Make A Positive #2015Revolution with Special K and Prize Pack Giveaway! CAN 01/31

| January 5, 2015 | 159 Comments

It is the start of a new year, and with this new start, people like making resolutions to help making changes in their lives. Me, I am not going to make a resolution. Like many Canadians, I never stick to the resolutions I have made, and then I feel bad for the rest of the year because I did not stick to this promise. Instead, I am going to set a positive goal for my family to eat a bit smarter, since we really enjoy junk food! We are joining Special K in their #2015Revolutiuon and to set a goal, instead of a resolution, to eat better this year! Kelloggโ€™s Special K sent my family a bevy of their products to give us ways to get off to a good start to and to help us accomplish this goal!

Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, Special K has many options to start the day off right with healthily and delicious products! Eating cereal is one way we start off our mornings here at my house, and we enjoyed three of the cereals we received from Special K! My other half and I liked Special K Protein Cereal because it had a sweet flavour while having the healthy oats to help keep you full for a longer period of time than a normal bowl of cereal would.

My son loved Special K Low Fat Granola Cereal so much that he would eat small bowls of it either as a part of his breakfast, as part of one of his snacks, or as his treat before he went to bed at night!

I really liked Special K Chocolatey Red Berries Cereal as well! It had a light sweetness because of the pieces of chocolate and strawberries. Having this cereal along with the rest of my breakfast helped me feel good for the morning!

There were other mornings where I just was not in the mood for cereal, but I needed something to help get me going. Instead of turning to a sugar-filled food, I tried Special K Morning Protein Shake in their Mocha flavour. After my first sip, I could taste the mocha in this shake, but it was subtle.  For me, it was more chocolatey, which I was really happy about since I love chocolate milk. It was a great way to have something to eat first thing in the morning to add to a light breakfast so I was not hungry a few minutes later.

Keeping the munchies at bay during the middle of the day can be challenging, especially when your choices are limited. That is why we were glad to have Special K snack bars to try and eat to help get us through this part of the day. My other half really enjoyed their Protein Bars in their Peanut Butter Chocolate flavour. He took them to work to enjoy on his breaks or as a part of his lunches, and he thought they were delicious, and they filled him up so he could get through his day without becoming hungry again for a few hours. They were such a hit, that I literally blinked and they were all gone!

I really enjoyed Special K Cookies and Cream Flavour Pastry Crisps! They had a drizzle of chocolate on top of two cookies that had a layer of cream sandwiched in the middle. They were such a delight to have as a snack right after I put my little ones down for a nap or as a treat before getting to work at night on a post.

If I do have any downtime at night, I would usually celebrate this rare moment with some sort of salty snack. Special K also has healthy snacks that I can eat to help add healthier snacks into my rotation. We liked the Special K Popcorn Chips in their Butter flavour as we all love eating popcorn at my home, and having this healthier option was a great snack for all of us to enjoy! They were light, buttery and crispy change to the popcorn treat we usually enjoy! My other half and my little ones were especially fond of them!

My eldest and I fell in love with Special K Cracker Chips in their Salt & Vinegar flavour. Since Salt &Vinegar Chips are our favourite flavoured chip, these cracker chips were a big hit with us! We ate these while having some mother-daughter bonding time catching up on television shows we missed during the past season. They tasted the same as their chip counterparts, and knowing that they were good for us made us enjoy them even more. We cannot wait to get another box!

We also received a very cute tote bag Special K! This was a bonus for me, as this would give me a push to not just want to start eating healthier this year, but to become more active outside of my home more often this year. It is a great size as it is able to carry the following items inside:

  • A pair of cross training shoes
  • My yoga pants
  • A t-shirt
  • A towel
  • My cell phone
  • My cell phone charger
  • A travel-size bottle of shampoo
  • A travel-size bottle of body wash
  • My bottle of lotion

Tote Collage

This tote also has long straps so I can carry it with ease on my shoulders without a lot of fuss, and there is a big pocket inside of its signature red interior so I can carry my phone and its charger so it can charge while being connected to each other.

My family really loved all of the products we tried from Kelloggโ€™s Special K! They are helping to add healthier foods into our meals throughout the day, and they taste great! We are really happy that we were able to try all of these amazing products from Special K and that we now have new alternatives to eat for every part of our day! You should try and take the #2015Revolution with Special K, and add these products to your day for a positive change to the New Year, too!
