I have been compensated by ZonePerfect® for this post; however I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own. #Ad #ZonePerfect
I admit, I am one of those people who forgets to eat lunch — often. I just get so wrapped up in what I am doing, I don’t think about it. Mornings are my work time, and suddenly it’s time to pick up my daughter from school. Then from the moment I pick her up, it’s go, go, go — the afternoon has begun. And at some point, I realize I am hungry. Not just hungry but REALY hungry. And now that I am pregnant, oh boy am I hungry and lightheaded.
I discovered ZonePerfect bars early in my pregnancy. I walked past them at Walmart, and did a double take. Although nothing else sounded good to me (hello morning sickness), the bars looked good. I wanted one. So I bought a box and tried one in the car on the way home.
(Yep, that’s my 30 week belly!)
I was thrilled to discover they were good, really good. And just like that ZonePerfect bars became my go to snack – my Little Wins™ on busy days. Even when eating regular meals is difficult for me, I can count on my ZonePerfect bar. Packed with the protein I am lacking (pregnancy makes me not like meat), ZonePerfect bars quickly became my go-to snack. The chocolate peanut butter bars have 14 grams of protein!
ZonePerfect Little Wins
Being a busy (and pregnant) mom means there are always things to do. In addition to keeping up with the kids (after-school activities, homework, playtime) there are everyday chores like laundry and dishes. As if that weren’t enough to keep me on my toes, I also work from home. Work and mom duties are never done, which is why it is important to celebrate life’s Little Wins.
Somedays it’s hard to keep going, but at the end of the day I sit down with my daughters at bedtime and we talk about our “one thing.” Our one thing is something that made us happy, our favorite moment of the day. It’s our way of celebrating life and reminding ourselves about the importance of Little Wins in a busy day.
An example of my Little Win this week was realizing that I can park my car to watch soccer practice so I don’t have to sit in the heat and bugs to watch my mini soccer player. I was able to see all of the action while enjoying AC and my ZonePerfect bar, of course. Score one for mom!
ZonePerfect bars are perfect for celebrating life’s Little Wins – whether you are pregnant or not. You can see how other busy moms are celebrating life’s Little Wins by checking out the ZonePerfect Little Wins page. Life is all about the little moments because each of those Little Wins add up to make a big difference, so get inspired to celebrate your own Little Wins with ZonePerfect.
ZonePerfect Bars Flavors
So far I have stuck with my original flavor choice – chocolate peanut butter. (If it works, why mess with it?!) But after months of the same snack, I decided it was time to branch out and try a new flavor – chocolate chip cookie dough. It is also really good, which means I might be ready to branch out and try even more flavors. (Perhaps dark chocolate almond!)
ZonePerfect Bars are available at Walmart in the following yummy flavors:
- Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
- Cinnamon Roll
- Fudge Graham
- Chocolate Mint
- Almond Raisin
- Dark Chocolate Almond
With so many flavors the only question is, which flavor will you try first? You will find ZonePerfect bars in the Health and Wellness area, near the Pharmacy at Walmart.
