Hey there friends! We are here in Vegas celebrating the holidays with Chris’ family before jet-setting to Phoenix to see mine. The girls are having a blast with grandma and grandpa while Chris and I are also getting some us time. Everyone is a winner The only downfall I am having is staying on track during this vacation. My mother-in-law is a big baker and the house is full of treats. One of my biggest weaknesses is that I am a mega snacker so having all these treats around with so much spare time is dangerous. So I think this is the perfect time to share some of my ideas for smarter snacking. I recently had the chance to partner with Sara Lee® to share a healthy transformation and my snack habits have been just that
Snacking can be the downfall for anyone trying to watch what they’re eating. Many of us find ourselves snacking for no apparent reason … we aren’t really hungry and really we may just be bored. While I am 100% about eating when you ARE hungry, what I find myself fighting is the mindless snacking. So instead I have been focusing on choosing healthy, nutrient dense options so that when I reach for a snack it is satisfying as well as healthy.
Some of my favorite snacks include my shakes, fruit, and cheese sticks. I always keep water on hand to help between meals and to stay well hydrated. Another quick, simple, and delicious snack? A simple PB sandwich. The Sara Lee® 45 calorie bread is a pretty good option for these!
Some of the reasons I love this bread:
- Sara Lee® Delightful Breads provide delicious taste and delightful texture with 45 calories per full-size slice. New flavor Oatmeal joins the current line which includes 100% Whole Wheat (made with real honey), Healthy Multi-Grain and Wheat.
- The Delightful breads are all heart-healthy and provide an excellent source of fiber in each serving (2 slices), with no artificial colors or flavors, and no high fructose corn syrup.
One of my favorite ways to use this bread? Toasted with smashed avocado and a dippy egg. Seriously SO good! It has healthy fats, protein, and carbs. A pretty darn good snack in my humble opinion
Right now Sara Lee® is holding a #45DelightfulPeople contest looking for 45 healthy transformation stories! If you enter, you can win free bread for a year, workout gear, an iPod shuffle and more! Just for entering you get a free t-shirt so make sure to head on over HERE to tell your story! Your transformation can be anything – losing weight, getting more sleep, no-scale victories, and more. The sky is the limit
I am off to spend more time with family! Have a great night
