perfect bar newContinuing on with sharing more nutritious snacks.  The next company we have teamed up with is Perfect Bar.  I first tried perfect bar a while back.  I actually came across someone on Instagram, who was eating them.  I’m not going to lie, she looked darn good, and this was one of her “meal” items that she swore by.  So, I was on it.  I had a hard time finding them at first, because I was looking on the store shelves by all of the other bars. But, because they are completely preservative free, without any artificial ingredients and emulsifiers, they were located in the refrigerated section. YES! even better.

I have tried all of the Perfect Bars.  They are all equally delicious.  Usually, with bars, I find one or two in the group that I really like, and leave the rest behind.  Not the case with Perfect Bar. The bars are so fresh, and are very filling. Great supplement for a small meal, at least for me.  Dave loves the Perfect Bars too.  We both feel great after we eat one.  Just knowing that there are no preservatives in them, that they are GMO free, filled with 20+ superfoods AND gluten free, REALLY does make all of the difference.

If you live in Santa Barbara, you can find them at Whole Foods, Lazy Acres, and occasionally I will find them at Costco. Remember: Always in the refrigerated section. Our family stands behind this company 100%. Nothing but good stuff fills the Perfect Bar!

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!

health // nourish snacks

We continue our healthy eating/snacking series with Nourish Snacks.  I was really looking forward to trying Nourish snacks.  I’ve heard a little about them, and loved the idea of having a nutritional snack for the on-the-go person.  I like to snack, matter of fact, all of my meals could be snacks.  I’d much rather eat more, small bites, than three big meals.  I always have my protein balls in the refrigerator for my go-to snack, but they are not ideal for putting in my purse.  So, these little packets are perfect.  None of them are over 200 calories.

They offer a great sampler pack.  This would be a good one to start with, so you could figure out which flavors you like. We tried, honey bee good, monkey love, cocoa loco, miss popular, and holy habanero. I liked the honey bee good and the monkey love. Dave also liked the honey bee good. The names are the best, aren’t they?! These are only a few of the selections, you can look on their website for a full listing.

Snacking doesn’t have to be junk food.  There are so many healthy alternatives these days, which is why we are excited to have started this series, so we can share some of them with you.  We would love to hear any that you may have?
