Healthy Appetizers with Ozery Bakery!

According to Elite Daily: Tequila aids in weight loss! This has shown up in many articles throughout the past year, and I seem to agree. I get less of a hangover if I drink a little too much, and when its just right… I don’t seem to gain the “beer belly” I would with other alcoholic beverages. Pair your Tequila with some healthier appetizers and snacks at parties to keep yourself on track this winter!

Ozery Bakery Multi Grain Just Mini’s are the perfect appetizer for dinner parties as they are delicious and completely allergy-friendly. Each one is soy free, dairy free, peanut and nut free (made in a nut-free facility), vegan and non-GMO! These mini pre-sliced whole grain flat sandwich buns are loaded with nine nutritious grains and crushed flax seeds for a hearty base. Besides that, each of the family-owned Ozery Bakery’s products are preservative-free and batch made to reflect the process of baking by hand.

This means they will go bad over time (even in the freezer), but remember, if your food can go bad… it means its real and it’s good for you! Eat it fresh, love what you put into your body, and please pair responsibly!
