We as women carry an arsenal of must haves in our handbags. From extra pacifiers to band-aids to make-up and hand sanitizer, we are prepared for literally anything our busy days can throw at us. But far too often, when hunger pangs attack, we don't have a snack readily available, leading to poor dieting decisions. I cannot tell you how many times I have been out running errands and felt my stomach growl. More often than not, this has led me to visit the Taco Bell drive thru, which effectively sabotaged my sensible eating goals for the day.
Does this sound familiar? Well, it should. A recent survey found that a whopping 75 percent of women say they fall victim to unhealthy foods when hunger pangs hit, and they don´t have access to a meal. So what is one great way to combat the many temptations around us when we need a little pick me up? Carrying a sensible snack in our handbags! We carry the world in our purses to begin with, but a satisfying snack for US often gets overlooked, leading to these poor, impulsive food choices.
I know I would love to have more control over these munchies attacks, so I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to review Fiber One 90 Calorie Chewy Bars. I have to admit, when I put the words "fiber" and "90 calories" together in my mind, I did not expect these to be tasty, let alone satisfying. Many other sensible snack bars tend to be on the dry side and taste eerily similar to cardboard. Thankfully, Fiber One 90 Calorie Chewy Bars did not live up to my not-so-good expectations. They are actually very tasty! These snack sized bars are chewy, chocolatey, and taste more like a candy bar than a sensible snack. Even my husband and my toddler loved these! And since they're portable, these make a great take-along while I am on the go.
With Fiber One 90 Calorie Chewy Bars, I can keep my dieting efforts in check and squash the temptations of burgers and burritos while satisfying my snack attack. I have a few of them in my handbag right now! Hey, if I can carry around about 20lbs of beauty, first aid, and baby accessories, I can carry something along to help take care of ME, too! Fiber One 90 Calorie Chewy Bars just might be Fall's Must Have Accessory!
