Get Your Chocolate and Beat the Heat the Smart and KIND Way!

The latest addition to the Nuts & Spices line: Dark Chocolate Chili Almond

Going along with my Yummy Mummy Fitness theme today, I have to introduce you to my favorite snack right now. I've talked about KIND Snacks before {how they are DELICIOUS and good for your insides and outsides} but they've really outdone themselves with their latest flavor in the Nuts & Spice line, Dark Chocolate Chili Almond!

I've been doing really REALLY good on my fitness journey: drinking lots of water {and NO soda + only fresh juice that I've made and not store bought}, very little processed/junk food {and plenty of whole grains, lean protein, and fruits and veggies}, and my biggest hurdle-regular exercise! So I received these KIND Snacks just in time to reward myself-without derailing all of my progress.

I enjoy this as a great night time snack {I wait until the girls go to sleep so I don't get guilted into sharing-don't judge me}-with its 7 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein, it's just what I need to satiate my appetite so that I can get a good night's sleep {another important aspect of getting healthy/fit}. But it's also the perfect thing to throw in your beach/pool bag because hot foods can actually help you keep cool! It sounds a bit counter intuitive, but it's a scientific fact: eating hotter foods when it’s hot out cools you down! The reasoning is simply that when you eat spicier foods, you sweat more, which is your body’s best way of cooling down. The slight, deliciously spicy kick of chili in the bar {mixed with the crunch of the almonds and the delectable drizzle of good-for-you dark chocolate} is just the thing to cool things off in a super YUMMY way! Until next time...
