Don’t you love the end of the year? The holiday season typically puts people in fantastic moods, there are parties and presents and best of all, Christmas music! The end of the year is a good time to tie up the loose ends from the year you are finishing. I am always trying to get my ducks in a row so I can start the new year with everything in place. I don’t really make resolutions anymore, I make goals. Last year I made a goal to lose weight and I did, with the help of counting macros. I am generally keeping the weight off and I feel really good about how I look for the first time in a long time. I try and plan out my food for the entire day ahead of time, or at least most of the day. When I have a plan I tend to stick to my goals.
Eating well can be a chore at times. There are so many things to eat and drink that it is hard to keep it straight! I love to snack and that is my eating downfall. I would snack all day and night if I could. I like to eat larger meals, don’t get me wrong, but snacking is my jam for sure. When you say eat, I think of ALL OF THE THINGS. I have a hard time reigning in my snacking abilities sometimes. I guess that’s why I was 40 pounds overweight, right??
Special K is launching new Chewy Snack Bars in January to help keep your snacks great-tasting and filled with wholesome ingredients. These bars are such an easy way to snack in a smart way in the new year when you are trying to build a new you!The flavors are:
Salted Caramel Chocolate
Salted Pretzel Chocolate
These bars have ingredients that you can see; rich chocolate chunks, crunchy salted pretzels, real fruit pieces and rolled oats. Don’t these bars look delicious? After sampling them all I truly can’t pick a favorite. They are all great when a certain kind of craving hits me. When I want chocolate, I turn to the salted caramel chocolate or the salted pretzel chocolate. When I want something fruity I turn to the berry medley and blueberry bliss. They each have a flavor that is unique, none of the bars have a similar flavor at all. I have had bars before where they have a general bland flavor with a few toppings. Ick. These are definitely not those kind of bars! Look at the bars, they actually look like the pictures on the packaging! This isn’t a bait-and-switch at all. What you see and expect, is what you get.
The bars are only 100 calories per bar and they will be available at retailers in January, at a suggest price of $2.69! There are 8 bars to a box, so you are getting a lot of snacks for a great price. I love to tuck these Special K Snack Bars in my purse for quick snacks when I feel my blood sugar drop. I also have a few stashed in my car.
If you want to learn more about the new snack bars you can check our Special K on twitter and facebook.
For an easy way to snack in a smart way, try the Special K Snack Bars, you will not be disappointed…unless you drop it on the ground or something and you can’t eat it.
