The following post is sponsored by FitFluential, LLC on behalf of Skinnygirl. All opinions are my own, as they always are.
I could eat all day long. Seriously...all day long. Between the running, the breastfeeding and everything in between—I'm the human equivalent of a garbage disposal. I want all the food and I want it now. But unlike a garbage disposal, I prefer to consume the good stuff. Food that will support me throughout my day.
Like apples and peanut butter.
Or rice cakes topped with raspberries.
But I don't always have time to stop and make these yummies. I'm on-the-go all morning at the gym job and chasing two kiddos when I'm not. So, convenience is a must for those moments when I need something, like...pronto.
Sometimes, convenience isn't really that healthy.
I'm looking at you, chocolate.
It's so easy to grab a handful of chocolate chips, amiright?
Enter the Skinnygirl Snack Swap. When FitFluential presented the opportunity to explore this campaign from Skinnygirl, I jumped at the chance. I'm all about getting new snack ideas, and the Snack Swap website makes it easy.
First, it asks you what your favorite snack is:
Now, as part of this campaign, Skinnygirl so graciously sent me a little care package of Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars complete with a tee and headband.
If you're wondering, they're also gluten-free, Kosher and void of any artificial sweeteners or flavors.
The Dark Chocolate Pretzel bar is currently packed in my gym bag and may or may not have already been eaten by the time you read this. (If you follow me on Instagram, you might already know.)
One thing's for sure, I still have a ton of Dark Fudgy Avocado Brownies in my 'fridge. I mean, come on with this deliciousness:
Skinnygirl Snack Swap website. It's one of many nutritionist-approved healthy snack recipes. (Seriously, I want to make them all.)
Can we just talk about putting an avocado in brownie batter for a second? I've always wanted to try this, but...um, avocados are for guacamole. Except apparently they're also for brownies because, yes. Everything about these brownies is perfect. I'm not a chocolate cake person, I love fudge. These brownies merge the two. And they're healthy. #winning
But, again—Not always easy to transport brownies in a gym bag, or eat them quickly without getting brownie fingers. (You know what I'm talking about.) So, the bars. They're good, And perfect for on-the-go, need-something-quick snacking.
Go to the website and find your snack swaps. Order some bars if you want to. (Use code SNACKSWAP15 at checkout to save $1.) You can also find them in retailers like Walgreens and Target (among others). Or (drum roll), you can win some.
