Entrepreneurial companies are making healthier snacks that have a significant impact on the planet. They have been sending me samples of their products to spread the word. ZENB is one of my favorites:
ZENB takes vegetable parts that are typically thrown away – stem, seeds and skin, and turns them into delicious and healthy snack bites and sticks. They add some diced almond, agave or date syrup, almond powder, cinnamon, nutmeg or coriander, sea salt and black pepper.
