We all know I like to snack.

Being in school I am also always looking for healthy snacks to take on the go. Sometimes my lunches remind me of when I was a kid and my mom still packed my lunch. I don’t know about you, but I got your cookie cutter brown bag lunch. A sandwich of some sort, chips/crackers/cookies and if I was lucky maybe a piece of fruit. But I’m going to be honest, I think that piece of “fruit” was usually a fruit roll up or fruit snacks. I wasn’t the healthiest of an eater back in the day, but you know what, I was a kid and let’s be real that’s what kids eat.

Growing up, I kind of miss those lunches, but I now know that a lot of those items are not the best nutritionally. And the older we get, the better we need to care for our bodies. (I’m not promoting feeding children loads of processed foods, I really think we need to be more proactive in providing our children with healthy food choices, but it is what I ate growing up, and I’m not dead so I really don’t think an Oreo here and there will kill anyone.)

But back to today and my life now. Growing up on things like Cheez-Its and Wheat Thins, they hold a special place in my heart. So what’s a more health conscious girl to do when she gets a craving for that little orange square?

Well, Fiber Gourmet came to my rescue.

Fiber Gourmet takes these classic crackers, but offers a lower calorie, higher fiber option.

Being the huge snacker I am, I knew I had to try these!!

They not only offer crackers, but also offer pasta as well.

I of course had to try the crackers.

Since those little cheese squares hold such a special place in my heart I broke into the plain cheese flavor first.

I’m going to be completely honest, one thing I love about the original Cheez-It is the salt. Yea, I’m a a salt girl. These were actually not salty, and lightly baked, which to all you salt avoiders is a huge thumbs up. I did love that they were so light and airy. A great alternative to the original cracker.

Next I tried the Nacho flavor for an on the go snack for school.

Ok guys, seriously. These were amazing. I mean, I know it’s just a cracker, and it’s just nacho flavoring, but I am a spicy cracker type of girl and these satisfied both of those cravings. So I highly recommend this flavor. (no really go buy a box right now)

Lastly I tried the Wheat Thinables. I’m not going to lie, I was the most excited for these because I love Wheat Thins, I will be honest in saying I was a bit disappointed in these.

The crackers were extremely dry. But I solved that problem by dipping them in one of my dessert hummus creations. Nothing that stuff can’t fix.

Overall I like the options Fiber Gourmet gives in term of a healthier cracker. Extra fiber is always a good thing especially if you are trying to curve a hungry growling stomach in the middle of class.

What’s your favorite type of snack?

Did your mom pack you the typical brown bag lunch when you were growing up?
