    When times were different from what they are now, swinging by four different grocery stores to find awesome snacks you can binge on wasn’t unpopular. Or for that matter lurking around in the supermarket aisles for questionably longer hours reading the back of a snack pack to check how healthy it is. Especially for those of us who love munching in between meals and want to keep healthy while doing so. Luckily we have the option of shopping online, and with Shop On LBB, you are looking at nothing less than a gourmet and healthy snacks variety that won’t break your bank.

    We spoke to popular Chef Shaun Kenworthy, who dons many hats, as a restaurateur, food & restaurant consultant as well as a columnist, to find out what healthy snacks he loves to binge on from LBB’s gourmet snacks collection. 

    Read on to know what Chef Shaun has been ordering online, from sugar-free biscotti, keto fudge cookies to vacuum-dried chips, here are snacking options you may not have considered before now.

    Nutty Yogi is a Bangalore-based online store that offers a great range of healthy snacks like Cacao Nibs Trail Mix, Dark Chocolate & Walnut Granola, Smoked Caramel Makhna, Roasted Soy Nuts and Jeera Khakhra Crisps.

    Chef Speak: “I used to love chomping away, just generally on Khakhra but now I try to avoid wheat as much as possible. Millet is a great option for those wanting to stay away from those excess carbs and these guys are great as they are or dipped into your favourite dip.”

    I Say Organic, Roasted Salted Peanuts

    I Say Organic works directly with farmers in producing, sourcing, and selling all things organic. Apart from fresh produce and baked goodies, their range of desi snacks is healthy and awesome. Organic Aloo Bhujia anyone?

    Chef Speak: “Peanuts are probably my all time favourite nut and I love these guys, all roasty toasty with their skins still on for added roughage. Has to be a great added healthy bonus.”

    Nutripanda, Nutri Namkeen

    Nutripanda has some interesting snacking options that are as healthy as they are binge-worthy. Like the protein-packed Gur Chana or the masala-packed Beaten Chana (a.k.a chana jor garam). 

    Chef Speak: “Namkeen is always a good idea in any shape, size, taste, flavour, khatta or meetha. That said, I was always horrified at the amount of oil used in the making. These are baked, full of flavour and can be munched on without too much guilt.”

    To Be Honest, Herbed Taro Chips

    Honesty in every bite. To Be Honest will allow you to cheat on your diet without any harm. Meaning you can have a bag full of chips (cheat treat) but these are made of real vegetables and vacuum-dried (healthy). Win-win.

    Chef Speak: “Vegetable chips are just so much more interesting than your regular potato chips. I love the sweet potato, okra and taro the most and again with 50% less fat than a regular chip. Winner!”

    The Snack Company, Baked Onion Crackers

    Cookies, granola and crackers - The Snack Company’s packets are what you should be reaching for when the munchies strike. They even have Filter Coffee Cookies!

    Chef Speak: “Their Baked Onion Crackers are delicious, and a recent staple on my nibbles cupboard. Great as a cocktail nibble with a glass of wine or just for nibbles sake.”

    BerriNutty, Pitted Prunes

    Chef Speak: “I love prunes and it’s great to see that someone in India has started to pack and sell Prunes. I remember paying a fortune for imported packaged ones years ago. So these are a welcome sight.”

    Hey Grain, Sugar Free Almond Biscotti

    If cookies are your go-to snack, then Hey Grain is what you need in your snack cupboard. These cookies are made with whole-grain cereals, ragi flour, a combination of butter and canola oil and demerara sugar. 

    Chef Speak: “Three sweet things to finish with. To start, I do like a biscotti with an after dinner espresso. These are delicious and a little more conscious, keeping the whole grain and sugar free lifestyle in mind.”

    Whether you are on a keto diet or not, Ketofy’s cookies are super yummy and healthy. Grainy with a fudgy centre, the best part about these cookies is the tiny bite-sized portions. Wellversed also retails a bunch of other Ketofy's snacks such as nachos and masala chips.

    Chef Speak: “These are brilliant, tiny teeny weeny cookies, wheat-free and filled with protein, nuts, seeds and good quality cocoa. Delicious!”
