I am pleased to announce our next sponsor for my Mad About Mama Mother's Day event, the GoodOnYa Bar! I was thrilled when I got the chance to work with this San Diego based company who strives to promote healthy, green living by providing wholesome, organic, and TASTY alternatives to candy and other not so healthy grab-and-go snacks. As a mom with way too much on my plate at times, I know how easy it can be to grab the quickest, easiest snack available when hunger calls.... I usually try my best to keep my diet healthy, but when I am out and about, this isn't always easy. I mean, I can't just carry a salad around in my purse when I am running errands or taking the kids to the pediatrician's office. And some of those so-called healthy snack bars are anything but! Have you ever stopped to read the ingredients in even that very popular fruit and cereal bar you find in the breakfast aisle? You know the bar I mean, but it shall remain nameless to protect the guilty, lol...Next time you're shopping, just take a look at how many ingredients are listed that you can't even pronounce. These ingredients are not organic, and are anything but natural. As a matter of fact, these bars and others like them contain very limited real nutritional value. They even include many fillers, like puffed whole wheat. Not that they're necessarily BAD for you. They're just full of...well, nothing. Fillers add weight to the bars and extend the product's yield, but they don't extend the important proteins and nutrients our bodies need as fuel.
The GoodOnYa Bar's founder, an Olympic athlete, Kris Fillat, recognized this problem and has created a truly organic, healthy snack bar that includes NO FILLERS of any kind, and utilizes only the highest quality raw and natural products, such as organic honey, flax seed, and Valencia peanuts. These bars may look smaller than some of their competitors, but they actually weigh MORE and provide a protein packed punch that will keep you going throughout your busy day.... Without having to grab a candy bar or stop at a fast food establishment. And did I mention, they taste GOOD?
Here are the flavors they currently offer:
The Breakfast Bar
In a word, amazing! The ingredients in this bar are so unique, and the nutritional profile so wonderful that we have to boast just a bit. We didn't set out to make a high fiber bar. We simply combined healthy superfoods that tasted great together. When we got the nutritional analysis back we were shocked. 28% of the daily recommended allowance of fiber in just one bar. Now we don't subscribe totally to the USDA food pyramid but we do know that unprocessed, live, organic foods are what we should be eating, so that's what we are about! You can buy Fruit Loops with added fiber! Yeah, right! And don't be afraid of the fat. Read the Fat vs. Sugar document, you will be happily surprised to know you don't have to skimp on your favorite foods! Obviously what we are doing in this country isn't working. It's time to rethink things! We have done that with our bars.
Peanut Butter Honey
The best peanut butter in the world comes from New Mexico. Valencia peanuts are smaller, sweeter and they grow in a very dry climate. This means that the mold, aflatoxin that is an allergy and carcinogen, isn't present in our peanut butter. We love peanut butter and we know you love it, so we searched out the best! Combine that with raw, organic honey, flax and sesame and you are in for one protein packed, tasty treat. It's time to love peanuts again, in fact it's all about love!
Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate
Well, seriously. It's peanut butter, it's chocolate, it's kind of a no brainer! However there are ways to make this classic combination right! Start with the best peanut butter in the world (see above), 70% dark chocolate, raw honey and now you are talking about a healthy version of what I dreamed of getting at every house on Halloween! Cold milled flax, sesame, vanilla.....we are not kidding around here, we care about what we are doing, and we care about you!
Don't these just sound delicious?! The very generous folks at GoodOnYa care about what you are eating. During my Mad About Mama event, GoodOnYa will be offering one of my US readers the opportunity to try all 3 flavors for themselves! How cool is that?!
