The one snack I always have in my purse . . .

Hey friends!  I can’t believe how cold it is already getting and it is only November!  It feel like it should be January with these frigid temps and inches of snow on the ground.  With the cold that also means sickness, ugh!  My family and I have been struggling with colds, coughs and sore throats – I am just not ready for this yet. I’ve been trapped in my fleece jacket, fuzzy sock and robe for last couple of days.  Yesterday, I finally put on a bra to go the doctor, ha!   Hopefully with more rest and smoothies we will all get better! 

On a second note, today is Tuesday and time share a simple snack idea.  Snacks are great and totally help control my hanger moments.  Smart snacks include a good balance of protein and fiber to help you feel satisfied.  I like to find at least 7 grams of protein and at least 3 grams of fiber for a smart snack.  The one snack I always have in my purse is Enlightened Bada Bean Bada Boom Roasted Broad Fava Bean Snacks. 

I like to buy the combo pack with three flavors (sea salt, mesquite bbq, sweet siracha) that come as individual bags at Costco (Amazon sells the variety box, too).   I have also bought a larger bag in one flavor at many other stores.  A single-serving bag contains: 100 calories; 3g fat; 0g saturated fat; 130mg sodium; 15g carbohydrates; 5g fiber; 7g protein.  This snack totally suffices my craving for chips.  They are packed with flavor and provide a great crunch.  And for the record, two out of three of my children approve (lol).

I have paired half an apple with one serving of the Bada Beans for very filling, yet, tasty snack! I do enjoy a good pink apple variety – can never go wrong.  

If you haven’t tried the Bada Beans, I suggest seeking them out!  I have sampled them in many of my classes and my clients go crazy for them.  I hope you enjoy this post and stay warm! Hugs! DD.
