Eating healthy doesn’t have to be basic. Here are some alternatives to snack on — and they’re actually good for you.

Bug Out Bar

For those that are looking to snack daringly, try out these protein bars made of crickets! They take on the familiar flavor of chocolate brownie seamlessly while staying free of any high-intensity sweeteners. Because crickets require fewer inputs than any other traditional protein source, Bug Out Bar even helps to extend health beyond the human body and into Mother Nature.
