Tastykake- The Best Summer Snacking

What is your plan for summer? We have a full six weeks of summer classes and some fun family visiting scheduled in between. Since we spent so much time over the past year and a half at home, we want to make sure that all of our adventures out are as safe as possible. We have cut back drastically on social dining and try to bring our snacks and stuff like that with us from home to avoid the extra stops. It's been working pretty good. If you are packing a school lunch, working at the desk, going on a road trip, or anything in between, Tastykake has you covered for all sweet snacking.

One awesome thing about bringing a snack with us is we can plan ahead. Planning ahead definitely has its perks. Finding snacks on sale, stocking up when possible, and having what you want instead of what the vending machine has to offer are all great in my book!

We just got an awesome selection from Tastykake and I have to say, this is the perfect snack kit for everything! Whether a day trip out of town, a cross country trip to gramas house, a day at summer class, or in my case a long day at the office, Tastykake has our backs for sure!.

Tastykake Mini Powder Sugar Donuts

Tastykake Mini Powder Sugar Donuts are perfect for breakfast on the go. This goes back decades for me. When we were kids, it was the only snack my little sister would have. We have so many pictures that her whole face (and sometimes hair) were covered in powdered sugar from sneaking the donuts. It turned into a family tradition, every road trip had a bag of powder sugar mini donuts to start out the trip. They are easy to hold, easy to share (if you want to), and easy to store for later. My mom would hand the bag to the back seat and we were self-sufficient professional snackers. We would give the bag back, she folded down the top, pushed in the built-in tabs, and saved the rest for us until later. They are delicious! It was only right to start out my little family road trips the same way.

The Mini donuts are available in a few different flavors and are a go-to for me year-round. I don't need a road trip to love these little guys. I actually have a few single packs of the Crunch flavor stashed in my desk. The only reason I am confessing now is that I will have them gone by the time this post goes live and I will have a new stash place mapped out :)

Tastykake Kandy Kakes

Kandy Kakes is a pleasure of textures and flavors. Want a cake snack but not just any cake? You have to try these little delights. It's a peanut butter-filled cake coated in a chocolate layer cake snack? Something with a little bit of filling in it but not overloaded? These are the perfect amount of cake, peanut butter, and chocolate in every bite. They are twin-packed and sealed for super convenient snacking. They are just the right size to throw in a lunch box for dessert or have as a solo snack. 

Chocolate Juniors

The Chocolate Juniors are a delicious double-layer of vanilla yellow cake with a layer of chocolate icing on each layer, just like mom and grama used to make. YUM! It's been being proudly served since 1914! Over 100 years of Chocolate Juniors. I love the size of the Juniors. They are just like going into the kitchen and cutting a hunk of cake. If you like cake, you will love these.

Not only does Tastykake have great-tasting snacks, but they also do amazing things for people. They support the USO and are inviting all of us to join in the fun.

  2. Are You Sure You're Getting Enough Physical Activity? 5 Things to Add to Your Routine

    Knowing whether you are getting enough physical activity in a day is easy! I've put together a short checklist of what you need below:
    *Get at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity (brisk walking/jogging) for 30 minutes a day, 5 days/week.
    *Get at least 2 days/week of strength training for all major muscle groups.
    *If you work at a desk, get up and move around for 10 minutes every hour.
    *Aim to hit at least 10,000 steps a day (about an hour of movement), especially if you have a desk job.
    *Now, I completely understand how difficult it can be during times like these to get the physical activity that your body needs to thrive... So, I've put together some resources to support you right now at home!
    1. Add this whole body strength workout to your routine 2-3x per week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDf9y5Txhqg
    2. Add this whole body stretch to your routine 2-3x per week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ii_TsB9Rgx4
    3. Take your exercise outdoors. Add one of these 5 Great Hikes in the Lower Mainland OR one of these 10 Best Runs in Vancouver to your weekly routine.
    4. Sign up for some virtual classes and support local fitness studios. We highly recommend YYoga and TurF, Cmmn Grnd for some killer online classes!
    5. Get some physiotherapy and exercise prescription to help you stay in top physical form. Check out Vancouver Physiotherapy Hub to book your appointment. We offer both in-person and virtual appointments.
