Happy Sunday Friends! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
Eating healthy on the go can be difficult at times, but with a little planning, it can be done! Packaged granola bars and "health food bars" are usually filled with sugars, artificial ingredients and additives. When l look for a bar I always look at the ingredients first. I check for the following things:
1. Can I pronounce all the ingredients?
2. Are these ingredients things I can find in my pantry?
3. Does this product contain sugar, and how much?
Buyer beware: Be very weary when a product makes a health claim like "low fat," "low sugar," "whole grains," etc. These claims are are used as a marketing tool do catch the consumer's eye. If a product is low fat that usually just means they added more sugar or chemicals to compensate.
Pure Bars are one of my favorite snacks to go. I have to say, I actually prefer them to every one's beloved Larabars.
My favorite flavor is their Chocolate Brownie (of course):
Yes, I need a manicure. Yes, I have the world's tiniest hands. (ring size 4).
Pieces of walnuts? Yes please!!
Ingredients: Organic dates, organic walnuts, organic agave nectar, organic almonds, organic cashews, organic brown rice protein, organic cocoa.
I love this bar because not only does it taste delicious, but it is made from all organic, all natural ingredients. All of these ingredients are items I have in my pantry and I could make a home-made version of this if I wanted to.
I don't eat these bars daily, but they are great for busy days when I need to keep a snack in my purse.
Have you tried Pure bars before?
Do you prefer Pure bars or Lara Bars?
