You know how Popeye used to save the day simply by popping open a can of spinach? Some days, I wish I had a secret on-the-go snack like that. I’d carry a can of spinach in my purse if I knew it would work, but eating a can of spinach while shopping at the mall is kind of weird – plus I don’t really like spinach.

So what’s a tired, overworked mom have to do in order to become SUPER MOM? I have to find a high protein snack – preferably something portable and on-the-go – and it has to be something that gives me energy. During a recent trip to Walmart, I found my version of Popeye’s spinach.

I’ve been experimenting with different protein bars and snack bars for a while now, but the one I’ve finally settled on as my secret SUPER MOM snack is Energy Life Choice Bars. They’re only available at Walmart, and you’ll find them in the cereal aisle (not near the pharmacy with the weight loss bars).

Life Choice Bars really make it easy for a sometimes tired mom like me to get the nutrition I need in in a snack that’s nutritious AND easy to take with you wherever you go. They’re also available in four types:

ENERGY (aka “SUPER MOM”) – A balanced blend of protein, carbs and whole grain oats to help give you the energy you need.

WELLNESS – Complete with vitamins and minerals to provide nutrition you can feel good about.

PROTEIN – An excellent source of protein to help support muscle recovery after your workout.

MEAL BAR – Under 200 calories each, each bar helps satisfy hunger with a good mix of fiber and protein.


Like I said, I need Popeye-style energy on a regular basis, so I grabbed a box of the Energy bars in Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip flavor (they’ve also got them in Chocolate Fudge Brownie). While I was there, I got a box of the Wellness Life Choice bars (Fudge Graham!) and Protein Life Choice bars (Peanut Butter Extreme!).

Now, wherever I am and wherever I go, I’ve got a quick snack (or a quick breakfast) that’s ready to give me the energy I need to tackle my day and anything that comes my way!
