I have a post coming up that I am working on about weight gain, but I’m going to save that for another time since I’m honestly a bit emotional about the whole thing.
Back to happy times – there’s a new (healthy) snack in my kitchen this spring. BACON RANCH POPCORN.
When I opened the box from CVS, I really didn’t even know what to say. I swore I saw little rays of sunshine and rainbows coming out of the box when it came to my door. Last year, I worked with CVS to chat about healthy snacking and I really enjoyed the products from the Gold Emblem and Gold Emblem Abound line. But this? This is different.
Yesterday I was able to go to see a live taping of “The Chew” and Daphe Oz said something that really stuck with me.
“Eating healthy should be easy and fun, not an obsession.” Daphne Oz
That’s exactly what this popcorn is. I also mix it with the Dark Chocolate Fruit & Nut Trail Mix – and it feels almost sinful. That’s how eating needs to feel since when I’m deprived, I want to run head first into a pile of bacon cheese fries and wash it down with a large margarita. It’s all about balance.
As I cleaned out my old apartment in New York City, I took a little extra time to pay attention to the kitchen. Moving is another way to get a fresh start. It’s a lot of work, but you are changing all of your surroundings, so it’s easier to change what’s in your kitchen cabinets at the same time. AKA this is the time to remove all temptations. I took this opportunity to stock the cabinets with healthy options that make Kevin and I feel like we are eating things that we love because we love the taste. Not just food that is “good for us” and we “need to eat” if we want to get back in shape.
The whole CVS Gold Emblem and Gold Emblem Abound line make that super easy… and the Bacon Ranch Popcorn makes my hearts sing.
I’m proud to partner with CVS Pharmacy to promote their exclusive Gold Emblem and Gold Emblem abound snack lines. I am being sponsored by CVS Pharmacy for my posts and activities, but all opinions expressed are my own, and all product claims or program details shared should be verified at CVS.com or with the appropriate manufacturers.
What healthy snacks are you loving this spring?
When you move – do you bring everything OR do you take this opportunity to start fresh?
