Snack smart with Smart Sweets
I already know so many of you are like me and have that craving for sweets every day or two. I’d usually just have a protein bar and be on with it if I wasn’t feeling like fully indulging in treats. The thing about protein bars though is that they contain a decent chunk of sugar or sugar alcohols. This isn’t a bad thing, but for myself, sometimes I really just want some honest to goodness candy to snack on.
This is where Smart Sweets comes in. One pouch of these little delights is only 2g of sugar. That’s like a sprinkle of sugar on your day, and what else is nice, is that they actually taste like the fruit they’re flavored with instead of diabetes. Other fun facts are that they contain the same amount of fiber as 6 servings of vegetables and are only 152 calories a bag.
My other favorite thing about Smart Sweet’s is that they’re from Vancouver and made in Canada. And they say nothing good comes from Canada!
As I mentioned in the GNC Haul post, I get them in groups of 5 as the 5th one is free. They retail there for $4.99 each and when you price their box of 12 online it is about the same amount before shipping. Some people may say that is a lot for a 50g bag of bears but honestly, as an adult woman eating a moderately healthy diet, I only eat a bag of these once every 2-3 days and it’s nice to just eat them and know they fit into my lifestyle.
When I think about the fact that I spend $150 a month on my nails, which is essentially dressing up dead cells, spending $50ish on a box of snacks just for me doesn’t seem so bad!
