What we put into our bodies can have a great effect on our inner well being as well as our outer beauty. So it is important for us to know what we are feeding our bodies so that we can remain in good health. Lately, I have been trying to put forth an effort to eat natural and organic foods, but I find that I am always on the lookout for foods that are healthy but don’t require me to sacrifice taste. Last month I received a Larabar in my Influenster Voxbox and I loved it so much. The taste was amazing! The ingredients were fresh and I felt full after eating one bar. What I didn’t know at the time were all of the benefits of these little bars!
Larabar believes that the foundation of a sound mind, body and spirit is derived from what we eat, and when we eat food in its natural state, we are able to get all of the needed nutrients to keep us healthy and beautiful. And when I tell you these bars are packed full of good for you ingredients I mean it. Unlike other health bars that contain ingredients we can’t even pronounce, each Larabar is packed with a delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices. What is even better each bar contains no more than nine ingredients! This was a huge plus for me because I really hate to pick up a “health” bar, flip over the package and see that there is a long list of ingredients that I can’t even pronounce.
For example here is the ingredients list of my normal health bar:

See how the box says Strawberry NutriGrain bar? Well it took a while for me to even find the ingredient strawberry puree concentrate on the box. Seriously, you give it a try, how many times before you finally located the ingredient strawberry puree concentrate. This bar taste fine but I would have rather had real strawberries as one of the first ingredients.
Now take a look at the ingredients list for the Cherry Pie Larabar.
You saw that correctly, 3 simple ingredients! There is absolutely zero guess work with Larabar! I even did a taste test with my family and they loved them. My dad, who is a true fan of the other brand health bar mentioned earlier, said that he would never buy any other brand health bar after trying Larabar. He even stole the samples I was kindly sent! Because my entire family is committed to getting healthy this year, I will continue to purchase these bars in the future. The taste is incomparable and for only $15 for a box of 16 bars on Amazon, it’s safe to say we are never turning back to processed snack bars.
