What is on your Fall checklist?
After spending this last weekend at Healthy Living Summit in my home city, Minneapolis, I can happily say that I tried some new foods stuffs and am ready to share them with you! I can’t believe how many great products there are out there that I have never tried before…here are just a few of my favorites!
I ate these for a mini-breakfast. They are so good! If you like almonds, I recommend you give these a try!
We got about 6 of these in our Healthy Living Summit swag bag and they are all gone. That is how good they are. They have 4 grams of fiber and 13 grams of protein. Only ringing in at 180 calories, these are totally awesome. I tried and loved the Dark Chocolate Crunch and the Dark Chocolate Coconut Balance Bars!
Nom. Nom. NOM! I didn’t think I liked almond butter but I guess I do. This is a perfect addition to the mid-day apple you are going to have. I loved the flavor and it wasn’t over powering!
I am pretty sure B raised his eyebrows at me with this one, but meh, I don’t care I dig it. It’s a good apple flavor, not a fake one. Plus it has 3 grams of fiber with only 40 calories. That is something I can get behind!
Honestly, I was skeptical about this one. I LOVE my chocolate chip cookies the good ol’ fashion way. Made with lots of fat and sugar! But I must admit this cookie wasn’t bad and satisfied my post-lunch craving for sugar. Plus it has 12 grams of Protein (awesome for keeping your full), 3 grmas of fiber, and only 150 calories. Sounds good to me!
Not a huge fan of spice, I was also wondering about this one. It’s perfect blend of spice and sweet is awesome. It’s also not too chewy. I am a huge fan of this product and highly recommend you try it. Heck go big and try the sampler pack for game day! Just don’t blame me when everyone wants to come to your house for the game!
The last two came in the Kona Kase, which is a healthy food subscription sample pack you can have delivered to your home each month.
