A couple of months ago, I underwent some huge life changes regarding the way I think about and consume food. Eating and indulging in rich foods was my escape from life, and my go-to when I was stressed. I didn’t make the healthiest choices for a long while, and my body and my health paid for it. When I got to be 75 pounds overweight I vowed to make big changes to my relationship with food. I thought my days of snacking were over, but then I found snacking options such as GOOD THiNS.
I try to eat as clean as possible, but it’s not always easy. For my family, I began with baby steps such as eliminating foods with high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils. Now I am gradually moving onto eliminating artificial flavors and colors. It’s a process, but foods like GOOD THiNS make these changes so much easier.
On my regular Walmart shopping trips I make sure to pick up a variety of GOOD THiNS for the entire family, but I keep a stash especially for myself. What I love about GOOD THiNS is that there are NO artificial flavors, NO artificial colors, NO high fructose corn syrup, NO partially hydrogenated oils, and NO cholesterol. I also love the variety in flavors. The Potato varieties (Original, Sweet Potato, & Spinach & Garlic) have 60% less fat than regular potato chips. It’s a no brainer when it comes to deciding which snack option is the healthier one. For those with gluten sensitivities, pick up any of the Rice Varieties (Simply Salt, Veggie Blend, and Poppy & Sesame Seed), which are Gluten Free.
Making the change from unhealthy to healthy truly can be easy. Watch your portion sizes with these scrumptious crackers, add in a lot of water, and clean meal choices in between, and you’ll be set. I am happy to report that I am no longer 75 pounds overweight, as I have lost nearly 35 pounds!
On your next trip to Walmart, be sure to pick up a box, or two or three, of GOOD THiNS. Tag #SomeTHiNGOOD with a picture of your favorite GOOD THiNS snack! I’ll be following along so I can see what you picked!
