The Hunt for a Kids Snack Bar

If you are reading this you most likely have some interest in living a healthy lifestyle. Well how about if your a parent and trying to give your kid or kids a healthy snack that doesn’t taste like sawdust or rubber.  I have been on the hunt for the top snack bars for your little ones. I have gone to all the most popular health foods stores to find the answer since most of us like to have the option of buying the snacks and trying them before we order a bulk load of the website or amazon.  So I had my son Jaxson try each bar give me some feedback. Yes, some got thrown right on the floor and others he gobbled up and called a “cooookkkiieee”. It is almost worth giving him a million bars because it is so cute when he says the word “cookie”.  I have posted some of his reactions on my instagram img_0064 (1)seefitliving if you want to check it out.

What was I looking for in the bar?

  • no or very little sugar
  • gluten free
  • organic or mostly organic ingredients
  • soy free
  • dairy free (but not limited to dairy free)
  • contains fruits and veggies

Now of course it is really hard to find a good bar that contains all of these qualities so I will post below some that come close to meeting all of these guidelines that my son or I would actually eat.  I did include some fruit snack strips in the list. Jax loves the Larabars  and it is nice because they now have some with sugar. The RX bar is similar to the larabar he liked all the flavors but the straight berry it is pretty intense. There are a ton of bars out there I recommend you check the sugar content if you don’t have to worry about any nut, soy or dairy allergies. I know its hard to be totally sugar free at times but it is nice to have the option when you can.

 

Why Acid Free Coffee and my new Milk Steamer

 

UnknownA lot of my clients drink coffee and have a serious addiction like most of the world. I definitely have my phases of being highly addicted to coffee. I love the process of making it, the treat and coziness of drinking coffee, my new milk steamer, sharing a special moment with someone over coffee and the list goes on.  I try to recommend to people to drink Acid Free coffee. WHY? Coffee is super acidic and can wreck havoc on your gut. It tears down the microvilli that protect your intestinal wall which protect you from getting leaky gut!! Another tip always add some kind of fat into your coffee. You can use cream, coconut oil, goats milk,  almond milk or coconut milk. There are tons of great creamers available that do not contain sugar or cows milk. So please try to buy acid free coffee to help protect your gut. On a side note I just purchased a Nespresso milk steamer and it has changed my world. The milk is so frothy and fluffy and yummy….. yes that is the best way to describe the experience 🙂
