Hello, friends!

Hope you’re having a wonderful day! As you may or may not know, I’ve got a terrible sweet tooth and this makes eating right a little more difficult. Lately, I’ve been staying on the right track by choosing “better for you” indulgences, like DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut products.

I feel like the real downfall for me has been the shift from being a stay-at-home mom to a work-from-home mom. When I looked after the boys all day I was constantly running around and chasing them, going to the park, running errands, etc – in other words, I was really active. When I made the switch to working from home it meant just that, working at my desk, stationary. And when I’m sitting in my office working all day, I don’t really get the chance to move like I used to. This is why I’ve been getting active in the morning when possible, and making sure I’m making better choices food-wise. And that beings with my favorite – snacking!

I’ve created a little snack basket to keep upstairs right at my desk, so when I’m snacking, I’m snacking smarter. No greasy snacks for this gal! One of my favorite snacks lately has been this Easy Five Ingredient Trail Mix.

Creating a “Better for You” Snacking Basket

Step One | Grab a basket, I love these heavy weave chalkboard baskets the best!

Step Two | Add in a kitchen towel, because snacking can sometimes get messy!

Step Three | Fill Mason Jars with a few variations of good snacks. I love peanuts, dried banana chips, raisins, and the trail mix recipe provided above.

Step Four | Layer in packages of your favorite DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut products. Also pictured here are: DOVE® Dark Chocolate Cherries and DOVE® Dark Chocolate Blueberries.

Step Five | Enjoy! Also, if you know someone trying to make better snacking choices, be sure to throw one together for them as well!
