Back to School with KIND Bars and Giveaway

by Pennie on August 25, 2014

KindLogo

There’s healthy. There’s tasty. Then there’s healthy and tasty. At KIND, we believe you deserve both—we call it our brAND philosophy. That’s why you’ll find all of our snacks are pretty much the nirvana of healthful tastiness. What began with just 8 bar varieties in 2004 has grown to over 22 bars and 6 Healthy Grains snackable clusters, and a multitude of new recipes being perfected and refined to our standards in the KIND kitchen.

Breakfast Checklist: If your kids are in too much of a rush for breakfast, their school performance could suffer. This study found that kids who eat breakfast miss less school, average higher math scores, and 20% are even more likely to graduate! Easy, quick and nutritionally dense options are best to ensure they can at least grab breakfast as they run out the door in the morning. Make sure you check off protein, fiber, and healthy fats for this meal for energy and brain power.

kindswirly

Pack a Snack: Packing healthy options is the best way to help your kids avoid all the unhealthy choices lurking around their school. Between vending machines, bake sales, candy fund raisers and the snacks in the lunch line, who knows what they’re eating throughout the day! If they keep some healthy snacks in their locker or school bag, they’re less likely to fall prey to all these temptations, and they’ll be getting the brain food they really need.

Lunch Punch: Did you know that in school lunch lines, pizza and french fries are considered vegetables? It might be the safest option to pack a school lunch to ensure your kids are getting the real vegetables they need, as well as fruits, proteins and whole grains. Make it interesting with some bold flavors to ensure they actually eat what you pack!

Parent’s Lunch Crunch: Don’t forget mom or dad! During back to school it can be all too easy for parents to forget about taking care of themselves when they’re taking care of their kids. When you’re in a time crunch, make sure you too have easily accessible, healthy foods to snack on and reach for when it’s lunch time. Maybe pack your own lunch at the same time you pack for your kids so you can ensure a healthy meal is ready when you are!

Visit KindSnacks.com, also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Nicole’s take:  We are huge fans of the KIND bars! They are packed with protein and flavor and keep us going all day long! My husband usually takes one for breakfast and he says he feels full until lunch.  I often will grab one as I head somewhere with the babies and always keep a few stashed in the diaper bag for when I need a pick me up! These are great for back to school – for breakfast as a snack or part of a healthy lunch!

S’mores Balance Bar and Giveaway

by Pennie on August 18, 2014

 balancebarlogo

When I was a Girl Scout every year we had a camping trip. Besides all of the wonderful things we did, some of the best times were sitting around a campfire at the end of the day and having S’mores.  You had to get the marshmallow just the right ooey, gooey consistency, as well as the perfect golden brown on the outside.  Slide it between 2 graham crackers along with a piece of chocolate bar and you were in camper heaven!

S’mores became so popular that August 10 (right in the middle of camping season) became National S’mores Day!  We hope you celebrated with a traditional S’more, but Balance Bar wants you to know you can have the same yummy experience, all year round in a more convenient manner (after all, whose has time to build a campfire every day?).

smoresbalancebar
Any day is the perfect time to enjoy a delicious and healthy chocolate, graham cracker and marshmallow inspired treat from Balance Bar!  Graham cracker crunch. Marshmallow fluffiness. Chocolatey richness. All wrapped up with the nutritional balance your body needs for lasting energy. Grab a S’mores Balance Bar, take a bite and take on what’s next.

Nutrition At A Glance:

200 Calories
14g Protein
3g Fiber
Balanced 40-30-30 Nutrition
Low Glycemic Index (38)
23 Vitamins & Minerals
Excellent Source of Antioxidants

Nicole’s take:  We are huge Balance bars fans, Jamie takes one every morning for breakfast so we were excited to try the S’mores variety! They are the perfect combo of chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker – delicious!

Nicole’s take:  Ruby Tuesday has always been one of our favorite chain restaurants because the food is so fresh they have a great salad bar and the value is excellent! The Buy one Get One 50% off coupon makes it even more affordable! My favorite item is the sliders with salad bar.  I like the beef sliders – you get 2 with fries and endless salad bar!

NoccioLogo

Launched in 2006, Nocciolata is Rigoni’s “newest” product born from another old family recipe. Like everything else from Rigoni, it is 100% organic goodness.
nocciolata-jar

SO GOOD. SO ORGANIC.

It’s actually quite simple. Quality ingredients produce superior taste. Only certified organic ingredients go into each jar of creamy, dreamy Nocciolata. That means no chemicals, no artificial flavors, no GMOs and absolutely zero palm oil. Nocciolata is still made following the Rigoni’s exclusive family recipe. It is a slow process that uses only carefully selected ingredients like dark chocolate from the Antillean Islands, Italian hazelnuts (16%), brown sugar, skim milk and Bourbon vanilla extract.

Enjoy Nocciolata any time of day. Try it in the morning on toast, or on a crusty bread for a delicious afternoon snack. Nocciolata is the perfect special ingredient for cakes, crepes, cookies, muffins, and many more recipes. It’s fantastic as a frosting or filling in all your baking inventions! No matter how you enjoy it, there are always new ways to love Nocciolata!

Nicole’s take:  I love hazelnuts and chocolate and Nocciolata is my new favorite combination of those ingredients! It is super silky with such a rich flavor.  I love it on toast or in a sandwich with peanut butter or even just off a spoon! 

For more information visit NocciolataUSA.com  and on FacebookTwitter and Pinterest.
