SSL’s Gluten-free Top Picks of the Week: Healthy Grazing Snacks

I am having so much fun creating one-of-a-kind little houses. This one has a wreath made from salvaged, rusty wire, and a doorknob made from an upholstery tack.

Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee…and if y’all are like me…it feels good to take a break with a hot beverage and enjoy good conversation about everything from handmade goodness to tales of warmer days! Oh, how I miss the sun…and warm temperatures! *sigh* Well, until the sun decides to visit again…I guess I will just paint more little houses yellow *wink*

Today on the blog, we are chatting about SSL’s gluten-free top picks of the week–which are all about healthy grazing snacks. I must confess that I do not like big meals…I am more of a grazer…snack a little here…snack a little there. I realize this is probably frowned upon…but in my defense…I do try to make healthy choices.

This is one of my go-to ingredients in my homemade trail mix. It is deliciously sweet + has a bit of a crunch. The name says it all *smile*

Yummy for the tummy

Yummy for the tummy! Notice the three grams of fiber–see I told y’all a grazer can snack healthy *smile* Click here for more on dang.

Every trail mix needs a bit of dried fruit--just to add that bit of sweet and chewy. I chopped my dried fruits up pretty small because dried fruit is high in carbs.

No added sugar--just the sweetness of nature *smile*

These little cookies are packed with flavor.

These little cookies are packed with flavor. I like to enjoy them with a bottle of Smart Water while catching up on my social media and emails.

I have never eaten 18 of these at one time. The flavor is so rich that I am usually satisfied after about 5-7 cookies. Click here for more on Go Raw.

20150109_173600_resizedThanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we chatted about healthy grazing options. In this busy world we live in, it is challenging to sit down and eat three, square meals a day. But don’t despair, and don’t reach for that potato chip bag! Instead, snack on homemade trail mix *smile*

Remember what doesn’t bother me might bother you. If you have gluten intolerance, Celiac, or diabetes–please read those labels carefully!!

Some of the little houses have painted fronts and backs. I am hoping to get brave enough to open an online shop--I am getting there *smile*
