Let us snack: Graze

If you are a student, person on the go, or just an all around snack lover like myself, Graze is about to become your new best friend.

Living a healthy lifestyle is so incredibly important to me and keeping up with it while going from class to class tends to be a struggle that I’ve been working to fix. Not to mention, snacking can become quite dangerous if you’re not reaching for the right ones. 

Not only are these snacks portion controlled so you can’t over indulge like most of us do on a roll of Oreos, but the options are endless. When I say endless I mean over 100 snacks to choose from aka regardless if you have a sweet tooth or a salty tooth, you’re set. 

I was sent a box of amazing snacks from Graze to try, and spent this week doing just that! Let’s take a look:)

HOW good do these snacks look!? Like I said, this last week I spent time trying out these snacks for myself. So here are some of my favorites ↓

Cocoa & Vanilla Flapjack– SO good. The perfect pre workout snack and reminded me of cocoa krispies from my childhood days *sigh*

Protein Cashew Kick- If you like yourself a nice trail mix, you will definitely enjoy this one. The dried chickpeas were my favorite part not to mention it has got quite a kick to it if you like spicy food!

Kettle Corn Kern Pop– Need I say more?

Strawberries & Cream Protein Granola Topper- Great for on top of some yogurt, or by itself as a snack!

 

Those were just a few of my favorites out of this Graze box. Who doesn’t love snacking? Be sure to check out Graze and try out a box of your own!!

PROTEIN PANCAKES. Where have they been all my life!?!?

Today I will be sharing with you how I created my first successful batch of protein pancakes! I used two items and a child could do this but hey, why not share.

HOW TO:

 

  • Mix one cup of Kodiak Cakes mix (shown below, purchased mine at Target), with one cup of water
  • Mix together to create your pancake mix (for thicker pancakes use less water)
  • If you would like to add more flavor you can add vanilla extract or peanut butter however I kept it plain!
  • Pour mix onto your pan (spray non-stick spray prior & set stove to medium temperature)
  • Let mix sit about one minute on each side then flip over until it is golden brown/a little dark
  • Added sliced strawberries and bananas on top and it was PERFECT! ENJOY
  • YOU’RE DONE!!

*Also, I successfully did 6 unassisted pull-ups at the gym today. By the end of my workout I did about 20 total and I shocked myself! A year ago I couldn’t even do one. Just goes to show ya that with hard work and dedication you get stronger mentally and physically!
