Fruit Newtons: The Perfect Snack for Life On the Go!

by at . Comments

As a blogger, I spend countless hours in front of my computer.  I am also a grandmother with a very active lifestyle.  Blogging gives me the opportunity to spend a significant amount of time with my grandson, keeping him while my daughter and son-in-law work.

Chasing after an 8-month old requires that I stay on top of my game, so I try to eat right and exercise regularly. Whether I'm on the go or busy posting the latest celebrity and entertainment news, keeping my life in balance is always a juggling act. Some days I get so busy I forget to eat. Yes, that's right, FORGET...TO EAT! Me!!! That is not something I ever thought would even be a remote possibility. I'd heard other people say it, but ME? Fuggetaboutit! Only yeah, it does happen to even me.

On those days when I'm on the floor playing with my grandson, trying to get the latest celeb gossip posted in a timely fashion, and pulling on my yoga pants to make it to the next Crossfit class, Newtons make a great snack option. (Okay, who am I kidding? I actually pretty much live in yoga pants. Don't judge. I'm a busy gal.) And while I still enjoy the Classic Fig Newtons I ate as a kid, Nabisco has added a whole array of options such as 100% Whole Grain Fig Newtons, Fat Free Fig Newtons and Fig Minis. Figs not your thing? Nabisco has added several new flavors of heavenly little bites of cakey fruity goodness. How about Strawberry Newtons, Strawberry Minis or Raspberry Newtons? Yummm!

And if that wasn't enough, Nabisco has even added a line of CRISPY fruit cookies. Fruit Thins are crispy cookies with real fruit with flavors like Cherry Vanilla, Cranberry Citrus Oat, Chocolate Raspberry, Fig and Honey, and my own personal favorite, Blueberry Brown Sugar.

And if THAT wasn't enough, how about Baked Apple & Cinnamon or Mixed Berry Fruit Crisps for only 110 calories? Now that's my kind of snack!

Oops, gotta run! Nolan just woke up from his nap, and all of this writing has made me hungry. Good thing I have some Newtons on hand!
