When’s the last time you took some time for yourself? Honestly..I’m trying to rack my brain to figure out the answer for myself! I’ll share in this post when it comes to me but in the meantime, let’s explore the importance of self care what activities you can incorporate in your day to day life to practice self care.

I was sent this box for review purposes.
Just by a first glance – I was very impressed with the contents of my box!
Each box comes with a card listing the items included
The back side of the card has a full body energizer workout! I’ll definitely try to do this every morning!
Onto the products
Nogii Whey & Quinoa Protein Powder in Cocoa Chocolate – 0.74 oz $1.85 Nogii Whey & Quinoa Protein Powder in Vanilla Bean – 0.74 oz $1.85 Level Life Caramel Chocolate Peanut Protein Snack Bar – Single Bar $1.17 2 SunButter Creamy Sunflower Seed Spread – 1.1 oz each – 0.41 each
I’ve been in search of a protein powder but have no idea which brand to go with! I’m glad Fit Snack sent two different flavors so I try them both! Each packet contains 10 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber – which is half a serving according to the information card. There are no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or added colors. I’m thinking of making a smoothie with one of the samples to make it taste better – I remember not liking the taste of Vanilla Bean protein shakes from my last encounter!
This probably sounds silly but I got super excited when I saw the protein snack bar! As a person who gets hungry every 3-4 hours, I’m always in search of bars that will keep me full long enough until classes are over. Not only does this bar sound delicious, it’s gluten free, and designed to support healthy blood sugar and fight hunger! Each bar contains 11 grams of protein, 4 grams of sugar, and 140 calories – not sure how this rates in the “fit/healthy” world but this sounds very appealing to me considering the “healthy” bars I’ve been eating 6-7 grams of protein and more than 10 grams of sugar.
I’m not a huge fan of peanut butter/almond butter but I’ve never tried sunflower seed spread before – it’s peanut free and gluten free! The information card says SunButter is a great alternative to peanut butter because it contains 1/3 less saturated fat, is higher in fiber, vitamin E, zinc, iron, and potassium! I’ll definitely give this a shot!
Compete Energy Bites in Chocolate – FULL SIZE! $4.49 Lenny & Larry’s The Complete Cookie in Lemon Poppy Seed – 1 cookie $2.08 Oven Baked Organics Gluten Free Pancake Mix – 6.91 oz $5.00
I literally ripped open the box of chocolate energy bites right after taking these photos. I had no ideas energy supplements like these exist! These bites taste delicious and the warning label says you shouldn’t eat more than 3 in a day – thank god I read that because I was ready to devour all 6 in less than 5 minutes. Each bite comes 135 mg of caffeine – which is comparable to 12 oz of premium coffee. I did feel a little jittery and somewhat energized after eating this, which was surprising since caffeine doesn’t really affect me unless I take a huge amount of it. These energy bites come in either chocolate or mocha and I’m really tempted to buy the mocha flavored ones!
I don’t know about you guys but a Lemon Poppy Seed cookie sounds disgusting I think it’s just the idea of poppy seeds. I’m still going to try it and hopefully it tastes better than it sounds! This cookie has 16 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber and is vegan! One cookie has 22 grams of iron so yeah, that’s a huge incentive for me to try this out since I’m anemic! Let me know if you’ve ever had cookies in this flavor – I’d really love to know what you guys think of it!
I feel like I’m saying this about everything in this box but I’m excited for this pancake mix – I’ll be making this for breakfast in the near future! It’s made from organic whole grains and legumes! It’s gluten free, has no artificials anything, no additives, no preservatives, and no fillers. I couldn’t find an exact price on their website, it said 3 packets of their pancake mixes are $15 but there were no specifics on how many ounces each packet consisted, so I’m going to assume each packet contains 6.91 ounces.
Simply 7 Lentil Chips w/ Sea Salt – 0.8 oz $1.00 Simply 7 Quinoa Chips 1/ Sea Salt – 0.8 oz $1.00
Both of these sound pretty good, however, I’m leaning towards the quinoa chips more! These chips have all natural ingredients and they’re all Non-GMO, gluten free, and kosher. The quinoa chips have 7 grams of protein and can I just say how I love their ingredient list is super short with words I can actually pronounce and understand without the help of google.
Fit Snack Veggie Chips – 2.75 oz $?? Fit Snack Raw Almond and Pumpkin Seed Mix – 3 oz $??
It seems like these aren’t sold on their website or anywhere else online so I don’t have a price to list. Again, I’m very excited to try these out, all the other veggie chips I’ve tried in the past have been delicious so I’m sure I’ll like these. I’ve never been the one to eat pumpkin seeds – they’ve never been appealing to me but I’ll definitely give the mix a try. There is no sodium or added sugar in the nut mix and the veggie chips are lower in sodium, free from harmful fats and cholesterol, and have a high source of vitamin A!
The total value of this box is $19.98 – without the two Fit Snack items! I’m sure with the cost of the last two products, the value will be around $24 – the price of a box and shipping but I’m not sure if it would reach the $30 they said on their website.
I’m not upset over the value of the box because it contained 10 different products that I’m SUPER excited to try! Plus, I’m not the type of person who’s going to go out and purchase all of these items – I prefer sampling them first before buying them in full sizes. I also really like how they try to meet their “Perfect 10” checklist with each box! However, I do wish I knew the values of the Fit Snack products so I could compute a more accurate estimate but maybe they’ll sell these on their website in the near future!
I recommend trying out Fit Snack if you’re into trying out healthier options!
They have a contest going on right now where you can win a free Fit Snackbox!
Also, if you use my Fit Snacklink, you will receive a free gym bag when subscribing to any of their plans! ($10 value!)
