New Snack In The Stash

Do you remember the summer goal I started this month? Well anytime I finish a fun I feel like I'm close to starving. You should see me when I enter my house. I'm grabbing for anything that I can get my hands on, several things at once ... digging in the cereal box, unwrapping slices of cheese, reaching for this morning's left over turkey bacon, you name it. It's really a sight to see and I often end up eating crap that makes me feel like my run was sabotaged by the goulash of processed carbs and high fructose corn syrup that I devoured in 15 seconds flat. All of this brings me to my new love, Larabars.

A Larabar is my saving grace after a run. It's the "original" fruit and nut food bar and what you see is what you get! Check the ingredients list to the left (dates, almonds, pecans, ginger, cinnamon & cloves). That's it! I've tried several flavors and they are all delicious. Have you ever looked at the ingredients list on some of the other fruit or energy bars? Good golly miss molly ... the list is the length of my arm. Although a bit pricey, I'm pretty pleased. Around my way they are priced anywhere from $1.19 - $1.69 each. Regardless, I'm happy to include them in my go to stash for snacks.
