Snacks in hand

Monday, July 3, 2017

Blogging has it benefits.  I am often sent samples of new kinds of food to try, many of which are supposed to be good for you (as opposed to the cookies and ice cream I usually crave).  Here is what I have been snacking on over the last few weeks.  There is something for everyone!

Kind Snacks sent me a variety pack of several of their bars. Every flavour has been good so far. Most of the bars are a heathy assembly of nuts and seeds (some even have chocolate). I even had one in my goody bag after the Great Run Newham London 10K yesterday.  My favorite is peanut butter and dark chocolate.  They have been really handy to help wean me off my daily cookie at tea break.

So many to choose from

Ama-Vida has brought acai berries and Pitaya (dragon fruit) to your freezer.  These smoothie pouches can be keep in freezer for whenever you need a treat.  Simply defrost under hot water or overnight in the fridge as needed (just don't keep in the fridge longer than one day because it turns to liquid).  The flavours are not naturally sweet, so add fresh or frozen fruit, granola, nuts or seeds to pimp your bowl to your taste. It is a great product to keep at work for breakfast el desko or as an afternoon snack on a hot day.

Oomi noodles are a new high protein low carb noodle that is made from fish.  You can add the noodles to stir fry for a hot option or add them cold to your salad.  Unfortunately, my sample was at the post office overnight so I didn't have a chance to try them yet.  When I do, I will update this post.  If you have tried Oomi noodles, let me know what you thought in the comments below.
