Which City Do You Think Makes the SMARTest Food Choices? #ad #giveaway

Jennifer here to share with you a video and some cool info about SMART food choices. We were compensated to write this post, however all opinions listed are our own.

What do you think makes a city smart?  The people in the city? The food of the city? What about the food choices of the people in the city? To me, that is what makes a city SMART.

Smartfood, with the support of SELF magazine, came together to create a list of the top 10 SMARTest cities in America, based on a number of criteria. San Francisco claimed the top spot as a city that makes SMART food choices.

What does SMART stand for?

The top 10 SMARTest Cities in America is part of Smartfood’s summer-long effort to celebrate what it means to live SMART. To start, the brand broadened and redefined “SMART” by combining five criteria to align with the brand’s goal of living and eating well. Each letter stands for a specific area of focus: Savvy, Motivated, Accomplished, Responsible and Thoughtful.

Based on these criteria, Smartfood’s Top 10 SMARTest Cities are:

  1. San Francisco
  2. Seattle
  3. Washington, D.C.
  4. Austin, Texas
  5. Minneapolis
  6. Portland, Ore.
  7. Denver
  8. Boston
  9. Honolulu
  10. San Jose, Calif.

Too bad I don’t live in any of these areas, but with the help of Chef Jody Denton, I too can make SMART food choices.

Through July 7, Smartfood also is conducting its SMART Search 2013 contest to reward someone who has “smart in the bag” — someone savvy and living a balanced lifestyle, motivated to get regular physical activity, accomplished by achieving educational, career and life goals, responsible in her or his care for the planet and thoughtful when it comes to philanthropic efforts.

Visit www.facebook.com/smartfood to nominate someone they know or themselves, with the contest winner to be featured in the September issue of SELF magazine and receive $10,000. In addition, every person who submits a nomination will receive a “Buy One, Get One” coupon for Smartfood Selects products, while supplies last.

What is your smartest snack choice that you make?


  1. Julie Cutshaw says

    I would say that my smartest snack food choice would be sunflower kernels. They are great for lowering your cholesterol & great protein source & I love them :) great review & new product that I had not heard of until today

  2. Tammy S says

    I love popcorn for a healthy snack. I love all the Smart Food chips & popcorn. I do live in one of the above cities, so you know we love our smart Food. :)

  3. Susan P. says

    The smartest snack choice for me is Greek yogurt or bananas. For something salty, I like a good chip like Smartfood Select or The Better Chip.

  4. David says

    My go-to smart snack is popcorn. But considering that I only like popcorn because it is salty and buttery, it may not be as smart of a choice as I tell myself.

  5. Brandy W. says

    Strawberries & Asparagus are my go to healthy snacks!! (Not together at the same time though, of course LOL)
