Organic Alternatives to Your Favorite Unhealthy Snacks

Since I've made the switch to buying exclusively organic food, I've had to give up some of my old snack and junk food favorites. And with them, I've given up high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors/colors and preservatives.

Most of the time I try, very hard, to eat healthy whole foods. But there are times when I just want a cookie or a bag of chips - and while I try to limit these times, I don't deprive myself. Luckily for us, organic and natural packaged food manufacturers have heard our cry, loud and clear, and have created many products that are almost identical to the conventional brands we know and love. Here are a few of my favorites:

Instead of Nabisco Oreos, try:
Instead of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers, try:
Instead of Quaker Chewy Granola Bars, try:
Instead of Lay's Potato Chips, try:
Instead of Hershey's Chocolate Bars, try:
If you have other organic/natural junk food that you enjoy, please feel free to share!
