Why hello there,
can you believe it's wednesday again?
I can't decide whether this week has gone fast or slow,
i've been getting a little mixed up with the days lately
but that's what happens when you have nothing to do.
One of the problems with finishing school is all the waiting around.
I can't wait for my exams to be over so there'll be no more of it!
I'm bored out of my mind!
Seriously, I've never been so bored.
Is anyone else ridiculously bored at the moment?
You should email me and we can un-bored each other.
(lovely english Kristy)
So I've been thinking - when did snacking become bad?
I know that excessive snacking can throw anybody's good diet out the window,
but are people forgetting that snacking can actually work to your benefit?
I always eat snacks.
The key is knowing what to eat and knowing when to stop.
My favourite snacks range from fresh fruit to trail mix to cheese to muesli bars
and of course I add in treats to keep me sane.
The media is always talking about what we shouldn't eat.
But is there really such a thing as a bad food?
Except for that rotting potato in the back of your cupboard, that gets the bad label.
I'm all for moderation and don't think that anyone should ban anything from their diet.
I love my fresh fruit and vegetables but I eat dessert every single night
and you know what? there's nothing wrong with that!
We all need to look past what we're told in magazines and think about what's good for us.
A while ago I was sent some products from Go Natural
These fruit and nut delight bars were full of crunchy nuts
with soft bursts of sweet dried apricots, currants, apple and sultanas
and topped with a ripple of dark chocolate.
The honey soy nut clusters were super crunchy
and a perfect nibbly for entertaining as well as random snacking.
They're a savoury snack but the honey gives them a hint of sweetness.
Go Natural's Fruity Bites are little balls of dried fruit coated in coconut.
Their individual packs would make them a great treat to add to kid's lunchboxes or as something to keep in your bag.
Go Natural's FruitNut was something totally different from what i've had before.
Its a bar made from a date and cocoa base with crunchy pieces of macadamia and almonds.
A little too soft for my preferences, but I'm sure they'd firm up nicely if placed in the fridge or freezer.
All of these Go Natural products are available at super markets across Australia!
So check them out :)
But do tell me, lovely people..
How has this week been treating you?
And are you a snacker?
