I know I’ve mentioned before that I am still struggling to get rid of baby weight + cake eating weight. Who knew you couldn’t eat crazy amounts of dessert after pregnancy in the way you could in your early 20s and teens. Well if you did know that, I sure didn’t. I seriously thought all that talk of “enjoy your metabolism now” was just crazy talk from “old people”
I’ve been pretty successful so far with counting my calories, cutting out sugar and simple starches, and lots of high impact interval training. I still have far to go though to get back to my ideal body shape.
One of my challenges is snack time. I want something low calorie but still satisfying to get me through the hunger and cravings when they hit without setting myself up for failure. New Maple Leaf® Natural Selections® PROTINIS™ fit that bill perfectly with around 100 calories per pack. The convenience is perfect for moms on the go. I just don’t have the time to make myself a snack like this between caring for an infant in the process of introducing foods, a toddler who is potty training and running my blog. I love being able to grab a PROTINI just like I might have grabbed a box of crackers or cookies previously.
PROTINIS™ snacks are available in eight flavours including Oven Roasted Chicken, Sweet Thai Chili Chicken, Mild Salsa Chicken, Honey Garlic Chicken, Oven Roasted Chicken and Cranberry, Oven Roasted Chicken and Superfruit, Oven Roasted Chicken and Mango, and Oven Roasted Chicken and Apple. They are available at major grocery stores across Canada and retail for approximately $4.99. Each retail pack comes with two PROTINIS™ snacks.
The chicken and fruit are perfectly paired and make for a satisfying snack that gets me through mid-day hunger so I can make it to dinner.
