We all want to eat healthy; we have the best intentions, right? But, as much as we know the basic food pyramid, and understand the correlation between fats, sugars, and weight, we often reach for the less than ideal choice. For most of us it is not a lack of understanding 'x is better for you than y,' but a lack of know how. We reach for those neon orange cheese puffs because they happen to be in the hallway vending machine, and we gulp that calorie laden soda because we crave something sweet. But convenience and flavor don't have to be compromised for the sake of better eating decisions. Now, more than ever, there is a huge market for health minded snacks that curb cravings. The best of these snacks, in my opinion, have minimal ingredients and are tailored to every diet. Momma was always great about finding budget friendly ways to make snack time healthy, and I was raised eating homemade applesauce and fruit roll ups. Not everyone has the appliances, or the time, to make their own snacks, so brands such as goVida have stepped in.
goVida features fruits and flavors such as Dulce De Leche and Cape Gooseberry. The result is an exotic snack that intrigues the palette in flavor and texture. Each individual serving pouch is sealed at the peak of freshness and includes 2 contrasting, yet complimenting, flavors. Entirely soy, gluten, and nut free, you will find no preservatives or chemicals in goVida.
Kiwi and Mango appealed to the other half, who seems to have a fondness for the somewhat exotic Kiwi fruit. Finding ripe kiwis locally, without breaking the bank, can be a challenge, so I appreciate goVida preserving them and their flavor in these pouches. Also high in Vitamin C, and great for the immune system, this blend runs on the sweet side, with the kiwi offering a hint of tang. The large Mango slices are uncommon for freeze-dried blends, that tend to feature chips and fractions of fruit slices. Of the three varieties there were less individual pieces overall, but, perhaps, the best 'fresh' flavor, for me. I'm not a fan of wither of these fruits (for texture), and eating them in goVida form really helps me expand my culinary boundaries.
