Chocolate and Blueberry Muffin Tops: An Unexpected (but welcome!) Healthy + Sweet Snack
My life is busy.
I am a mom, wife, full-time blogger (this is a real thing) and self-admitted exercise addict (when I have the time). My days are spent running errands, cleaning, chasing after my child, cooking, photographing, editing, writing and managing a home so that my family can live a semi-organized life. Oh, and I try to work out once a day.
I live a very good life and I am very fortunate to help supplement my husband's income with something I love to do (because, let's face it, we need it). Sometimes, however, in the midst of all the crazy I forget to take care of myself.
Oh! You too? Hi, there! Let me guess, you're a mom to some crazy (awesome) littles of your own or have a super stressful job. Well, whatever the reason, you're not alone. We've all been to the place of so busy that you forget to eat and subsequently end up making poor food choices the rest of the day.
My on-the-go easy snacks? Crackers and chocolate covered peanuts or almonds (by the handful). Many days of the week this is my sustenance until dinner. It's not realistic for me to sit down and eat 3-5 square meals a day. I know this. Maybe one day, but not today. That said, I also know I have an insatiable appetite for sweet things (hence the chocolate covered nuts).
So what's a girl to do?
Well, I will tell you one easy change that has helped me replace some of my previous favorite sweet snacks with something just as sweet, but much more nutritious.
What are VitaTops Muffin Tops and why am I telling you guys about them? Well, first and foremost because they are delicious. Whenever I find something delicious, I like to tell my friends about it. Second, and most exciting, these awesome muffin tops are actually healthy. Made from clean and simple ingredients, they offer a wide range of health benefits (like protein and fiber!).
I know, I was pretty skeptical at first, too...but then I ate one and now they've quickly turned into my go-to sweet snack. And, if i'm being really honest, the deep chocolate Muffin Tops are so deliciously fudgy that I've even started eating them for dessert (over my usual less nutritional favorites).
Found in the frozen section at my local Target store, each muffin top comes individually wrapped, making them a breeze to pack away for an easy snack or sweet and healthy treat.
VitaTops come in a variety of flavors including: Deep Chocolate, Wild Blueberry, Superfood CranBran, and Protein Banana Chocolate Chip.
I found my VitaTop Wild Blueberry and Deep Chocolate at Target. You can find yours at your nearest Publix, Kroger, Stop & Shop, Shop-Rite or Target locations or locate your nearest VitaTop carrier here.
