According to a Mintel study, snacking may be the new American pastime with 94% of Americans snacking daily. Recently I visited NBC Studios in New York City to chat with NY Live about snacking smart especially when you’re at work.

Snacking is a big trend with millennials and the good news is 33% of snackers say they are snacking on healthier foods. For this TV segment I partnered with some great brands like barkTHINS.  I love them because they’re the creators of snacking chocolate. It’s high quality, fair trade chocolate mixed with mindful and delicious inclusions like almonds, pumpkin seeds, and toasted coconut.  They come in a re-sealable pouch to help with portion control and let me tell you – they.  are.  delicious.

If you’re looking for a great snack bar think about Health Warrior Chia Bars.  They’re the only bar with chia seeds as the first ingredient.  Ounce for ounce chia seeds have more protein than an egg and more Omega 3’s than salmon.

If you’re looking for a beverage try Pique Tea.  It’s unique crystal design offers all the health benefits of tea in an instant.

Need a pick me up?  Especially in the summer I like the smooth taste of Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee.

Tired of plain water?  Try’s Suja’s new pressed probiotic waters.  It’s enhanced water with just fruit and vegetable juices and vegan probiotics.

Disclosure: I was compensated for the above TV segment but not this blog.
