I love to make Easter baskets for my young children but I refuse to fill it with junk candies. I completely understand that a sweet treat is a wonderful experience for kids (and moms too) once in awhile so I am always looking for candies that are made with all natural ingredients.
I recently discovered SunRidge Farms™ which has a delicious line of all natural candies that contain no artificial colors, no artificial flavors and is sweetened with naturally evaporated cane juice or malt. The Milk Chocolate Rainbow Drops are so delicious and remind me of a much tastier, natural alternative to those “other” hard shelled chocolate candies. These delicious naturally colorful chocolate morsels use real vanilla, cocoa butter and contain no hydrogenated oils. Finally, a wonderful treat that I can put into those Easter eggs and feel good about serving to my children!
For healthy and delicious snacks, SunRidge Farms™ is exceptional with their all natural mixes. My favorite is the Berries & Chocolate Antioxidant Mix which really provides me with an energy boost as an afternoon snack or post workout. This wonderful snack mix is packed full of protein, fiber and minerals. Of course the chocolate stars are the real “stars” of this mix and the combination of almonds, cashews, dried cranberries, dried cherries, dried blueberries and roasted peanuts really elevates this to a decadent and delicious snack. I like to keep a ¼ cup serving in my bag at all times for when I need a healthy boost.
My husband recently turned 40 and is really interested in maintaining a healthier lifestyle. He works the night shift and at times finds himself running short of energy late at night. I pack a serving of the Omega 3 Men’s Energy Mix in his lunch box and he said that it makes a big difference in his energy levels. I like that it is low in sodium yet doesn’t lack in taste. It has plump raisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflowers seeds, papaya, dark chocolate raisins, walnuts, cherries, pine nuts and many other high quality ingredients that make the optimum trail mix for men.
Another favorite is the unique Wasabi Tamari Almonds which really packs a bold punch of flavor and has a fantastic crunch. Even my children love these roasted almonds that combines these two delicious taste sensations.
SunRidge Farms™ is proud that their products do not contain chemical fertilizers or pesticides in the growing process and the fruits do not contain sulphur dioxide in the drying process (I am very strict about avoiding sulphur in foods that I serve to my children). Overall, I was extremely impressed with the quality of every product that I have tried so far in the SunRidge Farms™ line of organic and natural foods. I appreciate that the prices are quite affordable so it doesn’t break my budget to feed my family healthy and nutritious treats and snacks.
SunRidge Farms™ is based out of California and I was so impressed to learn that their facility is powered by 70% solar energy. They also take their mission to promote healthy living so seriously that they pay their employees $5.00 a day to bike to and from work…..how fantastic is that!
