Having three young children and working two jobs makes it difficult to eat healthy sometimes. About a year ago, I had to take a step back and reevaluate what I was eating to fuel my busy days. While eating organic and natural was always a top priority, these foods aren’t always created with nutritious and wholesome ingredients. For this reason, I have since tried to incorporate only “real” food into my diet, leaving behind the processed snacks and foods. Afternoons were my main time of struggle, where I would often grab the easiest snacks available like a handful of pretzels, crackers, or some other type of empty calorie snack. These would give me a quick spike of energy but would later again leave me dragging. I now reach for healthy fruits/veggies, nuts/seeds, or a bar rich in fiber and protein. One of my top choices for a healthy on-the-go bar is Health Warrior Chia Bars.
Health Warrior Chia Bars are available in several delicious flavors like Dark Chocolate, Coconut, and Chocolate Peanut Butter. They have the perfect texture and chewiness with just a hint of sweetness. I love that they are the perfect grab-and-go size so they can be stashed away in a pocket, purse, or lunch bag for a quick snack whenever you may need it.
When searching for a snack bar, I look for several features including protein, fiber, and sugar content. Each of these GMO-free bars have at least 3 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and only 4 to 5 grams of sugar, which means I am left energized and satisfied until my next meal. Additionally, the bars are gluten, soy, and dairy free, making them an ideal choice for those following a plant based diet.
What sets Health Warrior bars apart from other products is their main ingredient: chia seeds. This tiny superfood seed is packed with amazing health benefits. Chia seeds are loaded with with calcium, iron and antioxidants, while also containing a substantial amount of omega-3. Chia seeds naturally have a unique feature that causes them to absorb water and swell up. This swelling helps to keep you full and satisfied, which is another reason why Health Warrior Chia Bars are a great choice for an afternoon pick-me-up snack.
Of the three Health Warrior Chia Bar varieties I have tried (Coconut, Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter), it’s hard to choose a favorite. I am however a huge fan of anything coconut so I tend to lean towards that particular flavor. With a subtle coconut taste and chewy texture, it’s a satisfying treat to get me through my day. The dark chocolate is another delicious flavor with just the right amount of dark chocolate chips studded throughout the bar. There is no question peanut butter and chocolate make a great combination, and when in a chia bar, they’re perfection. This bar reminds me of my childhood favorite candy, peanut butter cups, but without all the unhealthy ingredients.
Health Warrior Chia Bars are packed with both flavor and nutrition. I highly recommend these bars for anyone looking for a delicious superfood bar! Head over to healthwarrior.com to shop now and save with special discount code peaceloveorganicmom30!
