Is eating healthier one of your New Year's resolutions?
It's about that time of year again...when we make resolutions for the upcoming year, with great intentions to improve our diets, lose weight, eat less junk food and live better. For a variety of reasons, some of us will fail. Most often it is because we go about it wrong, either in the choice of diet or in trying to change our lifestyle in a way that does not work for us.
Willpower is not always the issue, depriving ourselves is. Depriving yourself can be depressing and often lead to binging. But depriving yourself of your favorite foods does not have to be part of the plan. Indulging in some healthy snacks can actually help keep you on the right track without making you fell deprived.
That is why I am truly happy to introduce you to Late July Organic Snacks. Click Here to see what the author of Eat This Not That, David Zinczenko has to say about their products.
Late July Organic Snacks is a family owned and operated company that cares deeply about family and the integrity of their products. Not only are all of their products certified USDA organic and but on any given day you can find three generations at work including six-year-old Stephen and two-year-old Benjamin.
Late July sent us a box each of their Mini Endangered Animal Sandwich Cookies in Milk Chocolate and White Chocolate and other assorted goodies. The Mini Endangered Animal Sandwich Cookies are very delicious. I enjoyed both of the flavors. The Milk Chocolate is a vanilla cookie with a milk chocolate filling; They are certified USDA Organic. They are the perfect size for snacking and taste pretty good. My favorite of the two is the White Chocolate, it is a chocolate cookie with a white chocolate filling. I'm not a big fan of organic cookies normally but they were very good.

Like I said, I am not a big fan of organic cookies nor am I of crackers but I loved the Organic Vanilla Bean with Green Tea Sandwich Cookies . Organic Dark Chocolate Sandwich Cookies and the Organic Bite Size Cheddar Cheese Crackers, that were also in the package I received.
I really did not think I would like the Vanilla Bean with green tea, it seemed like a odd combination... But they taste so good! The Bite Sized Cheddar cheese crackers taste like a similar National Brand but so much lighter and cheesier and the kids really liked the Cracker Sandwiches, especially the Peanut butter.
Overall the whole family enjoyed the Late July family of products, and have already purchase some of our favorites from the Grocery.
One lucky reader will win a package of Late July similar to the one I received !
