Who doesn’t love a sweet treat around the holidays? I think we are all familiar with eating at least one cookie too many, and there’s nothing wrong with indulging a little during this time. However, what’s not so great is the feeling you get from eating excess sweets or ultra-rich foods, and it gets in the way from really enjoying this special time of the year. I think we’re all familiar with kale chips by now, but did you know that they come in sweet flavors too? Alive & Radiant makes a few seasonal flavors that are sure to keep your sweet cravings at bay. Now you get to enjoy the best tastes of the season with the nutrient boost of kale, while not having to worry about excess fats, sugars, or artificial ingredients.
You can’t get through Fall without pumpkin spice, at least I know I can’t. Did you know the infamous PSL at Starbucks and other coffeeshops is not only non-vegan, but it also contains preservatives, additives, and a ton of added sugar. Why waste your money on an unhealthy coffee beverage when you can enjoy a bag of these sweet Pumpkin Spice kale chips? The simple list of ingredients is: kale, cashews, coconut palm sugar, cacao butter, pumpkin spice, lemon juice, vanilla and salt. Not to mention, you don’t get the caffeine crash from these either.
Another classic fall and winter flavor is salted caramel, which again gets a bad rap thanks to all the cookies and ice cream that come out at this time of the year. These Sea Salt Caramel kale chips are the complete opposite, being dairy/egg-free, gluten-free, raw, yet still just as tasty! They get a fantastic, sweet caramel-taste from the coconut palm sugar, vanilla and cashews and no artificial ingredients or colors are included in this delicious snack. I would definitely recommend picking up at least two bags of this one.
If you thought the last two flavors sounded great, take a look at this. Does a healthy White Chocolate Peppermint treat sound too good to be true? Well, think again! I think I have to say that this was my favorite of the three, and I was seriously amazed at the amount of flavor on each piece of kale. Cacao butter, vanilla, and peppermint oil take the place of the milk chocolates, sugary peppermint syrups and other ingredients that your body doesn’t agree with. These will also give you the energy to get through all of your holiday plans while staying on track with a healthy lifestyle. Who needs to wait until January to start eating better? Buy some bags of Kandy Kale on their website and have them shipped right to your door, before the holidays come to an end!
