Lisa, the Health Nut

I'm lisa and I loooove healthy food!  The lifestyle I chose to live is eating only natural or organic food products, minimally processed whenever possible.  What I can't stand is that people may  automatically assume all "health food" that I eat isn't flavorful or tasty.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!  Why would I eat stuff that doesn't taste good?  So my mission is to spread the word that "healthy" does not mean "tasteless".  Healthy food can be just as yummy as the not-so healthy types!   I'll let you know what foods are good, and which ones aren't so good. :)

Yumnuts Naturals Chocolate Slow Dry-Roasted Cashews

Combining two of my favorite things- chocolate and cashews, is Yumnuts Naturals. This company makes these snacks without any artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, no added oil, and they are gluten free. They come in 6 flavors, Sea Salt, Spicy Cajun, Toasted Coconut, Honey , Chocolate and Chili Lime. According to the website, “Nuts contain the protein, smart fats, like oleic acid, and essential minerals to help us perform at our best. We use the best natural ingredients to create a product with a simple ingredient statement that is both healthy and yummy. We start with premium jumbo cashews and use a special flavoring technique to add a delicate dose of delicious seasonings that ensures that every Yumnut, in every batch is truly yum.”

The folks over at Yumnuts Naturals sent me the Chocolate Slow Dry Roasted Cashews to try, and I was so excited! I opened the bag up once I received them, and had a few. I can certainly agree with the “YUM” aspect of this product! These were awesome! I especially liked that the cashews were pretty big- and there weren’t a lot of halves or pieces in the bag. Each buttery tasting cashew was covered with a sweet, light chocolatey coating, that gave a little bit of a crispy crunch to the outside. Really delicious, and what a snack! It satisfied both my hunger and my sweet tooth, and it certainly was hard to put away the bag after having some of these!


These get 4 1/2 stars in my eyes. Absolutely delicious and just a great alternative when you want something both savory, satisfying AND sweet!  The ONLY reason these don’t get 5 stars is because they have added sugar, but is still only 6 grams of sugar per serving


1/4 cup is 160 calories, 11 grams of fat, 12 carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugar, and 4 grams of protein.
