Healthy Foods You Should Know About: Savanna Orchards

Back in March of this year, I attended the 2011 Arnold Sports Festival and Expo in Columbus, OH (for the third time).  If you know me, you know that I LOVE going to the Arnold.  It’s always great to be surrounded by others that talk, live, and breathe a healthy, fit lifestyle.  At the expo, I met Ms. Kelly Gundrum, who was promoting a healthy snack company called Savanna Orchards.  I thought, “Savanna Orchards??  What in the world is that about?”  I’ll be honest, I was initially intrigued by the free snacks (don’t judge me, you do the same thing lol).  But to my pleasant surprise, those free samples truly introduced me to a great product. 

Coinicidentally, it was during this time that I began exploring the Paleo diet and lifestyle.  So when Kelly began discussing how Savanna Orchards provides healthy snacking options in support of Paleo dieting, I was very interested.  As someone who likes to include an occasional snack with his meal, I was convinced that Savanna Orchards could fit the bill.    And in all honesty, these snacks taste great!  My personal favorite is Moxie Crunch.

It includes cranberries, blueberries, cherries, walnuts, pecans, almonds, and the best part...grass-fed beef jerky!  

They each come separately, with a larger bag included to mix them together.  This gives you the option of mixing them together or not.  I usually include this with my post-workout meal.  And here are the nutritional facts:

This is only one of MANY snacks that are available at Savanna Orchards.  This one is just my personal favorite.  So check out the Savanna Orchards web site and see if there's anything you might like.
