Cracklins vs. Pork Rinds: What Makes them Different

You’ve seen them featured on social media, lining the shelves in grocery stores, and maybe even served fresh in restaurants in place of bread or chips. Pork rinds and cracklins are making a big comeback in food culture, but the truth is they never really left! Just like fashion, the world of food goes in cycles (we know, we’re shocked that low-rise jeans are coming back too), and we tend to see classic ingredients and recipes make their way back into the fold after being out of the spotlight for years. This is exactly what’s happening with these crispy, crunchy...

20 Simple and Healthy Snacks for Work

We’ve all been there before – stuck at work again with nothing good to eat. Your energy dips, your focus wavers, and you might even get a little moody. Your coworkers should know by now not to mess with you when the hanger sets in! Sure, there’s the vending machine right around the corner from your desk, literally staring you in the face. But you know deep down that those treats are not going to give you the quality, sustained energy you need to get through your workday. So what the heck are you supposed to eat? A candy bar...

16 Healthy Snacks for Kids

Humanity has accomplished quite a lot in our short time on Earth. We discovered fire, invented the wheel, built civilizations, split the atom, and even sent a guy to the Moon – not a bad start. But despite all those achievements, we’re still struggling with a simple feat: getting our kids to eat healthy! Parents have tried it all, but nothing seems to work. Those little ones still seem to go for the most sugary, salty, starchy snacks around, and TV commercials don’t help (and you know what, they’re right, those cartoon characters on the cereal boxes are awesome). Trust...

Here's What the Non-GMO Label Means

Grab any snack off the grocery store shelf and you’ll see labels galore Some of them just tell straight facts about the contents of the bag or box – amounts of protein, fiber, or nutrients. Other labels are a little harder to read and require a bit of background knowledge to understand. Multiple organizations and government bureaus get involved in the labeling process, and every country has its own rules. Some regulations even vary across state lines, so rules regarding labels may shift within a matter of miles. One of the more controversial of the bunch is the non-GMO label,...

Why You Should Choose a Plant-Based Diet

We’ve watched a lot of diet trends come and go over the past few years, from low-carb crazes like Keto to the prehistoric eating patterns of Paleo. People try to lose weight by eating only soup, getting rid of gluten, or enduring long bouts of fasting with only electrolyte water to sustain them. The plant-based diet is a much more natural way of eating that can help you attain health and fitness goals without headaches or confusion. The dietary concept is exactly as it sounds: eat whole foods from plants and keep the animal products off the table. It isn’t...

The Best Pizza Flavored Snacks

Nothing quite compares with pizza in modern culinary culture. It’s the go-to takeout food for families across the western world and fills the freezers of grocery stores to offer an easy, convenient meal on the fly.  Pizza is America's favorite food—but it's also Italy's and Israel's and basically anywhere that people have taste buds. Meat-eaters love pizza for the indulgent beefy toppings, vegetarians enjoy it with veggies and cheese, and even vegans find workarounds that allow them to get in on the fun. The bottom line is that pizza rules, and you aren’t alone if you want to eat it...

How to Make Food Choices on a Soy-Free Diet

Soybeans have been part of the human diet for centuries, starting as a simple vegetable native to Southeast Asia and spreading throughout the industrialized world as a major cash crop. Nowadays, you can’t stroll down the center aisles of the grocery store without seeing soy-based foods around every turn. From chips and crackers to meat alternatives like tofu and tempeh, soy is everywhere, but not everyone sees it the same way. Traditionally, soy has a steadfast reputation as a healthy food, and many scientists still back that claim to this day. However, research has emerged in recent years suggesting that...

12 High-Protein Snacks that You Will Feel Good About Eating

Protein – it’s what every fitness influencer, celebrity athlete, and TV doctor is talking about these days. Protein is a key player in the trio of major macronutrients alongside carbs and fats, earning tons of positive press for a few reasons. First off, protein is key to maintaining strong muscles, vital organs, and healthy skin, nails, and hair. It’s also nourishing and filling, meaning you don’t have to eat very much to feel full, so it can be helpful if you're aiming for weight loss. The key point, however, is that the average American does not get nearly enough protein...
