Elevate Your Snacking with barkTHINS®.
It is safe to say that our family is a family of foodies. While we love comfort food, having balanced meals and snacks on hand is important to us. One thing we always have in the house is dark chocolate, especially when a sweet tooth strikes. For those times, we have barkTHINS to help us elevate our snacking, even when we are on-the-go or just winding down at home.
Life with two very active girls and being a small business owner who works from home can get really busy! On a regular day, it’s quite the task to get my meals in. That’s why I prefer small meals and plenty of snacks in between.
Give Me That Chocolate!
I am blessed to be able to do something I am incredibly passionate about and do all from the comfort of my home. My daily tasks involve creating content, taking pictures, editing and writing to just name a few. All while listening to funky beats, dancing around in my slippers and having the opportunity to just be creative.
While I start off high-energy, that afternoon lull hits and I’m always grateful when Hubs walks into my office with a snack. He knows me well because he knows I adore dark chocolate and fruit. It gives me that pick-me-up that I need mid-afternoon and it gives me an excuse to stop and enjoy the moment. Once we discovered barkTHINS, we were hooked. Simply because of the quality ingredients and delicious taste. It’s perfect for that sweetness you crave throughout the day.
When I get the chance, I love writing in my journal. It’s those quiet moments where I can reflect and write down my thoughts and goals. It is when I often get my best ideas and self-relevations. It’s what keeps me inspired and keeps the fire lit. Sometimes, I enjoy my little “me” time with a hint of sweetness. The barkTHINS Coconut always hits the spot because of the texture and the tropical flavour of the coconut.
I love that barkTHINS come in different flavours and are packed with delicious ingredients like coconut, almonds, pumpkin seeds and pretzels. It doesn’t hurt that it’s certified fair-trade chocolate and made with non-GMO ingredients without artificial colours or flavours. When you bite into the high quality, velvety dark chocolate–everything is kosher. No, really, they’re actually kosher and that is amazing.
Living the Vida Loca!
Well, not so much. During the weekends, we tend to live the “wild” life by getting the house in order, catching up on laundry and household chores. When we aren’t on our one of our travel adventures, we enjoy being homebodies. There really is no place like home and sometimes doing nothing at all are the best plans to have.
Winding down for us is watching a good movie with the kids, having friends or family over for a good meal and just taking the time to do the things we don’t get to during the week.
Sunday mornings, Darasak surprises me and he will prepare a tray of all my favourite things for me to enjoy in bed. Packed with my journal and pen, books that I’ve been meaning to read (which I love and don’t get a chance to read as often as I’d like,) my favourite candle for some aromatherapy and a cup of black coffee. Throw in a bouquet of fresh flowers and a selection of sweet and salty barkTHINS and I’m in heaven.
That my friends, is #snackingelevated.
The girls love dark chocolate too so they enjoy dipping into our stash. I often pack little baggies of them for the girls for after their extracurriculars! It’s always a sweet surprise and a much-welcomed one to boot.
