Quick Calorie Facts

 Hey!

So i am kind of giggling as i post this nutrition information because tonight after walking 10 km around the Stanley Park sea wall (taking some beautiful pics) i somehow ended up consuming 6 protein bars!! It was the weirdest binge eating experience i have ever had! Haha normally a person might eat too many chips, or cookies, haha who but overeats protein bars??? Luckily they were on sale..

Anyways, heres just a little chart i have put together when your planning out your snacks for the day.
