FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, AND TODDLERS?yola-link-is-coming=true 2+
No matter how good our intentions are, eating on the go is often a necessity. Whether running out the door to work, chasing our kids around the house, or trying to get the nursery ready before our little one’s big arrival, it seems that there are never enough hours in the day – especially when it comes to sitting down and enjoying a nutritious meal.
Thankfully there are so many on-the-go bars and snacks out there that finding a healthy and delicious option is just a quick arm-reach away. Or is it?!
Delve deeper into the ingredient labels on your favorite snack or granola bar and you may be surprised at all the “foreign” and unhealthy ingredients that are filling up your foods, and therefore your belly.
Well thanks to Pure Bar and their line of organic and gluten-free bars and fruit chews, getting a purely healthy and delicious snack is no longer a struggle.
THE PRODUCT: Pure Bar has made it their mission to take the purest of ingredients and develop the healthiest and most delicious snacks. They believe that snacking should be simple and nutritious and by taking 100% whole and organic ingredients, their bars and fruit chew products are just that.
Certified Organic, gluten-free, vegan, kosher, and non-GMO verified, the original line of Pure Bars are also considered raw, thanks to their cold-pressed “formulation” and lack of heating their ingredients. Available in 8 delicious flavors, the newest of which is Cashew Coconut, each bar is loaded with a plethora of fruits and nuts, with nothing artificial to speak of.
As Pure Bars’ popularity has grown, so has their product line, which now includes 3 amazingly delicious Pure Ancient Grain Bars, Fruit & Veggie Strips, and Fruit Sandwiches.
NUTRITION-WISE: As previously mentioned, all of Pure’s products are Certified Organic, non-GMO verified, gluten-free, vegan, and kosher. Plus, there are no artificial sweeteners, flavors, or preservatives in any of their foods.
Boasting ingredients like antioxidant-loaded fruits and heart-healthy nuts, you won’t find any chemically-engineered components in Pure Bars – just wholesome, natural goodness. With flavors like Chocolate Brownie and Apple Cinnamon, the 6 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber you will be getting, all for under 200 calories, is the perfect boost whether looking for an afternoon snack or post-dinner treat.
Pure Ancient Grain Bars are also chock full of nutritious ingredients, including an exclusive ancient grain blend that combines healthy grains like quinoa, amaranth, flax and hemp, to deliver a complete source of protein, fiber, and antioxidants. They also contain much less sugar and sodium than most energy bars, coming in at around 160 calories, with 5 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of sugar.
Lastly, Pure Fruit & Veggie Strips are flat strips made from fruit and vegetable purees and juices, while their Fruit Sandwiches are triple-layered, double-flavored, and are also made from fruit purees and juices. Again, there is nothing artificially added, just pure fruit and veggie goodness.
FINAL THOUGHTS: As a mom that is constantly on the go, I’m always looking for a quick and nutritious snack to help tide me over until my next meal. With so many “healthy” snack bars out there, I used to think this would be easy. However, trying to find a brand that doesn’t contain artificial ingredients, GMOs, gluten, dairy, and is also Organic is surprisingly tough! That is until I discovered Pure Bars.
With their entire line of bars and fruit snacks fitting the bill perfectly, Pure is truly something to feel good about! Best of all, kids can enjoy them too since they are not only free of many of the common allergens, they are also low in sugar and high in whole grains, fiber, vitamins and minerals, all things that kids don’t get enough of these days!
And besides being organic, vegan, raw, gluten-free, and non-GMO, Pure Bars truly do taste amazing! I’m personally obsessed with their Ancient Grain Bars (especially their new Peanut Butter Chocolate flavor). Hearty enough to keep you satisfied, but still only containing 160 calories and around 9 grams of fat, these bars are also full of fiber, protein and low in sugar, but taste like a candy bar. Soo good!
I must say their traditional Pure Bars are pretty darn good too though. With flavors like Banana Coconut and Chocolate Brownie, these bars can easily pass for a dessert, although their nutritional profile won’t have you feeling that way!
Try Pure for yourself and take a bite into a purely healthful life.
