A Customer's Perspective: What Makes Jeca Bars and Cookies So Convenient?

A Customer's Perspective: What Makes Jeca Bars and Cookies So Convenient?

In the second of a four-part interview Jeca supporter, Wendy Schiffman, gives her take on why Jeca snacks are a convenient and healthy snack option.

Q: What is it about the convenience that appeals; being able to just grab a bar, raise your energy levels, and keep going? Why is that such a great thing?

A: Well, I tend to race all day and I'm not necessarily scheduling a lunch. I can just grab some Jeca bars or cookies as I go. The packaging is easy. It's quick to open. And so that I appreciate too. Ree's bars are nutritious and I can just open up a package and keep going.

Q: Let's talk more about the nutrition and wellness of the bars. What do you understand of the nutritional value of the bars? Why are they so healthy and good for you?

A: It's 100 percent all natural ingredients. What I'm reading on the package is what is in there so I'm not putting chemicals into my body, I'm putting real food into my body and as much as people want to try all these different pseudo ingredients to make something better, truth is, natural products are what make something better.

Jeca products are 100 percent natural and I have the energy that I need from real food. It's not a bunch of things I can't pronounce that are on the label, and if anyone ever had any allergies or sensitivities to anything that's in there they would know right away because all you have to do is read the ingredients.

Q: What about the cookies? What is your favorite flavor, and why?

A: Well the cookies are great. Those are a flavor sensation. Every single one of them. My favorite is Bangkok and I mean I could eat one of those every day. I love them. I love how each cookie really represents whatever region it's named after. And it's interesting because you really can taste that ... the culture in it, which its really interesting.

It's very unique, and anyone who is a real foodie, I always encourage them to try these cookies because they're just so unique. And I love that you get energy out of them, other than just having a treat. It makes it a special treat because it's so different. And not just a sugary treat. Anybody can go and have a cookie, and have it be a sugar bomb. This is a flavor bomb.

Jeca’s Guide to Healthy Snacking

Jeca’s Guide to Healthy Snacking

In days gone by, many used to believe that snacking was “bad” for you and that sticking to “three square meals a day” was the best way to stay healthy and avoid overeating. Nowadays, many nutritionists believe the opposite is true and that eating little and often is best. At Jeca, we’re of the opinion that you should keep it simple and listen to your body! If you eat natural, nutritious food when you feel hungry, you’ll be on the right track to a healthy diet.


But as we all know, eating natural, nutritious food in our busy lives takes planning. That’s why we created Jeca bars and cookies - to give you a nutritious snack option on the go. Here are our other suggestions about how you can snack in a healthy way.


  1. Listen to you body.

All too often we snack out of habit rather than necessity. One way to ensure that your snacking stays on the healthy side is to think of a scale from 1 to 10 - where 1 is you are starving and 10 is you couldn’t eat another bite. The next time you reach for a mid-morning snack, stop and think, what level am I really? If you are 5 or above, perhaps you don’t really need that snack at all and should give it a miss and have a glass of water or a cup of tea instead. But anywhere below 5, don’t deprive yourself and take the fuel your body needs.


  1. Snack mindfully.

This suggestion is very important. All too often, we gobble down food with little thought or even enjoyment. Think about the last time you snacked; can you even remember what it was or how it tasted? Mindless eating can lead you to overeat easily, and this is where snacking can become an unhealthy habit. Instead, take your time. Preferably stop what you are doing for a moment and really savor the taste of what you are consuming. It may be tempting when you are busy to eat while multitasking, and sometimes this is unavoidable. But when you can, take a time out to eat mindfully, you’ll see an improvement in your state of mind and productivity. So go on, enjoy every bite!


  1. Keep an eye on portion size.

At Jeca, we don’t believe you need to count calories like a religion. But keep your snacks to a sensible size to avoid overeating and gaining weight. If you do like to think in terms of calories, think 150 - 250 kcals per snack. Or, if you prefer portion size, about a handful of almonds or a ¾ cup of natural yogurt. Of course, jeca bars and cookies come in perfect snack size portions, so you don’t need to worry about portion size at all!


  1. Focus on balanced nutrients.

Healthy snacking means finding the right balance of nutrients to keep you energized and full. If you find your body is telling you that you need to eat too frequently, it’s probably because the mix of nutrients in what you are eating is out of whack. Instead of processed junk, snack on foods that contain a good balance of protein, fiber and fat. Aside from our products, other great options for balanced snacks include:

  • a handful of unsalted, roasted nuts
  • half a whole grain bagel with cream cheese
  • ½ a cup of plain Greek yogurt with ½ a cup of blueberries
  • ½ a sliced apple topped with thin slices of cheddar cheese
  • Three celery sticks topped with a tsp each of peanut butter
  • Three tbsp of hummus with carrot sticks

  1. Get organized.
The times when we fall off the healthy eating wagon are the times when we aren’t prepared. Plan for what you will snack on when you are doing your grocery shopping. That way you’ll have the right ingredients available and can prepare your snack the night before work or school. You can order Jeca Energy Bars in packs of 10 and Jeca Energy Cookies in a variety pack of 6 online. With free shipping on orders over $20, you need never run out!
