Navitas Review and Giveaway


Closed #43 

I workout a lot and my eating habits...Well, lets just say are not as healthy as they should be to keep my body at it’s best. My unhealthy cravings get worse during my crazy schedule and change in fitness schedule. My crazy cravings often lead to a quick snack filled with sugar or salt or carbs, but what I need instead is a much healthier grab-and-go snack I can carry around with me. I need something like the Navitas Power Snacks I recently had the opportunity to try.



All the ingredients in the new organic Navitas Power Snacks are certified organic and raw. They are also not filled with artificial colors and flavors. They are dairy free, GMO-free, gluten-free, vegan and are packed with fiber, antioxidants and many other wonderful beneficial ingredients.

What I received: an 8 oz. bag of Cacao Goji Power Snack and an 8 oz. bag Blueberry Hemp Power Snack. Of the two flavors, I preferred the Cacao Goji to the Blueberry but the blueberry was good too. I was also sent a BPA-free Camelback water bottle celebrating the "Smoothment" program. I love this bottle and use it daily at the gym and everywhere else I go. The design is attractive. The top with lift spout and straw makes it a perfect for on the go water bottle.

The power snacks come in bite sized pieces in resalable bags and I like that. It makes it easy to grab, eat and go. I can taste the date flavor emphasis in the bites sizes, but this isn’t a bad thing. It just a new flavor that took me a little getting use to and when I did I couldn’t stop snacking on them. When it comes to food, texture in the food is really important to me. Food, especially snacks, especially healthy snacks, have to have a bit of a crunch, need to be moist and easy to eat without crumbling all over the place. I was pleasantly pleased with the textures of these bite size snacks. They have a soft, chewy consistency to them with a nutty crunch texture to them.

The only thing I regret is not joining the Smoothment. I went through the power snacks too fast to try and make a smoothie, but looking at the brochures sent to me with the samples, I am really interested in trying the Choco-Maca-Nana Shake energy smoothie (even the name is energizing) and the Tropical Detox Smoothie. The good news is I can shop for Navitas products I need to make these blends at my local HEB.
