Being a full time blogger means I’m on the go. A lot! My day to day schedule keeps me hopping from one thing to the next. It’s a fun and exciting livelihood I’ve evolved into and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I’m running here and there every single day. One day I’m working on the porch, another day I’m heading to a charity project or going out to lunch and shopping with blog friends. My days are varied and busy and I sure don’t have time to get bored, which is fine with me. After spending years in the corporate world, being an independent self-employed person is definitely a blessing and I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else. I love my busy life and blogging goes hand in hand with it. I do work also very hard at trying to eat healthy. I really try to pick and choose what I eat for lunch and on the go and while I love salads, cheese and crackers, or sliced turkey for lunch most days, my sweet tooth also calls out often and I have to feed it occasionally.
You know what I mean?
I also spend time at the gym working out and that has been part of my routine for over 30 years now. I’m so glad I started that habit all those years ago in my 20’s. It has definitely helped me with the aging process and we all know that can’t be stopped, but we can help slow it down by exercising and eating right, so that’s one of my goals in life. To eat healthy (for the most part) and to stay on a regular exercise routine. I don’t buy a lot of prepackaged foods to snack on and generally prefer nuts or fresh fruit, but I got the chance to try out Newtons’ new cookies, Fruit Thins Banana Drizzled with Dark Fudge and Fruit Thins Coconut Drizzled with Dark Fudge.
Even the bag is unique with the large letters and obvious banana and coconut inside the bags. These cookies are crisp and chocolate-y and the coconut version was my fave. They are a very tasty treat!
A few things to note about these new cookies from Newtons, they are made with whole grains, real fruit, and dark fudge with 8g of whole grains per 31g. Did you know dark chocolate is good for you? I know, that’s a plus! I love trying out new products and can vouch for these: crispy, fruity and chocolate draped. Perfect for on the go eating and I know I’m not the only one running like crazy these days. Visit newtonscookies.com to take a look at all their new Fruit Flavors and also get access to great tips. Enjoy them yourself!
