Satisfy Hunger On-the-Go with Smithfield's Ready, Snack, Go!
I've come to the conclusion that life is never going to slow down. I used to think "next week" or "next month" I'll have a little down time. Then I blink and it's next year. As the kids get older, our schedules only get fuller, so instead of fighting it, I've decided to embrace it. In the midst of all the madness, I've found that's it's really easy to eat mindlessly. Unfortunately mindless eating usually doesn't satisfy or nourish, so I swiftly wind up feeling more exhausted than I did before I ate.

Fortunately easy doesn't always have to mean bad. Instead of reaching for a cookie or chips, reach for something high in protein that will actually fuel your body. It's always great to have portioned baggies within reach, tucked in your purse or bag, or stashed in your car, but another delicious, healthier option made from simple ingredients and packed with protein is Smithfield's Ready, Snack, Go! portable snack packs.

Ready, Snack, Go! is the perfect combination of sliced Smithfield lunchmeat paired with fresh cheese that not only satisfies hunger on the go, but is incredibly delicious. If you've never tried Smithfield's lunchmeat, you are in for a treat—I swear, it's not boring at all!

Each variety of Ready, Snack, Go! is gluten-free, has 100 calories or less, and is packed with 8 to 10 grams of protein. They are individually sealed, which makes it a school-safe no-nut option, and are available in six flavor varieties:
  • Smithfield Smoked Ham and American Cheese
  • Smithfield Smoked Ham and Hot Pepper Cheese
  • Smithfield Smoked Ham and Swiss American Cheese
  • Smithfield Roasted Turkey and American Cheese
  • Smithfield Roasted Turkey and Hot Pepper Cheese
  • Smithfield Roasted Turkey and Swiss American Cheese

I'm hard-pressed to pick a favorite, but the Smoked Ham and Hot Pepper Cheese and the Smoked Ham and Swiss American Cheese battling it out for that top spot in my book.

When do we turn to Ready, Snack, Go! and other protein-rich snacking options:
  • As an after school snack, they are just enough to keep them holding on until dinner time.
  • Thrown into a lunchbox, they make a great protein addition to lunch or saved to eat after school if there's an activity immediately after that keeps them from coming home and raiding the fridge.
  • They're awesome for grabbing on my way out the door when I have a lot of errands and taxiing to do.
  • Adding them to a gym bag with a bottle of water for an after-workout protein boost.
