As you may have guessed by now, I am pretty adamant about eating healthy and living well. This is important to me not just for my own health but the health of my entire family. I am always searching for new healthy foods and protein bars are especially on my radar. As a mom of little ones, I am constantly on the go, practically living off protein bars for breakfast or snacks. They are great to keep you going when you have a ton of errands to run!
I am so excited to share with you all about thinkThin® Protein and Crunch bars. Whether your choose to go with the protein or crunch bars you can’t go wrong. thinkThin® Protein bars are made with 0g sugar, 20g protein, and are gluten free! thinkThin® Crunch bars are made with 60% less sugar and 2x more protein than leading fruit and nut bars, also gluten free!
Honestly, I was not sure what I thought about 0g of sugar. I am a southern tea drinking, sweet tooth, kinda girl. But, like I tell my children, you have to try something before you can judge it. A little insight into me, I am a white chocolate fanatic, from candy bars to my latte. Naturally, I chose the “White Chocolate dipped mixed nuts” thinkThin® crunch bar to try first.
First off, I loved how I could see the nuts, they weren’t hiding or so finely chopped that I had to wonder if they were really there. Secondly, I had this after a Zumba workout at the gym and it definitely silenced my roaring appetite. I usually eat light before Zumba, and by the time I get home I feel ravenous. This bar was not only delicious but it hit the spot for sure.
The other day, I was out running errands (shocker!) and threw the thinkThin® Blueberry crunch bar in the diaper bag. I knew I would eventually get hungry and sure enough it hit me when I was driving from one store to another. Of course I forgot I had it with me and started thinking I should grab something at the next store. Thankfully, I remembered I had it! It satisfied my hunger pains and I felt good knowing I had something healthy to snack on.
My favorite protein bar was the thinkThin® Creamy Peanut Butter. I definitely put it to the test this past weekend with my daughter’s 6th birthday party. I was busy with planning, hosting, and losing my mind! I grabbed the bar and with 20g of protein, I felt full and ready to take on my daughter’s birthday party.
thinkThin® also has a brownie crunch bar which came in a close second for me. Brownies are one of my favorite desserts, and well anything else chocolate! I love eating something that is not only good for me but makes me feel like I also treated myself. What more could a girl want?
