How I Am Incorporating Alert Caffeine Gum Into My Fitness Routine

Image
Thank you Alert Caffeine Gum for sponsoring this post. All opinions and experiences are my own.

Anyone else struggling with getting back into a routine after being off for the holidays? I know I have. Add in that Lil Man was sick an entire week before Christmas and daily naps became the norm, I'm really struggling to make it through a normal day.

Although we haven't gone back to school yet, Hubby is back to work. And that means if I want to get in a workout or at least one without company and interruptions, I have to get up early and workout before Hubby goes to work. And the rest of the day is the usual go go go.

Thankfully I've had the opportunity to try Alert Caffeine Gum. 1 piece of Alert Gum is about the equivalent of a half a cup of coffee. (And for me that means no jitters). It's just enough ooomph to give me the boost that I need.

#BringDessertBack With Fiber One Giveaway

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

We all know that I have an unnatural desire fondness for sweets. So when I was given the opportunity to try Fiber One, I was genuinely curious since I've never tried their products. But I was also a little nervous.

I am a self proclaimed snack snob - especially when it comes to lower calorie type treats. To me, most snacks of this nature have 'that taste'. You know the one I'm talking about. They just have a taste where it doesn't taste like others snacks do. I have always been very particular, and I usually wind up not enjoying them. So, I was curious to try Fiber One, but I wasn't every optimistic that I would really like them.

I was given 3 boxes of Fiber One products to try.

Cookies & Creme Protein bars, Crunchy Chocolate Chip, and Mint Fudge Brownie. 

I skeptically tried
the Mint Fudge Brownie - at first glance, it looked yummy. The texture felt like a 'normal' brownie. And the taste? I loved it. I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the Fiber One Mint Fudge brownie and a regular homemade brownie. I loved the mint chocolate chips inside. And I'm assuming it was the fiber, but it kept me full longer. And I wasn't craving sweets in a couple of hours like I do with other types of sweet snacks. And coming in at 90 calories and 5 grams of fiber, it was a nice afternoon snack to curb my sweet tooth.

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but check out this Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich from Dessertify

In fact, Dessertify has a lot of recipes that I would like to try. 

I also enjoyed the Cookies & Creme Protein bar, but of the three products it was the least of my favorite. But I did enjoy it. And I would choose it as a snack. It had a little more calories than others with 140 calories and 5 grams of fiber. 

The crunchy chocolate chip cookie was also delicious. I even gave Hubby one, and he also thought it tasted good. I loved the crunch. I loved the texture. I loved the taste. It also was only 110 calories and contained 5 grams of fiber. He didn't try the Mint Fudge Brownie because I didn't want to share ha. Yeah, I'm keeping those for myself! 

My overall thoughts? I loved them! In fact, they've worked great to curb my sweet tooth, but they are lower in calories and provide a little fiber (which I don't get enough of). 

In fact, I loved them so much that I contacted the company and asked if I could do a giveaway. I honestly probably would have never tried these products. But now that I have, I'm a new fan of Fiber One. And I will be enjoying them in my future.

  1. I've tried a few different Fiber One bars, but not these. I think the Mint Chocolate flavor would taste really good. I also love that these snack bars are healthy and are only 90 calories (with the one I want to try)!
