Quality Time & Doing Good #KINDMilesMatter
Lately, our two year old, has been super into taking the dog outside for walks. The huge smile on his face in the photo above might just be a dead giveaway. Our friend Phoebe isn’t so sure. She’s a little dog so Mr. Dude’s spontaneity and unbridled energy can freak her out sometimes. The two are best buddies around meal times though. It is the one time they both love sharing.
I love to spend quality time with my little family. I’d rather spend a Friday night at the drive-in or a Saturday at the park with them than get any gift. Physical gifts are great, but in the long run they wear out. Memories can last forever when written down and shared. I’ve always preferred experiences over things. They make me happiest. Its important for families to get moving and spend quality time together, especially during the sunny summer time. We don’t get easy winters in Chicago often so those sunny summer months are key. Made from nutritious and wholesome ingredients, KIND snacks are a perfect fit for our family and help to fuel our journeys.

I was chosen to participate in the #KINDMilesMatter campaign to become more active and help a local charity at the same time. KIND will donate a box of KIND bars to The Night Ministry for every mile we completed together as a family. The Night Ministry is a Chicago-based organization that works to provide food, housing, health care and human connection to members of our community struggling with poverty or homelessness. We logged total of 24 miles in two weeks and are happy to help out a great organization. We visited several of the walking trails around where we live, saw a fireworks show over the July 4th weekend and a shopping mall when the weather wasn’t so nice.

Since its founding in 2004, KIND has been on a mission to make the world a little kinder one snack and act at a time. All award-winning KIND snacks are made from delicious, wholesome ingredients and are gluten free and non GMO. They were chosen this year to participate in the Made to Matter — Handpicked by Target product features in stores. This is a program in which Target has selected brands that have supported three distinct pillars (unique collaborative partnerships, innovation, social responsibility) in an effort to offer their consumers better-for-you and better-for-the-world products. KIND hits the mark.
The KIND snacks are a smart way to stay fueled up. Plus, I love the bold flavors they have like Honey Smoked BBQ & Roasted Jalapeño; 10g of Protein, ingredients you can see & pronounce.
They currently offer six different snack lines including: KIND® Fruit & Nut and KIND® PLUS, two lines of delicious whole nut & fruit bars; KIND® Nuts & Spices, a line of whole nut & spice bars that naturally have only 5g of sugar or less; KIND Healthy Grains® Clusters made from five super grains; KIND Healthy Grains® Bars, a line of crunchy and chewy granola bars; and STRONG & KIND®, a line of savory-flavored bars featuring 10g of protein.
