Base Culture Paleo Sticky Granola
When picking a granola (or any pre-packaged snack), consider whether you recognize the ingredients, advises Allison Stowell, MS, RD, CDN. You won’t have to worry about unrecognizable ingredients in Base Culture’s Paleo Sticky Granola, which is made only of Honey-glazed Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds, Pecans, Sunflower Seeds, Diced Fruit (Apples, Peaches, Pears, and Apricots) Maple Syrup, Coconut Oil, Cinnamon, Sea Salt. It’s “sticky, sweet, and amazing” and “satisfied my craving for dessert,” said one Amazon reviewer. If you check out how you can make your own granola from scratch, you’ll get some idea of the ingredients you’ll expect to see in store-bought granola.

Veggie chips tend to earn a health halo—they’re vegetables, after all—but many brands are steeped in oils and additives. Bare Snacks chips are baked—with zero oil and are also free of fake veggie powders, starches, and fillers. They’re just real vegetables that are sliced and baked.
