Eat Out / In Shape / It's Fare / It's Life

Dieting is Such a Snap with Snap Kitchen

Snap Kitchen is the dieter’s candy store. You’re exhausted. You’re sick of eating plain chicken and steamed veggies. OR you tired of cooking all the food you eat because everywhere uses butter as the primary ingredient.

Enter Snap Kitchen, where everything is less than 500 calories and you have dozens of options, not just a salad with the dressing on the side. I could live there—specially since I started my Whole 30 diet about 2 weeks ago (with a minor pause for a wedding). Guess what! Snap Kitchen has a Whole 30 menu and, well, lists all the ingredients on the packaging, so you know what’s up.

So, what was on the menu for my Snap Kitchen treat? I thought you’d never ask.

Gluten Free Non-Dairy Paleo Sodium Conscious Vegan
210 calories
Pineapple, Apple, Fresh Turmeric Root, Thai Basil, Jicama

SO juices freak me out. They have so many things, what if i don’t like one of the things in it? (I can be a picky diva, tbh.) I thought the pineapple would overwhelm, and I liked the idea of that. I was wrong. I tasted the jicama and what I assumed was the root mostly, but it was pretty refreshing! Definitely still scared of juices, but I could easily stomach this one—root and all.

Chicken & Sesame Chopped Salad11350391_10204399960628997_1467973112_n

Gluten Free Carb Conscious Non-Dairy Paleo
470 calories
Chicken, Napa Cabbage, Red Bell Pepper, Kale, Carrot, Jalapeño, Green Onion, Cashews (dressing on the side, tho).

This salad didn’t need a drop of dressing to be delicious (I’ve noticed that about chopped salads, all the flavors mix!). I couldn’t get enough of this salad. I was so full at the end of it too, so much chicken. I can’t even believe how much loved it.

Oops too hungry. I forgot. Enjoy this professionally taken photo from the Snap website…

Crispy Chicken

Gluten Free Carb Conscious Non-Dairy Paleo Sodium Conscious
300 calories (for the small)
Almond-crusted sliced chicken, roasted carrots with kale and walnut pesto.

I love this so much and mainly because its something “crusted” that is still gluten free. Rejoice. Since I was full from the salad, I saved this for dinner. The small was pretty filling honestly… but maybe I’d get a medium to play it save. Pro tip: A large is two smalls, so one large can pretty much last you for lunch and dinner with maybe an extra side of fruit or nuts.

Here are the other new menu items that I just might cheat on Whole 30 for…

  • Peach oatmeal (brb drooling)
  • Asian beef noodle bowl (how much do I miss pastas….)
  • Shrimp fra diavolo (I miss pasta… alasta…)
  • Sichuan beef

And the ones that are on my list to try in my Whole 30

  • Watermelon juice… nothing sounds better to me.
  • Tomato gazpacho
  • Banana pancakes
  • Grass-fed beef sausage and egg

Not intrigued?
