With a high stress job that requires me to be on all the time, I have to do a little bit extra to break away and make sure that me and my family are on a healthy path.  Since I became a mom, I feel time has gone by too quickly and often leads me to become disorganized.  The hardest part to living a healthy lifestyle for me  is preparing healthy meals and snacks that are tasty and easy to make.

As I previously mentioned in some older blog posts, it is very important for my family to have 3 small-portion meals and 3 snacks each day. I personally enjoy snacking between meals as it keeps my energy levels high throughout the day and prevents overeating later in the day.  Like many of you I’m sure I am forced to be a multitasker, and with my busy schedule I just don’t have time to slow down. My life will turn upside down if I don’t eat enough food or am forced to work on an empty stomach.

Food is always on my mind(!!) so eating right is something that I pressured myself to make a habit, and now really enjoy.  I always sincerely liked foods that are high in fiber and protein. My kids and I also love eating fresh fruits as snacks but it’s not-so easy to serve fresh food when on the road or practicing sports.  Its very hard to take fruit in the car without getting it bruised or making a mess. One of the best solutions is to keep nutrition bars in our home and on the go. My husband has been a big fan of ZonePerfect® Nutrition Bar and keeps a stash at work. He and I both appreciate how each bar has no less than 10 grams of protein. The wide flavor variety of flavors to choose from keeps us craving ZonePerfect® Nutrition Bar over others that aren’t so tasty or just have one or two flavors.  They also have a good source of fiber with high quality taste and NO HFCS. It comes in a perfect snack size that is I have found first-hand is a great match for the high-energy lifestyle.

With the taste of ZonePerfect® Nutrition Bar I have found them to be a great ingredient to pep up some recipes, too.  I recommend that you do the same, especially when in the kitchen and reaching for dessert-type ingredients, consider an alternative that may be a lot healthier and simultaneously bring the taste to a new level.
