Eat This Not that Healthy snack swaps for the fall season!

Every time we pick up junk food, there’s always caution behind its consumption. While it’s okay to enjoy it in moderation, it is also important to look at alternatives that are healthier, while also being tasty and interesting. Then, you can fulfil your snack cravings without any inhibitions. Isn’t that the dream? So, when we say eat this, not that, we are talking about throwing out the junk food and bringing in HALO freeze dried fruit snacks.

Fried, salty snacks might be tasty and fun but are bound to cause problems in the long run. They are linked with weight gain, cholesterol and several conditions related to the heart. Knowing when to do a healthy snack swap is so important to move towards a healthier lifestyle.

Eat This Not That. Here’s why.

1. Maybe it’s time for a lifestyle change.

The most obvious argument is that HALO freeze dried fruit snacks are healthier than traditional snacks. For starters, they’re not fried or baked, but freeze dried using the process of lyophilisation where the water content alone is removed from the fruit. So what you get is a purely healthy snack, as opposed to other junk food.

2. What’s in your snack?

HALO freeze dried fruit snacks go through a very transparent and high-end process where there are no added preservatives or sugar. Even if other traditional snacks are homemade, you can’t avoid adding sugar, excess salt or even food additives to make them tastier. Here, what you see is what it is. No more, no less. It is also gluten-free and vegan-friendly, which means it will be widely enjoyed by people with all sorts of likes and dietary restrictions. So if you or your group of friends/family have a lot of eating restrictions, you know the answer.

3. The whole world knows you’ve eaten snacks.

Junk food usually leaves behind crumbs, bits and oily fingers in its wake. It makes a mess of your clothes and your surroundings and you usually need to give your space a good clean to get rid of all of that. With HALO freeze dried fruit snacks, there is no oil, no crumbs. Just bite-sized fruit pieces that are easy to eat and leave no mess behind. Have a snack in bed, on the couch or anywhere you like and leave no trace. Isn’t this reason enough to swap junk food for HALO?

4. You need your tastebuds to experience the magic.

Now here’s the tricky part. The main argument with healthy snacking is that it’s boring and bland and one cannot stick to it in the long run because of it. The allure of junk food is too high to be loyal to healthy snacking. While this has been true in the past, HALO is here to prove you wrong. Its sweet and tangy fruit combo is bound to make you hooked! The best part is, it has the familiar and wonderful taste of all your favourite fruits in their natural glory while being crispy- just like any other junk food! Try one for yourself and we guarantee you will be going back for seconds!

5. What’s the expiry date on this one?

The oil in the junk food ensures that they do not last long or become stale quickly. They can’t be stored for long and that might be a heavy negative on their side. While even fresh fruit doesn’t last that long, freeze dried fruits can be put to the ultimate test. Removing the water content stops the microbial reaction in the fresh fruit that causes the decay in the first place. So, their freeze dried counterparts last way longer and stay fresh and crispy. The best part about HALO packaging is that they’re resealable zip-lock packets, and so you can keep your snack airtight for as long as you need.
