FitMama: Healthy Snack Options for Moms, Part 2

FitMama: Healthy Snack Options for Moms, Part 2 1I have another healthy snack option for you to consider. MI-DEL Cookies are all-natural cookies made with organic/natural flour and without high fructose corn syrup.

Most of the cookies in the MI-DEL collection are "snaps": you'll find ginger snaps, vanilla snaps, chocolate snaps, oatmeal raisin snaps, and lemon snaps. MI-DEL also offers honey graham crackers and chocolate sandwich cookies. Many of the cookies are also offered in "all organic", "gluten free," and "dairy-free" varieties.

To help you get to know more about the cookies, I came up with some questions that you might ask and interviewed myself (weird, I know).

Q. What was your favorite MI-DEL cookie of the ones that you sampled?
A. Definitely the Oatmeal Raisin Snaps (they were sweet, but not too sweet)! I also enjoyed the Ginger Snaps.

Q. What was your least favorite?
A. Chocolate Snaps, although I should qualify that by saying that I'm not a big fan of chocolate-flavored cookies in general. I didn't try the gluten-free varieties or the chocolate sandwich kind.

Q. Are the cookies soft or crunchy?
A. Crisp and crunchy. These are snaps, not warm cookies right out of the oven. If you're in the mood for crunchy cookies that you can take with you on-the-go, these would fit in that category.

Q. Can I eat the Ginger Snaps to alleviate morning sickness?
A. Many pregnancy websites (including the "10 Ways to Manage Morning Sickness" article on the BabyCenter website and the "Ginger Eases Morning Sickness" study published on the WebMD site) suggest using ginger as a way to manage emesis gravidarum (a.k.a. "morning sickness"). Although the studies are preliminary and most physicians recommend only moderate uses of ginger, you might want to ask your care provider about taking ginger (perhaps in the form of ginger snaps) to help combat nausea and vomiting.

Q. Where can I buy MI-DEL cookies?
A. Thousands of stores across the country! Check out the full list here. You can also buy MI-DEL cookies on Amazon.com.

  1. I had no idea they would be in so many stores -- easy access so no reason not to grab some! Thanks for the great contest!

  2. I am currently cutting out all high fructose corn syrup and artifical ANYTHING from our family's diet. These cookies sound great! I would love to try some - we need more organic snacks stuff for kids to get hooked on instead of crap.

  3. I would love to win this for my husband to try, he is a diabetic with a big sweet tooth, and this seems alot healthier for him to eat than cookies you can buy in a store.

  4. Cookies, ah, cookies! What a delight that they are healthier than the usual suspects. Yum yum, I'd love to win!

  5. These actually sound good but I've never heard of them...strange since my second home is Whole Foods! Haha!
    I'll have to look next time I'm there...

  6. I'd never heard of these before. Thanks for letting me know...I'm a gingersnap girl myself & would love the opportunity to try them.

  7. So glad you introduced me to these. I've been trying to loose some baby weight and needed more ideas for a healthy little snack (kind of tired of celery sticks and apples)...these sound so yummy!!

    I love the interview with yourself! So cute! :)

    oh and thanks for sportin' my button on your sidebar! Good luck in my contest! :) Aren't contests just so fun?

  8. I've got a pretty powerful sweet-tooth, so I'm always looking for sweet snacks that aren't full of sugar and chemicals.

  9. I work night shift at hotel and after the audit is done I have 3 or 4 hours to try to stay awake so I snack and it is showing in my mid section. I'd love to try your healthy cookies.

  10. Just found out I'm diabetic, looking for healthier foods. Am having trouble finding snacks that I can have - they're either too salty or too sweet.

  11. Hi, Please enter me in your healthy cookie giveaway contest. My sister
    and I both really need them! Thanks,Cindi
