Get Your Fiber On with Fiber One...{Review & Giveaway}



As I have recently written, I am attempting to lose the baby weight. Running around all day isn't my problem--it's constantly go, go, go in this house at the moment. So what does that leave me with? My eating habits.


I have found that since Brynlie arrived I don't pay attention as much as I should to what I'm putting into my mouth to eat. Sometimes I can chow down on a bowl of cereal, a sandwich and some cookies now and then. What I need to work on is this: having fresh fruit easily available for myself and increasing the amount of fiber in my diet.




When I was offered the chance to try out the new Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies I jumped at the opportunity to test them for myself. At just 90 calories and 20% of my daily fiber in just one brownie this was a perfect snack and a much healthier alternative than a handful of chips or cookies.


***What I Thought***

I got to test out the Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies as well as the Chocolate Fudge Brownies. I had Leo test out the Chocolate Fudge and I claimed the Chocolate Peanut Butter for myself. The brownies definitely helped satisfy that need for something sweet and chocolatey. They were good--especially for only 90 calories! The one thing that I noticed was that they weren't as moist as I thought they could be. But other than that? They were a good, healthy alternative to having a quick and easy snack. Perfect for my weight loss journey!


***Win It***




One lucky winner will receive a Fiber One gift pack! The gift pack contains one box each of Fiber One 90 Calorie Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie, a duffel bag, water bottle, jump rope, snack case, headband and bracelet.

Jenny said...

My favorite healthy snack would have to be fruit...but the trick is if I know I am going to have it that day, I cut a bunch of it up. That way I have no excuses and I don't let it go to waste.
But those brownies look really yummy!

My top 2 eating healthy tips:

1. Don't buy unhealthy food! When I have junk in the house I am more likely to eat that when I am in a hurry or really hungry.

2. Eat several small meals/healthy snacks a day and never let yourself get really hungry. That is when you make the worst food choices

Rachel said...

I buy lots of vegetables, low-fat ranch, and take those with my lunch instead of chips.

Eat lots of fruit s and veggies.
As of the 1st of the year, I added a fruit and veggie to each of my meals and a fruit snack too.

My favorite healthy eating tip is simple, put something like lemon in your water to flavor it so you'll drink more! People are supposed to drink half their body weight in ounces of water each day- for example if you weighed 180 pounds you should drink 90 ounces of water! it seems like a lot, but we're 80% water so it's a HUGE key to being healthy!

For me, portion control seems to be the biggest problem! So I have taken to fixing my dinner on a luncheon plate instead of a dinner plate. The full plate fools your eyes and brain into thinking that you are eating a HUGE plate of food when you actually aren't!

The best eating tip is to cover half your plate with veggies and then add a small portion of protein and dairy.
Also, eat your fruit with your meal so that you can process the sugars along with your meal.

Toss the salt shaker aside! There is plenty enough sodium in most packaged foods and fresh foods don't need it!
