A little healthy hedonism goes a long way...
Whether it’s an emergency snack in the car or a sweet treat to put in your pocket when you’re out for a walk, there’s always going to be an occasion for snacking. This is my daily reality (and there have been MANY borderline hangry moments…) and rather than be unprepared and turn to whatever’s closest available, which so often looks like chocolate or chips, I decided to stock up on whole food snacks.
Finding Shelby’s Healthy Hedonism has been the best discovery and now that Dipped & Dusted almonds are in my life, I’m never looking back. I always found eating plain nuts a little ‘too boring’ for my liking so even though I would have a big bag of natural almonds stashed away, I would often find myself bypassing them and even going out of my way to get my hands on something more ‘fulfilling’. The Shelby’s Dipped & Dusted range has done just that, satisfied my craving for a sweet hit while still substantially providing the goodness nuts and real ingredients.
In a nutshell, that pretty much sums up the philosophy of Healthy Hedonism - a sustainable indulgence… the very best of both worlds. They’re all for having it ALL, and who am I to say no?
These are a couple of my favourites from the Shelby’s Healthy Hedonism range that I’ve tried and loved:
Espresso Dark Chocolate Dipped & Dusted Almonds
I love that these have just a hint of coffee so you can get that balance of sweet dark chocolate to espresso, balanced just right with the crunch of the almond.
Pistachio, Cranberry & Himalayan Salt Bar
These bars are full of pistachios which is a TREAT! Pistachios have always been a favourite of mine but the effort involved in de-shelling them would so often put me off.
Another feel good factor about the brand is that I love that these snacks are born locally from Melbourne cafes - and there’s really nothing that beats the quality, consistency and innovation that is Melbourne’s cafe culture.
Shelby’s Healthy Hedonism Dipped & Dusted and bars are available online at www.shelbyshh.com or at Woolworths in the health aisle.
