Friday Favs – The Snack Edition

Happy Fri-YAY!!

I get asked alot about my favourite things. Favourite shoes, favourite places to eat, favourite workout clothes, etc. So I thought I would start today off with a “Friday Favs – The Snack Edition.”

First up…energy!

Energy, in the form of a drink? I don’t always support the notion of a drink being a source of energy, but here is an exception. I have never been a fan of Red Bull or other energy drinks. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good caffeine fix and I am just like you, I can hit a wall at 3pm and need a good kick-start or jolt to keep me moving along.

ZipFizz is a super low-calorie energy drink that comes in a few flavours, orange cream is my fav. I would prefer it be to non carbonated but whatevs..it does the trick! I picked this up at Costco. (sorry about the blurry pic, ugh) zipfizz.com

I’ve had four of their flavours and all of them have a good taste and great energy supply when you need it.

Next up are Party Tizers – Dippin Chips

Party-Tizers – Dippin Chips.

Gluten free, non GMO, no added flavours, preservatives or junk. These bad boys are awesome!! I love them with hummus, guac, salsa, goat cheese or just plain. These are great for a healthy homemade nacho night or a quick snack. Again, another purchase from Costco. I have 3 kids I need to buy everything in bulk people! My husband loves them with a little Brie and Red Pepper Jelly, baked in the oven for a few minutes.  Their shape makes each one a little bowl!

Did you see the package? Kale, carrot and spinach! My kids love eating these. Kale, carrot, spinach sneaking into their diet. Folks, that is a definite #ParentWIN!

On the go

For an on the go snack I like to have a Kind bar every once in a while. My hands down fav flavour is the coconut almond. As you can see, I couldn’t wait to eat this and all that was left was the wrapper. This purchase was from WalMart. I was starving and this saved me from making a bad decision like hitting a drive through or making a poor food choice  because I was hungry.  Having a snack with you like a Kind Bar can really help you through those ‘challenging’ times. These bars come in a variety of flavours.

All natural, gluten-free, low glycemic. Real ingredients that you can pronouce.

That is all for my “Friday Fav’s – The Snack Edition.

Transparency Disclaimer: I purchased all of these products. I was not asked to write this. I’m sharing my favourites because they actually are a few of my favourite things and I love to share healthy food and snack choices.  BUT…If any companies want to sponsor me…you can always connect with me 🙂 .

Well, it’s Friday and while many people are recommending someone great on Twitter to follow with the #ff fun, I prefer to do a #FridayFunny.  Enjoy…hope these bring a smile to your face.

Every good post begins with cat pictures

Sums it for me!

Let the good Lord give you patience and let Boot Camp help you with your strength

Raise your hand if you’ve been there

I beg to differ….I have some pretty fantastic stories involving salad
