What is the HEB Healthy Living Aisle?

The Healthy Living Aisle contains an assortment of better-for-you snacks, drinks, protein bars and shakes, and kombucha. This aisle also often contains a bulk food selection featuring nuts, dried fruit, spices, and freshly ground nut butters. Join me as we explore this often-overlooked section and unveil the top ten snacks that might just become your go-to favorites.

Better-For-You Snacks, You Say?

Better-for-you snacks are typically healthier versions of your favorite snack foods such as cookies, chips and drinks that have lower added sugar, carbs and saturated fats than their counterparts. Some also take into account other dietary restrictions and are gluten-free, dairy-free or keto-friendly.

I know determining what's "healthy" is often a hot-button topic. I'm just here to tell you what tastes good, you can read the ingredients and determine if it's right for you.

Moon Cheese

Moon Cheese Oh My Gouda Flavor at HEB Grocery Stores

A 100% Cheese snack? Yes! These little round balls of cheese pack a mean crunch. At first, you don't get a lot of flavor, then after a few crunches, a yummy gouda tang kicks in. I think they're a perfect low-carb snack.

My husband and I agreed this was one of our favorite better-for-you chips we tried. Made with sunflower oil and almond flour, they're relatively low carb and the taco flavor is quite yummy. There is a slight chalky aftertaste but it doesn't bother me personally.

Rind Straw-Perry Dried Fruit

Rind Straw-Perry Dried Fruit Mix at HEB Grocery Stores

You open the bag and a delectable strawberry, apple and pear smell wafts into your nose. It's magical. As for taste, I like the mix of flavors but I almost wish it was strawberry and apple only because the pears are quite difficult to chew at times. Despite this, I really love this snack and plan to purchase it again.

Lemon Cheesecake Frooze Balls - Vegan Energy Balls at HEB Grocery Stores

Frooze Balls are vegan energy balls made from dates, cashews and coconut and filled with nut butters and marmelades. There are many flavors to choose from, but get the Lemon Cheesecake and thank me later. I'm not even usually a big lemon person, but this one hits, trust me.

Sugar Cookie Confetti Cashews

Sugar Cookie Confetti Cashews in Blue Bag at HEB Grocery Stores

I seriously love the sugar cookie confetti cashews, both these in the bag and the ones you can find in the bulk section. For that reason, they could not be missed from this list, even if they're probably less healthy than some of the other items listed.
