As the year ends and we start planning for a new year, most of us start to make resolutions.  Positive changes we'd like to make in our lives to benefit us for a new year.  At the top of that list is usually "health".  Whether it be losing weight, working out more, eating better, or drinking more water.  Don't wait until January 1st, start now!  Any time of year is the right time to make "good for you" choices.  I have already started myself!

One of my honest to goodness biggest unhealthy habits is not eating enough.  I'm not good at eating breakfast then before I know it, it's 3pm and I haven't eaten a thing.  I knew this had to change.  I went to Wal-Mart on a search to find the PERFECT solution!

In the Health & Beauty section I found nutrition bars & shakes.  I thought this would be perfect!  It's easy to grab and go, and I don't have to take the time to make anything.  It's also convenient and light.  In the Health & Beauty section you will find the new V8 Protein Bars & Shakes in several flavors!

There are 6 flavor options across the bars and shakes.  The V8 Protein Bars & Shakes taste delicious!  It feels like you're treating yourself to something naughty, but they're actually a good for you choice!  With 12g of Protein and 3g of Fiber, they're very satisfying and filling.  The shakes get their protein from milk, soy, pea, brown rice, and quinoa.  Including vegetables like sweet potatoes and carrots!  The V8 Protein Bars & Shakes are sweetened with honey, brown rice syrup, and sugar.

I work outside of the home 4 days a week.  Two of those days are Saturday & Sunday starting at 7am.  I'm not really a morning person, so I pretty much roll out of bed, make myself somewhat presentable, and head out the door.  Because of this I rarely take the time to bring food with me and will go the entire day without, or I'll go through the drive thru somewhere.  NOT a good for me choice.  I have started bringing my V8 Protein Bars & Shakes with me.  Tossing them in my bag the night before.  Definitely a BETTER for me choice!

Monday through Friday I spend the majority of my day in front of my laptop.  Blogging, working on social media, and completing other business.  Around 3pm every day I start crashing.  I'm sure this is when my morning coffee caffeine wears off, ahah.  I've started using my V8 Protein Bars & Shakes as a snack to pull me out of my afternoon slump.

When I'm out running errands or doing some shopping, I tend to not remember to eat until I'm famished!  Then I will end up eating something bad like fast food.  I've started making sure that I have a V8 Protein bar & shake with me.  This actually saved me when I was out doing some last minute Christmas shopping!  It was kind of an impromptu trip that I hadn't planned on.  I didn't have breakfast that morning, and luckily I had a V8 Protein Bar & a Shake in my purse!  It satisfied me and fueled me for more running around!

I love my V8 Protein Bars & Shakes!  I highly recommend them!  Have you tried them yet?  What flavors do you like?!

  1. So glad I'm not the only one who actually forgets to eat until it's too late and then I'm starving. I know when I keep a protein bar in my purse I do much better. #client
