Lara Bar Review

Hey guys! Wow, it’s Wednesday again?

How does this happen?

But, you know what, it’s totally fine because I love What I Ate Wednesday! And I’m taking WIAW in a little different direction today by reviewing something I received in the mail last week! LÄRABARS!

Alright, I don’t know about you, but LÄRABARS have been some of my favorite when I discovered them, which was about 3 years ago, and having the chance to review them, makes me extremely happy.

Thank you to Jenn for hosting WIAW for all us foodies! Let’s get on the review, shall we?

LARABAR Review

Roasted Nut Roll: Sweet, salty, fruity.

My thoughts: This is one of those bars that I crave when I’m hiking and it’s definitely one of those bars I could eat A LOT. Because…it was delicious! I wanted more ❤

Apple Pie: Tasted just like apple pie

My thoughts: The taste was wonderful! Not too sweet but still tasted like apple pie. This bar could easily be rolled out and baked on top of a gluten free (homemade) miniature crust and VOILA, you’d have your own healthy apple pie. Actually, I think I’m gonna get on that.

Lemon Pound Cake: Fruit and nut bar

My thoughts: Um, lemon is one of my favorite flavors and they definitely got spot on with this bar. Lemon Pound Cake in a package, a few ingredients, and healthyyyyy? Yes, please, don’t mind if I do!

Nut Butter Chocolate: Perfect amount of nut butter and chocolate

My thoughts: I’m saving the best for last! This was my favorite bar! Oh my gosh, I can’t even… It was just way too good! I ate it while I sipped on my coffee, and I gotta say, I needed another one! They probably don’t know this, but I’m like the biggest fan of nut butter and of chocolate, so when they put these two together and created a bar, I was mind blown with the first bite! Anyone else a big fan of NB and Choc. together?

Another great thing about these bars is that they’re kind of small. Which, makes it easy for me to throw in my purse, pocket, lunch box, laptop bag, etc. Even though, I’d love these to be bigger so I could enjoy it longer, I do realize there is a good amount of calories in each one. These are not 50 calorie bars or anything! This a very high nutrient dense bar so don’t get too carried away. But totally, enjoy them!

Food Ideas from the Past Week (pictures)

Wow, it’s already Memorial Day! I hope all of you are enjoying yourself and relaxing on such a wonderful holiday.

I know I haven’t blogged in over a week…but I’ve been rather busy with school and work that blogging just wasn’t on my mind. But back to it! I wanted to share with you some meals I caught on camera (before I devoured them). My eats are always revolved around quick and easy but still healthy. Maybe these pics can give you some ideas! Let’s get started!

Turkey, Arugula, Muenster Cheese, & Hummus on Organic Bread for lunch at work along with a pear and some organic blue corn chips.

I won some RISE BARS from The Picky Eater blog and OMG, they are definitely delicious. I love the sweet and slightly chewy textures and the protein bars taste excellent even though they’re very different from most protein bars. They aren’t my favorite, but definitely worth it. Simple and clean ingredients. So, it’s also good on the digestive system. No worries with these. Will have to buy some for the future!
