My family is always on the go, and while I am dropping one kid one place, and grabbing another kid from somewhere else. The term “stay at home mom” is a complete misnomer, because I spend more time in my van running from place to place. Add in the fact that I work from home between errands, playing with the kids, and pretending to clean, and finding time to eat right, sometimes to eat at all, is a luxury. It makes needing something that is easy to grab, that can actually give me the nutrition I need, vitally important.
I have mentioned in the past how much I love Balance Bars ®. They are a great nutrition bar that use a proven 40-30-30 principle, which is 40% of calories come from healthy carbohydrates, 30% from quality protein and 30% from dietary fat) to help stabilize blood sugar levels, satisfy hunger and provide lasting energy. And many of them taste like I am eating a candy bar. I love that I can feel like I am eating some junk food, while eating well. Plus, when my kids come home, so hungry they are ready to eat me out of house and home, which is most days, I can let them have a bar and their hunger is satisfied without all the crap.
For Valentine’s Day, Balance Bar ® is featuring these Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch and the new Chocolate Raspberry flavors. These bars are just as delicious as the rest of the bars that we have tried.
Right now, Balance Bras® is offering one lucky US reader the chance to win the fun Valentine’s Day special tin with a collection of the Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch and the Chocolate Raspberry.
