I recently attended a healthy-living presentation by Lisa Pounds, the founder of Houston-based Green Plate Foods. I loved hearing from Lisa about her inspiration to start Green Plate Foods: she wanted to see some healthier food options for her daughter and believes that everyone should have the option to buy healthy and delicious food made with clean, all-natural ingredients. She combined this desire with her talent for baking and founded a company dedicated to creating nutrient-dense and yummy baked goods and snacks.
I got to try some of their most popular snacks and cookies, and I instantly became
a fan of addicted to the Nubbler fruit snacks, the Cherry Chocolate flavor in particular, although the Blueberry Pistachio are a close second. These fruit snacks by Green Plate Foods are not your typical fruit-leather or sugary candy-type fruit snack. The Nubblers are raw, gluten free and vegan made with only 5 ingredients. Besides being flavorful and delicious, they are also super convenient and easy to pack as a snack in my kids’ lunch boxes or for a trip to the park.
So where to find them? Whole Foods has the popular Nubbler fruit snacks into all 29 stores across the Southwest Region (Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana) and H-E-B all over Texas. For those of you in the rest of the country, Green Plate Foods plans to expand and offer their products nationally, so keep an eye out for them in your local store. One bite into one of these healthy Nubbler fruit snacks and you’ll be hooked, too.
