I like to eat. However, I can be lazy and rarely cook. I make pasta, quinoa, eggs, pancakes, etc. It has to be easy with very few ingredients. I told you I was lazy. I also like to snack. I know it isn’t healthy but many times I crave something salty and spicy. My favorite is potato chips with hot sauce. No wonder I cannot lose weight!! Sometimes I also crave something sweet.
It was during this summer that I first heard about Health Warrior Chia Bars. I believe it was before my trip to Alaska. I didn’t think about it anymore and then just completely forgot about them till about sometime in October when the opportunity arose to try them out. Sign me up!
Health Warrior makes Chia Bars, Pumpkin Seed Bars, and Chia Protein Bars. I received two different flavors of the Chia Bars – Apple Cinnamon and Dark Chocolate. What makes these so great and healthy? They’re gluten free, soy free, dairy free, 100% vegan, and non-GMO. Plus they’re only 110 calories, have 4-5 grams of sugar, 4 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein, and 1100 mg of Omega-3.
I first tried the dark chocolate. I liked that it wasn’t too sweet but yet it was enough to satisfy me. I finished it in 3 bites.
Next I tried the Apple Cinnamon and also liked that one too. This one had pieces of apples. Again, 3 bites later and it was gone.
I realize that they’re meant to be eaten as a snack but I think these should be a bit bigger. 🙂 Also, I know chia seeds tend to get stuck in your teeth (dislike it when that happens). However, I found that that was not the case with these bars.
I enjoy eating one or two of these after school. I eat lunch at 11:30 am and am done with school at 3:00 pm. You bet that afterwards I am hungry. Depending on the day I either have a meeting, stay late to grade papers, or have Math Club on Thursday.
Something else I received with the Chia Bars is a Marathon Training Coloring Book. I like to color but don’t always make the time for it. I laughed when I checked out each page because I could relate to many of the pictures in the book.
The Chia Bars come in 9 flavors: Acai Berry, Apple Cinnamon, Banana Nut, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coconut, Dark Chocolate Cherry, Dark Chocolate, Vanilla Almond, and Mango.
