Noshies: A Revolution in Healthy Snacking

My friend Debra is a certified nutrition counselor, professional trainer and fitness guru - she knows a lot about health and what the body needs, and of course, what it doesn't need. She's one of those amazing athletic types that can bend herself in a pretzel. Don't hate her just yet. There is something in it for you. She makes snax.

Debra's snax are called Noshies. They're homemade balls of energy, loaded with protein, complex carbs, a little bit of good fats,  and only uses sweeteners that are low on the glycemic index, which means you won't have to come down from any sugar crashes with these. They are not vegan, however they don't contain any wheat, soy or refined sugar. The protein comes from whey, which comes from milk.

Each Noshie is rich in: Protein, Complex Carbohydrates, Omega 3 Fats, Fiber, and Antioxidants.
Noshies are also: Wheat Free, Soy Free, Flour Free, Refined Sugar Free, Artificial Sugar, Color and Flavor Free, Preservative Free, (And 3 Flavors are Nut Free). *

Enjoy 7 delicious flavors and my mini-review of each:

-Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie - peanutty outside, semi-sweet chocolate peanutbuttery goodness inside
-Chocolate Almond Macaroon - bittersweet, more cakey, absolutely delish - like a flourless chocolate cake but healthy! Oh, and hope you like coconut!
-Banana Nut Bread - nutty and banana-y - not too sweet and very satisfying
-PB&J - TBA - she was out of these when I ordered...makes me wanna try them even more =/
-Super Chocolate Trail Mix *nut free - if you like chocolate and sesame and sunflower and pumpkin seeds, this is your ball. There's also cherries and figs involved...fanchy!
-Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookie *nut free - zomg tastes like health in a ball - oatey and chewy and raisiny! I don't even like raisins!!! WTF!
-Chocolate Covered Apricots *nut free - WOW. Holy flavor. I love apricots and this was the first ball I tried. Tastes like a truffle with the cocoa on the outside, and inside it's a sweet, tart, fruity treat. I think I'm in love!

As a pregnant lady who loves candy, keeping these babies in my desk have stopped me from eating the Kit Kats I picked up last week during my last CVS run. They satisfy my sugar craving while actually providing my body with energy it needs, so there are no empty calories here. I'm addicted and I think you will be too!

To order, contact Debra at and if you mention "prosh", you'll get 10% off your first order through October 5!
