My Life on (and off) the Guest List

Weekend Snack Attack

During the week, I’m either attending so many events or I’m so busy writing, I never really have time to eat so during the weekend I find myself sometimes gorging on the things in my fridge because I either: 1 – finally have time to eat or 2 – have to eat them before they spoil. Either way, it’s not the best thing for me to do. I was introduced to a few brands at one Editor’s Showcase that has helped me snack healthy while I’m on the go and while I’m busy writing for hours.


Crunchies are all-natural, kosher, vegan, gluten-free, freeze-dried fruits and vegetables with no additives of any kind. I like to call these my multi-purpose snacks because you can enjoy them in so many different ways. You can eat them right out of the bag, top your cereal, hot oatmeal or ice cream with it or mix it up with your smoothies. Any way you enjoy them they’re quite delicious. My favorites are the Mango, Strawberries, and Pineapple but they have some great new flavors like Pear, Mixed Fruit, Spiced Corn, BBQ Corn, etc.

Jamba Juice All Natural Smoothies

Speaking of smoothies, nothing beats the refreshingly delicious taste of Jamba Juice’s At-Home Smoothie Kits. Packed with all-natural chunks of fruits and yogurt, these perfect summer fat-free smoothie kits includes a healthy antioxidant boost, one full serving of fruit and 100% daily value of vitamin C. My go to flavor has been the Mango-a-go-go but there’s a new flavor called Caribbean passion I’m dying to try.

 Fiber One 90-Calorie Snacks

90 calories of pure decadence. Fiber One saved my life during Fashion Week. These delicious brownies offer 20% of the daily value of Fiber and 5 grams of Fiber per serving. It tastes amazing warm and with soy ice cream. Look for Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies: Chocolate Chip Cookie flavor and Fiber One Chewy bars – Chocolate or Strawberry PB&J – in supermarket granola bar aisles nationwide.

The Laughing Cow Smooth Sensations™ Cream Cheese Spread

The Laughing Cow has seen me through some great times; I’ve snacking on them from childhood until now and have enjoyed every new product they’ve launched. The newest products, Smooth Sensations™ Cream Cheese Spread, are absolutely delicious and they’re great not only on crackers, French or Italian breads, they are a great addition to celery or carrot sticks and apples or pear slices. With only 45 calories in each 1/3 less fat wedge, they’re ready to enjoy anytime.

Turkey Pepperoni 

Believe it or not, I was not a fan of pepperoni until I sampled this one from Hormel. It was love at first bite (I only wished I got to taste more then). Pepperoni is no longer just for pizza and no longer comes in pork, those of you who are like me that do not eat pork, you won’t be disappointed with the Turkey Pepperoni. Snack away and snack happy with Hormel.
