To Snack Or Not To Snack…
By: Adam McCabe
The most exciting news I heard coming into the New Year from Fresh ‘N Fit was the introduction of their snack packs and dessert boxes. I have tried many of different meal plans (thankfully finding and loving Fresh ‘N Fit), but never had I tried a snack pack or dessert box.
A major health and nutritional struggle of mine has always been snacking. In fact, this is one of the largest issues individuals have when attempting a new diet, trying to lose weight, or just trying to live a normal healthy life. With the access to so many (and unhealthy) snacks, snacking becomes a vehicle into bad nutritional decision-making. Whether this comes from choosing bad snacks, or choosing to over snack, snacking can de the downfall of an individuals diet. We must remember to constantly be making good choices of what, when, and how much we snack.
What I loved about my Fresh ‘N Fit snack packs was the variety and the portion sizes. Below is a list of the snack pack I received with my meals this Monday.
Snack Pack week of Sunday, March 26, 2017:
- Coconut Chocolate Macaroons
- Paleo Granola
- Spiced Chia Roasted Nuts
- Pizza Muffins
- Chocolate Paleo Bar
- Cranberry Date Paleo Bar
- Chocolate Almond Banana Chip Mix
- Almond Butter Apricot Bites
- Olive Tapenade with Veggies
- Pesto Chicken Salad
Each snack was served in its own container and was labeled accordingly. I chose the paleo snack pack option, as it fits in with my current diet regimen. Fresh ‘N Fit offers two types of snack packs, paleo and healthy mix. Why the snack pack work great for me, is that it controls my urge to over snack. I often make healthy snacking choices, yet I continue to snack due to boredom or to pass time. I do not allow myself the chance to fully digest before I am in the process of over snacking. With the Fresh ‘N Fit paleo snack pack, I have the ability to know that eating one full snack pack item should be sufficient as my one morning or afternoon snack. This has greatly helped my issues of over snacking in my diet. Furthermore, the paleo snack pack comes with such a wide variety of different options, I am never bored with the snacks I have at hand. I also always feel comfortable (and never guilty) about snacking, since the items I am choosing to snack on are consistent to my diet plan and portions.
Like the majority of individuals out there, I love to wind down a night with something sweet to help finish off my day. I definitely have a “sweet tooth” and have constantly struggled with finding a healthy option for dessert. I often find myself eating the most convenient dessert possible and sacrificing my diet for my sweet tooth. I was the most excited to hear Fresh N Fit was coming out with a dessert line, for the fact that I knew their dessert options would help curb my portion control issues and give me a healthy balanced choice of dessert options.
I cannot even begin to express how satisfied I have been with the taste, quality, freshness, and portion sizes of the dessert boxes. I do not think I will ever be able to cut a small dessert out of my diet, but Fresh ‘N Fit makes me feel much less guilty with their fantastic plates. Below is the list of the dessert box I received this week:
Dessert Box week of Sunday, March 26, 2017:
- Peach Cobbler
- Pumpkin Spice Cake
- Apple Crusted Pie
- Pecan Bar
- Raisin White Chocolate Chip Cookie
- Whipped Chocolate Mousse with Fruit
I plan on making sure I have these two latest and greatest additions to Fresh N Fit in my weekly orders. Both the snack pack and dessert box provide healthy, portioned sized options for individuals who need help curbing the snacking or sweet tooth issues. The best part about both new features is how incredibly amazing they taste!
