When Food Is Good For More Than Eating AKA: KIND Snacks Are Awesome!

I'm not gonna lie {this may be my new catchphrase}, I love food. I love preparing it, eating it, and even watching shows about it. So I don't generally turn down opportunities to sample new foods-whether it's full on meals or dishes, components to incorporate in my cooking, or snacks. I sort of really love snacks...

Which can be counterproductive to the fact that I'm trying to lose weight. Fortunately, I don't have to worry about that with these delicious KIND Plus Bars! Not only are they the perfect in between meals pick me up, they help you look good too! Certain healthy foods can promote shiny hair,  as well as its growth and movement, and counteract the damaging effects of the drying winter months – simple as A,B,C: Vitamin A for shine Vitamin B for growth Vitamin C for movement.  Busy moms {like me} can get their A-B-C’s on-the-go with a KIND Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio + Antioxidants bar  (1 bar provides 50% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamins A and C. Almonds are one of the most significant sources of riboflavin (a B Vitamin)).

Other ways to get the A-B-C's in your diet:

Vitamin A (Aids in the production of scalp oil, defending against dry locks)-Try butternut squash or sweet potato soup for lunch, or spice up your dinner with chili or red pepper flakes.

Vitamin B (Increases blood flow to the hair follicles, delivering your scalp oxygen and nutrients to stimulate hair growth) - Get ready for the day with a yummy breakfast of scrambled egg whites with steamed spinach or drink a glass of 1% milk with any meal.

Vitamin C (Produces collagen, the structural fiber of hair. A good dose of C lends flexibility to tresses, helping to prevent breakage) - If citrus fruits aren't your thing, you can get your fill of Vitamin C from cauliflower, broccoli, or brussel sprouts.

So happy eating! Your tummy {and your hair} will thank you!

Until next time...
