Fuel Up Before the Big Game with these Healthy Snacks

I don’t know about you but I often forget to cook for myself on days I’m prepping dishes for a big event. Do you do that? I usually get up, have my coffee, breakfast maybe, and then just go into overdrive trying to get everything done. With the Super Bowl next week, I’m sure most will spend the week planning, shopping, prepping and cooking to some degree depending on whether you’re hosting or just attending the big game. So do your body good and grab a few healthy, on the go snacks to fuel up before the big game. The goal is to live healthfully no? Having nutritional bars, yogurt, nuts and fruits will usually do because they’re quick and easy so I was very excited when the makers of one of my favorite nutrition bars, KIND, sent me a few samples to try. I was even more thrilled to learn that KIND has a couple of spiced up products like their Dark Chocolate Chili Almond, Cashew & Ginger Spice, and Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan bars.

These Nuts & Spices bars aren’t overly spicy but the heat in the Dark Chocolate Chili Almond bar is very pleasing. It’s a warm heat that comes from cascabel, ancho and habanero chiles and builds over time for a satisfying sweet, salty, nutty flavors with a kick. Another great thing about the ingredients is they’re all items you recognize, no funky preservatives or fillers, just natural goodness. I usually have a bar with water but this time tried something a little different for a well rounded meal. Just chop up a bar and sprinkle over yogurt and fresh blackberries or any fruit you like!

The Healthy Grains Clusters is another great product from KIND and there are so many ways to enjoy it. You can add a pinch of cayenne pepper to a cup of clusters and mix it in with your pancakes or muffins batter, or oatmeal to get in extra nutrition and give you energy for hours.
