Healthy Snacks Inspired by Japan

Healthy Snacks Inspired by Japan

Spring is coming, which means the anticipation of blooming are met with the excitement of sunny days and longer daylight hours. It’s also the time of year that many people work hard toward achieving the summer body they desire. While many people incorporate workout regimes into their daily activity, others make it a goal to make moderate changes in their diet such as eating healthy snacks or consuming more high protein foods.

One way to eat healthier is to adopt healthy habits of healthy eaters. Japanese diets, for example, incorporate a lot of soy into their daily meals. This is one reason why Japan enjoys having the number one lowest obesity rate in the developed world. Due to their healthy diets Japanese are not only living longer than Americans, but are more likely to live longer, healthier and disability free lives.

Making small changes in your diet such as incorporating high protein snack bars is one way to help transform your body for summer while adopting healthy eating habits. In fact, according to Fytte magazine, a diet, beauty and health monthly for Japanese women, eating healthy snacks in between meals was one of the top 10 diets picked by Japanese women. By eating healthy snacks in between meals, such as a soy protein bar, gave them feelings of fullness while preventing stress and overeating.

There are many health benefits to soy protein. Protein-packed soy is high in isoflavones, estrogen-like substances linked to the prevention of cancer and osteoporosis and is also good for your heart.

What better way to prep for summer and create positive eating habits by incorporating the joys of spring with the benefits of a Japanese diet by enjoying a Toosum  Cherries and Plum Snack Bar.

Inspired by the soy protein of Japan, known to give you a feeling of satiation and fullness, Toosum’s Cherries and Plum snack bar adds the flavor of Spring with cherry blossoms and plums to create a tasty treat packed with GLOBAL GOODNESS.

Cherries are an excellent source of potassium, which helps to lower blood pressure by getting rid of the excess sodium in our body. Plums are a good source of fiber which helps normalize blood glucose levels by slowing the absorption of sugars.

And each Toosum healthy snack bar is gluten free and only 120 calories per serving, which makes a healthy snack to help you stay on track.

Even though every Toosum snack bar is inspired from various parts around the world, all Toosum snack bars are proudly made in the USA.

Take the Toosum challenge today by adding a Toosum Cherries and Plum snack bar to your your day to help you fight hunger and develop healthy eating habits.


We know you’re careful about what you eat at meal times—lots of veggies, healthy protein, complex carbs. But snack time can be tricky because many “healthy” snack bars out there are loaded with sugar and calories or packed with preservatives and other ingredients concocted in a lab, not a kitchen.
