I have been trying to get away from processed foods. I want to provide my family with healthy meals that not only taste good today but will benefit their development and choices in the future. We are eating more whole foods and I feel good about it. One thing I haven’t dived into until now is snack food. I learned about The Pure Bar recently because of an incredible contest they are holding. I’m so glad they got my attention because the Pure Bars are even more amazing than the contest (although I wouldn’t mind winning a trip to Costa Rica).
The Pure Bar Review
Pure Bar offers certified-organic snacks that are a natural, healthy choice. Pure Bars are gluten-free, raw, vegan, and vegetarian. Pure Bars contain omega-3s, low sodium, 4 g organic fiber, healthy antioxidants, and 1.5 servings of fruit. Pure Bars do NOT contain refined sugar, no artifical ingredients, no preservatives, no transfats, no cholesterol, no dairy, no gluten or soy, and no GMOs.
We are gradually going toward organic, all natural foods but it is a slow process. I admit that my husband and I were skeptical when we read the ingredients on the Pure Bars that we were sent. How good can a snack bar be with NO sugar? Seriously. With the right combination of fruits and nuts, it can be even better! Let me tell you that we were blown away with how incredible Pure Bars taste! Forget how healthy they are. Forget that I can read and understand every ingredient on the package. They taste marvelous!
We liked every single Pure Bar we tasted. Each was true to the flavors on the package. Lots and lots of flavor with the right amount of chewiness and perfect mix of fruits and nuts. Our #1 favorite was the chocolate brownie. It is the best, fudgiest dark chocolate brownie we’ve ever had. And by far it was the healthiest!
Okay, so let’s not actually forget how healthy Pure Bars are. I love how they list their ingredients on the front of the package because they have nothing to hide! After listing out the ingredients, the package reads “and that’s all!” Don’t you just love it!? You’d expect something at the end that you can’t understand or sugar or something! With Pure Bars, you can have delicious, sweet snacks that are healthy too.
