I have a love/love relationship with food. There really aren't many things that I dislike, other than sea urchin, and I've always eaten my veggies, and although I'm not a vegetarian I eat vegetarian meals several times a week. Like so many people, I struggle to find balance in what I eat, but I think there is room for all types of foods in your diet, if you just try not to go overboard. Easier said than done, I obviously struggle with this more often than I like, but I realize now more than ever that I need to set a good example for my children, as my Dad did with me (if you'd like, see this post here.......and while you're at it, if you'd like to see how I became a runner, click on this link to RunnerDude's blog).
Today I was so excited to receive a package from Newman's Own Organics, chock full of all sorts of organic treats and snacks for me to try, and review. There is so much to talk about that I'm going to have to do a few posts to cover them (tough job huh?).
Newman's Own Organics started as a division of Newman's Own (love their light salad dressings), but are now their own separate company. Their tagline is "Great tasting food that happens to be organic" They focus on the kinds of products we loved as kids, but they take them one step further by using the highest quality organic ingredients. I'll be trying out their dried fruits, chocolate (!), soy crisps, various cookies, pretzels and mints. I'm going to have Mike and the kids help me out too, kids and husbands obviously like to snack, plus I have to wait to sample the chocolate goodies, since that's on lockdown this month.*
So I'm curious, other than fruits and veggies, what do you snack on? And what do you give your kids?
*The reviews will be my own, I haven't been compensated in any way for them.
