Eggcellent Easter Egg Alternative

Send the kids on a healthier hunt this Easter! Consider filling your Easter eggs with some delicious and nutritious selections from our bulk section! Some of our favorites include:

  • Turkish Apricots – rich in taste and color and on sale this week!
  • Raw Pecans – Research studies show that making nuts like pecans a regular part of your diet offers an array of health benefits including lowering risk for heart disease and assisting in weight control. – Dr. Liz
  • Organic Almonds – These stellar nuts are best known for their vitamin E content—more than 40 percent of needs in an ounce (about 23 almonds)! Studies show that almond eaters have lower blood cholesterol levels, thanks to heart–healthy monounsaturated fats as well as phytonutrients, which scientists know keep hearts in tip–top shape. – Dr. Liz
  • Raw Pecans – The king of nuts when it comes to the essential fat alpha–linolenic acid (ALA), which supports skin and brain health. Studies show that including walnuts in the diet regularly may also aid in weight control.
  • Organic Mango – A better sweet fix than candy, dried mango supplies a bit of vitamin A as beta carotene, a touch of vitamin C and 2 grams of fiber (though levels of these nutrients are higher in the fresh version). But dried mango is fat free, keeping the calorie count down to 150 calories for a 1.5 ounce serving (several strips). – Dr. Liz
  • Organic Banana Chips (sweetened) – A small handful of these sweeties supplies about 10 percent of potassium and vitamin B6 needs, two nutrients crucial for heart health. Banana chips also digest quickly, providing a dose of carbohydrate, which makes these chips a good pre–workout snack. – Dr. Liz
