An ancient concept originating in India, Chakras are thought to be the “wheels” that move energy throughout your body that affects you physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Healthy habits like meditation and yoga are said to maintain these energetic centers, but sometimes the stressors of life can gum up the system. Here are a few snacks to reach for that can help align those chakras so you can skip the yoga class!


Crown Chakra

Located at the top of your head, the crown chakra represents the spiritual connection to yourself. When it’s blocked, you may feel indecisive or depressed, and it can even manifest physically in the form of migraines and brain fog. Practices like meditating and positive affirmations are good for keeping your crown chakra open, but don’t underestimate the power of self-care! Treat yourself to something that brings you joy, like Jelly Beans! Each individual jelly bean is bursting with different fruit flavors that will help bring back the awareness you may be lacking. And go for the purple ones, as it is said that this color is closely associated with the crown chakra.

Third Eye Chakra

Located at the center of your head, right between your eyebrows, the third eye chakra is related to your intuition and spiritual perception. There is a reason those who claim to be psychic put an emphasis on their “third eye”! When blocked, you can experience difficulties with concentration and uncertainty. To remedy this, reach for some chocolate covered almonds. Along with the amazing taste of our roasted almonds coated with creamy milk chocolate, cacao is said to be good for detoxifying your pineal gland, which is linked to your third eye chakra.

Throat Chakra

Located at the throat/neck, as well as upper shoulders, the throat chakra plays a role in communication and self-expression. If you’re having a hard time expressing yourself, your throat chakra may be blocked. Speak your truth by incorporating the color blue into your life and diet! Quick snacks like granola bars are an easy way to fit a variety of fruits and nuts into your day when you’re on-the-go, including throat-chakra opening blueberries!


Heart Chakra

Located at the center of your chest, the heart chakra rules love and emotional awareness. Feeling some extra weight on your shoulders and a bit lonely lately? Maybe your heart chakra is unbalanced. Green is the color associated with the heart chakra, and green tea is a great option, not only for this chakra but because it is chock full of heart-happy antioxidants. Satisfy that sweet tooth as well with something unique like Green Tea Kit Kats.


Solar Plexus Chakra

Located at the navel, but below the ribs, the solar plexus chakra channels our confidence and sense of self. When blocked, you can experience poor self-esteem, and even digestive issues. Reach for a trail mix! Packed full of dried fruits and nuts like almonds, cashews, dried bananas and pineapple, it contains more fiber and antioxidants than fresh fruit, which can help fight heart disease and digestive woes. Our trail mix contains a variety of yellow fruits, which is said to aid the solar plexus chakra.

Sacral Chakra

Located in our abdomen, this chakra is our center for pleasure, creativity, and movement. Experiencing creative blocks, low self-worth, and physical issues such as lower back pain? Align your sacral chakra with some dried mangos! They are full of vitamin C, which helps promote healthy skin and a strong immune system by acting as an antioxidant. Vitamin C also has a positive link to your creative wellbeing and clearing brain fog. 

Root Chakra

Located at the base of the spine, the root chakra is responsible for our sense of stability and represents our foundation. When your root chakra is out of alignment, it can manifest in physical issues like fatigue and constipation. Emotionally, it can lead to anxiety and a general feeling of ungroundedness. Incorporating root vegetables into your diet can alleviate root chakra issues. Potato chips are a great option if you’re looking for a snack on-the-go. They’re delicious, familiar, and the sensory experience of crispy chips make for a grounding snack!

Incorporating healthy habits into your routine, like mindfulness, meditation, and movement is the best way to keep you feeling your best, but sometimes you just need to reach for a snack.
