Take A Small Step To Being Your Best This Summer With goodnessKNOWS® Snack Squares

goodnessKNOWS® to Celebrate International Yoga Day LIVE on Facebook with Ali Fedotowsky and Demos from Fitness and Nutrition Experts

HACKETTSTOWN, N.J., June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This summer, goodnessKNOWS® snack squares is encouraging people to take a small step to get closer to their goals –  and what better way to start than on June 21 – the first day of summer and International Yoga Day. To give everyone an opportunity to participate in the brand's inaugural "Try a Little Yoga Day," goodnessKNOWS® will be hosting the celebration LIVE on its Facebook page with yoga and snack recipe demos from experts.

Hosted by TV personality and lifestyle blogger Ali Fedotowsky-Manno, the event will kick-off at 3:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, June 21 on the goodnessKNOWS® Facebook page. The event will begin and conclude with yoga instruction led by fitness expert Liz Germain of Super Sister Fitness, and Fedotowsky will be there along the way to help answer fans' questions and encourage everyone to get out a mat (or towel, or bath rug) and follow along.

In between yoga poses, goodnessKNOWS® snacking expert, Carlene Thomas, MS RD, Healthfully Ever After will join the Facebook Live to show Fedotowsky and fans the benefits of mindful snacking with recipes and tips that will fuel your small steps this summer.

For some inspiration to get started on your journey to reaching your goals this summer, Fedotowsky shares the following three tips that have worked for her:

  • Only Commit to the First Step: "When I consider heading to a yoga class, the only commitment I make to myself is getting to the parking lot of the class. Once I'm sitting in the parking lot in my yoga clothes, I'm more likely to actually go inside and take the class. It might sound silly, but it's a small step that works for me!"
  • Make Fitness Work For You: "I try to go to a yoga studio when I can, but as a new mom, it's not always something I can fit into my schedule. Instead, I find ways to work out around my house – when I'm playing with my daughter, I'll toss her up in the air multiple times to help tone my arms or I'll dance around the house to be silly and keep her entertained - every little bit counts!"
  • Eat Mindfully and Enjoy Yourself: "It's important to listen to what my body is craving and hungry for and become more aware of how I can best nourish it. A snack like goodnessKNOWS®, with real fruit, whole nuts and dark chocolate, not only satisfies my sweet tooth, but takes the guesswork out of portion control. I really like having the option to snack on one or two squares to fuel me when I'm on the go, and I still have the rest of the pack to enjoy later!"

As its own small step to being its best, goodnessKNOWS® also recently debuted a new, bolder logo design and new packaging that highlights those same, delicious ingredients on the front of the pack. Keep an eye out for the new look on shelves near you and enjoy identifying which flavor of snack squares speaks most to your snacking journey.
