamon and Chocolate Chia flavors.
The Pure Pantry Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
Finally, we can all have our cake and eat it too with this allergen-free Dark Chocolate Cake Mix. Made with a proprietary blend of brown-rice, sorghum, quinoa and potato-starch flours, the mix is tastier than Betty Crocker and a lot healthier. It’s free of refined sweeteners and made with maple sugar and sucanat, so don’t feel guilty enjoying cake.
The Comfort Gourmet Mac & Cheese
This isn’t just gluten-free noodles and cheese, folks. Comfort Gourmet’s Mac & Cheese tastes like the true indulgence it should be. Sharp cheddar, Swiss and Brie cheeses cover quinoa pasta, caramelized leeks and asparagus. It doesn’t get much better than this. Bonus: One serving delivers 14 grams of protein.
Sambazon Blended Breakfast
This ready-to-go certified-organic smoothie combines organic soy yogurt with açaí, strawberries, bananas, quinoa and chia for 5 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein in only 180 calories. How does it taste? Rich in berry flavor, not too strong on banana; it also has a creamy, smooth texture. In other words, delicious!
Van’s Natural Foods Multigrain Crackers
Van’s takes on the snack category with this new gluten-free multigrain cracker. Made with brown-rice flour, millet, quinoa and amaranth, these crisps offer substantial flavor and texture. Think Wheat Thins for the gluten-free crowd. The powerhouse grains deliver 3 grams of protein per serving, and I love that they’re made with GMO-free canola oil.
