Good morning my lovely readers and friends. I have been trying to enjoy every moment of this weekend since I got off of work Friday afternoon. My company is in the midst of our busy season and work has been cray-to the-zee. I worked last Sunday, so used some of my comp time to take Friday afternoon off (
hoarding saving the other half-day for later in the year!).
I made myself lunch a simple lunch at home consisting of a childhood favorite…
PB&J! These have been on my lunch menu regularly for the past week or two. Paired with a sweet, juicy apple and I am one happy five-I mean-23 year old!
A couple bites into my lunch and I heard a knock at the door. Good thing I just so happened to be home on a Friday afternoon, because the UPS man had a special delivery for me!
I was recently contacted by Good Greens
, a company based in my home state of Ohio that makes nutritional bars and powder, about reviewing their products. I had never heard of the bars, but was excited to learn they have partnered with the Ohio State University in it’s effort to remove unhealthy snacks across the campus. Instead, the school will be replacing heavily processed snacks with nutrition bars like Good Greens’ among others. It’s so nice to see large institutions taking initiative to make a difference. We can all benefit from having less unhealthy snacks tempting us throughout the day.
I was sent some bite-sized samples and some of their full bars in a variety of flavors. I couldn’t just try one, so I nibbled on a few different flavors after my main meal.
So far I really like the Chocolate Peanut Butter. The Mixed Berry and Chocolate Raspberry were much better than I expected, since I usually don’t care much for the combination of chocolate and fruity flavors.
The nutritional value of these bars is outrageous. In a good way! They are organic, vegan and gluten free so they fit just about any diet. They The best part of these bars is that a single regular size bar contains 100% of your daily dose of vitamins and minerals you need from fruits and veggies.
Some other notable facts:
-5 grams of fiber
-12 grams of protein
For now, these bars can only be found in select locations around Ohio, but you can order online too! Check them out if you’re interested in trying a new nutrion bar.
