Yomms: The Smart Snack Drawer Solution


Today’s smart snacking post is made possible through our sponsor Yomms.

Snacking often gets shunned but it can actually be a great way to fuel your life and get nutrients in during the day (think vitamins and fiber).  Mindless snacking and overindulging aren’t the right approach but with a little strategy you CAN snack smart. Skip the vending machine and bring joy back to the idea of snacking with Yomms. 

Long workdays often mean I don’t have a designated shopping day for groceries and it’s common to receive a “Can you stop to pick up — on your way home?’ text. This week was no different. It occurred to me as I was walking the aisle of Brookshire’s after work- but still long before I’d be home for dinner- how hungry I really was. Doing a quick time estimate of how long it would take me to get through the check-out line, drive home, and cook dinner, it still added up to at least another hour before we’d eat. I’d been so cautious not to fill up on mindless calories during the workday but I had been so busy, I was also skipping meals. I needed to look for a solution that would provide energy, keep me alert, and bring a little joy to the workday.  

This is when I added Yomms to my cart. Yomms is a convenient and tasty snack that is easy to take along to the office. It was also convenient for my budget since Brookshire’s had a BOGO Free, on the  4 oz bags (10/9-10/15). I picked up two bags of my favorite and another to share with my family. Snacks are for sharing but they never last long with two teenagers and their friends at home.

Balancing Work Life with Yomms : The Smart Snack Drawer Solution

I’ve worked so diligently on areas of my health this year. I was concerned about sabotaging my progress with snacks at work. I knew my busy schedule would sometimes get in the way of routine so I had to  be intentional with the snacks I was consuming. Instead of heading to the vending machine between meetings, I considered the option of stocking a snack drawer with smart options instead. 

There are a few functional benefits to consider when stocking your office snack drawer:

  • Will this item give me energy? 

Yomms is a plant protein and has plenty of fiber & ‘good’ unsaturated fats

  • Does it provide nutrients? 

Yomms has antioxidant vitamins, minerals, & phytonutrients

  • Is it convenient? 

Yomms comes in a variety of flavors (Coco Twist, Dark Chocolate w/ Sea Salt, Milk Chocolate, Sea Salted & more) and is packaged to take on the go. 

When you’re always on the go, you’ve got to be easygoing

Speaking of being on the go… Our teenagers always keep us on the go. Sometimes it seems like they never slow down. Except for snacks. They still stop and light up if I say I have a snack to share. Sometimes choosing the snack can be a conflict because we have several different eating styles under one roof. One of the greatest parts about stocking up on Yomms is that it’s a plant protein the whole family can share – vegetarians and non-vegetarians. We’ll often tell each other “food is fuel” as a reminder to snack smart but our choices can also bring a moment of delight to the day. It’s important to me to model this value for them.
