Krave Bar Review

15 Feb

A few weeks ago Steven at Krave Protein Bars gave me the opportunity to sample one of their delicious protein bars in exchange for a review.  The bar that I was given to sample was Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch. He read my mind on this one because anything that involves peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite. These bars are great because they are high in fiber and low in carbs, not to mention they are packed with 20 grams of protein.  They are made with all natural ingredients including whey protein, natural peanut butter and sweeteners.  Krave Protein Bars are soft and not too chewy or sweet.  The consistency is over all perfect and a great meal replacement or mid-day snack in between meals.  This bar kept me full for a very long  time and I thoroughly enjoyed every single bite! If you are looking for a protein bar that tastes great, is all natural and low in carbohydrates I highly recommend checking these out!

NaturAlmond Review

3 Nov

A few days ago I received a tiny little package in the mail from Jaime at NaturAlmond.  I was lucky enough to sample a jar of their maple caramel almond butter.  Let me tell you this stuff is absolute heaven in a jar!  It’s rich and full of flavor.  Great paired with fruit, toast, waffles, crackers, yogurt you name it!  Not only is it delicious but it’s loaded with nutrition.   All of their products are made with no added sugars or preservatives.

I’ve always been a big peanut butter fan but over the last year I have discovered many healthy alternatives, one of them being almond butter.   Almond butter is equally as delicious and much more nutritious.  Almonds are great for your heart, lower blood pressure, control blood sugar, are rich in antioxidants,  and help with weight control.   NaturAlmond is hands down of the best all natural nut butters I have tried and I highly recommend their product.  They offer four flavors including; original, honey roasted, maple caramel, and salt free.   All of their products can be purchased online at www.naturalmond.com .  So head over to their website and check them out, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

EK Choc Review

6 Oct

The wonderful people at Artisana sent me a little package of their brand new products called EK Choc.  They are 100% raw cacao spreads and are made from Venezuelan cacao criollo which is the highest regarded premium cacao from the best cacao beans in the world.   These spreads are boosted with herbs, antioxidants and hazelnuts for added nutty flavor.  These spreads are a great alternative to nutella which is loaded with processed ingredients and added sugar.  The flavors available include cardamon, vanilla, strawberry, rose, and licorice.  My two favorites were the vanilla and strawberry, not too sweet and full of flavor.  These spreads are perfect spread on a rice cake for a quick snack, added to oatmeal, toast you name it!  For more information on this awesome new products made by Artisana check out their website at www.artisanafoods.com

Coconut Secret Review

24 Feb

FEB 12 100

About a month or so ago I received an awesome package from Lena at Coconut Secret and I fell in love.  The package included coconut nectar, coconut aminos and an organic almond coconut bar.  First off the coconut nectar is great it has a very unique flavor and a little goes a long way.  Coconut nectar is a great substitute for maple syrup, agave and honey and has alot less sugar as well as a lower glycemic index.  I use it on my pancakes, toast with nut butter, and sometimes even in my oatmeal.  The only downside there is to this stuff is that is very very sticky, almost like a sap but regardless its still a great healthy alternative to cane sugar.  Coconut aminos have seventeen naturally occurring amino acids and is a great sub for soy sauce which is packed with sodium.  Coconut aminos only have 113mg of sodium in one tsp compared to soy sauce which can have as much as 1,000mg in one tbsp.  I refuse to eat my chicken for dinner anymore without this stuff, its addictive!  It’s also great in salads, marinades and stir frys.  Last but not least the almond coconut bar was unbelievable it was literally love at first bite not to mention it is extremely low in carbohydrates, sugar, and sodium.  I’d like to thank Lena for the generous package!  For more information on all of the fantastic products Coconut Secret has to offer check them out at www.coconutsecret.com
