Does anyone out there have a similar struggle with food because you are at home all day? It is SUPER hard for me to stay out of the kitchen, just grazing and snacking all day long! I’ve realized something over time: I am a grazer, plain and simple. I like to eat little bits of food all throughout the day. I don’t think this is really going to change about me anytime soon. It’s just who I am.
But here’s what I have complete control over: the foods that are available for me to eat. I can tell you now that if there are grapes in the fridge I will happily munch on them. If there are double-stuff oreos in the pantry I will happily munch on them. I’m gonna be munchin’, so it is my job to make sure I have the right stuff on hand for all my snack sessions!
And glory be, I have found SUCH an awesome snack. Tim and I are both totally in love and may or may not watch each other like hawks to make sure that the other person doesn’t eat more than their share (not really kidding)! Somersaults are these fantastic little nuggets of awesome! They are packed with sunflower seeds and toasted grains, as well as with flavors that will please most any craving! Here are their current flavor offerings:
- S.S. Sea Salt
- Santa Fe Salsa
- Salty Pepper
- Chez Cocoa (also known as the snack of my dreams)
I love Somersaults for so many reasons, but here are just a few:
- They are perfect for on-the-go snacking
- They require no prep work (good for those extra lazy moments in life)
- They actually fill me up with just a few bites
- They are packed with ingredients that my body really needs, and can easily convert to fuel
My only real complaint is that these aren’t sold anywhere even remotely close to where I live, and I live in a respectably-sized city! Please find your way into Whole Foods, or EarthFare or Food Lion! The silver lining in this cloud is that you can buy direct from their website, though.
Buy it!: Maybe you will have better luck than me. Check their store locator to see if you can find a place near you that stocks them. I promise you, it is a purchase you won’t regret!
Win it!: One lucky Stuff Parents Need reader is about to be doing all kinds of somersaults, because you will be getting an awesome prize pack of Somersaults with every flavor and every size. Woo hoo!!! Hopefully the winner won’t live within driving distance of me, or else there might be a risk of some mail theft. 😉 The contest will run until March 23rd at 11:59pm EST when a winner will be selected using Random.org. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to winning notification before the prize if forfeited and a new winner is selected. Open to residents of the United States. Limit one entrant per household, please.
Mandatory entry: Tell me about a snack you currently turn to when you get the munchies, whether it is good or bad for you!
My answer: if I’m seriously hungry, chips and salsa will fill me up pretty quickly. Having chocolate in the house is very rare, not because I don’t buy it, but because I eat it so quickly.
