Since I’ve started this fitness challenge, I’ve begun sprouting long floppy ears and a little white cotton tail. I hop around and hide in watering cans and get my jacket buttons stuck on things. OK, I’m slightly exaggerating. Slightly.
I have eaten more vegetables and fruits in the past two weeks than I have maybe in my entire life. I have spinach and mango smoothies for breakfast, vegetables wrapped in lettuce for lunch, and a salad for dinner. I hate protein. I realize how ridiculous I sound by saying that, but it makes me fat. Before you get preachy, everyone’s bodies are different, and since I’m not training for the Mr. Universe competition, I just have no need for that much protein. I throw in a turkey burger or some grilled chicken on my salad here and there, but I’m mostly on the fruit and veggie diet. Hence the floppy ears and the tail.
Luckily, I was introduced to a cool product called Peaceful Fruits. These are snacks created and manufactured by a returned Peace Corps volunteer. He “started Peaceful Fruits to help the people of the Amazon Rainforest improve their standard of living without sacrificing their way of life.”
So it’s a socially good snack that is good for you. The snacks are vegan/paleo friendly, gluten free, non-GMO, ethical trade, and 100% organic. In fact in the apple snack, there are only four ingredients; organic acai, organic apple, organic pear, and lemon juice.
Right now, the snacks come in two flavors-apple and pineapple. and have completely compostable packaging. They come in packages of 12 for $15.
Visit their website at www.peacefulfruits.com. You can also check them out on social media.
