Larabar and Yogurt for snacks

It’s Friday and I am ready to enjoy the weekend with my family.  Looking forward to hitting the mountains for a hike if all goes as planned. When we go hiking it calls for lots of water and of course some healthy snacks.

One of our favorite snacks to take along with us is a Larabar. It is a great energy stabilizer. They are made from 100% real food. Made up of fruit and nuts. Some of the bars do have chocolate in them, but it is Fair Trade Certified chocolate. The Larabar has simple ingredients, is minimally processed, and GMO free.

One of our number 1 favorite go to Larabar is the Blueberry Muffin, which you can find here. It only has 6 simple ingredients: Dates, cashews, unsweetened blueberries, blueberry juice concentrate, lemon juice concentrate, and vanilla extract. The Blueberry Muffin Larabar is Kosher, Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, and Non-GMO. They are several different flavors, so I am sure you will find one you will love!

So I was hitting up Target today grabbing a few things that were on sale thanks to the cartwheel app. A couple a our favorite yogurts were on the cartwheel app. Organic Stoneyfields YoKids squeezers was 50% off and Chobani Kids Tubes 5% off today. My kiddos enjoy having yogurt for snack, and I feel comfortable providing them these options.

 

I really try to just sticking to my grocery list and that is it, but as I was walking out something caught my eyes. I usually have great will power, but when it comes to certain types of mints…maybe not so much. Mint Chip Brownie Larabar….Say WHAT! So of course I had to pick up a box up to try. What can I say, they are simply amazing. They are Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Vegan, Dairy Free, and Kosher. They are made with dates, almonds, semisweet chocolate chips (unseated chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla extract), cashews, cocoa powder, and peppermint oil. They sure are dangerously good! So good in fact, I had the hubs pick up a couple of boxes for me to have on hand! After looking into it further since I have not seen this kind anywhere (and I know and tried almost every one) I found out this kind is actually Target exclusive only. Note to self…So if you are out and about at Target you should keep a look out for these. A nice healthy treat for oneself from time to time! IMG_0138

Happy snacking! Remember keep it simple…Keep it healthy. Enjoy your journey, wherever it may take you. Enjoy your beautiful weekend.
