The food we eat comprises one of the most important components of our health, but eating well means much more than ditching carbs or going gluten-free. Rather than looking for foods to cut from our diets, let’s focus on those we should enjoy in abundance — whole foods rich in vitamins and minerals and packed with necessary nutrients. Discover the best ingredients, the value of buying local food or growing your own, and how wonderful it feels to truly nourish ourselves.

1. Salad on the Go

Salads are nutritious but not usually easy to eat on the run. Enter Salad Snax: a blend of organic kale, red cabbage, spinach and carrots, tossed with tasty dressing then gently dehydrated to preserve all those wholesome nutrients in a perfectly snackable form.

To Buy: $33 for six 1-ounce bowls, Go Raw

2. Trail Mix Treat

This flavorful, non-GMO SunRidge blend is bursting with trail mix favorites, and includes 60 percent of your daily calcium, 80 percent of your vitamin D, and other key minerals such as iron and magnesium. Buy it from the bulk section and you’ll always have a handful available.

To Buy: $9 a pound, SunRidge Farms 

3. Wholesome Dip Chips

Beanfields’ simple, four-ingredient White Bean chips leave nowhere for unhealthy additions to hide. With 5 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per serving, these non-GMO snacks make a nutritious alternative to corn chips.

To Buy: $20 for six 5.5-ounce bags, Beanfields Snacks

4. Pure Pizza Flavor

This tasty Seeds of Life mix of sprouted hemp, chia, sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds is seasoned with sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and onion powder. With iron and 6 grams of protein per serving, this snack is both nutritious and delicious.

To Buy: $6 for a 3-ounce bag, Organic Living Super Foods

5. Veggie Chip Twist

Take a break from kale chips and try vegan Brussel Bytes! These fiber- and protein-rich treats are also chock-full of vitamins — 60 percent of your daily vitamin A value and a whopping 90 percent of your vitamin C.

To Buy: $6 for a 2-ounce bag, Sejoyia
