I first tried this when my co-worker brought it to work. I instantly fell in love with how satisfying the salt and the crunch was. Not only that, but it didn't make me feel bad about eating snacks. Now this is my go-to snack during those afternoon cravings at work. Great alternative to potato chips!

My favorite on-the-go snack!! It's so easy to grab this on my way out of the door and the quinoa helps me stay full throughout the morning until lunchtime! There is still granola in the bar, so gluten free folks BEWARE. However, the chocolate nut medley is my favorite of the bunch and I make sure to pick up a few every time I go to the grocery store.

What can I say? This is about the best candy I have ever eaten. Dark chocolate is very high quality and melts in your mouth. The quinoa gives a delightful crunch and the blueberries are a perfect ending chew. I am dieting and when I absolutely NEED an indulgence, just a small piece of this fills that need  and the calories, oddly enough, are not very high.

These are addictive. Most bars are so sweet that I have trouble eating the but these, wonderful! Sort of like crispy biscuits with a kick. I prefer this one to the milder basil bars but both are delicious. I'm not much of a sweet tooth so it's nice to snack on something salty for a change. Like the earlier reviewer I purchased these at Target. I hope Kashi continues making these, don't know if they are completely healthy but I don't feel as bad as when I eat chips for that salt craving. Great for a snack at work or on a hike.

I'm a big snacker. I love baked Cheetos but let's be real. Even though they're baked, after you eat a whole bag, you still feel guilty. Let me introduce you to I HEART KEENWAH puffs. It's made with quinoa, that South American super food! They're crunchy! Tasty! and Full of protein. Go ahead and try them. They're so good, you'll still think you're being bad. All the great taste and crunch without all the guilt.

This and the chocolate one are so delicious and great with a coffee or tea. I usually have one in my bag and even got my father on the bandwagon. They are a decent value at only $3 a box and I'd recommend to anyone who likes a good granola type bar.

This is the perfect pasta for a healthy version of mac n cheese! I make vegan cheese out of potatoes, carrots, garlic, lemon and nutritional yeast. Then I use these noodles! Now instead of a high carb, high fat meal (regular Mac n cheese), I'm getting quinoa and veggies in such a fun way!

I always have a bag of this in my desk at work. It is the perfect healthy snack to give you enough of a full feeling of satisfaction without making you regret what you just ate. The sweet and salty mix in this is absolutely perfect.

I was extremely sick for a long time and doctors couldn't find a diagnosis for me. They knew I had an autoimmune disease but couldn't find which one.... I was recommended to cut gluten and dairy from my diet. Going gluten free wasn't hard for me, but my friends and family didn't want to be subjected to it because they were healthy... When I made this gluten free pasta, no one even realized it was gluten free... It tastes great and isn't as expensive as some other gluten free products/brands. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants or needs to cut gluten from their diet but also loves pasta.

We love these and get them all the time for a quick healthy side dish. Be sure to mix the cheese powder and milk before mixing in with the noodles.
