Enerchi Bites is re-defining the energy bar. How often to you actually eat the whole bar?

Twin sisters, and co-founding duo, Annie and Marla, solved the problem of having to break off a piece and made it easy for you to have a couple bites and or share with a friend.

They also only the added good stuff to their products–superfoods like chia seeds and hemp seed protein, and real-food ingredients like organic unsulphured apple rings and sunflower seeds. Each ingredient adds value to the nutritional and taste profile.

Enerchi bites are free of soy, dairy, and nuts! All the bites are soft and chewable (imagine cookie dough texture) so they are kid-friendly and pre-molar teeth friendly. Now, you don’t have to hesitate to give them to your kids or include them in their school lunch boxes. Enerchi bites are the perfect mid-day snack, giving you not just an opportunity to re-fuel your body, but to also re-fuel your mind. Their zen logo represents the symbol of chi.

It symbolizes and reminds you to take a breath, and a moment to yourself to reflect, munch mindfully, and then voila, the chi, also known as, “vital energy” will flow through you with less effort, and more ease.

How To Eat More Fruits & Veggies!

How To Eat More Fruits & Veggies!

Eating Fruits & Veggies are Essential

Here are some tips on how to develop fruit and veggie habits:

If you do not eat a lot of fruits and veggies, your body will need a little time to adjust to the lifestyle. Here is a quick 1, 2, 3 on how to make small adjustments, which will result in huge gains later.

  1. Fruit: Eat fruit in the morning. A few great options are blueberries, raspberries (each lower in sugar) or apples (higher in fiber). From there, you can even add various color combinations, making your AM fruit a fun adventure. We also recommend a play on your favorites, using fruit like frozen grapes in place of popsicles or ice cream.
  2. Veggies: Start by adding 1 type of veggie to each meal. If you are not sure where to start, go for whatever is in season. Examples are; scrambled eggs or egg whites with Kale or Spinach for breakfast, a Tuna Salad with Green Beans for lunch and Lean Steak with Brussel Sprouts for dinner. Brussel sprout cooking tip – Cut Brussel Sprouts in half, saute’ on hot pan making them slightly charred, then roast in oven at 350 until soft. A little oil and balsamic will sweeten them up!
  3. Final Step:  Our final tip is to make sure that you are eating healthy snacks in between meals. This will keep your pallet on point to appreciate the fruits and veggies to come. Before you know it, you’ll be eating lighter, healthier and fresher.

Cheers to healthy!
