Have you ever reached the end of your workday and realized you forgot to eat? It happens to me all the time. Even though I work from home and my kitchen is literally a few steps away from my often, I tend to skip lunch on some days because I have no time to eat. It’s not intentional. It’s just that I get so caught up with some of my tasks. Before I know it, It’s time to go pick up Z.E.N. from school and begin a busy afternoon of homework help, making meals and driving back and forth to after school activities. When you’re super busy, like I am, the last thing you want to worry about is lunch. Eating is important though. You have to eat to keep your brain functioning.

Keeping easy snacks on hand helps a lot! A snack I recently tried is the StarKist Tuna Creations Bold pouches. They are the perfect snack to take with you on the go. The pouches are single-serve and require no can opener and no draining, making it easy to add a BOLD protein to your favorite salads, meals and snacks… or you can just grab a fork and eat straight from the pouch wherever you are—just Tear. Eat. And Go! In fact, I have done just that. The other day when I left to pick Z.E.N. up from school, I made sure to grab a pouch from my pantry on my way out. I always get to the school a few minutes early, so I had time to eat right there in the car while I waited for his class to come out. It’s a good source of protein and only 70 calories per pouch.

I have to say that these StarKist Tuna Creations BOLD pouches are pretty spicy! I tried the Tuna Creations BOLD Tapatio variety which features Tapatío Hot Sauce and a touch of lime juice.  I’m a big fan of spicy foods so I was happy with the extra kick of flavor. 

Tuna Creations® BOLD Tapatio

This would go great in a salad, on corn chips, on crackers or straight out of the pouch.

You should really try this on those days when you think you have no time to eat. It’s available in 6 BOLD varieties, including StarKist Tuna Creations BOLD Thai Chili Style, Tuna Creations BOLD Jalapeño, Tuna Creations BOLD Hot Buffalo Style, Tuna Creations BOLD Tapatío, Tuna Creations BOLD Sriracha and, Tuna Creations BOLD with Rice & Beans in Hot Sauce.
