Snacking, all the time snacking

The thing about being really hungry all the time is you have to always be prepared to be eating again.

Since I’m trying to be healthier this second trimester (making up for my potato chip sins of the first few months!) I’ve been experimenting with all sorts of quick, nutritious, protein rich, and packable, snackable foods.

My lifesaver has been Wild Friends Nut Butters. All their glorious, delicious flavors keep me from getting bored when I eat my second or third apple with nut butter of the day.

Now, let me back up a moment. When it comes to foods, I’m usually a purist: I like my coffee black, my yogurt as plain as plain gets, and my nut butters sans sweeteners and other additives. So most Wild Friends flavors aren’t something I’d naturally reach for, but during BlogFest, I practically lived on their mini chocolate almond butter packets, and hot damn, it’s a powerful counterargument to my purist inclinations.

It’s just a bit of unsweetened dark chocolate and agave added in – which in my book is just a more efficient way to make your chocolate-nut butter combo happen, and I’m enjoying having “dessert” as a snack.

I’ve been exploring all the flavors, too, because Wild Friends was kind enough to send me NOT JUST that delicious chocolate almond nut butter, and vanilla espresso almond butter, but also a sampling of all their flavors in convenient mini packs.

I’ve been taking them EVERYWHERE:

To the beach! Is this sandcastle awesome or what? I had no hand in making it. 🙂


And on hikes:

Tigger wants some Wild Friends in his mouth, too, but he'll have to settle for this stick.

And kayaking:

Forgive this blurry picture; I took it through my well-worn “waterproof case,” aka a ziploc bag.


I am LOVING all the flavors. It’s so fun to mix it up so you’re not snacking on the same thing every day. Or multiple times a day, as the case may be. 😉

I received complimentary product to try. All appetites and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands who support Fit Approach, the #sweatpink community, and AMB.
