Easy and Healthy Snacking at Home thanks to #GoldEmblem Abound and @CVS_Extra

If you follow my blog regularly, you know that we’re a pretty big swim family. The boys swim 3-4 days a week throughout the year, with the exception of a spring and summer break for a couple of weeks (which we’re in right now!). I love many things about swimming – I love that they’re meeting friends, I love that all the boys do something together, I love that it really does bring our family together and (most of all) I love that it’s great exercise for my sons. I’m big into teaching them to live a healthy lifestyle, so it’s important to me that they’re doing regular exercise and keeping their bodies healthy and strong.

I’m also big on healthy eating.

I try really hard to fill my cabinets and cupboard with snacks that are delicious, but also healthy. Snack time in our house is a regular thing. It’s funny, my house has become the designated playdate house since we have so many kids and it’s fun for me to be able to entertain and serve some healthy snacks for my sons and their friends.

I’m ALWAYS on the hunt for some snacks to bring into my house and for back to school time, so I was VERY excited to see that CVS/pharmacy has a new line of snacks in their Gold Emblem line called abound.

Free of artificial preservatives and flavors, it’s a wonderful option for parents looking to fill snack time with some delicious options. They combine nutritious ingredients with great taste in every product — so you can have the best of both worlds in every bite. They also contain zero trans fat.

I tried out the popcorn with my sons yesterday and they LOVED it! Yesterday is POURED, it was a total rain day… so I let the boys have a full movie day at home. The popcorn was OUT OF THIS WORLD! I opened the bag of Heavenly Light Popcorn for them to eat while watching Lord of the Rings!

We feel like we’re drifting on a cloud every time we indulge in a handful of our delightful Ultra-Light Heavenly Light Popcorn. It’s abundantly airy and fluffy there’s nothing artificial weighing it down because all we use is a touch of oil for popping and a hint of sea salt for flavor. If the heavens floated down their favorite guilt-free snack, this would be it.

The boys loved it! You normally don’t see these two guys sharing a bowl of anything! 🙂

I’m excited to know that I can add this into my lunch routine for the boys for back to school time! It’s a healthy option and everyone loves it. Win-win for me!

Also… don’t forget!! Make sure you visit the ExtraCare Coupon Center when you first head into your CVS/pharmacy for a visit! You’ll get your coupons and see what you can get some extra deals on! My sons call it the magic machine!
