Wednesdays are for Wellness Snacks

I decided I needed a break from Sam and Diane and wanted to watch a movie.  Never worry, I’ll be back soon.  I thought I needed How To Be Single (It’s a real movie, not my personal handbook. 😘), but ended up grabbing Lord of the Rings (The Fellowship of the Ring if you’re into it.).   Apparently I needed some Orlando Bloom in my life.  You know, back when he still did movies and didn’t just half-date Katy Perry? Plus that Shire sure is scenic. #vacaygoals

New Zealand has a lot of sheep, right?  Clearly, that’s the big selling point for me.

Um, yeah.  That happened.

Sharing some of my current healthy foods again, because I know you’re curious.  This time it’s a snack edition. What can I say?  I’m generous when sharing food finds.

Iced Americanos.

My stomach is weirdly sensitive to super hot or super cold drinks.  Drinking these iced lets me get my coffee fix without screwing up my system.  Piping hot acidic water going down first thing in the morning is not a good time!   I’m not about to give anything up when it comes to my love, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be a little kinder to myself.

RX bars.

They’re like chewier Larabars and have flavors that are little more classy.  My fave is maple sea salt.  Although, I am obsessed with seasonal flavors so this Pumpkin Spice bar was delightful.  IMG_5491

Larabar Holiday Bars

Speaking of seasonal.  Look who has theirs out to buy!  I love these and ate them well into Spring last year.  There’s also a pumpkin pie one I have never tried!  A bar is my go-to afternoon snack so I really try to have one that’s minimally processed.  If you have never had a Larabar, do it.  They taste like dessert. img_5510.jpg

Mamma Chia.

I don’t think there’s any difference between organic chia seed types but I’m a sucker for great packaging. I’m using this for pumpkin chia pudding among other things like tossing some into oats or on top of a salad. “Seed Your Soul!”  Hello, it’s all about branding these days!IMG_5508

Pur Gum

I’m not usually a gum person but I had Pur gum around and have been chewing a piece after lunch.  I hate how hard it is to find gum or mints without chemicals, artificial dyes, and high fructose corn syrup.  The peppermint doesn’t last forever but it’s refreshing enough!  Sooner or later we’ll all catch on and have this sorta stuff readily available. img_5511.jpgThose are my personal weekly favorites as far as ingestibles go!

I’m honestly having fun with the TIU21 Challenge so far.  It’s been two days of tough workouts and eating on a plan but I feel like I’m on the path to good.

Any good healthy finds you care to share with me? Comment below please!

I love making a commitment to better myself.

Life isn't all sparkles but I'll throw some glitter in the air. Keep me in the sun. That's where I shine.
