Have you noticed lately that certain snack foods are becoming “better for you” snacks? You wouldn’t think to see that down the cracker aisle but that’s changing, and I’m here to tell you about it! I’ve been talking about this for years, and that is how real ingredients is what we need to fuel our bodies. Real, wholesome ingredients are what I prefer to feed my family and what we like to snack on everywhere we go.
No doubt I’m talking about GOOD THiNS- The Wheat One- Ancient Grains here. I’m so thrilled to tell you that these snacks are made with wholesome goodness and none of the bad stuff. Because so, GOOD THiNS are now on my family’s go-to snack hiking list. Yay!
You could probably spend a day of hiking without packing a thing, well except water, but why? Hiking is supposed to be fun and adventurous. Keeping your body fueled with wholesome snacks that begin with “real ingredients” will make your day hiking much more enjoyable. But before hitting the trail, you’ll want to grab our five family favorites.
5 Family Favorite Day Hiking Essentials
- A good pair of walking/hiking shoes
- Lots of fresh drinking water
- A lightweight backpack
- Wholesome snacks, such as GOOD THiNS- The Wheat One- Ancient Grains
- Fresh fruit like apples, berries or bananas
Of course, there’s sunscreen, but everyone knows to take that along, and other items that might be essential, but these are our family favorites.
When it comes to snacks, the main thing to remember is to take something light and refreshing, nothing too substantial, or that will weigh you down, like junkie candy bars and sodas. When I find a snack that my son likes and that are baked with wholesome goodness, you know I’m going to buy it. His favorite is The Wheat One- made with 100% whole grain wheat and ancient grains like quinoa, amaranth & millet which is my favorite too!
GOOD THiNS start with real ingredients (like wheat, potato, and rice), combined with enticing flavors (like garlic, spinach, and sweet potato) and baked thin and crispy without any artificial flavors, colors, cholesterol, partially hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrup.
Check out these other flavors:
GOOD THiNS- The Potato One- Sweet Potato – made with “real” sweet potatoes and are 60% less fat than the leading regular fried potato chip. After tasting these, I think I have a new fav!
GOOD THiNS- The Beet One- Balsamic Vinegar & Sea Salt – a deliciously great baked snack with a tangy twist.
I found my GOOD THiNS- The Wheat One- Ancient Grains at my local Kroger store. Find your local Kroger/Kroger Family of Stores to get your GOOD THiNS.
