During this time of year it is really difficult for me to stay away from all the sweets. Having an exceptionally bad “sweet tooth” that has caused me lots of trouble over the years has rarely deterred me and it is only made worse when I am home by myself for 7 hours out of day. So I have been trying something new in my “me time”, inspired by the Skinnygirl Snack Swap. Instead of having a little basket of candies in my snack cabinet, I switched it out for Skinnygirl Nutritional Bars. I will say that their Chocolate Peanut Butter with Sea Salt bars made it a whole lot easier to give up everything else!
Throughout the month of September, Skinnygirl is encouraging women to swap out their sugar craving snacks for more healthy options. They actually have this fun Snack Swap tool. You choose your favorite sweet snacks and they give you healthier options via recipes or matching nutritional bar.
On top of that, you have a chance to win a $1000 shopping spree at Target! Now tell me that is not incentive enough to go find delicious alternatives? Plus, the swap tool does a great job with matching up your favorites. I chose a Salted Caramel Sundae and was paired with the Chocolate Peanut Butter with Sea Salt. Oh sweet heaven, I love these. My second favorite is the Banana Oatmeal and Dark Chocolate!
The website also offers plenty of nutritionist-approved healthy snack recipes and ways you can share with your friends. Plus, you can get $1 OFF Coupon by using the code: SNACKSWAP35 when ordering from their shop!
Skinnygirl nutritional bars are Gluten Free, Kosher and contain no artificial sweeteners or flavors. Each of them are less than 200 calories and are a great source of protein and fiber. They’re also wonderful to pair with other healthy options, such as crumbling up in yogurt!
For me, I am content having my little Skinnygirl basket. Sometimes it is nice to stop cleaning the house or working in the afternoon, put on some music and just have a me moment with my favorite bar. I may not be able to completely give up all sweets, but I can swap snacks for better ones.
You can find out more about Skinnygirl Nutritional Bars by visiting their Facebook Page and/or @SkinnygirlDaily on Twitter. Make sure to share your #sgsnackswap moment with them on Instagram!
