Bars. There are so many out there how do you choose which ones to buy? Do you look at the sugar, the protein, the carbs, the ingredient list? When you start analyzing each ingredient list sometimes they look a little scary with so many ingredients and sugar alcohols and other weird names you may not have heard of.
Enter the larabar.
Larabar’s philosophy is: Simple, Pure, Delicious.
What I love most about the larabar is the short ingredient list, and everything is in its whole state. There are no additives or preservatives here. Yes as a result the protein is lower than other bars, but I find these bars keep me just as full as the other higher protein bars. Maybe it’s all the natural fiber or healthy fat, either way they’re a perfect snack. I usually consider them “portion controlled trail mix.”
Peanut Butter & Jelly Larabar – this is a new flavor and it totally blew me away! It was amazing! I promise Larabar is not paying me to write this. It really tastes like you have a spoonful of peanut butter and fresh jam in your mouth together at one time. And guess what, they accomplish this with 4 ingredients:
Dates, Peanuts, Unsweetened Cherries, Salt
The nutritional facts are: 210 calories, 10 grams fat, 2 grams saturated fat, 27 gram carbohydrate, 4 grams fiber, 6 grams protein.
I always recommend whole food over processed food, and even though larabars are packaged they are real food.
So if you’re getting bored by your current snacks, try the PB&J Larabar, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
