Fiber One 90 Calorie Chewy Bars

As a pregnant mother of twins and an almost 2 year old, it's amazing how fast (and for how long) I can forget to eat. When I do remember, it is either so late that I am about to pass out from starvation or I am nowhere close to my house, or my refrigerator.

When I was given the opportunity to review Fiber ONE's 90 Calorie Chewy Bars, I was very excited. These are definitely something I could throw in my purse on my way out the door and snack when I remember to eat. Not only are they extrememly convenient, they are healthy and they taste good! Fiber One 90 Calorie Chewy Bars contain 20% of the recommended daily amount of fiber and to me, that is awesome. It is hard enough to remember to feed myself, much less food that is healthy and beneficial to my body and my growing girls.

  • 75% of women say they fall victim to unhealthy foods when hunger pangs hit and they don't have access to a meal. Whew! I am not the only one.
  • If healthy snacks aren't readily available, women would most likely eat chips/crackers (50%), a candy bar (33%), popcorn (33%), or a fast-food hamburger (23%). Am I the only one that finds this incredibly sad?
Lets not let our hunger pangs get the best of us. Snack on Fiber One 90 Calorie Chewy Bars which is the "official snack" of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Also, please remember, from September 1, 2011 through NOvember 30, 2011, you can visit to enter Fiber One Great Taste GIveaway for a chance to win a trip to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in February 2012!!

The Human Body

Okay.. did you read that?! Pound for pound babies are stronger than an OX?!?! No wonder it's a struggle to get them dressed. Oy! Also, the tooth is the only part of the body that cannot repair itself. That is so weird. Who knew?


I love that 1 in 31 are twins! I cannot believe, however, that 3 million women between 15 and 44 do not use contraception. That statistic scares the crap out of me. Especially with two little girls on the way!
