Whats in Your Top Secret Snack Cupboard? My Reveal and a @BareFoods Giveaway! #spon


The other day one of my friends posted a Facebook status message that said her daughter had found her secret snack cupboard. I immediately started drooling and wondering what she keeps in her secret snack cupboard (I ‘m a voyeur like that).

Truthfully, I have my snack cupboard too ” though it’s not so secret because I’ve caught my girls stealing my bite-sized Luna Bars from it. Although the contents of my cupboard varies from day-to-day, and week to week, I thought I would give you a glimpse of what’s inside mine:


Clockwise from top left: Our Compliments BBQ Peanuts, Trader Joe’s Organic White Quinoa,
KIND Bars, Glories Sweet Potato Chips, Unsalted Dry Roasted Almonds, Nuun Cherry Limeade, and Clif Shot Bloks.

I’ve also been known to stock up on:

Luna Bars

Simply Protein Chips


Taste of Nature Bars

Taste of Nature Bars





And Simply Whey Bars


As you can tell, I strongly believe in setting myself up for success. I have a HUGE sweet tooth, and very little self-control, especially when things like expired Oreo’s magically find their way into my house through our very well-meaning neighbours. If you hang around our house often enough you may even hear my daughters complaining that Ã…”Mommy ate ALL the cookies! . That is, unless I have a healthy alternative to turn to.

Enter Mommy’s secret healthy snack cupboard.

Keeping my snack cupboard fully stocked has become much easier, thanks to my friends at Bare Foods. They reached out to me via email and asked me if they could send me their Bestsellers Box as a sample. I never turn down the opportunity for free food, especially healthy food, so of course I said yes!

2 days later this yummy box of healthy goodness showed up at my door:


Oh my! Yum!!


Somersaults!  KIND Bars! Simply Whey!  

Back to Nature Bars! And Simply Protein Chips! 

I tried (and loved) EVERYTHING!!! So much so, that I actually ordered a second box and paid for it with my money! This is something I only ever do when I really, really like something, because let’s face it ” I ‘m a cheap-o.

(Though if I had been really paying attention I would have ordered two boxes so that I would have gotten free shipping).

Bare Foods is a Canadian online store that sells organic, gluten-free and vegan snacks and was started by Daniel Clarke.  Daniel discovered while training for a marathon that eating clean healthy foods prevented him from experiencing GI issues on his long runs.  He tried 100’s of different health food products before settling on the products that he now carries online at Bare Foods.

And guess what?

    I don’t have a snack cupboard but I do have some dry roasted almonds and tasty sweet potato wheat thins… lol…. I know… I don’t have much like others… I have been finding his time around, I am not interested in eating anything that might sway me from the task at hand.

    Nope, no secret snack cupboard. Wish I had the money to have one of those, but we only buy essential items and maybe a box of cookies for the kids as a treat.
