Before I get to the good stuff, thank you all so much for your supportive words on my first attempt at the sprint triathlon! It was an amazing experience. Like my first marathon, I had moments (mostly in the swim) where I thought I don’t ever need to do that again. But now I’m thinking about training for a half ironman… someday. 🙂
I’m linking up again with Jenn at Peas and Crayons for What I ate Wednesday. Here’s yesterday’s eats:
[Breakfast: 2 eggs (unpictured) and healthy banana bread; Snack: Green smoothie (yogurt, blueberries, banana, greens); Lunch: Leftover Black bean- sweet potato hash; veggies and bean dip; Snack: Apple and almond butter; Dinner: Black bean burger, quinoa salad, red beets; Snack: Popcorn with nutritional yeast and 1/2 grapefruit]
You may have noticed more Larabars in my WIAW posts the last few weeks. The lovely folks there sent me the new Uber bars as well as some of the fruity flavored Larabar options I had never tried (let’s be honest, I would never choose blueberry muffin on my own with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter Cookie varieties calling my name).
I tried the Blueberry Muffin, Apple Pie, Coconut Cream and Banana Bread Larabars, and as expected, they did not disappoint. If you’re new to Larabars, they are made with dried fruit and nuts with no added sugar. I haven’t found one I don’t like yet.
I was very curious to try their new Uber bars. The Uber bars are a chewier fruit and nut bar. The ingredients are similar to Larabars, but are chunkier and lightly sweetened with brown rice syrup and honey.
The Uber bar flavors are Cherry Cobbler, Roasted Nut Roll, Bananas Foster, and Apple Turnover. They are satisfying as a mid morning or mid afternoon snack, and are also very kid-friendly!
My absolute favorite was the Apple Turnover Uber bar. The sweet cinnamon, apple and nut combo was perfect. I enjoyed the others, although I’m not a big fan of anything banana flavored. You can learn more about their products on their website.
