The Perfect On-the-Go Snack You Need This Fall!
I can’t believe school has already started! Wasn’t it just the start of summer vacation and I was planning my trips to California and Cape Cod? I’ll admit that I’m still finding my way with the time I have. For the second year, the kids take the school bus and we have nearly an hour less time together in the morning, and about a half hour less time together in the afternoon. And that’s without after school activities. I realize every day how precious this time is right now. And I realize we’re always told to enjoy the kids while they’re young, but that doesn’t mean that quality time doesn’t get lost in the day-to-day shuffle and sprint. I’m all about time management.
Scarlet will be doing piano lessons, Girls on the Run (track/running), basketball, and after school classes. Des is starting second grade with great friends, great reading skills, and a summer’s worth of acting in plays behind him. And what about me? Well, what about me?! I’m still juggling three jobs, and sometimes that’s four. In the fall, photography picks up 1,000%! Blogging picks up as well, although it’s always fast for me. I still do editing, community management, and the odd data entry job too. Not to mention that one of our dogs, Astro, is still quite young and active, and we have a new cat too. I feel like I’m always on-the-go!
Today, I’m telling you about Jack Link’s Bars, because they’re the perfect on-the-go snack! I always have them at my desk, and I always put them in my purse in the morning in case I’m at a photo shoot, waiting in the school parking lot, or just somewhere that hunger strikes. Basically, anywhere. I love that Jack Link’s Bars are a better-for-you snack and that they’re great for on-the-go, and give you the energy you need to manage busy days. It’s a great way to get in quick protein when you need a boost! Plus, I love having bars.
That’s right – the Jack Link’s you already love now comes in a bar! I head to Walmart and get my favorite varieties of Jack Link’s Bars: Original, Teriyaki, and Peppered. Three great flavors. I’m not even sure I can pick one favorite.
I mentioned they’re available at Walmart! Now we have to talk about the fact that they have 8 grams of protein, are 70 calories, and are gluten-free! Plus, they are made with 100% Beef. I found them easily in the jerky aisle. In fact, they have multi-packs available in the jerky aisle of Walmart! Honestly I couldn’t be happier. It’s not just that I have busy days and need protein snacks. It’s the adventurous spirit in me. Since I was a kid, I’ve loved Jack Link’s products because I love 100% Beef in my snacks. These bars are awesome! They’re so easy to toss in a purse, briefcase or school lunch so you always have the option to have one!
In terms of a perfect on-the-go snack, this is my ideal snack. I like to pair it with portable fruit, like an apple, banana, or orange, or even some almonds. Then I’m totally set for busy days.
