FAQ

About the Snacks

What makes Happy Healthy Human different than other snacks on the market?
HHH snacks are designed for flavor and function. In designing these snacks, we carefully considered the macronutrient (carb, fat, protein), micronutrient (vitamin and minerals), and energetic (cooling, heating, heavy, light, sweet, salty, astringent, bitter, sour, pungent) qualities of each ingredient to formulate well-balanced snacks that taste amazing. Most food on the market ignore one (if not all) of these qualities.
 
Each of these snacks are high in protein (8-10 g per serving), use organic ingredients, are gluten free, vegan, and are convenient to eat on the go.
 
What do each of the snacks do and how do they achieve it?
Balance: How do you find balance? You find your footing. You find grounding. So Balance has some heavier/stronger flavors and ingredients so that you can find center once again. Raisins are sweet and heavy, peanuts are high in fat and have a deep quality. Turmeric reduces inflammation, but it needs black pepper to aid this action. Pepper adds a spark and a spice. Amchoor powder (a dried mango powder), adds a sourness, which adds to the heavier, balancing qualities of the snack. Learn more about our specific ingredients here.
Calm: Calm is cooling. So I use coconut oil and coconut flakes to be a lighter mix with the dried chickpeas. Fennel adds a cooling, airy element that soothes and calms your digestive system, and dried blueberries are small, sweet, and light, so you can let any anger go.  Learn more about our specific ingredients here.

Motivation: Motivation is designed to help you get off your butt and get into action. Pumpkin seeds are a light, lower-in-fat seed, and it’s combined with dried cranberry, which is more sour than sweet. There is only a small amount of olive oil to hold everything together. A dash of cayenne pepper gets you the pep you need to get moving!  Learn more about our specific ingredients here.
Relief: This is designed to ease frazzled nerves and support your entire endocrine (hormone) system. Maca is an adaptogen, meaning it helps your cortisol lower and you to find calm. Brazil nuts are high in selenium, supporting a healthy thyroid. Banana is high in potassium, which acts to counteract sodium and high blood pressure. Cinnamon adds to the lovely cozy flavor that just makes you feel safe and at ease.  Learn more about our specific ingredients here.

Which snack has the least sodium?

All of our snacks have between 7-8% of your daily sodium needs (~160-220mg per serving). We use non-iodized sea salt from Spain. The least salty snacks are Motivation and Relief.

 

Which snack has the least sugar?

The only sugars in our snacks come from our dried organic fruit, some of which are lightly sweetened with organic cane sugar. The snack with the least carbohydrates is Relief, with only 2 grams of sugar (1 gram added sugar) per serving. Balance, Calm, and Motivation look like they have more carbs, but this is due to the roasted chickpeas which add fiber and resistant starches.

 

Turmeric is good for everything - why specifically is good for Balance?

Turmeric is quite the miracle food! We include turmeric in Balance for it's anti-inflammatory, circulation stimulating, and warming properties. Together, these actions help to strengthen your connection to the earth and help you find more stability in your body and mind. 

 

Our organic turmeric comes from a small farm in Java, so it's the freshest, most potent turmeric you can find.
