40 Fun Ways to Burn 100 Calories + #SpecialKSnackBars

As soon as the holidays wind down, I know we’ll all be looking for ways to snack healthier – no more gingerbread, egg nog, sugar cookies or candy canes until next year. However, I personally hate to feel deprived — I want to munch on something that tastes indulgent but doesn’t negate the benefits of my workout for the day. That’s why I was excited to find out about Kellogg’s new product coming to a supermarket near you in January 2014 — Special K Snack Bars.

These convenient snack bars are the ideal pairing of taste and nutrition that provide a satisfyingly scrumptious snack any time of the day — after a workout, a mid-morning break, or to sooth the afternoon “hangries.” There are four delicious flavors – Berry Medley, Blueberry Bliss, Salted Caramel Chocolate and Salted Pretzel Chocolate – and each only has 100 calories per bar. It’s amazing how decadent and delicious these bars taste for a mere 100 calories. The product size is just right too – not too big as to ruin your appetite for a full meal later, but so small that your tummy is still growling. After much taste-testing, I think my favorite flavor is the Salted Pretzel Chocolate, but they are all yummy!

Visit www.specialk.com for more information on the new Special K® Chewy Snack Bars, available January 2015 at grocery and mass retail stores nationwide. You can also find out more by joining the chatter on Kellogg’s Facebook (SpecialKUS) and Twitter (@SpecialKUS).

Now, if you want to add a little extra exercise to your day, I’ve rounded up 40 activities that burn 100 calories in 30 minutes or less. The calculations are based on a 150 pound person. Have fun, get moving!
