Snack Right & Snack KIND + Giveaway!

Just like clockwork, 4 pm hits and I’m hungry.  Never fails.  I don’t like having a big lunch at work – I get way too sleepy and can’t focus.  So typically in the late afternoon I’m looking for a healthy snack to tide me over til dinner at 7 pm.

I’ve definitely attempted to skip my afternoon snack – especially if I’m busy with patients or in the mood to cut a few extra calories.  Well…let’s just say that generally doesn’t work out.  Ravaging doesn’t even describe my level of hunger by the time I get home.  No bueno.

KIND5 It’s important to include a healthy snack when you need it.  Though the key word there, is if you need it.  If it’s going to be at least 2 hours or so until my next meal, I’ll generally indulge in a high protein snack.  Or if I’ve had a unusually small breakfast or lunch, I might have a snack too.  Just depends.

But when I do snack, I try to pick something good for me.  Something that’s satisfying, healthy, high in protein and also delicious!  Some of my favorite afternoon snacks include:  Herb Roasted Chickpeas, Cinnamon Vanilla GranolaRoasted Beet Hummus or even Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!

KIND7 Another one of my go-to snacks are KIND bars.  And as they recommend – “Choose simple, wholesome, nutrient dense foods and snacks made with a balance of healthy fats, protein and fiber, such as KIND bars to improve diet quality.”  A very true statement and one I follow and recommend.

I love KIND bars!  First and foremost, because you can actually see what’s in them.  And like the KIND brand says – the best snacks are ones where you can see the ingredients AND pronounce them.  Yup, good advice!  KIND bars are not some overly processed, unidentifiable protein bar.  You can see all the nuts, dried fruit, grains and the occasional chocolate drizzle!  Plus they’re delicious.

KIND2 KIND has 4 great types of bars:  KIND Plus with Antioxidants, KIND StrongKIND Fruit and Nut (my personal favorite) and KIND Nuts and Spices.  Each bar however, is non-GMO, gluten free, a good source of fiber, dairy free and all natural.  Paired with a piece of fruit, it’s the perfect afternoon snack!
