It's your thing!

I thought it was pretty cool when I found out that I was selected to receive the Slim Fast Advanced Nutrition vox box!  (from Influenster)
   I tried Slim Fast years ago,  and it was one of the few plans out there, that I was able to enjoy.    It wasn't "diet-y"  (new word)  No awful flavors, or snacks with the consistency of a matchbook.
I always liked the Slim Fast shakes.     Years ago,  I used to buy the big tin of powder, and then they came out with the ready made drinks.  They were so handy to just grab and go.   My vox box had some of the newest Slim Fast in it.

The Vanilla shake did not disappoint. It was pretty delicious and not chalky.  I drank it for breakfast and didn't feel hungry for a few hours. Definitely replaced a meal.  Highlights for me: High protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, lactose free,  gluten free.  

The dark chocolate and sea salt bar (I didn't eat because of a tree nut allergy) but I gave it to my friend for her feedback and she loved it.   She said the 'sweet and salty' was perfect for a snack craving and now she wants to buy these Slim Fast bars instead of the brand she's been.

The baked potato crisps were pretty good but I wasn't thrilled with the flavoring.   That's just a personal preference though.   I might try the BBQ flavor.  I did like the crunch and the texture, as well as the fact that they're a good source of protein and fiber. 

The cinnamon drizzled crisps.   Oh my.   I was anxious to try these as soon as I saw the flavor "cinnamon bun".   And yep, these baked crisps are great!  Love the flavor and the little "pop it in your mouth" size.   A great,  midday snack at work.   They didn't last long, but I enjoyed them, AND I got a nice serving of protein and fiber with them.   

Ever since trying all of these products,  I'm back in the Slim Fast club.   I really need to lose some weight and it's hard finding things you can eat or knowing what snacks to grab.    Slim Fast has a nice variety and takes the guesswork out of figuring it out.   I'm definitely picking up some more of these great products.   

*  I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes *   All opinions are my own.
