Applegate’s HALF TIME Lunch Kits Giveaway

What would you do if you didn’t have to pack your kid’s lunch? Watch tv? Play with the kids? Go for a walk?!

Love this question! This was one of my nightly dreaded activities…packing lunches. Hubby would roll his eyes and not quite understand why I hated this task so much. It is definitely an advantage to homeschooling. No preparing lunches ahead! ha!

Applegate saves the day and is taking the dread out of our hands. It is time to try out their brand new HALF TIME lunch kits!

HALF TIME Kits

You won’t want to miss out on these! They are teamed up with Stonyfield and Annie’s to create the first pre-packed lunch kit with natural and organic ingredients. HALF TIME™ includes Applegate natural meats and cheeses (which have no artificial ingredients or preservatives, and are antibiotic- and hormone-free), Annie’s Homegrown crackers and snacks, and Stonyfield Organic YoKids Squeezers. They come in three varities: Turkey & Cheese, Ham & Cheese, and Bologna & Cheese

Doesn’t that sound awesome?!

If your kids are like mine they beg for those other gross pre-packaged lunches in the grocery store. You know what I’m talking about. I will not buy them! Full of nitrates, preservatives and artificial ingredients those kits are. SO excited to find an option like HALF TIME! Thank you!

Step up to the plate and try a HALF TIME kit! Not just for health, but to give you a packing break. :)

Power Crunch Protein Energy Bars Giveaway

I love this statistic that Power Crunch sent to me…

Many parents tend to feel overwhelmed by the return of youth sports leagues. A 2013 ESPN Study reported that 21.5 million U.S. children participate in sports teams throughout the year, and many of these leagues assign parents to the often dreaded post-game “snack-duty.”

Dreaded? I love snack duty! Do you know why? Because other parents bring gross cookies, candy and disgusting high-fructose drinks. When it’s my turn I make sure to bring something a bit better! Pretzels, organic snacks and either water or maybe a 100% fruit juice.

Power Crunch Bars

But Power Crunch is right when they continued to say that choosing the right snack can be difficult for parents who want to provide their children with a post-game pick-me-up that is both nutritious and tasty. This is where Power Crunch Original bars come easily into play!

Not only do Power Crunch bars provide the proper nutrients and protein children’s bodies need to refuel after a game, but they come in seven delicious flavors —-> Triple Chocolate, French Vanilla Créme, Peanut Butter Créme, Peanut Butter Fudge, Cookies & Créme, Wildberry Créme and our newest stroke of genius, Chocolate Mint. Each individually packaged crème-filled wafer snack bar is packed with 13 grams of protein, contains only 5 grams of sugar and sits at 205 calories.

They pride themself on inventing Smart Nutrition – “We take normal, everyday whey protein, and hydrolyze it (break it down) to the smallest of protein peptides (molecules) called di and tri peptides. These proteins are absorbed rapidly and completely, so your body can fully utilize all of the protein you eat providing you with the greatest nutritional benefit.”

They do taste good! And I love treats that taste like you shouldn’t eat them. My samples were very chocolately and had crispy wafers in them…a favorite combo of mine. Adding in the mint was a huge bonus. I know my family would love the other flavors too!

Buy Power Crunch on their site, use their local store locator or find on Amazon!

Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars & Target Giveaway

Do you usually plan your snacks? I am not good at that which is probably why I try to keep only healthy food in the house, but I’m not THAT good where my house is completely void of something junky. If you read my blog you know I have two weaknesses. Chocolate and potato chips. Sweet and salty and I could probably eat them together! ha!

During the month of September, Skinnygirl has a fabulous website page dedicated to helping us swap out unhealthy snacks we crave, for healthy options that taste just as good. It’s really neat and I can’t wait for you to give it a try!

I chose Salty and then potato chips as my snacking dilemna and the Snack Swap site’s tool picked three options for me to eat instead – Roasted Chickpeas, Spicy Popcorn (both with recipes to make!) and Skinnygirl’s own bar Dark Chocolate Pretzel. yummm!

Those are great choices don’t you think?!
