Watch as I explain to you why bigger isn’t always better. No, but really – today, we have a new video from my YouTube channel (follow here if you’re not already!) on How to Pick the Best Sweet Potatoes for Spiralizing.
We’ve got two more videos left in the series – kohlrabi and then, of course, zucchini.
Also, I’m reviewing and hosting a giveaway for one of my favorite ways to snack – with Nourish Snacks, founded by the amazing Joy Bauer (the official nutritionist for The Today Show and the founder of the largest private nutrition center in the country!)
First, here’s the video:
Now on to the snacks! I’m always looking for great on-the-go snack options for those days when I’m out all day, whether working or out with friends, hanging out.
There’s nothing worse than being out, not having time to sit down or grab a meal and being absolutely famished. Your energy levels plummet, your hanger sets in (and I’m a pretty cranky hangry person,) and then you make that bad choice to grab something – anything – to satisfy your hunger. We’ve all been there.
But, we can avoid these situations and keep focused and healthy by keeping snacks on hand – whether in the pantry for those after-dinner couch cravings or for those busy days. Instead of reaching into your purse for a sugary mint to hold you over, I recently discovered Nourish Snacks and I’m hooked.
I actually reached out to Nourish Snacks because I loved their philosophy and wanted to help spread the word – I thought you all would love their line of snack packs, like I do! I put them in my purse and I’ve been so thankful for having them to fuel me. I know how hard it is to find tasty snacks that are good for your body as well, that’s why I was so excited to share these with you.
All of their snacks are dairy-free, vegetarian, gluten-free, and carry no GMOs, preservatives or artificial sweeteners. No pack is more than 200 calories, either!
They have 35 different flavor varieties, but my absolute favorites are as following:
If I’m looking for something sweet:
- Granny’s Apple Pie (walnuts, cinnamon, apples)
- Cocoa Loco (dark chocolate chia-oat clusters, I add them to Greek Yogurt or eat them with a splash of almond milk)
- Coconuts For You (coconut chia-oat clusters)
- Nutty Nanas (chewy bananas and roasted walnuts – I spread almond butter over apple disc slices and top with this – the best!)
If I’m looking for something salty and savory:
- Holy Habanero (I toss these over salads – its spiced roasted corn!)
- Mind Your Ps & BBQs (BBQ roasted chickpeas – seriously addictive)
- Almond to Cherries (exactly what the name says – this is what I keep in my purse!)
Alsoooo, these snacks are perfect stocking stuffers and holiday gifts. Disclosure: I totally bought a bunch for a white elephant holiday party I’m going to this weekend. Please don’t tell my friends, it’ll ruin the point of white elephant!

Stay tuned tomorrow – I’m jumping on the holiday gift-guide bandwagon!
