Real Snacks

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

We are continuing our healthy eating segment over here. We have been long time fans of the GoMacro bars, so when we found out about their new THRIVE bars, by GoMacro, we knew we had to try them.

Like all GoMacro products, Thrive bars are USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO project verified, vegan certified, kosher certified, gluten-free certified and soy-free.

We were lucky enough to try all of the new flavors, nuts and sea salt, caramel coconut, chocolate peanut butter chip, blueberry lavender, ginger lemon, and almond apricot. ALL of them (yes, we are yelling), are all so amazing!!

What is so wonderful about this company, is the story behind them.  GoMacro started a little more than a decade ago to share about healthy and wholesome food.  When Amelia, the founder, was diagnosed with cancer, in 2003, she stopped eating anything that wasn’t grown in the ground. Living on a farm, she grew her own organic vegetables and fruits. As her health improved she and her family were inspired to start GoMacro. And, here we have this amazing bar. Their farm, based in Wisconsin, still remains an integral part of GoMacro products.

We love supporting family businesses and especially ones with such a dear cause.  If you’re looking for a good, clean snack bar, we strongly suggest trying the new Thrive bars or even the original GoMacro bars.

Enjoy the yumminess!

Go Raw

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset

A while back we finished up our healthy, snacking series.  We loved being able to introduce some healthy snacks for the on-the-go person.  Keeping up with the healthy snacks, we found Go Raw. Go Raw uses all fresh, organic products to make their snacks. All of their products are fresh, living products, created with a gentle dehydration process. This all means you don’t have to feel guilty eating these yummy snacks.

We love raw snacks because of the increased energy, mental clarity, and of course, no preservatives. Our family thrives on healthy eating. We have completely cut out refined sugar, which I can tell you has made a huge difference. Try it for just a week, I promise your body will love it, and your sleep will be so much better.

Living healthy is a way of life for our family, we strive to eat as clean as possible. Our bodies feel so good, and knock on wood, we haven’t been sick in years.

I’ve mentioned before that we like lots of smaller bites around here, rather than three large meals.  So, when we decided to partner up with Probar, we knew this was a match made in heaven.  Not only are they organic, you have a choice of a bite bar for a quick satisfying snack, the meal bar, for the meal on the go, the bolt bar, for before your workout, the fuel bar, which is gluten free, and the base bar, which is full of superfoods. And, you can feel good about eating them.  That’s a lot of goodness from one company.

We decided to try the meal bars. They were really, really good! We loved them all! I’m pretty sure you can’t go wrong with any of their products.  We also really enjoyed having the bars for Dave’s lunch.  Dave works in the hospitality industry, and doesn’t always have time for a full meal, so this bar was perfect.

Neither one of us are huge fans of bars, but while doing a little research for this series, we both liked the information behind the Probars company. They have a great mission…”PROBAR® creates delicious, convenient, healthy, plant-based food products. We strive to become the leading provider of REAL FOOD choices, always maintaining our commitment to quality, sustainability and fantastic taste.”

You can purchase Probars online, or other popular retailers.  If you are local in Santa Barbara, I know you can get them at Whole Foods.  Give them a try, they’re a tasty bite!

Head over to our Instagram account, to enter for a chance to win a free box of Probar meal bars.
