Office Snacking with Orchard Valley Harvest

by Meghann on February 3, 2016

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Orchard Valley Harvest . The opinions and text are all mine.

The evolution of my hunger:

hunger

I thought I was hungry while I was IRONMAN training, but that level of hunger has nothing on how hungry I am while breastfeeding. I read somewhere that the calories you burn while breastfeeding peaks between 3 and 6 months, which makes complete sense considering I’m currently 4 months in and eating everything in sight. My sweet tooth is also out of control. DOUGHNUTS! CAKE! COOKIES! I want it all. My co-worker told me it was dangerous to sit by a breastfeeding mom. I guess she found it hard to resist all of the cookies runs I invited her on.

To control my hunger, I’ve learned eating frequent small meals and snacks is the best strategy. Having a well stocked snack drawer is also key to keeping my sanity (and preventing me from ballooning to 500 pounds on doughnuts, cake, and cookies).  Thanks to Orchard Valley Harvest, my snack drawer is now stocked with delicious healthy alternatives when my sweet tooth goes into overdrive.

Like I said, my sweet tooth is out of control so anything with chocolate wins me over. I really enjoy the Chocolate Covered Almonds and Chocolate Raisin Nut Trail Mix. The nuts and fruits are picked at their peak, minimally processed, and have no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. Everything is non-GMO project verified.

Orchard Valley Harvest snacks also come in convenient Grab & Go packages that are easy to throw in my purse for an off-site meeting and guaranteed portion control.

Sadly, nothing right now! I usually keep Larabars and Kashi crunchy chocolate chips bars, but I’m getting burnt out on “health bars”. These chocolate covered almonds sound delicious! A much better choice than anything that’s in the vending machine downstairs at my office.

I don’t have a snack drawer yet, but right now I’ve been making all too frequent trips to the Kahwa in our neighborhood on our daily walks for their oatmeal, chocolate chip, flax seed, peanut butter cookies. They’re amazing!

I usually have a small bag of mixed nuts with me (unsalted, dry roasted), a Picky bar when I’m on the go. At work I like to have those + apples or pears and PB at the ready to snack on before my commute or I’m usually starving by the time I make it home!

I’m completely envious of your office La Croix water stash! I keep a jar of pb and oatmeal packets on hand and take little snacks to work every day, cheese sticks, yogurt, carrot sticks, sparkling water, cucumber slices to add to crushed ice from DD down in the lobby. Never thought to keep nuts. A co worker keeps a drawer completely full of small candy bars, DANGEROUS.

I work from home so my snack drawer is my entire kitchen which can be good or very bad! Sometimes I make the healthy choice and have some cheese and nuts and other times I get into the chocolate stash at 9 am. I remember that breastfeeding hunger very clearly and it is intense!

My appetite has been in overdrive, since i upped my workouts to make them even harder and include free weights. I’ve been living on salads, Kit Organic Bars (which are Cliff bars answer to Lara Bars), nuts (almonds, pistachios, etc.) and some dark chocolate.

Unfortunately, my sweet tooth is also in full gear so I’ve been battling with that (all of the chocolate bars and chocolate chip cookies please).

No snack drawer for me since I’m on maternity leave. I go back to work in a few weeks and I’ll be at the 3 month breastfeeding mark, so I could use these snacks! For me it’s about portion control… hand me a bag of chocolate covered almonds or trail mix and I’ll kill that bad boy in one sitting. I like that these are pre portioned 🙂
