Father’s Day is quickly approaching! For those of us who have healthy dads or grandpas, here are our top picks for the 5 natural snacks Dad will love on Father’s Day:
No celebration is complete without a good old shot of tequila, right? This Father’s Day, you’ll want to check out Suavecito Tequila, which is produced from highland grown Agaves containing the highest concentration of sugar. This means that you can enjoy it on the rocks or as part of your favorite adult beverage. Suavecito offers three different blends (so all types of dads can enjoy):
- Blanco: sweet with a light mint finish
- Reposado: rich with a caramel aftertaste
- Anejo: aged for a year and a half for a wood-and-cherry agave taste
Dad needs his protein fix! If that’s the case, there’s no better snack than ProTings. The Brooklyn-based company delivers a whopping 15 grams of protein per bag. The protein source is pea protein (in case vegan dads are wondering) and is combined with sunflower oil and flax seeds. Proteins comes in four delightful flavors: Chili Lime, Southern BBQ, Nacho, and Toasted Sea Salt. ProTings is gluten-free, non-GMO, and contains no meat by-products. Score!
Does Dad love chicken but hates buying anything except free range? Hip Chick Farms is great for an easy family dinner. The chickens come from Mary’s Free Range Chicken farms, where they are raised on a high quality vegan diet. Each batch of gluten-free Hip Chick nuggets, meatballs, fingers and wings is made fresh before being flash frozen, preserving the taste and texture. Hip Chick Farms has been featured on the Food Network and is definitely taking over in popularity.
Kick off Dad’s morning with a breakfast made of pupusas from Tres Pupusas. These pupusas are produced with organic, non-GMO corn masa, are naturally gluten-free, and are traditionally served with a side of curtido (cabbage slaw with vinegar) and salsa roja. The complete vegan, naturally gluten-free, organic corn made product range includes Kale & Pinto Bean, Green Chile & Cheese, Spinach & Cheese, Pinto Bean & Cheese and Black Bean & Sweet Corn flavors. Can you say “Good morning?”
If Dad is new to the healthy eating journey, any of the offerings from Namaste Foods are a pretty good place to start. All Namaste Foods offerings are free of GMOs and are Kosher-certified. From baking mixes and soups to pizza crust and dinner mixes, Namaste has a wide and diverse product range. The big sellers however, continue to be the baking mixes, found within their “cookie, cakes & desserts” line. Let’s get cooking!
