A paleo lifestyle focuses on whole, unprocessed foods inspired by what our ancestors used to eat. That means filling your plate with grass-fed meat, wild-caught fish, healthy oils, plenty of veggies, and fresh fruit (in moderation). Because this diet suggests avoiding corn and corn syrup, gluten, and dairy, that means many packaged snacks are off limits. Thankfully, the snack category is a lot more wholesome these days, which means you can satisfy your cravings without doing damage to your diet.

The History of Lillabee Snacks
Lillabee Snacks was founded by Boulder-based husband and wife duo Jared and Indea Lovenduski. When the couple jointly switched to the paleo diet, they began experimenting with healthier snack ideas—and Lillabee was born. The name combines a flower—Indea’s Italian grandfather was a florist and lilla is Italian for lilac—and the essential honeybee. In the early days, the brand set up shop at local farmers markets before placing their cookies with national retailers, including ThriveMarket.com.
