Friends, we’re one month into the New Year. So, how are those New Year’s resolutions coming along?
The truth is, for over half of y’all reading at this very moment, you may have already fallen off the wagon. The thing is, habits are habits, and lifestyle choices are often hard to change. Plus, even though January 1st has a good ring to it, so does the day after Valentine’s Day, post-Easter weekend, never before Cinco de Mayo… I mean, is there ever the perfect time to start a new lifestyle?
Here’s one thing we can do: make simple substitutions that take the pressure off. You’ve all heard the popular suggestions such as taking the stairs at work, reducing processed foods and eliminating sugar-filled sodas. And it works, for sure… but only if you stick to it. (Raise your hand if you’ve had a problem sticking to it. Yeah, me too.)
However, when the change you make is not only healthy, but delicious too, you’re well on your way to snacking success.
Earlier this year, I was contacted by Taste of Nature to Take the Pledge to Snack Healthy. Taste of Nature – the unique Canadian company that has developed a cult-like following for its organic fruit and nut bars in 35 countries around the world – was motivated to create the Taste of Nature Pledge to Snack Healthy after a survey uncovered that Canadians want to snack better and that almost half of respondents (45%) felt that “adding one healthy snack to my diet every day” was something they could do in order to be healthier.
Sounds simple enough, right? But to tell the truth, I faltered. Because I’ve been pitched before to try “healthy” granola bars and snacks, and let me tell you, they tasted awful. Not gonna lie: if healthy snacking involves eating cardboard-like substances, I AM OUT.
But here’s why Taste of Nature is different – the organic food bars are absolutely, positively delicious!
I’m partial to Quebec Cranberry Carnival, and have found the perfect, satisfying breakfast, snack or answer to life’s hunger pangs: crumbling it over vanilla Greek yogurt. YUM.
Say oui to a snack bar that explodes with certified organic cranberries, luscious nuts and tasty seeds. This uniquely delicious fruit and nut bar is 100% certified organic, non-GMO project verified and certified gluten free.
Friends, I am addicted! Taste of Nature bars are a source of fibre, are low in sodium, and, best of all for Canadian snackers, they taste great. They contain nothing artificial: no fillers and no chemicals with names as hard to pronounce as they are to digest. Such a simple – and yummy – snacking substitution!
So, how can you get in on the deliciousness? Two ways. First, take the Taste of Nature Pledge to Snack Healthy, found on the company’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/tasteofnature, a promise to switch to at least one healthy snack a day. It’s a small change that can make a big difference. And as an extra incentive, everyone who signs the online pledge until February 28th will be entered into a daily draw for a yoga mat and Taste of Nature bars (value $55).
