Between working at school and then pretty much heading right to the pool until after 7:00 P.M., experimentation in the kitchen has been kept to a minimum. Aside from the hurricane allowing me two nights to make some delicious chili and homemade pizza, my lunchbox staples have been lots of Chobani, Hummus, Sliced Turkey and Chicken Breast, some seriously juicy Jazz Apples, nuts, PopChips and Mojo Bars. Although my taste buds and tummy are still enjoying it, I figured you guys might get kinda bored so I’ll just post a few pics without much description…
What I Wish I Was Eating Wednesday
Now, as the title alludes, this week has been one of some of the same old same, old, BUT since HLS, and that glorious swag bag, I have been obsessed with a few products I did not typically buy, or hadn’t even tried, until then…
- Nugo Bars
- Oikos Drinkable Yogurt (PLEASE COME TO A STORE NEAR ME!!!!!)
- Warrior Crunch Granola (Great Cause and Great Taste…how can you beat it?!)
- Adora Calcium Disks
- Attune Chocolate Crisp Bars (they are like Nestle Crunch!!!)
These are all wonderful additions to my life and I cannot wait to purchase more ASAP!!! (Is it bad that I’ve pretty much consumed everything in that darn bag??!?!)
But the specific item I want to discuss today….one that I am personally very excited about because the mission of their company is incredibly admirable, and the flavor of their whole-food based snack is pretty much top-notch, is the Larabar…
I had tried the Apple Pie flavor a few years ago at Whole Foods, when they were giving out samples of the minis for a back to school promotion. And since then maybe have had one or two more, but I was pretty much a Clif and Luna devotee…until a few weeks ago.
After lunch on Saturday at HLS I was itching for a little something sweet, chewy and chocolatey. So I peaked into my super heavy purple sack and saw a tiny little Larabar in Chocolate Peanut Butter. What a perfect way to end the meal! I unwrapped the enticing treat, took one savory bite and was totally hooked.
It has got a richer flavor profile than Clif, and is softer to chew…almost like a really gooey brownie but obviously with a way healthier nutrition label (check the ingredients guys! You can pronounce them all and the list is just as tiny as a mini bar!).
I cant remember if I had mentioned my love of my inpromptu dessert on here, or on the HLS page, but I received a very friendly e-mail from a person within the company. They offered, since I personally enjoyed their product so much, to host a giveaway on Healthy, Happy, Whole, to send four bars to one lucky reader, so we can help show YOU how awesome they are!
The flavor pack includes:
Obviously some pretty outstanding choices!!!
