A few days ago, I reviewed the SAHALE SNACKS product, Valdosta Pecans.

Today, I'm reviewing another of their wonderful products, Cashews with Pomegranate + Vanilla.

These cashews are positively addictive. They are lightly salted with sea salt for a nice crunch. The vanilla is subtle and the pomegranate makes for a sweet burst of flavour.
I was impressed with the 'lightness' of the nuts -- not heavy at all. It's a very energizing snack -- and extremely portable -- the packs fit well into purses or backpacks.

Serving size is 1/4 cup and only 150 calories -- and fits quite nicely into a healthy eating plan. Sodium content is only 90 mg -- just 4% of the of the RDA! With 4 grams of protein and 5 grams of monounsaturated fat (the 'good' fat) -- this is a great, healthy snack anytime!

In conjunction with SAHALE and their product representatives, I am very pleased to be able to offer three (3) prize packs to my readers!

Sahale Snacks has a wonderful Facebook page. Please stop by and check it out! You'll learn more about their products and where to find them.

Sahale Snacks on Facebook!

Just leave a comment with your name, email address, and a short note telling me how you incorporate nuts / fruits into your daily eating plan!

I'll choose three (3) winners on Thursday afternoon!

Good luck and don't forget to leave a comment!

Have a wonderful day!

4 weeks ago I started on Weight Watcher's for the umpteenth time. My beginning weight was 300.1 pounds. How did I get so heavy?!?!?!?! Eating all the wrong things of course. As of last Monday I have lost 11.4 pounds and have decided that I truly am in it for the long haul this time. I figure it will take me at least 2 years to get down to a reasonable weight for my size/frame/age. I eat almonds every day for the crunchiness I need and have fruit with breakfast and again as my afternoon snack. I'd love to try your nuts, they sound delish!

I have already lost 46 lbs but have another 62 lbs to go before I reach my goal weight. I use nuts and fruits to add fiber to my diet so that I can feel full. Several strategies: adding 1 tsp. unsalted roasted sunflower seeds and 1/4 cup blueberries to my morning cereal [Kashi 7 grain nuggets], I add pecans to salads for added crunch, I add slivered almonds to freshly steamed green beans, I use walnuts or pignoli nuts in pasta dishes, I poach pears in white wine for a sweet but relatively low-cal dessert, I stuff baked apples with nuts, cinnamon and raisins.When winter comes I'll be adding nuts and fruit to my daily bowl of oatmeal.

Anything with almonds, pecans or pomegranates are on my "happy" list!

How I love nuts! These sound really good. I always thought nuts were pretty much off-limits for dieters, but not any more!

Allison said...

I love, love, love nuts...almonds, pecans, cashews, peanuts! They're easy to grab and filling, I just hate that pecans are so expensive.

I daily eat nuts with a couple of pieces of dark chocolate. I usually get the raw nuts without salt at the nut bar at our Safeway or King Sooper. I make up small snack bags and keep them on hand to grab when I'm on the go.

It's interesting, because about 10 years ago I didn't really love nuts, but I've become more and more of a fan! My favorites are almonds and cashews!! It's great that they are high in protein and make a nice snack, as long as I don't eat too many!

Thanks for the review!

These nuts sound soooo good! I try to eat a handful of mixed nuts before every meal to keep me from over eating.

I've tried a small sample pack of the cashews and they were really tasty! i haven't tried any of the other sahale snacks though- would definitely love to give them a try!

whole fruits are actually my favorite snack, so i have no trouble incorporating those into my diet. as for nuts, i chop some up and put them into my museli mix which i love love love eating uncooked like trail mix!

thank you so much for the chance to try out these snacks. keeping my fingers crossed!

I'm a big fan of almond butter ants-on-a-log. I'm allergic to peanuts, and now that Maranatha has no-stir almond butter it's great to layer on celery sticks and dot with raisins. Healthy and makes you feel like a kid again!

Having Michael home has made us very conscious of how we eat, what we eat, and when we eat. I LOVE summer fruits, so grapes, strawberries, nectarines, peaches and melons are part of our breakfast every day, and even if we DO indulge in a small bowl of ice cream in the evening, it's got fresh fruit on it.

I LOVE sunflower seeds and put them on the salad I have every day (and I have to admit I grab a handful out of the bag here and there during the day!!)

Great contest, Terri!! These snacks look very interesting!
