I’ve been a granola bar fan for as long as I can remember. Chocolate Chip and S’mores Chewy bars were essentially the main food group in my diet when I brought my lunch to school. Actually longer than that… you can see a box of them tucked on my shelf in my college dorm room!
They’re still one of my favorite snacks, but my taste has evolved a bit. I’m a big fan of Kind and Clif bars. The KIND Plus Cranberry Almond bars and Wild Blueberry Almond CLIF Organic Trail Mix bars are definitely my two favorites right now. I love to eat them in between meals or on my way to a meeting where I need to be focused and feel great.
Garrett and I are obsessed with Nourish Snacks. Thank goodness they’re portion controlled because otherwise I would eat my entire weight in them every single day. Garrett’s been known to stash a few in his Barbour coat pockets in case of emergency (aka when he gets hangry). These are my go-to snacks before a yoga class. I hate feeling full doing yoga but I also have to eat beforehand otherwise I have a bad practice.
You really can’t go wrong with any of the flavors, but here are some of my recommendations: Mocha-Mazing, Monkey Love, Miss Popular, Mr. Popular, Ménage-a-mix, Almond to Cherries, and PB Jammin. Basically… all of them! Use “CollegePrep” for 10% off your order!
Popcorn for me is a “treat.” I freaking LOVE popcorn. Unfortunately, I have no self-control when it comes to popcorn. Can’t stop, won’t stop. I prefer popcorn popped on the stove, but tend to do microwave (I know, not healthy!!!!) packages. Teddy, oddly enough, loves popcorn too so he gets to nibble on a few pieces. It’s hilarious to hear him smack and crunch.
What’s your favorite mid-day snacks? Anything I should try this week?
