The next time – maybe this afternoon – you are sipping glass of wine, reach for a healthier snack.
Reach for a bag of Navitas Naturals Power Snacks and the “salty” guilt will disappear. The selections include Cacao Goji, Citrus Chia, Mulberry Berries and more. All are organic, gluten and dairy free, high in fiber and vitamin C with no refined sugar.
The sun-dried white mulberries, touted as a superfruit because of its antioxidants, received a tasty review from Robert Pavy, M.D. a Redwood City, Calif. neurologist and wine collector.
“The organic mulberries are very flavorful and that is an added reason to enjoy a handful. I think these berries would pair well with a viognier, pinot gris or non-oaked chardonnay,” he said. “These are also an excellent source of vitamin C and resveratrol. Snacking on these white mulberries is a glorious way to celebrate a healthier lifestyle.”
With its hint of mocha, cherry and dates, Cacao Goli could be a surprising accompaniment to a glass of old vine zinfandel, merlot or port. Pass on a rich, calorie-laden chocolate torte and bite into one of these rich little squares.
With the essence of orange, star fruit and citrus, the Citrus Chia is perfect as an ending to a light fruit salad with toasted walnuts and blue cheese. A crisp sauvignon blanc or Riesling would be a delightfully guilt free match for the bite-sized power snack.
