We are BACK after a whirlwind weekend in Washington DC for the Army Ten Miler. I am still coming off the runner’s high I got from the race and experience and hopefully will be riding it all week. I am going to need it because this week is cray-cray. It’s weeks like this that I am really glad I keep a ready supply of grab-and-go snacks.
When on the go I try to choose my snacks wisely. I want something that will keep me satiated and energized. When Special K sent me a box of their products to try I was stoked because they were right up my alley:
Special K has launched a line of protein products to help you outsmart hunger. Consuming products packed with protein helps satisfy your hunger longer leaving you full, happy, and no longer hangry. Having the grab-and-go option of the meal bars and protein shakes makes life for this busy mama that much easier. I love throwing one of the shakes into my gym back to immediately drink after my workout to optimize my results. Without them I would end up not getting that essential post-workout fuel in because mom duties take precedence the second we get home, often leaving me without time to make myself a snack. All the flavors were delicious but absolute favorite shake was the milk chocolate.
These products rock my socks beyond the gym though. One of my guilty pleasures is a small bowl of cereal before bed while I enjoy a cup of tea. The Special K protein cereal helps satisfy that craving while giving my snack more substance. There’s just something awesome about ice cold milk and crunchy cereal 😉
I am a true believer in the #TheProteinEffect and cannot stress the importance of getting enough protein enough. While I love getting my protein from natural sources, these Special K products are an awesome addition to my pantry for the ease and simplicity of begin able to grab them as I run out the door.
Have you tried any of the Special K protein products? What is your favorite way to outsmart hunger?
