We’ve been doing some digging to find Canadian snacks that feel like a treat while still supporting your health and wellness. These amazing options are all made by Canadian founders and many of them are made locally as well. We want to introduce these to you so if you see them in a grocery store, you know that you’re supporting local businesses and brands that care about health and inclusivity. We all deserve a treat - why not make it one that will boost your energy and not your blood sugar?
Remix Snacks are delicious and sustainable - good for you and for the planet
Remix Snacks are snacks that upcycled fruit, vegetable, and bean snacks created by Asian-female dietitians (and who have been featured on Dragon’s Den!) What’s upcycled fruit, you ask? Remix uses fruits and veggies that have been deemed imperfect by the aesthetic standards of the distribution food chain. Remix saw a problem - huge amounts of food waste - and found a solution. Remix dehydrates the fruit and veggies, which still have the same nutritional content - saving food from the landfill and creating tasty snacks that are high in protein, fibre, and all around good.
These snacks, ranging from bean puffs to fruit-stuffed chocolate bark, can be purchased online or found at many national grocery chains. Click here to subscribe for $5 off your Remix Snacks purchase!

All-natural Chiwis skip the added sugar often found in dried fruit chips
British Columbia-based Chiwis are a portable and lightweight snack, free from nuts, gluten, dairy, and completely natural. All five chip flavours use the entire fruit in their making - yes, that includes the nutrient-rich skin, and sometimes even the core of the fruit!
Chiwis take the whole fruit and dehydrate it, reducing waste and making the fruit into a bite-sized snack that can be packed away for hikes or long days away from home.
You can order Chiwis online or at many Canadian retailers.

A note from our long term disability lawyers
Taking a medical leave from work is not an easy decision to make. Concerns about providing for yourself and your family and keeping your job may cause you to want to push through your pain, but this won’t make your problems go away. Stopping work is often the smartest decision for your long term health and well-being, and your disability benefits are there to provide you with financial support until you can return to work.
If you have made the tough decision to stop working and apply for your short term disability or long term disability benefits, you may feel overwhelmed by the process and have questions that your employer and your insurance company are not able or willing to answer. Share is There to see you through and answer your questions.
Our disability law firm knows what you have been going through
We understand that things have not been easy for you over the last little while. Your health has been suffering, you are unable to work, and now your insurance company, who was supposed to be there in your time of need, has decided they will not pay your disability benefits or respect your disability claim. These benefits exist to provide you with the financial support you need so that you can focus on your health and rebuilding your life. It is unfortunate that your insurance company has not lived up to its promise. If your disability claim has been denied, we will fight to get you the benefits you are entitled to. Our disability lawyers have helped thousands of Canadians get their long term disability benefits over the past 35 years, and we can help you too.
Our experienced disability lawyers can fight back on your behalf
Share Lawyers believes that every client who is dealing with a disability claim deserves superior personal service. To achieve that goal, we have developed our team of experienced, compassionate, and caring long term disability lawyers, law clerks, and administrative staff to meet all of your needs. Our team of experienced long term disability, life insurance, employment, and critical illness insurance lawyers have made successful claims against many insurance companies, third-party administrators and employers.
If you are unable to work, your disability benefits should be there to provide you with the financial support you need. While your insurance company may be focused on finding ways to avoid paying your claim, our focus is on what is in your best interest. When Share Lawyers gets involved, you have an entire team of lawyers that are there to support you and to fight for what is yours.
Our disability claim lawyers fight for your disability insurance claim by relying on our many years of experience to apply the best strategic planning and approach in each case, using the latest technology available. Experience matters, and with Share Lawyers, you are in the best hands with 35 years of success on your side.
