I am a fully converted WHOLE FOOD/CLEAN EATING girl!
But that doesn’t mean that I don’t still like the occasional snack in
a package that gives me that “grabbing a KitKat” at the local gas
station kind of feeling.
I mean….I’m human….not Super Woman!
I snack several times a day….and I usually grab a piece of
fruit….a handful of almonds…a smoothie….or even a small cup of
However, I do find it really important to have SPECIAL snacks for
specific events and feelings….LOL…..that won’t derail you from all
the hard work and dedication that you’ve committed to.

It is important to check the labels of all packaged snacks that you are
considering. You want to stay within you AIP stage….because no snack is worth an accidental and unplanned reintroduction that you
aren’t prepared for. It is also important to remember….that no
packaged snack is as good for you as RAW food….so save these items
for occasional times and special circumstances. Do not rely on these
to fill you up or nourish your body in the way that your AIP daily
I’ve tried many snacks…..and have enjoyed most of them. I will
admit it is nice to have so many options nowadays! Just a short while
back the selections were still very limited. The need for AIP
compliant foods is finally being recognized which is very exciting
since this is no doubt a way of life for many of us!
I’ve listed here my SEVEN favorite snacks to date:
Natural Delights Date Rolls (coconut, almond and pumpkin spice)***
Paleo Angel Balls (my fave are the Orange Cranberry)
That’s It Bar (my fave is apple/blueberry)
Cacao Bliss (on everything…LOL! ok….on apples and banana
slices…and even on dried mangos!)
Bare Apple Chips (especially the cinnamon ones)
Terra Plantain Chips (sea salt…I don’t like the sweet version)
Lara Bar (Cherry Pie)***
***contain almonds which are a successful reintroduction for me
Remember…..I am never without a ziplock bag of almonds and/or a
fresh apple, carrot or banana in my purse….as they are my go-to
snacks. However I completely can relate to the desire to just tear
into a package and enjoy something yummy. So give these snacks a try
if you haven’t already! And if you have discovered a favorite AIP
computable snack I would love to hear about it!
