Old London Snacks! OPA! & Sweepstakes! #Review #OldLondon

Hey All!

As you all know I’m from NYC and I grew up in a neighborhood that contained a lot of Greek residents. I had a lot of Greek friends growing up to say the least. One amazing product that my Greek friends introduced me to was Old London Snack Products! They make yummy products like Melba Toast, Bagel Chips, and Melba Snacks. I would love to eat these when I was young and I would eat them by themselves or with some Gouda cheese. That was my favorite way to eat them. I was so happy when I learned recently that I would have the opportunity to review these amazing snacks and essentially reunite myself with a snack that I haven’t had in some time.

It was great to introduce these snacks to my family as they are a great snack to eat as they are ALL NATURAL as well low in calories. So you can snack on a bunch of them with out feeling guilty! I have to say out of all the snacks we received we are all in love with the Bagel Chips in the garlic and herb flavor.

They have zero trans fat and taste ridiculously good!

As you can see they are about the size of a potato chip and you have to watch how many you eat so you make sure you don’t finish the entire box in one sitting as that’s how good they are, well to me at least! These snacks just make me want to yell “Opa!” which is a popular Greek term used to express excitement and cheer. Greeks find ways to celebrate their heritage, food and family every day. They seek balance in their daily lives by participating in outdoor activities and relying on a healthy diet of olive oil, grains, vegetables, fish and dairy. The beautiful terrain and ancient ruins make hiking a popular activity, while others participate in water sports along the many coastal shorelines. Dancing is also a vivid expression of everyday life, and a large part of social gatherings and celebrations.

You can do more than just eat these out of the box. You can make some great recipes with these snacks as well. Like these Cheesy Quesadilla Dippers made with Melba Snacks Whole Grain snacks. You can download this amazing recipe by clicking the picture below.

They’ve also partnered with Celebrity dancer Chelsie Hightower and a team of nutrition and culinary experts have partnered with Old London to help incorporate the spirit of Greek culture into your life with easy-to-manage health tips and recipes to support an overall healthy lifestyle. Here are a few of Chelsea’s personal tips:

  • Take your workouts outside. While a walk around your neighborhood might seem less exciting than a hike around Greek ruins, try to find something in your local outdoors that motivates and excites you. Explore a local park or a new neighborhood route to change up your fitness routine.
  • Make healthy meal choices. I try to stick to a Mediterranean influenced diet that is rich in olive oil, vegetables, fruit, fish and dairy. I enjoy finding recipes online and then trying them at home. Old London has some great recipes on their Facebook page.
  • Reach for healthy snacks. I keep smart snack options on hand to keep my energy up between meals like a handful of almonds, some Greek yogurt and honey or a few Old London Melba Snacks with hummus.
  • Go dancing. In Greece, dancing is a large part of any celebration or gathering. I love going dancing with friends;; not only do we have a great time but I also get a workout!
  • Love yourself. People come in all shapes and sizes, and what works on others won’t necessary work for you. Being healthy is about how you feel. Stop comparing yourself to others and begin loving the person you are from head to toe.

They’ve also partnered with Dr. Susan M. Kleiner, PhD, RD, FACN, CNS, FISSN to bring you some Healthy Living Tips.

  • Keep your body fueled and your mind energized by always combining carbohydrate-rich foods with protein and/or healthy fats.
  • Our bodies work like a clock. Create a food plan, including 5-6 meals and snacks throughout the day. Eat every 3 hours or so to keep your energy levels high and maintain mental focus.
  • Fuel yourself with carbohydrate and protein before and after exercise to maximize your workout time, enhance your strength and endurance, and burn more calories during and after exercise.
  • Carbohydrate-rich foods fuel your muscles and raise your mood. Include them at every meal and snack throughout the day to keep going strong.
  • Eat a plant-based Mediterranean-style diet rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts and seeds to bolster your immune system and feel your best every day.
  • Crunchy foods make us feel good. Add some crispy crunch to your diet by choosing naturally light and lean fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts and grain products with crunch that are easily portion controlled for low calorie, high fiber, satisfying snacks.
  • Eat before you are hungry to control your appetite and cravings. Plan small, frequent meals and packable snacks to keep you centered throughout the day.
