Metromint and Popchips

You might be thinking what the heck...metro-what and pop-who?
Just bare with me, if you don't know what I'm talking about.
Are you a stress eater?  Emotional Eater?
I am.
I confess.
When I'm stressed, 
I want to eat EVERYTHING.  
I know some people are just the opposite.  
I wish I was that person, perhaps I would be 3 pounds lighter, instead of 3 pounds heavier today.  
  
So, I can't really control the stress/emotional eating, but I can control what I eat.
Recently, I went and stocked up 
on two snacking live savers...
a couple of my go-to healthy alternatives...
Metromint water.
The flavor in the picture above is cholatemint
pure. simple. mintwater.
No calories, sweetners, or preservatives.
Normally that would mean NO FLAVOR, 
but not in this instance.
When I want something sweet, 
I can just drink a bottle of this
and it totally helps.

When I want something salty or crunch, I go for these...

POPCHIPS.
They're amazing.
They remind me of Munchos.
Heavenly.
Not fried.  Not baked.  Popped.

I find my Popchips at Target or Whole Foods 
and I buy my Metromint water at Akin's.  
If you have a Sprout's, they sell these products as well.  
(Both brands have store locators on their websites.)

What's your favorite healthy snack?

I swear I was not paid to write this blog post, but if anyone *achem* like important Popchip people or the makers of Metromint *achem* would like to give me free samples, I would NOT turn them down.

I was JUST thinking that I need to find some healthy snacks because I have none. Those popchips look good...I'll have to look for those.

I hadn't heard of Metromint -sounds pretty good/interesting. I've heard of Popchips but,hadn't ate them -I do love Munchos though so, maybe I'll have to try them sometime. That reminds me I was craving Munchos awhile back and my husband had no clue what I was talking about-I finally found some to show him ;)
Oh gosh -I admit to being an emotional eater sometime and I don't always snack healthy -lately it's chocolate-Dove or Choxie. I do drink water a lot though. Oh and I do love to eat red bell peppers -If I'm cooking something with them I'll buy and extra just to eat by itself :)

I need to find these things!! I'm a total stress eater....and the Pop Tarts in my pantry keep disappearing.

Hmmmm, I haven't heard of either of these. I'll have to see if anyplace has them around here. My favorite healthy snack right now is chocolate rice cakes. Takes that chocolate craving off quickly.

I rally don't know if I can do mint flavored H2O. Hmmmm....

But I LOVE PopChips. Pita Chips are my fav - Stacy's Sea Salt. Unfortunately, I can't keep them in the house b/c I can eat the whole bag in one sitting....and that defeats the purpose of a HEALTHY snack.

I only drink flavored water but chocolate mint...I'm not feeling that so I'll just take our word for it. Pop-Chips, I've never seen them, I'll keep my eye out for them on my next Target run.

I too love the Metromint water alot... I haven't had the Popchips though.
Healthy snack? HA! Not here girl.
I am going to admit something to you though... I ate a WHOLE bag (big family size bag) of Natural white cheddar Cheetos yesterday. Not in one sitting but throughout the day. I could not believe it when I stuck my hand in the bag last night and they were all gone. I looked at my hubby and said, "Dang, I ate the whole bag, all by myself today!" He thought it was funny. Needless to say, I did not weigh myself. But I did buy another bag at the store today!!!
They don't have any preservatives, artificial flavors or colorings and they are made from organic corn-MAN they are good!!!

Hope you are having a good week!
Love,
me
