On a snack mission
OK It is late afternoon and feeling starved as usual! I am in Target on last minute errands before school carpool. Now I am on a mission to find a quick snack with some protein and fiber, without breaking my calorie bank! After all I do have a snack criteria that generally includes no processed sugar, some protein and fiber. The other rule I try to follow but it can be difficult, is that I have to be able to prononunce all the ingredients!!
I found the LaraBar! I had seen this talked about on the biggest looser so I thought I would check it out. Only 3 ingredients, and all of them I can spell! It has protein and fiber and no cholesterol. It is vegan and gluten-free. It does have about 8 sugars depending on the flavor you pick but it is all natural.
I picked up a multi-flavor box and dashed to the car. I tried 3 different flavors; cherry pie, cashew cookie, and apple pie. They were good not my favorite but good. Also they run about 230 calories so be aware when counting calories. I liked the apple pie the best. I think it was a texture thing. I tend to like more crunchy snacks. My kids were not fond of them. My vote is I would buy them again especially if I were traveling for a quick snack to go anywhere! Share your opinions.
