Has this ever happened to you? It’s 3pm and there’s no way you’re going to make it to dinner without a snack. You know that you should eat something healthy like protein-packed almonds or full-of-fiber veggies and hummus — but those snacks couldn’t be further from what you’re craving. So, you grab a sugary granola bar, a cookie or a handful of candy and, in what feels like no time at all, you’re hungry again. Been there, done that.

Snacking has always been the one thing that makes (or breaks) my healthy eating habits. My friends and family joke that I am “always eating” but I’ve learned that without something to fuel my afternoon, I’m almost guaranteed to fall off the healthy eating bandwagon — which brings us back to our original dilemma: what to snack on when you’re craving something sweet.

I swear by Perfect Bars. They’ve got plenty of whole-food protein (from ingredients like nut butter and eggs) to keep me going strong and the healthy fat from the nuts keeps me full until dinner (which I tend to eat pretty late in the day). Better yet, each bar packs more than 20 organic superfoods, which leaves me feeling nourished. I love that I’m getting everything from flax seed to kale in a bar that tastes nothing like those ingredients. Wondering how Perfect Bars get their sweetness and crave-worthy, cookie dough-like texture? Organic honey.

I eat Perfect Bars year-round (there are so many yummy flavors) but always look forward to September, when they release their limited-edition pumpkin pie bars. These seasonal bars keep my healthy eating goals on track for the fall and satisfy my craving for a sweet, pumpkin spice-themed treat. The only catch? The pumpkin pie flavor won't be around long! There are a lot of other people that love them as much as I do so make sure you snag a box (or two) before they sell out.
