Made with no more than 9 whole food ingredients, Larabars are the only healthy snack bars I eat at this time. Believe it or not, there is such a thing as junk health food and it’s an easy trap to fall into consuming them. I know from experience. Just because it says all-natural or labels itself as healthy, y ou should always read the ingredients. You’d be shocked at what’s contained in most so-called health bars. And justbecause it’s all-natural doesn’t mean you can go crazy and eat all you want. That’s not healthy.
Why I love the Larabar?
Because they are an all natural whole food. Nothing added. My favorite, the Banana Bread pictured here,
has only three ingredients: bananas, dates, and almonds. Containing 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and %13 of the daily allowance of potassium. This little sweetie is perfect for a quick breakfast or snack during the day. I usually take one with me when I know I will not be able to eat for awhile.
Some of you may be concerned with the sugar content, but it’s not refined sugar. The simple sugars found in Larabars are due to the fruit content. This sugar is on a low glycemic level. And we do need simple sugars (glucose) for energy that fuels the body. Enjoy! Just don’t over indulge. ; ) However, if you are diabetic or your doctors says stay away, please do so at your own discretion. You decide whether Larabars are for you.
