Funky Monkey Snacks Offer All-Natural Alternative For Dieters
As nearly every nutritionist and diet expert agrees, the key to losing weight is to consume fewer calories and increase one's daily intake of fruits and vegetables.
All well and good. But how to fit more fruit and vegetables into a busy lifestyle? And what's the answer when those midday snack cravings arrive?
Funky Monkey Snacks is at the forefront of the trend toward complete, wholesome, yet go-anywhere snacks. Its unique freeze-drying process turns 100% real fruit into crispy, bite-sized pieces that are nutritionally equivalent to their fresh counterpart. Each one-ounce package contains three of the four daily recommended servings of fruit.
"New Year's is a time when people resolve to eat better and lose weight," said Matt Herzog, president of Funky Monkey Snacks. "Replacing junk food and unhealthy snacks with Funky Monkey gives your body the vitamins and minerals it needs while eliminating empty calories -- and they're totally delicious."
Funky Monkey Snacks come in four varieties: Bananamon (freeze-dried banana and cinnamon), Carnaval Mix (freeze-dried banana, pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins), Jivealime (freeze-dried pineapple and lime juice), and Purple Funk (freeze-dried banana and acai).
At roughly 110 calories per package, with virtually no fat and about the same amount of sugar as a medium-sized apple, Funky Monkey Snacks are also USDA-certified organic and are gluten-free and kosher.
