We are talking healthy snacking today.
Yes, HEALTHY during the holiday season! Holidays and healthy eats can go hand in hand, especially with some help from flavorful Big Slice apple products.
Today I have an amazingly simple recipe and a deliciously healthy giveaway for y’all… Perfect timing for all of those New Years’ resolutions if ya ask me ;) But first, let’s cover this whole healthy snacking thang.
If you’re anything like me, you want your snacks to be quick, easy to grab, and packaged to take with you when you’re on-the-go. We all live busy lives – Who has time to spend 30 minutes on prepping a snack?! I definitely don’t! Between running to the gym to teach, responding to emails and chasing after my now on-the-go baby, snacks need to be consumed in 30 seconds or less.
I was so happy when Big Slice sent me a big ol’ package full of goodies a few weeks ago. I’ll be honest, I was not familiar with Big Slice prior to my goodie package so I’m going to give you a few details in case you were in the dark about this amazing brand like I was.
Big Slice features 17 delicious flavors that are available in glam on-the-go pouches (They are perfect for the gym bag!) that are all approximately 100 calories per pouch. They use all-natural ingredients with no artificial flavors or preservatives and let me tell you, the apple and fruit chunks are juicy, chewy and taste super fresh!
I’ve been snacking on these pouches pre- and post-workout, mixed in with my oatmeal and yogurt at breakfast, and when I’ve craving something sweet but want something on the healthier side. Big Slice has yet to disappoint!
Another thing I love about Big Slice is that a portion of each purchase goes to the Spark Foundation – an organization that supports women and girls in need.
I decided to try my hand at mixing Big Slice into the most popular recipe here on Olives ‘n Wine… The result? An amazingly moist, perfectly sweetened, chewy and healthy muffin. The recipe is exactly the same with a slight addition… 2 pouches of natural Big Slice. The apple pouches were a total game changer for this recipe, I won’t be making them without them again!
Oh! And I used dried cranberries rather than raisins in the recipe… I like to use what I have on hand and cranberries were in my pantry ;)
Now, for the fun part – One of YOU are going to win a fun package from Big Slice!
The giveaway consists of:
- 12 sample pouches, assorted flavors
