Snap Kitchen: My Results

I’ve now been off the Snap Kitchen 21-day Snap Commit program for a little over a week, and I miss those prepared meals! I’ve definitely noticed the difference in how I felt when I was on the program — energized! optimistic! — with the way I feel now (sluggish) and I miss having my own personal chef to make sure I’m putting the right things in my system.
