You may remember last week when I mentioned that I’m a bit of a snacker. Well, a good majority of that snacking occurs on the go. And as I head into the back to school season, I know that my need for on the go snacks is just going to increase. Not only will I be running two kiddos to and from two different schools, but I also work full time and with that work comes events and lots of travel...which I love to be honest. Basically, I need all the energy I can muster and I certainly can’t access any energy reserves if I’m not fueled up properly!
So, let’s take a look at a typical day pour moi...I’m willing to bet it’s not much different than the days of you fellow busy mamas! We’re out the door for the first school drop off by 7:30 and then it’s on to the next one at 9:00. I would love to say that I sit down and eat the hot meal that we put out for the kids, but more often than not, I’m running around packing backpacks and trying to squeeze in a little bit of work before we leave. And that’s why bars are my best friend. The CVS Gold Emblem Abound line is full of delicious bars that I can keep in my bag when I’m too busy to sit down in the morning.

Bars are also perfect for travel and much better than the “snacks” they typically hand out on the airplane! I don’t always have time to grab lunch once I land. I often find myself rushing right to a meeting. Snacking is a lifesaver at those times for sure! And if I don’t have CVS Gold Emblem Abound bars in my bag, you’ll probably find their Almonds in there. Talk about your healthy pick me up. Almonds are a fan favorite and I don’t have to feel guilty one bit about that snack!
