I enjoy my internship thoroughly, I really do. But, seriously, some days it’s complete chaos. Today being one of those flipping days. These ladies had me running allll over the city (in flats mind you :)), all over the office (think fax/copy/mail/call/ah!/ etc.) I’m tired now and was definitely feeling fatigue setting in at 3pm and needed to be re-energized.
I don’t like to drink coffee as a pick-me-up because it usually just makes me feel more tired. So I always try and pack the perfect snack to do the trick. Since becoming sensitive to gluten, I’m really trying hard to stay away from it completely because it just makes me feel ugggh. So I was very pleased to stumble upon the Pure Bar in Trader Joes the other day. Let me explain why this bar is perfect: Zero preservatives, zero refined sugars, gluten-free, certified vegan, and certified raw (aka, they are cold-processed) and contain super amounts of all the vital antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that sleepy girls like me need at 3pm.
These little babies contain 4 grams of fiber, 7 grams of protein, 400mg Omega-3s, AND are the equivalent of 1.5 servings of fruit. Craziness. They’ve got six flavors, but so far I’ve only tried chocolate brownie (duh) and cherry cashew. Both tasting A-maaazing and deliver a serious dose of energy. I can’t wait to try wild blueberry! Yum!
Point here, food allergies/sensitivities or not, these bars rock.
Have you tried them? Did you like them?
P & L,
