In my opinion, there are few things in life that are more satisfying than a healthy snack.
I know what you’re thinking. But Sam! What about travel, Disneyland, and the feeling of falling in love?
I agree - all of those things are amazing - but every experience we have in life is made better or worse by our physical health. How we feel physically impacts our energy levels, how we show up, and the way we interface with our world.
We’ve all seen the classic SNICKERS® bar commercial: “You’re not you when you’re hungry.”
But where SNICKERS® misses the mark, is that you’re also not the best you when you’re lacking key nutrients. When our diet is nutrient-deficient, our minds and bodies undergo serious challenges. We experience fatigue, brain fog, decreased mood, muscle weakness, digestive issues and more.
Something as simple as a quick, easy-to-grab snack can decide whether you fall into a slump or keep your momentum high. But finding the healthy ones - that's where the discernment comes into play.
I recently encountered a new snack that I am obsessed with - Core Bar - a flavorful, nutrient-dense powerhouse mix of natural ingredients packed into bar form.
Disclaimer #1: Core Bar is a Vizer Partner.
Disclaimer #2: My obsession is real.
I have two rules about ingredients in the foods I consume:
1. I must know what all of the ingredients are
2. There shouldn’t be so many ingredients listed that I start skimming the label
Filled with immune-boosting superfoods, Core Bar hits both marks. My favorite flavors - Coconut Chocolate and Blueberry Banana - boast 0 added sugar, all plant-based ingredients, and are loaded with fiber.
I'm also keen on the Dark Chocolate Cherry. After all, who doesn't love a dark chocolate pick-me-up in a better-for-you snack? I keep these loaded in my home fridge and the office fridge for a quick breakfast, a snack on the go, or something to throw in my gym bag on my way to yoga.
Stop in to the store and try one for yourself. I’d love to hear what you think!
