WHERE TO START WHEN EATING HEALTHIER
First, look for foods that serve up the win-win of taste and health! My suggestion is Bob's Better Bars that are deliciously rich and satisfying, BECAUSE THEY OFFER UP TO 7 GRAMS OF PROTEIN AND ARE A GOOD SOURCE OF FIBER SO THEY HELP YOU FEEL FULLER LONGER! They're made with whole grain oats, peanut butter, and organic honey to offer a nutrition-rich snack. Bob's Better Bars come in five flavors and are inspired by founder Bob Moore’s family recipes. Stash them anywhere for an anytime, anywhere snack or meal replacement. This is the perfect bar for peanut butter lovers. They blend peanut butter with jelly, coconut, banana, apple spice or chocolate. Bob’s Better Bars are Gluten, Soy, Dairy and Egg Free. For more information, visit www.bobsredmill.com
A BETTER FOR YOU SNACK
A snack is really a mini-meal and should do something good for you! Also, we want it to be so quick & easy, that you can eat on the go. I have a suggestion you must try…It’s called Campbell’s Well Yes! Sipping Soups that are a new, easy, on-the-go vegetable-based snack packed with twenty percent (20%) or more of your daily vegetable servings – all for under 200 calories. No spoon required – just pop it in the microwave for 1-minute, let cool, sip and go – it’s that easy. There are five delicious flavors that appeal to all tastes. Tomato & Sweet Basil, my personal favorite warm or chilled, Harvest Carrot & Ginger, Sweet Corn & Roasted Poblano, Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato, Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato. Well Yes! is a delicious and easy way to add more vegetables to your daily diet. The smooth, creamy and rich flavors are a good source of fiber, meet vegetarian dietary needs, are non-GMO and contain no artificial flavors or colors. Available at grocers nationwide and online. Soup on the go? Well Yes! who knew. For more information, visit www.campbells.com/well-yes
