I feel as if most of my life lately is spent in my car, between driving to sports practices, sports games, errands, and everything else in between. Keeping a healthy snacking option in my purse at all times is a must. On days that I forget to put something in my purse I usually end up at drive thrus, eating unhealthy food. Or I’ll grab a quick bite out of a vending machine, which we all know is usually full of candy and other sweets. You know you’re guilty of these snaccidents too!
My problem with drive thrus and vending machines is that not only are the foods bad for you, but they don’t leave you feeling full. So within an hour I’m already hungry again! If I could stay home all day I would but most days it’s just not an option. Recently, while aimlessly roaming around Walmart I discovered Fiber One Bars. Not only are they packed full of nutrients but they come in a variety of delicious flavors. My favorite being the Blueberry Strudel bar with a close second to the Oats & Chocolate bar. Pair it with a fruit and yogurt parfait it’s the perfect combination.
Last week I bought a of the Fiber One Oats & Chocolate bar and crushed the bars apart into little bitty pieces. Then I tossed them in powered cocoa and melted coconut oil. Baked it at 250 for about 50 minutes pulled out and let cool and completely dry. I used that to sprinkle on top of my fruit and yogurt to give it a little crunch and fiber.
- 3 cups crushed Fiber One bars
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- ⅔ cup melted coconut oil
I decided to buy a box and see if they would help curb my snaccidents. And they worked! Not only do they taste good, but they leave you feeling full. I always make sure to carry at least two in my purse at all times. When hunger hits I just zip open my purse and pull one out. I no longer feel guilty about my snacking. Not only are they great for days when you’re on the go, but they’re also good for curbing your snacking at home.
I work from home and sitting in front of a computer most days leads to me snacking on whatever is convenient. You can’t get any more, convenient than a Fiber One Bar! Just pull one out, unwrap it, and eat. If you too are plagued by snaccidents that you instantly regret, I encourage you to go to your local Walmart and check out all of the delicious flavors Fiber One Bars has to offer. I guarantee you’ll find a flavor you’ll fall in love with and snaccidents will become a thing of the past!
