I feel like even with all of the trips I’ve been taking lately, I’ve actually stuck with my new year’s resolutions much more successfully than I have in the past. I’ve been going to the gym 3+ times a week, eating more vegetables and protein (this salmon recipe is amazing!), and, other than all of the Bloody Marias I drank to keep warm in NYC this weekend, I really haven’t been overindulging in alcohol.
But where I have the hardest time keeping myself on the healthy track is when it comes to snacking. If you were to put a family size bag of Smartfood popcorn in front of me, there’s a good chance that I could get through an impressive amount while watching The Bachelor. And I’ve found that even some of my favorite breakfast bars have an impressive amount of preservatives and other ingredients that I don’t believe to be healthy for the body in the long run. Luckily for me, our friends at Natural Balance Foods have just the solution for us—Nākd Bars.
Natural Balance Foods is a young British company that understands that millennials are always on the go and because of that need a quick and easy (not to mention healthy and delicious!) snack to keep us going. Between running from work, to the gym, and then to a friend’s apartment, I’ve always got a million things on my mind and so having a Nākd Bar in my purse is the perfect snack to keep me from mindlessly snacking.
These bars are a yummy blend of fruit and nuts and are even gluten, wheat, and dairy free, so it’s perfect for everyone, no matter what your diet may be! Plus I love that the bars can satisfy my sweet tooth without any added sweeteners or sugars! Nākd Bars truly let the delicious flavors found in nature shine through. Natural snacks for the win!
My favorite flavor is definitely the Apple Crunch and my boyfriend is such a huge fan of the Cocoa Crunch, that he even went back for another bar after finishing his first!
What are your tips for healthy snacking/living? Along with my Nākd bars, I always make sure to carry around a liter bottle to make sure that I’m drinking enough water everyday!
