As a busy parent, you may have noticed that staying in shape and focusing on all-around health and wellness is difficult. Between kids, school, travel, work and all that falls between, balancing working out and eating well are challenging for most. When we’re on the go it’s so easy to make the quick (and not so healthy) choices when it comes to food—and let’s be honest, what parent hasn’t been a garbage disposal for their kids’ plates or consumed half the carb-heavy snacks at the park.
Both Jason and I have been making an effort to work-out more and eat healthy foods including adding good fats to our diet. We’ve been alternating workouts during the week and weekends, encouraging one another to get to the gym, because the days of the two of us going together are long gone. And I love to cook for my family, so carving out more time in my day to make more healthy meals is on my fall to-do list too.
But when it comes to during the day, I certainly am not putting enough fuel in my tank with a bag of veggie chips or a candy bar. Sometimes I need something rich in fats and protein to keep it moving. Jason has always loaded up on protein to keep his energy up but when I need a boost I am never in a place where I can grab a spoonful of peanut butter or eat a handful of almonds. I need a fast and efficient boost.
I recently discovered these genius little nut butter and nut oil pouches that you can eat on-the-go straight from the pouch, you can mix the oil into a hot or cold beverage or top your salad or veggies with them. The packets are called…FBOMB…because F is for Fat and Fat is smart Fuel for your body! Basically, they come in two groups: FBOMB Nut Butters and FBOMB Oils. And yes, the name makes me giggle every single time I have one!
The FBOMB Macadamia Nut Butters come in delicious combinations like Macadamia Pecan with Sea Salt, Salted Chocolate Macadamia, and Macadamia Coconut Nut Butter. The FBOMB Nut Butters are made using a proprietary cold-grind process that creates a creamy texture with a few small chunks. These pouches are perfect to throw in my bag and eat anywhere.
The FBOMB Oils are 100% pure, fresh, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan and minimally processed and come in three varieties: Avocado Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, the House blend (Coconut, Macadamia and Brazil Nut) and something with the “straight stuff” called MCT oil, which is 60% C8 (Caprylic Acid) and 40% C10 (Capric Acid). The MCT, Coconut or House blend oils are perfect to add to your coffee! And the olive and avocado are a great salad topper!
Both FBOMB Nut Butter and FBOMB oils are made from the highest quality ingredients and all non-GMO verified. The packets are a great high-fat snack, especially now that I am focusing my energy on health and wellness.
I guess you realized by now that this post is not actually about dropping F-bombs or swearing or teaching your kids about respectful language…rather it is to help us adults learn about healthy Fats and how to incorporate them into our diets in the easiest ways possible. And I don’t know if it’s the name FBOMB, or the amazing flavors but I somehow feel like these have become my new guilty pleasure!
Head over to my Instagram account for a prize pack of these amazing packs and start snacking healthy!
