I am a self proclaimed snacker. Just ask my husband, I could skip all meals everyday and just snack away. Snack food items can get me in trouble though! That is why I am careful about what I am snacking on. My favorite snacks are homemade trail mix, veggies with dip and my most recently favorite, Van’s Natural Foods Say Cheese Crackers!
VAN’S NATURAL FOODS
If you haven’t heard of Van’s Natural Foods, they are a great gluten-free option for snacks. They have delicious products like cereals, snack bars, crackers and other breakfast items. While not all of their items are gluten-free (a lot of them are), they are all-natural. This means you won’t be finding artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup or funky preservatives. Just simple ingredients like whole grains.
VAN’S NEWEST PRODUCTS
Van’s Natural Snacks just added some new tasty snacks earlier this year. They are healthy and nutritious… not to mention satisfying. They have already won several nutrition accolades and food awards for these new additions. The newest healthy snacks: Cranberry Almond Snack Bars, The Perfect 10 crackers, Fire Roasted Veggie Crackers and Say Cheese! Snack Packs – single serving.
When I received the package from Van’s I also got some recipe cards. My favorite is for the Van’s crackers & dip – The Tomato and Feta Dip. So healthy and refreshing.
Tomato and Feta Dip Recipe
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- zest whole lemon
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon basil, chopped
- 3 Roma tomatoes, diced
- 4 green onions, chopped
- 8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
In a small bowl, combine garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, oregano, slat, pepper, and basil. Gently fold the tomatoes, green onion and feta into the mixture. Serve with Van’s Fire roasted Veggie Crackers and enjoy!
I found the crackers to be a delight alone or with a dip. I am excited about the new additions to the Van’s line, and I look forward to Van’s adding more and more products. They are truly one of my favorite all-natural crunchy snack items!
