New Items: Kodiak Cakes Chewy Crunchy Granola

Afternoon snack cravings are a feeling we all know too well and don’t always know what to do with. You’ve already eaten lunch, but it seems like forever until dinner —so you know you need something to eat in-between. The only problem is, nothing sounds satisfying. Finding smart snacks to satisfy your cravings can be difficult sometimes, but luckily you don’t have to sacrifice great taste for healthier options

Kodiak is here to make it easier, with their NEW Chewy and Crunchy Granola Bars. Made with 100% whole grain ingredients, protein and fiber to help satisfy your hunger and keep you full until dinnertime. Kodiak Chewy bars offer 7 grams of protein per serving, and if crunchy is your preference you can get 10 grams of protein per serving.

Two nutritional components to look for when it comes to smart snacking are protein and whole grains. Protein helps our bodies build and repair muscle tissue and helps you feel fuller, longer. This is partly because protein reduces your body’s level of the hunger hormone, ghrelin, and boosts levels ofpeptide YY, a hormone that makes you feel full.

Whole grains are important because they contain all three parts of a grain: the bran, endosperm, and the germ. Among the many nutritional benefits of eating a whole grain snack is increased amounts of fiber. Fiber is not only important for keeping your digestive system clean but can also help increase that full, satisfying feeling you want from eating a snack. These Kodiak bars offer up a chewy, or crunchy, delicious and balanced option when it comes to snacks for hungry folks of all ages.
