WIN-It-Wednesday: Yumpeez

If snack-time is turning into nap-time due to the same old boring gluten and allergen-free snacks that you eat day-in and day-out, you need to try Yumpeez.

Yumpeez are made from certified-organic yellow split peas, cleverly disguised as crunchy flavorful snacks.

Besides the unexpected yummy flavor, I was also astonished when I saw the nutritional info and health benefits of these crunchy gluten-free, nut-free, lactose-free and soy-free snacks. High in fiber, protein and iron, they are also a fantastic source of calcium.  Better yet they are trans-fat free, low in fat, and certified vegan.

I also can count on Yumpeez to “hold me over until dinner time” since they are low on the glycemic index, which means they are a complex carbohydrate that also provides energy that sustains.

Yup… now I know why Yumpeez tagline is “Snack To Win!” and “Yumpeez Takes You Into Overtime!”.

My favorite flavor is the Dill, but the Barbeque flavor is a winner too. At only 120 calories per pack, I feel good about reaching for Yumpeez for snacking, especially around the hectic holidays when a portable, healthy snack is welcomed.  I also like to toss a handful over my lunchtime salad, to give myself a crunchy salad topping, with an added protein energy boost. 

All these healthy and flavorful reasons is why I am so glad that Yumpeez is this week’s WIN-It-Wednesday sponsor. Yumpeez will provide two (Yes….2!) LUCKY BeFreeForMe members a 12-pack combo of the Barbeque and the Dill flavored Yumpeez (6 of each flavor)!

How can you WIN?

    I breath. Stop. Breath. Gather myself and then…..Charge again. sigh. Keep at it.

  2. Cindy Says:

    I take myself into overtime during the holidays by trying to create special holiday memories for my adult children and grandaughters – by decorating inside and out, creating a special craft for us all to do on Christmas Eve and making yummy food to eat together.

    To get myself through the afternoon I put on Christmas music and do a little afternoon exercise, gets my energy going til dinner.

  4. Linda Says:

    I take myself into overtime by making out my Christmas list and shopping until I drop and until all my Christmas gifts are bought.

  5. Janet LaRue Says:

    I always seem to be in overtime regardless of the hectic holiday season! I like to take a warm bath or read late night to relax when everyone else is in bed. Seems it is my own special time when the owls are hooting, you can hear the deer crunch the snow outside, and all is asleep..but me!

  6. Theresa Watson Says:

    I take myself into overtime by volunteering at our church. My husband and I do all of the planning and decorating for our Church Christmas Banquet for 200 people, then we help decorate our church and then watch the Cocoa Beach Parade.

    I destress by praying to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is the reason for this CHRISTmas season.

    I pray that you are all abundantly blessed this Christmas season and in the coming New Year.

    Merry Christmas,
    Theresa Watson

    I am in definite need of more ways to take myself into overtime, holiday season or not! I work full time and am a graduate student. I usually live off coffee, but try to get out at lunchtime for a 2-3 mile walk — the fresh air rejuvenates me for the rest of the day!

  8. Sarah Says:

    I pull myself up by the bootstraps and put on my game face. And if all else fails, remind myself of what this season is all about….GIVING!!! When I think about all that has been freely given to me, it is not such a task to give a little bit more of myself.

  9. Lisa Says:

    Well there’s the baking, shopping, wrapping, decorating, figuring out the schedules and Christmas cards. I just that is a little overtime!

  10. Christine Says:

    I work as many hours as I can on the job to earn extra money to pay for gifts.

  11. Gluten Free Betsy Says:

    Oh nice! Those look yummy! I’m usually on a hundred this time of year. I’ve been helping out at the office holiday events, so I’ve been dipping millions of chocolate spoons (for the hot chocolate bar) and making dozens of cookies (for the cookie decorating day)…as much as I love the holidays, I can’t wait until they are over!!

  12. Karla Thompson Says:

    I try to stop and think of what Christmas is really all about, The birth of Jesus. That Jesus was born on this day to take away the sin of the world and allow me to get to go to Heaven. That’s what calms me the most. To think that I can just hurry around and make this so much more hectic than it has to be. All I really have to do is Celebrate Jesus, that’s what really counts.

  13. Cathy S Says:

    I sit down and watch an old children’s holiday show like “Charlie Brown Christmas” and never miss “The Christmas Story” at least once. We need to enjoy the time like children, it is so refreshing! It makes me think of my parents… I miss them, but it helps keep them close at heart!

  14. Emily Says:

    I have hot cocoa powder mixed with coffee!

  15. Cara Says:

    I start out the day with a nice hot cup of tea and devotional. I also try and catch a few holiday movies on and take a break! 🙂

  16. Laura Says:

    Thank you to all of you who commented on the real reason for the season. I stayed up late making caramel popcorn last night, and was thinking about how giving lovely gifts and the bright look on others’ faces is what gets me through the busy times. However, you guys reminded me that I need to remember and honor Christ. Merry Christmas!

  17. Susan C - AZ Says:

    I send holiday cards to all my dearly beloved friends and family and let them know how important they are to me and how much I care about them. I also volunteer to help others. I enjoy the beautiful weather here in AZ during winter time when it’s the perfect temperature for long walks.

  18. Kay-Kay Says:

    I take the time to call or visit the most precious gifts in my life; the family and friends that God has given me. I do not pressure my self into purchasing the “perfect gift” for them. Our gifts to each other are the time we spend together. I have done this for many years and this year does not feel drastically different because I am unemployed and do not have the money to purchase gifts. I am thankful that God has blessed me with my loved ones.

  19. Kara Says:

    Life is always on overtime at our house, especially this time of year! In the midst of the crazy business I try to slow down and do something special with my boys. Our favorite thing to do together during the holidays is to decorate the tree and the house. When I can, I try to get the boys to help bake some holiday cookies with me (gluten, dairy, soy, and now egg free).

  20. Jae Says:

    Unlike most people, I do my shopping throughout the year. I look for deals online. I check the rebates available every month and designate a certain amount of money every month to extras. Then I sit back, relax with some herbal tea, and enjoy some good movies while everyone I know is running around trying to find that one last perfect gift that I already have! 🙂 So when the holidays roll around, I can be relaxed and still have cash in my pocket!

  21. Monica Says:

    I live in Washington and whenever I am letting the craziness get to me I think of the families of the police officers…and realize how lucky and blessed I am….Now, my husband is out for a boys night with my 3 and 4 year old and I am catching up on e-mail and then headed to a nice bath! WOOHOO!!!

  22. Francine Says:

    I make sure that I never miss exercising in the morning no matter how busy my day. It is what keeps me balanced.
