Throughout my life, I’ve been focused on my health and fitness. Back when I was in high school & college, I used to play sports. I was on the tennis team for many years and I used to play basketball with my friends on the weekends. Now with two young kids at home, I don’t really have the same amount of time to play sports regularly! However, I still try to stay fit by being active! I typically hit the gym a few days a week and I usually meet a friend there for a group aerobics class! This friend has just recently embarked on a mission to improve her fitness level and I’m always striving to maintain my fitness level. So we definitely keep each other accountable with our fitness goals! Since she was feeling a little unmotivated last week, I decided to prepare for her a little Fitness Motivation Basket! I filled this little gift basket with a few essential items that I think are key to staying fit, along with the delicious goodnessknows® snack squares! These snack squares, which are a tasty combination of real fruit, dark chocolate and whole nuts, are a perfect reminder to her (and myself) that we need to stop and enjoy the little things in life!

I’ve always believed that simple changes can make a big impact in my overall fitness level. In addition to going to the gym a few days a week, I try to bring the kids to the park for a few hours every couple of days. I get to run around with them and they have fun playing… it’s a win-win! Also, I try to park farther from stores, so I’m forced to walk more everyday. Furthermore, I try to make smart food choices, especially when eating outside. These are some simple ways that I’ve found to make a positive impact in my health. And so to show my friend that simple changes can make a positive impact in her health, I made her this Fitness Motivation Basket!

Here’s a peek at the basket I gave her!

How did my Fitness Motivation Basket come together? Well, last weekend, I was in Sam’s Club to pick up some household essentials and they were sampling some of these goodnessknows® snack squares!

So I decided to try one of these snack squares and I was impressed! They are a delectable combination of real fruit, dark chocolate and whole nuts! And these little squares come in adorable bite-size portions so they’re totally convenient while on-the-go! I also love that they are free of artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners and they’re only 150 calories! I just knew that my workout buddy would love these snacks and I needed to include them in my basket! These snack squares are a delicious reminder to enjoy the little things in life!

These snack squares definitely elevate my basket from “goodness to greatness”! Each of the packs contains 4 delicious snack squares that are made with tangy sweet cranberries, roasted almonds, and dark chocolate. The dark chocolate comes from hand-selected cocoa beans, which are processed in such a way that more of the phytonutrients are retained in the final product! The goodness of cocoa is celebrated in every bite!
