One of the few, but biggest, challenges of following a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet (WFPB) is not always having time to make sure you’ve got the fresh foods within your grasp that you would like to eat. Life just happens. Adulting happens..
So, rather than derail our healthy habits by grabbing processed junk, we can prepare by keeping some of these very healthy, very delicious, whole food plant-based options on hand at home or at work. None of these have any chemicals, preservatives, franken-gredients, and virtually all are organic and non-GMO.
These are excellent choices for grab-and-go, pre or post workout snacks, kid-friendly treats, or just spicing things up at meal time. So, plan ahead for those inevitable time crunches and check these bad boys out:
Why are these things so damn awesome? This is why:
Certified Paleo (except Hillside and Baja)
Soaked/Sprouted & Activated Nuts
Doctor In The Kitchen
Larabar Bites, Gluten Free, Chocolate Macaroon Pouch, 5.3 oz (Pack of 6). I’m not confused as to why these bite-size little treats are quite popular. That’s probably because
1. they’re damn good
2. you can get them virtually anywhere
3. they come in some really delicious flavors, and/or
4. they’re inexpensive
This is a well-sought and favorite brand (as it should be). Not only do they sell these delicious raw cookies, but they also sell a variety of sprouted seeds and snack bars as well. We haven’t been able to find these in stores very often, and when we do they only have one or two flavors/products. Amazon carries it all though, so we just subscribe and save 😉
Raw Wraps Spinach- Gluten & Soy Free, Vegan & Raw, Paleo (Quinoa Seeds). These wraps are especially versatile, and super convenient! They are very low in calories, high in heart-healthy fiber, and gluten/soy free. They come in Kale, Spinach, and Spinach tacos. What can you do with them? As much as your imagination will allow and then some!
Wrawp Organic Veggie Flatbread, Original, 5.3 Ounce. If you prefer a different kind of wrap, these Wrawps will definitely get the job done. Use these (or any wraps) to make tasty vegan meals such as pizzas, enchilada casseroles, burritos (you can freeze them and have them later too!), and even sweeter things like apple pie roll-ups.
Larabar Gluten Free Bar, Key Lime Pie, 1.6 oz Bars (5 Count). An excellent treat for those times that you want to go wild on a dessert, but you know better 😉 Key lime is a favorite here but they have dozens of other really yummy flavors.
Paleo Pizza Crust | Tomato Flavored Organic Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Nut Free and Vegan Pizza Crust. Anything you can do, I can do vegan! Pizza too, of course!! This raw crust makes for a very quick, nutritious meal and they are quite reasonably priced. Onion and Pineapple Pizza? Garden Veggie Pizza? Buffalo Jackfruit??
Mauk Family Farms
Mauk Family Farms Organic Sprouted Raw Acai Blueberry Crusts. This little known gem is quite the find for those who enjoy toast or breakfast crackers. And, it doesn’t stop there. Mauk Family Farms has several other flavors of these Raw Crisps, Raw Crusts, bulk seeds, and even spirulina popcorn!
BRAMI Lupini Bean Snack, Starter Pack | Plant Protein, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Low Calorie, Zero Net Carb, Keto, Lightly Pickled, Mediterranean Legume |Pack of 4, 5.3 oz (150g). Another delicious, grab-and-go, keto-friendly vegan snack. You don’t find too many of those that actually taste good and have zero garbage in them, so snatch some of these up to keep in the car or at work!
Please do keep in mind that companies do change their ingredients or processes from time to time, and it does take a great deal of time to sort through all of these, so please check the labels of any products you wish to purchase prior to purchase. Our efforts were focused on finding vegan products created with ingredients that are Whole Foods, and without refined oils, sugars, etc. so that they would fit into the lifestyle of whole food and plant-based eating.
