Why CARBSMART? (LIMIT CARBS)

These snacks are a great way to keep your blood sugar stable, energized, and fit within your carbohydrate count.
 

A low-carb diet limits carbohydrates — such as those found in grains, starchy vegetables and fruit — and emphasizes foods high in protein and fat. A low-carb diet is generally used for losing weight. Some low-carb diets may have health benefits beyond weight loss, such as reducing risk factors associated with type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

 

The American Diabetes Association provides these insights:

 

Carb Smart Snack Profile

•250 or less calories per label serving

•Less than 15 grams total carbohydrate

•At least 3 grams fiber

•At least 5 grams protein

Why GLUTEN FREE?

Gluten is a protein found mostly in wheat, barley and rye. A gluten-free diet is a must for the 2 percent of the population diagnosed with celiac disease, to avoid serious intestinal inflammation.

 

Some people have a lesser condition called non-celiac gluten sensitivity and may feel better on a gluten-free diet.

Why VEGAN?

A plant-based diet can be good for your heart.

 

If you’re eating mostly or only fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, whole grains, and meat substitutes like soy, you may cut your odds of getting heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes, compared to a diet that includes meat.

 

Please note, some favorite VEGAN snacks, which may be better identified as treats, often have more sodium or sugar but are plant based and thus fit the Vegan lifestyle of no animal products such as meat, eggs, or dairy products…Oreos anyone? Yes Oreos are Vegan, but definitely fit in the treat category! -WebMD
