3 Healthy On The Go Snacks!




Lately, I’ve been feeling like that’s an impossible task.

The past few months have been a complete whirlwind with the production & post of Tacompton. Life’s been just go, go, go. And because of that, there have been consequences. Like me countlessly dropping things, multiple times locking myself out of my house, spills, mishaps, constantly late, text message errors, spelling errors…Yes, I’ve been hustling and getting things done, but on the tail end of that has been me… a total HOT MESS.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering what Shine Organics, has to do with me being a HOT MESS. And to be honest I wasn’t sure at first either. But then I realized they have literally been my saving grace over the last week! Not only does the Calm Shine Organics literally calm me, it provides me with all the nutrients I need in between my crazy moments.

Little did I know when I picked up these guys at Target this past Saturday that they would keep me from being HANGRY, calm me when I locked myself out of my apartment & the perfect replacement at work when my frozen grapes had gone bad.

I’m sure there’s a proper way to blog about life… I, of course, have no idea how that works…. so I’m just gonna start off with the incidents of this past weekend and relay how Shine Organics saved me time and time again.

You see I love the entertainment industry, but the hours can be grueling and it can leave very little personal time. So I truly savor my weekends. ME time has never rung so true. And when I say ME time, I truly just means working out & grocery shopping at like the 10 places I need to go because I’m a weirdo with a whole bunch of dietary needs.


But this weekend I knew I was gonna do something CRAZY!! I was adding Target to my to-do list. Why?

Well because I missed it. I hadn’t been there in ages & I knew I wanted to wander about. Relax a moment. Probably find something I  didn’t need, but would convince myself otherwise (side note: I did… definitely bought a new dress hehe). Target’s the best place and has all the greatest things.

Well, I don’t know if you’re aware, but it’s officially OCTOBER. AKA Halloween time & one thing that is very tempting at Target is the Candy Aisle. Cue Exhibit A to the LEFT!!!

Now I have self-control, I do. I swear. And I’m not just trying to prove it to you. But Halloween & just the holidays, in general, can leave me extra snacky. Is snacky a word? It is now.


Anyways, luckily, as I began to wander through the aisle of beautiful candy I saw Shine Organics from across the way. Cue SAVING GRACE #1.

There they were just waiting for me. Much more exciting than the rest of the things in the applesauce aisle (not that I don’t love applesauce), however seeing as I’ve been trying to live a healthier lifestyle and I was getting on the hangry side from running errands all day I decided it was probably best to indulge in  Shine Organics over candy 😛

So there I was standing between the candy aisle and fruit with three flavors in my hands. One didn’t seem like enough, three for a first try seemed like too much though. So I went with their flavors, Purity & Calm! They both sounded so appealing and the packaging just got to me, especially Calm.

Shine Organics is all about Superfoods & to LIVE VIBRANTLY. #LOVETHAT

With a mission:

We needed bolder flavor and better nutrition from our snacks. Shine Organics was created to make superfoods more accessible. At home or on the go, feed yourself nature’s best — real fruits and vegetables, chia seeds, and nutritious superfoods. Each pouch features a delicious harmony of ingredients, blended to support your entire wellbeing and nourish a healthy lifestyle. Shine from the inside out.

The wonderful thing about these guys is the fact that they don’t need to be refrigerated nor do you need any utensils. It’s like a smoothie pack to go that’s pure, organic, gluten free, dairy free, kosher & vegan. Between 90 to 130 calories & no added sugars, I can honestly say I’ve added these to my daily diet especially when in a crunch. I’ve actually started leaving a few in my car for those days when life doesn’t go according to plan.

Don’t let life get you down when things don’t go as planned! LIVE VIBRANTLY!!!
