Summer Snacking with Newtons
I know that many of you can relate to being constantly on the go. Although I work full time blogging from home, I’m constantly in and out for both work and family errands. Grocery stores (yes plural), gas stations, dry cleaners, gas stations (have you seen the price of gas gah), school, after school activities, and the list goes on and on. Sometimes I think I live in my car as much as I do my house. My car also happens to be yellow, equating it to a taxi. Coincidence? Mmmh. Active is definitely a word that comes to mind when I think about the ins and outs of my days. Trying to balance my crazy schedule and eating things that don’t come from a drive thru is challenging.
To keep me from resisting the urge to whip around and grab something from a drive thru, which wouldn’t do my waistline any favors, I like to pack little snack packs to take with me. Yes, I am that person who takes food with them. I know I can’t be the only one. Please tell me I’m not the only one. I should own stock in zip top plastic bags. Truth. I fill them with dried fruits, cookies, things that I can easily nibble on to keep me fueled until I can make it back home and make something good AND good for me.
I was recently asked to sample a new product from Newtons. They sent me a package of Fruit Thins Banana Drizzled with Dark Fudge. Chocolate. Bananas. In crispy cookie form. Sign me up! I was happy to learn that these unique cookies are made with whole grains, real fruit, and dark fudge. With 8 grams of whole grains per 31 gram serving, this is one unique cookie that I could feel good about snacking on.
