Fresh fruits and veggies

Fresh fruits and veggies

I recommend eating as many fruits and vegetables that you can throughout your day. Carry them in your bag so that you always have a healthy snack when you’re on the go.

Fruits and veggies are really the most pure and whole foods that you can eat. Of course, if you buy the conventional ones they will have pesticide residue on them and they may also be genetically modified. Organic produce does not contain any pesticides and will definitely not be genetically changed.

When your hungry throughout your day, grab a fruit. You will be happy with yourself that you didn’t eat the whole box of cookies, or the entire can of jelly beans – stick to eating the products that leave you feeling nourished.

P.S. Try eating fruits and veggies that are in season, they will be cheaper 🙂

One of many Larabar flavors

One of many Larabar flavors

I’ve always had trouble finding a granola bar that’s healthy and filling at the same time. By no means am I trying to replace a meal with these bars, but I like to stick them in my purse for times when I’m desperate for something nourishing. I also like to keep them in my pantry for a snack.

The problem that I find with most of these bars is that they are filled with preservatives, sugar and unhealthy ingredients. SO, when I eat them I have now learned that I am prone to getting a stomachache.

You can imagine how frustrated I’ve been that I can’t eat these bars anymore, nor do I want to. My stomach can’t handle the chemicals/preservatives/sugar that’s used.

I have finally been introduced to a bar that is actually healthy! I am so excited about it that I knew I had to share with my blog community. These bars are filled with real, whole ingredients and are naturally sweetened without any added sugar of any sort. Not even agave!

Next time you’re at the grocery store, pick up a
Larabar and read the ingredients. You will be amazed that there are only about three or four ingredients in most of the bars.

Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t say it’s healthy to eat more then one bar per day – but if you are indulging in other bars this is a MUCH healthier choice. Be advised that they do have fat, but it’s HEALTHY fat; completely different then the other stuff that’s used in the other products.

Enjoy!
