My favorite meals are snacks. A little of this, a little of that. While I’ll (almost) never say no to chocolate, I tend to prefer salty over sweet.
I was finishing up my grocery shopping a few months ago when I spotted Pearls Olives to Go on the shelf. I love green olives, and thought these little cups would be the perfect salty addition to workday lunches. The mess-free, single-serve cups are easy to open and don’t contain any liquid, making them perfect for snacking on the go.
Just a couple days later, my friends at Sweat Pink/Fit Approach reached out to see if I would be interested in reviewing the product. I had already whipped through the first package I bought, so saying ‘yes’ was a no-brainer. Pearls Olives to Go are gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, cholesterol-free, vegan and contain no trans-fats or GMOs. Most importantly (kind of): they’re really, really good.
Snacks for Lunch
I’ve been pairing a cup of Olives to Go with some of my other favorite lunchtime snacks to round out the meal. A few standbys:
- Almonds, plain or flavored (Current obsession: Blue Diamond Honey Dijon)
- KIND bars
- Roasted chickpeas
- Simple Caprese salad
- Cheese (duh)
- Cut vegetables: peppers, carrots, cucumbers and snap peas
- Baked or roasted sweet potatoes
For those of you in Boston, you’ll find a coupon for Pearls Olives to Go in the Globe, Herald and other area newspapers on Sunday, May 3rd. Pearls Olives to Go can be purchased locally at Shaws and Demoulas/Market Basket, and at many nationwide retailers including Target.
