I don’t know about you but I am sure overwhelmed with the busy curveballs life throws at me this week – and I don’t even have a kid going back to school, yet!
Well, I have found some new snacks that keep me going. Remember not to forget snacks throughout the day because they help keep your hunger levels at a moderate. Have you ever had dinner or lunch when you were absolutely starving? Yeah, how much did you eat? Sometimes we can really overeat when we are super hungry – so keep some go-to snacks on hand at all times!
Brookside Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry
A great way to satisfy your chocolate craving – these are fantastic! A natural source of antioxidants from the dark chocolate, blueberries and acai. You can see the little dark chocolate balls in the picture – they are dark chocolate surrounding a sweetened fruit juice piece made from a blend of acai berry juice, blueberry juice and other natural fruit juices.
1/4 cup – 180 calories; 7 g fat; 4 g saturated fat (coming from chocolate ); 29 g carbohydrates; 1 g fiber; 25 g sugar; 1 g protein.
Just remember to keep these little delectable bites to the portion size!
Blue Diamond Natural Oven Roasted Almonds – Cinnamon Brown Sugar
There are many flavored varieties that I suggest you try out! Nuts are an excellent snack and the lid of this container is the proper serving size! They also have a measure of ounces on the outside of the container.
About 24 nuts – 160 calories; 14 g fat; 1 g saturated fat; 30 mg sodium; 7 g carbohydrates; 3 g fiber; 3 g sugar (woohoo!); 6 g protein.
These are fantastic and help satisfy your sweet tooth craving with not adding a lot of extra sugar! They are lightly sweetened using cane juice.
Fruit & Veggies!
Don’t forget to keep a bowl full of fruit on your counter or a filled veggie tray in your frig! Fruits and veggies are the best snacks to pack that provide a natural source of fiber to fill you up and loaded with nutrients to keep your body moving!
