With the kids now in school for three weeks, I figured it was about time to get my nutrition back on track as I begin to train for a marathon. It is so easy in summertime to just sit and eat junkier foods when you have the kids around constantly. No I wasn’t eating a bunch of candy bars and bonbons, but I wasn’t as careful and thoughtful about what I was putting in to fuel my body since I wasn’t working out very much. Snap Kitchen is my go to place to help me get my nutrition back on track for #backtoschool time.
I adore the juices and smoothies that Snap Kitchen offers. My favorite “treat” one is the Chai Cashew “milkshake”. It is only sweetened with dates and it makes me feel as though I am having a cheat without really cheating. It satisfies that sweet craving that we all seem to have. They have their own protocol for a cleanse if you need a jump start back into healthy eating. Sure I have my own juicer, but sometimes it is nice to just pick one up and not have to worry about the clean up especially now that both kids are in school and soccer season has begun.
Their wide array of meals choices makes it easy to find things that you will like. My biggest problem area of eating is lunch time. I rarely want to cook anything at lunch and sometimes you just want a hot meal. I chose 2 meals in the orange containers and 2 of the green since they are the perfect portion for lunch. I was able to heat them up and know that I was eating a balanced, gluten free meal that would help me get through the middle of the day hump.
Now that we have soccer practice three times a week and two games on Saturdays then I have been relying more on Snap Kitchen meals and juices. I can grab and go their chicken “enchiladas” or the chicken macaroni with butternut squash… I also cut up a piece of fruit and it fills me up. For 4 meals and 6 juices I spent just under $90. That may seem like a lot, but to have a quality meal that you can just heat and eat is worth it for a busy mom. It also helps inspire me on flavors that I can use to make my own heat and eat meals. Would you rather spend $8-9 on a fast food meal that leaves you still hungry and sluggish or a quality meal from Snap Kitchen that nourishes your body and gives you the fuel it needs to perform and stay on top of the mommy duties?
Now I just need a Snap Kitchen to open in Kingwood so that I don’t have to drive as far to stock up my fridge!!
Check and see if there is a Snap Kitchen near you.
I was sent a gift card in order to purchase these meals from Snap Kitchen, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
