Like most Mums, I find myself on the go with the kids a lot. Between school drop off, school pick ups (at two different times), swim classes, karate classes, grocery shopping, errands, appointments and play dates etc I often find myself a little stretched when it comes to finding time for myself. Especially seeing as I'm always on foot. I love that we're able to live car free here in Berkeley but it does mean that all of my errands etc take a little longer.
As crazy as it sounds, I often find myself forgetting to eat. I always make sure that the kids are fed, but it's quite a common occurrence that I get to dinner time and realize that I haven't consumed anything other than coffee since breakfast time. Of course, if I'm not eating regularly then I'm not at my best for my kids or myself.
While I was pregnant with Mathilde I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. During my pregnancy it was more important than ever that I made sure to eat regularly, especially with the diabetes. That said, I was on the go even more than usual with all of the appointments I had to attend. To make sure that I didn't miss out on eating I kept my handbag stocked full of protein bars. My gestational diabetes may be long gone, but my habit of carrying protein bars with me has remained.
Zone Perfect Perfectly Simple bars are a great choice as a snack on the go. They're packed full of ingredients that not only taste good, but are actually good for you too. With flavors like Bing Cherry & Almond, Almond Toffee Crunch, Roasted Cashew & Dark Chocolate, and Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk there's a Perfectly Simple bar for whatever I'm craving. I like to keep an assortment of bars in my handbag at all times.
With at least 10 grams of protein per bar Perfectly Simple nutrition bars are the perfect snack to keep me going between meals. Or even for when I forget a meal - which is something I really need to work on!
