Choose to snack healthy this season!
With the holiday season in full swing I don't know about you, but it seems like I'm always on the go. Whether it's running around shopping, running the kids, or preparing for guests it's always something. That means I don't always have my usual sit down meals or eat as healthy as I would like. To help combat that I try to always have healthy snacking alternatives in place that I can just grab on my way out the door. Plus if they are in smaller bags it's even better because it's a one portion size. I'm a big fan of snack sized portions too because I'm one that can forget that I'm eating from a big bag and just keep going. With things like Carrington Farms Flax Paks, Viki’s Granola, and Gaea Olive Snack Packs I am set for those snacking emergencies because they all come in the perfect sizes. Plus they are all good for me, and my family to enjoy as snacks!
