I’m going to let you in on a fun secret – and it’s my favorite snack ever that we always have in the house.

I am a snacker times a million. It’s in my nature and it’s how I operate best. During my hungriest days – a major growth spurt in high school – I had to snack every couple of hours. During my busy days now, it’s honestly about the same. Especially with work and travel, we have to rely on GOOD snacks! Now you’re probably wondering about me giving you snack tips, right?

Right. I’m a professional snacker! I have credentials! Not really, but what I am is a busy and fairly fit working mother of two, who needs to eat a LOT of snacks. When I worked in an office job, many moons ago, the vending machine options were deplorable. I didn’t yet care because I was younger and fairly convinced of my own invincibility, but something about turning 30 or turning into a parent changed that for me. It’s all about various flavors and better options during my snack breaks.

You probably already know this, but if not, allow me to introduce myself. I have two kids – five and eight – and I’m both a photographer and an influencer. There are one or two other jobs there too. To say I work hard is putting it lightly. I think a lot about snacking moments lately, because in my career(s), this is a hectic time of year. I need great snack options.

I first discovered Weight Watchers® International by both my father-in-law (big fan) and my parents too.

I think there’s some sort of law of life, in which you always rummage through the fridge, drawers, and cabinets of your parent’s kitchen within five minutes of arriving on their doorstep. Even if you have just eaten before you arrive!

Am I right about that, or am I right? No matter what time of day it is, or how hungry I am, I still have to at least look. And I hope upon hope that my kids will do the same when they visit me one day as adults. I hope my children’s children will rummage through my snacks! I do it at my in-laws’ houses too. One set has the most exquisite apples you’ll ever taste. The other set will always have ice cream in the freezer, even in the beach house. My parents have perhaps the widest range of snacks, but one thing I can always count on is plenty of Weight Watchers cheese snacks. For as long as I can remember.

My favorite is Weight Watchers string cheese. Their string cheese and other cheese varieties are the PERFECT choices for snacking, and recipes, when maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They offer a variety of cheeses that are not only smart choices, but will delight your taste buds too. In fact, they offer a money back guarantee! That’s great taste, Guarancheesed!

One of my favorite ways to eat string cheese is this easy recipe for String Cheese Kebabs:

Ingredients:

Weight Watchers Light String Cheese
Smoked Turkey
Olives
Toothpicks

Instructions:

Slice up your string cheese into fairly thin chunks. Put one on your toothpick, and then add an olive, some cut turkey or chicken, and another piece of string cheese. Sometimes I add pepperoni too. What a delicious and EASY snack to make!

I’ve always loved that Weight Watchers cheese snacks, like string cheese, help me make smart choices to feel good about during the day. They are a great snack choice, and also an awesome part of recipes, like my easy one. The cheese snacks are made with low-fat milk and have an amazing taste you have to try to believe. The individually wrapped items offer portion control and a great snack break. I love the string cheese, sticks, singles, shreds, and spreads too! My string cheese and snack sticks are only 1-2 SmartPoints® per serving. They’re also great for on-the-go portability, which is a great plus for my life.

I get mine at Stop & Shop right in my town.

Bring the Farmers Market Home From Walmart With These Snacks

This post was sponsored, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Are you ready for some Farmers Market inspiration? I know I am!

I always feel so lucky when it’s summer, because the local produce is off the hook. I’m talking BALES of kale (like bales of hay), seasonal berries, and the hopeful start of fall harvests. I think the August crops are the most delicious, and so perfect for mixing with FAGE Total yogurts. I love that Walmart has all the produce I need to enjoy the wonder of August. Last week, I picked up my favorite vegetables, as well as blueberries to remind me of the wild ones in Maine!

Farmers Market

Whether you’re entertaining, giving your family snacks, or just looking for better-for-you choices, there are great options.

I am an enthusiastic snacker. It’s in my nature and it’s how I operate best. During my hungriest days – a major growth spurt in high school – I had to snack every couple of hours. During my busy days now, it’s honestly about the same. Especially with work and travel, we have to rely on GOOD snacks! Now you’re probably wondering about me giving you snack tips, right?

Right. I’m a professional snacker! I have credentials! Not really, but what I am is a busy and fairly fit working mother of two, who favors better-for-you snacking. When I worked in an office job, many moons ago, the vending machine options were deplorable. I didn’t yet care because I was younger and fairly convinced of my own invincibility, but something about turning 30 or turning into a parent changed that for me. It’s all about various flavors and better options during my snack breaks.

Here is my favorite snack: FAGE Total Greek yogurt with fresh, August blueberries. This reminds me of mornings at the Farmer’s Market, and the wonderful snacks you can create with produce and the right accompaniments.

FAGE Total 2% Plain Greek yogurt is easily found in the dairy section of Walmart. It’s all-natural, made only with milk and live active yogurt cultures, and it’s protein rich too! FAGE Total can be used as a substitute for sour cream/mayo. In fact, we make deviled eggs with it. YUM. Scarlet’s favorite way to eat FAGE Total is with honey. Des’ favorite way is with blueberries. My favorite way is with berries and honey! I love raspberries, but the blueberries were calling to me this week. My recipe is SO EASY. FAGE Total is the star.

The taste is SO creamy. And when you mix it with a bit of honey and the tart/sweet blueberries of late summer, I would actually challenge myself to find a more perfect snack to eat. You can also use FAGE Total 0% Plain Greek yogurt.
