Satisfy your Snack Cravings with @MapleLeafFoods Protinis

Maple Leaf Foods ProtinisEverywhere you turn, people are talking about Fat and Carbohydrates. There’s a lot of information out there and it’s hard to stay on top of everything. However, there’s one important component that isn’t talked about as much and it’s vital to a healthy diet and that is Protein.

Protein makes your body stronger, keeps you feeling fuller longer and helps build and repair muscle. There is so much more to it then that but in a nutshell, our bodies cannot make essential amino acids, so we need to get them from our food in order to sustain our muscles and tissues, as well as promote overall growth.

Bottom Line… Your Body Needs Protein.

According to Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention, a female aged 19-70 needs 46 grams of protein a day.

So, when I heard about the complete protein snack, Protinis from Maple Leaf Foods, I knew that I needed to give them a try. With 8 different flavours to choose from and at least 11g of protein in each snack (two-pack), there’s something for everyone.

As usual, we didn’t make it out of the store before The Kids were hungry. For once, I was able to offer them a healthy and complete snack and they didn’t even leave one bit of the Roasted Chicken with mild salsa.

When we got home, The Kids were still hungry so I offered them the chicken and cranberry snack. Even though they’d never had cranberries before, they dove right in. They commented on how the cranberries tasted like raisins and then they were gone. The cranberries that is. For my dietary requirements (I’m hypoglycemic), I’ll choose the mango or apple options next time as the sugar content is a lot lower.

Even though it’s being sold as a snack, you can also add it to your meals. This week, while making pizza, I was short on time and food so I put a container of the roasted chicken mild salsa and it really gave the pizza what it needed; taste and protein!

And last but not least, the price. As a single income family, we watch where our money goes. You can’t put a monetary value on teaching your kids the long-term value of making healthy choices and for me, having snacks that keep my sugar levels under control is a must. But, if you could put a value on it, after using your $2 off coupon, you too could be snacking and supplementing your families pizza dinner for 75 cents. 75 cents!And to sweeten the deal even further, Maple Leaf Foods wants one of you to try Protinis for FREE by entering our giveaway.

    I can relate most to the woman who cannot eat spinach alone. A salad is much more satisfying with some protein in it.

  3. Jeff Skidmore

    Well since I’m a man, can’t really relate to any of them, but if I have to choose it would be the business woman!

  4. Brianne Hager

    Probably the third woman. I can’t have a salad without protein or I’m hungry again in five minutes.

  5. Cheryl Grandy

    I relate best to the first woman – suddenly realizing there’s something else on the schedule I need to rush to.

  6. KD

    I don’t really relate to any of them now, but I used to relate to the business woman before kids.

  7. Andrea Amy

    I can’t really relate to any of them, but i guess the busy mom who forgot soccer would be the closest for me 🙂

  8. Jennifer P.

    I can most relate to the mom just realizing that soccer practice is today, except in my case it’s swimming practice.

  9. Debbie S.

    I can relate to the mom who is always looking for a snack on the run. I am always looking for something easy, quick and nutritious to take as a snack for my grandson. I am the one who takes him to a lot of his activities.

      Dear Amy,

      Clearly my photography skills don’t do the chicken justice 🙂 It’s real chicken breast, not pressed and tastes great. Check it out in the store and see if it looks better 😉 Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
