Skinnygirl Tips for a Healthy Holiday

During the holidays, food temptation lurks around every corner - whether its a second (...third?) slice of your grandma's famous apple pie, or perhaps a sinfully delicious chocolate cake pop that took home 3rd place in a recent office bake-off (baked by yours truly, thank you very much!). Luckily, our gals over at Skinnygirl have our backs and are providing us with filling, delicious, HEALTHY snacks to help us make smart food choices throughout the holiday season...and beyond!


We have been fans of Skinnygirl ever since we first saw sassy Bethenny firing away at her castmates on The Real Housewives of New York, and we've always admired her entrepreneurial spirit and everlasting spunk. She revolutionized the cocktail game, so it comes as no surprise that she's now worked out a tasty and smart way for a girl to get her snack on. One of the best ways to make healthy choices during the holidays is to be prepared by always having a healthy snack supply at the ready - thanks to Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars, all you need to do is reach into your purse (instead of the vending machine) for the burst of fuel and energy that you're craving midday.


Luckily for us, the Skinnygirl team has certainly not skimped on taste, as the bars are currently available in three yummy flavors: Banana Oatmeal Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter with Sea Salt, and Dark Chocolate Pretzel. Personally, I appreciate the fact that the word "chocolate" is a key player in ALL of the bars!


In addition to providing their own yummy bars, Skinnygirl also has you covered to address any cravings that randomly pop up. Skinnygirl Snack Swap is a handy online tool that allows you to enter the not-so-good foods that you're currently lusting after, and then provides you with healthier alternatives that will still satisfy your yearnings. It's such a fun, useful site to visit when you're about to swing by your corner bodega for some chips, since you can substitute that for an equally satisfying yet much healthier (and cheaper!) alternative from your apartment instead!


I recently tested the Skinnygirl Snack Swap for two of my biggest cravings: soft pretzels, and chocolate cake. The swaps suggested all sounded incredibly delish: some quinoa pizza bites to appease my salty side, and creamy hot cocoa to keep me warm on a cold winter night. For both the soft pretzel and chocolate cake, Skinnygirl's Dark Chocolate Pretzel tasty nutrition bar was recommended as a swap - looks like I've found my new go-to flavor!


After popping a few of these bars into my purse and turning to them during moments of need, I was truly impressed by the fullness of their flavors and how they easily satisfied my hunger pains. During the holidays, it's important to stick with a healthy eating routine to avoid overindulgence, and one of the best ways to do that is to always be prepared with smart, satisfying snacks - these Skinnygirl bars definitely fit the bill, which is why they are now a new staple of my work bag!


Now, it's your turn to try these snacks!


Skinnygirl is giving one of our TSN readers a month's supply of these tasty nutrition bars - that's 36 bars in total (12 of each of the 3 flavors, a $65.97 value!). The giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, December 17th, and is open to U.S. residents only.

How do you make healthy choices during the holidays?
