This may fall on the heavy snack section but a snack item nonetheless. Beet Fusilli is actually just a fancy name for twirly pasta made from fresh beets, organic semolina flour and water. The corkscrew pasta shape holds light and smooth sauces pretty well, making it a great pesto pair. Shop here.
Why are these brittles on the healthy snacking list? Aren’t brittles loaded with sugar? Well, these brittles use organic molasses and organic cane sugar which are both lesser evil compared to refined sugar.
