We include a workout in every box and as a thanks for reading our blog we have something just for you! Our Nutritionist selects each snack and she put together some tips to go with this line up of clean snacks.
Here’s some fun flat tummy facts before we get to the snacks:
- Battle the bloat. Drink water for 3 days straight and no other liquids. Focus on foods or snacks with 5-7 ingredients that you recognize.
- Say No to Sugar & Say Hello to a tighter tummy! Avoid added sugar and replace high sugar fruits with low sugar options. Kiwi, apples and pomegranates.
- Eat Lean. Be Lean. Focus on lean fats, avocado, nut butters, seeds (especially pumpkin seeds, not all seeds are equal). Get the most bang for your buck and buy nutritious foods that help you help yourself.
What you eat is 80% of the focus, the other 20% should be on the exercises you do. Our June Fit Snack box has your Personal Trainer created lean body workout and includes tips.
It’s not about a flat tummy at the end of the day. It’s about a healthy body and mind. Your stomach is the core of your body. Stronger stomach muscles can help end back pain and give you better overall balance. When you practice physical balance you are also balancing your mind because well, they’re connected. You want a strong body and strong mind. This will prepare you not just for a day at the beach, but a lifetime of feeling your best. Why not? Aim high. Snack healthy. Together let’s raise the bar for healthy snacks!

Raw Bite Organic Fruit and Nut Bar: Looking for a snack that car seriously fill you up? Raw Bite has you covered. Though each bar is smaller in size, these fruit and nut bars are full of fiber and protein, and they only contain natural sugars. If you have dietary restrictions, this bar might just be the golden ticket. Every Raw Bite bar is dairy free, gluten free and corn free. For anyone who is vegan, paleo or trying to eat more organically, Raw Bite is worth checking out. Visit www.rawbite.us and use code FITSNACK for 20% off through 09/30/2017.
Ricaroons Coconut Energy Bar: Ricaroons has somehow managed to make their protein bars taste more like a dessert than a healthy snack. Ricaroons uses three different forms of coconut: coconut oil, coconut flakes, and coconut palm nectar. Coconut digests smoothly, converting to energy with a minimal insulin effect. This means that with coconut comes consistent energy rather than a spike and crash like from most other sugars. Each bar is nutrient-packed that provides long lasting energy and they are the perfect snack for anyone on-the-go. They even have Pumpkin Spice flavor for the fall! Visit www.rickaroons.com/buy and use code SNACKFIT for 15% off through 10/2/2017.

Last month we featured a summer staple, sunflower seeds! This month we wanted to shift our focus to a different type of seed, Chia Seeds from Get Chia! This company has a variety of chia based snacks and bars that you can count on for your Super Food boost. Check out the Get Chia store to get your fill of delicious snacks created with Certified Organic Chia Seeds.
Here are some perks these small but mighty seeds provide:
Fit Snack Facts:
- Chia seeds contain SIX TIMES more calcium than milk, and more protein than soy
- They are grown on the Salvia Hispanica plant, which is related to mint
- “Chia” is the ancient Mayan word for “strength”
Your May Fit Snack box includes a Strawberry Blast FruitChia Bar. You won’t find any added sugars or preservatives here, just apple puree, apple concentrate, strawberry concentrate, and chia seeds. This is a yummy way to get your daily servings of fruits in, as one bar packs two full servings of fruit and contains over 1000mg of Omega-3. If you’ve tried them in our Fit Snack box, you have likely fallen in love, you can get more of these nutritious bars at www.getchia.com.
Aside from these convenient and delicious bars, chia seeds alone have a light nutty taste making them easy to add to recipes. Be sure to add Get Chia’s other products in your next salad, green smoothie or cup of Greek yogurt!
Can you believe that 30 years ago, chia was mostly used to grow overnight animal plants? Thank goodness companies like Get Chia have brought their A game so that we can benefit from this super-seed and get the most out of our snacks!
