U Chic Approved: SkinnyBits

By Kelly Leslie, Student at San Francisco State University

Calling all Chicsters! Do you constantly find yourself needing a mid-afternoon nap or wishing you hadn’t grabbed the sugary snack for extra energy?

We all know how hard it can be to maintain a proper, nutritional diet with a busy college lifestyle … which almost always leads us to low energy and a desire to be healthier. What would you say if there was one food that could fill in the gaps of your nutritional needs, give you extra energy, help you shed a few pounds and it was always ready on the go? It sounds too good to be true, right?

Well this time it isn’t! The experts from Skinnybits have figured out just what you need … algae. Loaded with 40 vitamins and other nutrients that our bodies require to survive, algae contain no sugar and are 60 percent protein, according to the professionals at Skinnybits. You can imagine how taking it would do wonders for your body, not to mention your hair and nails! 

If you’re looking for a way to curb your appetite and shed a few pounds, Skinnybits are just what you need! Use them as a meal replacement or snack on them mid-afternoon when you would usually go for the potato chips. These small, one-calorie tablets will help you cut down on calories while ensuring your body has all of the right nutrition.

Are you a vegetarian? Even after six years of being a vegetarian, I am still always looking for new foods that are high in protein. Top of your favorite salad with Skinnybits to instantly protein-pack your meal.

Want all of the benefits of algae but don’t feel the need to lose any weight? No problem! With four different kinds of bits (Skinny, Recovery, Vitality, and Energy), there is definitely one out there for you. They are available for purchase in bags of 1,000 and even come with a super trendy carrying tin so that you can always have them on the go.

My take on Skinnybits? I’ll be the first to admit that I crinkled my nose at the mere thought of eating algae, but now I am a firm believer! I definitely think algae bits are an acquired taste, but regardless of how you feel about the flavor, they are small enough to be swallowed so you never actually have to chew them. I ate my skinny bits as a snack after work (when I usually am the most drained) and was amazed at how well they worked. I was able to make it through my evening with an extra boost of energy, and I didn’t feel the need to eat again until dinner. I even felt an extra little pep in my step during my daily workout … and I’ll eat algae any day for that.
