Dandies: A Marshmallow Make Over

They’re Vegan and better than ever!

In 2008 Dandies Marshmallows arrived on the scene. It all started with a Dad who had wanted his son to enjoy Marshmallows around the campfire. The only issue was all Marshmallows contain this ingredient called gelatin – collagen obtained from various animal raw materials. His son being a Vegan could not eat them. This is when Ryan Howard a Food Process Engineer went to work on creating the first vegan marshmallow. Dandies Marshmallows are 100% vegan – made with no gelatin, but that’s just the beginning of this marshmallow make over.

They are Gluten free, Non GMO Project Verified, free of Corn Syrup (HFCS) and of the most common allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, milk, egg, wheat etc.) soy aside. In other words starting with removing gelatin, these marshies are raising the bar one real ingredient at a time.

Who enjoys routine meals week in and week out? A simple and basic healthy diet is one thing, but we all get to that place just like hitting a plateau when working out, our tastebuds get bored. Our body needs and craves a diversified diet, which is why we wanted to share this unique dish with you. We love to change it up in the kitchen and come up with new recipes to add to the mix. Coucous can be a fun alternative to rice or pasta. It has less calories and a bit more protein than rice.

1 bunch of Parsley 2 tablespoon Butter

2 tablespoon Tomato Paste

1 tablespoon Verjus Rouge

1 teaspoon Summer Couscous Spice Blend

• In a medium pan, add 2 teaspoons of olive oil until hot. Add the squash and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and stir occasionally for 2-4 minutes or until softened.

• To make the sauce, add the tomato paste to the pan with eh squash. Stir frequently for 1-2 minutes or until dark red. Add the Verjus and ¼ cup water. Stir frequently 30 seconds to 1 minute.

How To Host a Healthy Party

How To Host a Healthy Party

The Fit Snack team loves to party! Here are five steps to throwing a get together that is as healthy as it is fun:

Step 1: Shots, shots, shots! (On second thought…maybe just one shot)

Cocktails have a reputation for being sneaky sources of calories, and rightfully so. The average margarita, for example, has nearly 200 calories. And who only has one margarita? Luckily, its easy to make lower-cal, delicious cocktails at home with an easy recipe like this from What’s Gaby Cooking :



  • 5 ounces tequila
  • 5 ounces freshly squeezed citrus juice, orange, blood orange, tangerine, satsuma, grapefruit
  • 3 ounces lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar
  • splash of sparkling water


  1. Run a wedge of lime across the top of 2 cocktail glasses. Once damp, coat the rim in salt.
  2. Add all the ingredients except the sparkling water into a cocktail shaker with a few cubes of ice. Shake for 30 seconds until chilled and then strain the margaritas into serving glasses with new ice. Top with a splash of sparkling water in each glass and serve immediately.

2.) Let’s Get Snackin’

After a drink (or two) at a party, the hunger starts to kick in. But what to eat while waiting for the burgers to grill? Ditch the potato chips and say hello to some tasty and healthy sides.


  • Chips and Dip: Everyone loves a snack that’s salty and crunchy. Unfortunately, potato chips are loaded with sodium and lack nutritional value you’d think they have from being potatoes. Luckily, kale chips pack all the salty crunchiness people love with a boost of vitamins and are gluten and soy-free! Try this foolproof kale chips recipe and you’ll never go back to potatoes! bestkalechips-5324

3.) Build a Burger



“Swap plain, protein-rich Greek yogurt or smashed avocado (a superfood in our book!) in place of mayo for a healthier spread.

Use whole-wheat breadcrumbs instead of white, or try ground nuts (such as hazelnut or almond) for a healthier filler that’s also gluten-free.

Add fresh herbs to your burger for a healthy, low-calorie flavor-booster.

Sneak more veggie servings into your day by tossing chopped spinach or other leafy greens into the burger mixture, or add as a topping.”

  • Mustard and ketchup are condiment standbys for a reason; they’re delicious. Even more delicious, however is Homemade Curry Ketchup and Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip .
  • Get creative with toppings! In addition to tomatoes, offer healthy and flavorful options like avocado, jalapeños, spinach, red pepper, portobello mushrooms…whatever sounds good!
  • Use multi-grain buns instead of potato or white bread for an added boost of nutrition!

4.) Nobody Screams for Ice Cream!

Some of us abide by the saying “Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.” Thankfully, these Vitamin-C packed ice pops are refreshing enough to eat at any point in the party! Your guests will love them so much, no one will go running out when the ice cream truck rolls by: Minted Watermelon & Lemon Ice Pops 


5.) Have FUN!

Now that you have healthy options for each course sorted, sit back with your skinny Margarita and enjoy the party!
