I don’t mean to cause mass panic, but did you know there are only 6 weekends between now and Christmas?! To me, as the old song goes, it is the most wonderful time of the year – but it can also be one of the most stressful, and as I have seen with many of my clients, when stress sets in then healthy eating habits can be one of the first things to slip. Stress can make our bodies crave sugar and caffeine, which in turn makes us crave more sugar and caffeine and actually adds to the stress on our immune system which is already taking a hit with panic present buying, torturous family visits and drunken office parties. So I’m delighted to have teamed up with Kind Snacks to offer one lucky reader a WHOLE MONTH of Kind Bars to ensure that they have a healthy, nutritious snack to hand for every single day in December! Read more to find out how you can win the ultimate healthy helping hand just in time for Christmas.
Kind believe that if you can’t pronounce an ingredient, it shouldn’t go in your body – an ethos which I am firmly in agreement with! Their bars are gluten and dairy free, contain all natural ingredients (nuts, spices, honey etc) and have 40% less sugar per 100g than similar snack bars. That’s why I always keep them in my gym bag for on the go fuel – they’re perfect pre or post workout, or just for a mid-afternoon pick me up between clients.
Having one of these in your handbag, gym bag or desk drawer is the perfect solution over the festive season to keep you fuelled, and also help you fend off the many, many less than healthy snacks that are all around us during December. Who needs a mince pie when you could enjoy a Caramel, Sea Salt and Almond or Dark Chocolate and Cherry Cashew Bar?
If you want to WIN a whole month’s supply of Kind Bars to ensure you give your body the Kindest December possible, then all you need to do is email: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject header “I want to Be Kind this Christmas” and I’ll pick one lucky winner at random on Friday 24th November (to ensure they have their bars ready to go on December 1st!). Entries close at midnight on Thursday 23rd November and this competition is open to UK residents only.
Good Luck and remember – if you can be anything this December – then be Kind!
