Back-To-School Snacking With Pizootz! {+giveaway}

Snacking is something that is so important! Keeping our bodies fueled properly in between meals is something that some people fail to do. I know it’s easy to get busy and caught up in life, but we still need to be fueling our bodies properly.

After school is such a common snack time for kids and even parents! Kids run into the house and head for the pantry (or snack cabinet.) They normally grab for a pre-packaged toaster pastry or stack of sandwich cookies. While these make amazing desserts, are totally yummy, and are a-okay to eat in moderation. As a daily snack, they aren’t always the best option.

 

Thanks to my friends at Pizootz, I’m able to bring this yummy review to you guys along with an even more yummy giveaway! Keep on reading for more details!

Make An Empact In How You Snack! {+giveaway}

Truth be told, we have more power than we think.

 

Just the touch of a hand or the sound of a word can make or break someones’ day. Today I’m going to be sharing with you how to make an “Empact” in your own life when it comes to snacking.

 

This post is centered around Empact Protein Bars! These bars have 10g of protein each, are 100% gluten free, and are super tasty! They make it easy to snack smart and still feel like you’re treating yourself (which you are; in more ways than one!)

I haven’t always had the best relationship with food. So, now that I’m older and much busier than I used to be, I try and nourish my body with what it wants and my soul with what it wants, too. I might have a big Greek Salad for dinner and have some dark chocolate for dessert; all in one day. To me, that’s healthy. I’m not depriving myself of anything I truly want or need. Eating what’s right for you will make a big impact on your overall health and wellness.

 

So whenever I’m hungry and want something savory yet still nutrient dense, I pick up one of these bad boys.

 

 

This brand currently offers 3 flavors: Coconut Crave, Maple-Licious, and Chocolate Cherry Bling. My favorite is chocolate cherry bling!

 

The brands motto should speak to any and every #goaldigger out there!

 

“At EM+PACT, we believe empowering women makes the world a better place, and this belief permeates everything we do. From our ingredients and core values, to the way we structure our business, it’s our goal to be intentional about appreciating, recognizing, and taking into account what women want and need. For us, this meant saying sayonara to the status quo surrounding the energy bar aisle, and delivering a healthy, delicious protein bar that’s unapologetically made just for women. A snack and go-to energy source that helps fuel your inner-goal digger, helping you get that much closer to achieving whatever impact you’re set on making.” (*)

 

These bars are more on the dry/chewy side and have a semi-cracker texture to them. I love the unique flavors and super classy packing!

 

I do hope they’ll come out with more flavors in the future!

 

Overall, I love the packaging, ethics of the brand, and ingredients list. The flavor is very nice too! I would like a more moist texture, but I think that’s a personal preference that varies person to person.

Got Gluten Free Cookies? Goodie Girl Does! {+giveaway}

GG-Logo-Text_2016-long-web-02-1

Cookie Monster is one among many of my middle names and (let’s be honest) the cookie craving struggle can be real!

Goodie Girl cookies can satisfy that craving while still being gluten free, peanut free, and 100% free of artificial ingredients.

I received a big box of Mint Slims and Chocolate Chunk cookies to honestly review. I loved them both, but they’re very different, in a good way.

The Mint Slims are chocolate-y, but not too sweet. They also have a nice burst of mint that doesn’t overpower the chocolate; it complements and enriches it.

Onto the Chocolate Chunk, let’s just say these were a big hit in my family. My mom is a chocolate chip cookie fanatic and was shocked when she found out these were made with quinoa flour!

I’ve never had anything made with quinoa flour before, but have to say I love it! The chocolate to cookie ratio is right on point, too.

I love both soft and crunchy cookies and these cookies definitely have a crunch to them. They’re not stale or too dry, but they’re more on the crispy and crunchy side.

All in all, this brand really impressed me! I love the crunchiness of the cookies and the flavor; as well as the fact that they’re gluten free.

 

GIVEAWAY: One lucky reader will receive a Goodie Girl Cookies “Goodie” Bag with one of every gluten free cookie flavor and a cute T-shirt. (ARV) $50!

This giveaway is open to US residents and will run from April 10, 2017- April 24, 2017. Please use the blue link below to enter.
