Out with the Processed... and IN with Nakd Bars!
I have gotten into a wonderful rhythm when it comes to working out and as I have mentioned on the blog before, I have been working out 5 times a week. It isn't easy and I took baby steps towards it, but it is SO worth it. However, I am not so great when it comes to eating and I really need to start making better choices. Its easy to make poor choices when your limited on time and energy. Cereal bars are always a quick choice, but not the best one when you actually stop and look at the ingredients listed on the box.
Nakd bars are healthy cereal bars from Natural Balance Foods and give you a better option for breakfast and snacking. I was delighted when I received this ENTIRE box c/o Natural Balance Foods full of all of these colorful bars in all sorts of different flavors. The Rhubarb & Custard was the first one I tried!
It was delicious! I was running behind on my day, due to a lot of errands and it was too early to eat lunch yet I needed something to eat before my workout. This was the perfect snack!
I wanted to show you a close up of the back of the wrapper for the Rhubarb Custard bar. It shows the ingredients and it also includes a hint of natural flavoring. Its cold-pressed and has NO added sugar or syrups!
These bars are perfect to put into your gym bag to have on hand if you need a small snack before or after you work out. Or, just keep them around the house if you work out at home.
Here I am after my workout and I'm healthy and happy. And. no... I didn't eat another bar after working out. I had lunch. :) But, doesn't this Bakewell Tart sound fabulous?
These bars would also be a great snack to eat while you are working, studying or planning out your day in your planner!
In addition to the bars, they also sent me their Nakd Salted Caramel Fruit & Nut Nibbles.
Here is a close up of what they look like outside the wrapper. Yes, simply yummy indeed!
I am really excited to try out all of the flavors with my family! There is Cashew Cookie, Berry Delight, Rhubarb & Custard, Ginger Bread, Caffe Mocha, Bakewell Tart and more!
Nakd Bars are raw fruits and nuts smoothed together. These bars contain natural ingredients, meaning there is no added sugars, syrups or other ingredients that shouldn't be there. Completely wheat, dairy and gluten free, these bars have incredible flavor and a soft and chewy texture. These bars are a perfect snack in-between meals, on the go, or even packed in your lunch.
If you want a little more crunch, try out the Nakd Crunch bars that are crammed with soya crunches for extra protein.
Eat Nakd products are available for purchase across the USA at eatnakd.com.
