Healthy Snacks on the Go with Kashi

At the beginning of the year, I think we are all a little more health conscience. We started around this time last year with a pretty strict clean eating diet. I can say we did pretty darn awesome for the first 5 months...then summer, vacations and our move really threw off our diets. The move alone was the worst. You really have no choice but to eat out when you are living in a hotel or a house with 1 pot to cook with. The stress of everything had me reaching for chocolate constantly and needless to say, really made a big change in my body. 

Since we are all settled into our new house, we decided we needed to really focus and get back to eating healthy. We started working out together daily and I started training for my third half marathon. It's really important to me that I pair all the hard work with healthy foods. What use is it to work so hard, if I'm just going to fill my body with junk? 

Another health aspect I've been thinking a lot about lately, is that of my kids. Packing school lunches is quite a challenge. Cooper wants packaged lunches like his friends and doesn't understand why I won't buy him brightly colored, fake cheese chips. The only happy medium is to find packaged foods that are quick and easy for me to pack, provide him good nutrition, oh and that small factor, if he will actually eat them. 

I got a couple boxes of Kashi's new crunchy granola and seed bars in the mail this week and decided to put them to the picky 5 year old test. 
He was a little skeptical at first, as he always is with new things, but after 1 bite, he was sold! (Insert happy mommy dance!)
The Chocolate Chip Chia Crunchy Granola and Seed Bar has 3 grams of fiber, 23 grams of whole grains and 7 grams of fat. It is really filling and, I think, quite a good serving size. Also, 2 days and the whole box is gone. Clearly my whole family loves them! 

Tracking PixelThe Honey Oat Flax Crunchy Granola and Seed Bar has 3 grams of fiber, 25 grams whole grains and 6 grams of fat. I love that Kashi includes things like chia seeds, flax and quinoa in these bars. All things that I try to sneak into my food, they provide in a tasty, kid and adult friendly snack. School pick up is right during the time I like to have an afternoon snack, so guess what's been in my bag this week?

I will most definitely be buying these bars again. I'm so glad to find a packaged snack that really has minimal ingredients, no high fructose corn syrup that my kids like. Rejoice, moms!

  1. Yum! I love Kashi bars so I am definitely going to try these.

  2. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
