OPA! To a Better You with Old London

I love to snack. I am always on the look out for healthier options {like popcorn & fruit} but sometimes, I just want salt- bad. It’s hard to find healthy, salty options- but I just discovered a couple that are super yummy: Melba Snacks & Bagel Chips!!

Bagel Chips

Made by the same company {Old London} that makes Melba Toast {which is yummy and a great bread alternative that makes for a light & easy lunch}, Melba Snacks & Bagel Chips make a great replacement to typical crackers & chips! They come in several flavors {Sea Salt is my favorite so far} & make a great snack right from the box or with your favorite topping. &The ingredient list is fairly easy to pronounce, which makes me feel a bit better about my snacking habit.

Their Facebook page has several recipes from Chef Johnny Iuzzini & Chef Christopher Kostow that look amazing. I want to try the Melba Toast Quiche:

For many, Summer means grabbing a snack on your way out the door, eating late & indulging at celebrations. But Old London has some great tips from Chelsie Hightower & Dr. Susan M. Kleiner to stay on track!

Chelsie Hightower

Chelsie’s Tips:

Reach for healthy snacks. I keep smart snack options on hand to keep my energy up between meals like a handful of almonds, some Greek yogurt and honey or a few Old London Melba Snacks with hummus.

Go dancing. In Greece, dancing is a large part of any celebration or gathering. I love going dancing with friends; not only do we have a great time but I also get a workout!

Healthy Living = Happiness. You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to plan a gettogether. Invite friends and family over just because! Ask guests to bring a dish, or set out appetizers like olives, cheese and Old London Melba Toast for everyone to enjoy. I’ve found being happy is a big step to staying healthy.

Love yourself. People come in all shapes and sizes, and what works on others won’t
necessary work for you. Being healthy is about how you feel. Stop comparing yourself to others and begin loving the person you are from head to toe.

Susan M Kleiner

Dr. Susan M. Kleiner’s tips:

Carbohydrate-rich foods fuel your muscles and raise your mood. Include them at every meal and snack throughout the day to keep going strong.

Eat a plant-based Mediterranean-style diet rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts and seeds to bolster your immune system and feel your best every day.

Crunchy foods make us feel good. Add some crispy crunch to your diet by choosing naturally light and lean fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts and grain products with crunch that are easily portion controlled for low calorie, high fiber, satisfying snacks.

Eat before you are hungry to control your appetite and cravings. Plan small, frequent meals and packable snacks to keep you centered throughout the day.
