The Healthy Snack Bar That Has Become My New Go-To
Over the last few months, I've allowed myself some leeway when it comes to my diet. It started off as a comfort thing, then with working from home, snacking in between meals started to become a part of my routine. Snacking isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it got to the point where I was eating chocolate donuts with my lunch every day, and chips right after dinnertime. Not ideal.
It wasn't long till I started to see the effects on my body. Not only did I gain some weight, but I started to feel a lot more sluggish. I tried to introduce more fruits and vegetables into my diet, but they never filled me or curbed my cravings. I looked into some food bars, thinking that they would be a healthier option, but I was shocked to see they mostly have the same amount of sugar as candy bars, or artificial sweeteners that are bad for you.
When complaining to my friend Emily, she suggested I check out Paleovalley's Superfood Bars. She uses Paleovalley's apple cider vinegar capsules and says it's helped her a lot, and recently tried their snack bars and said they might be a healthy option for me. They contain collagen which is really good for anti-aging.
Collagen in a bar?! Sounded a little weird if you ask me, but Emily insisted that I had to try them. I went to check them out and saw that they came in two flavors: Apple Cinnamon and Chocolate. I was surprised to see how many superfoods were in these bars, and the possible benefits they have.
Turns out, collagen is beneficial to your digestion, too. And the bars have a lot of other nutritious organic superfoods such as kale, broccoli, spinach, acerola, wild blueberry, spirulina, ginger, turmeric, Himalayan pink sea salt, rosemary extract, and monk fruit extract, to name just a few!
These bars are definitely healthy, but they have no added or refined sugar and are sweetener-free, so I doubted they'd taste nice. But if I could use these as a snack replacement, it would be a game-changer for me, so I ordered a box of each flavor to try them.
The delivery arrived promptly in a few days, and I couldn't wait to try the bars. In between my breakfast and lunch, when I usually grab some biscuits, I tried the Paleovalley Apple Cinnamon Superfood Bar, and I couldn't believe how much I liked the taste. It wasn't too heavy like most food bars, but it was still really satisfying and tasted yummy.
I had to look at the ingredients on the package again to believe that all these great ingredients were in it: cashew butter, organic tapioca fiber syrup, 100% grass-fed bone broth protein, organic dried apples, organic dates, and organic pumpkin seeds. After this, I didn't snack till lunch! Success.
That evening after dinner, I had a sweet tooth so I went to try the Paleovalley Chocolate Superfood Bar. Again, it was delicious and thanks to the cocoa powder it tasted chocolatey, so it satisfied my craving while still giving me the good nutrients and superfoods.
Needless to say, I kept eating these bars when craving a snack and it wasn't long till my first two boxes were empty. Thankfully, with Paleovalley you can get great discounts if you subscribe or buy in bulk. I bought 6 boxes and got an 18% discount, each box costs only $30.99.
Now I've been stocked up with healthy snacks for weeks, and I can feel the difference. Not only am I not eating unhealthy snacks, I have more energy now thanks to all the superfoods in Paleovalley's Bars.
If you're interested in finding a healthy yet satisfying snack, I'd highly recommend Paleovalley's Superfood Bars. They're gluten-free, grain-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and contain healthy proteins, fats, grass-fed & finished collagen, and vital nutrients, but taste delish.
