No, just kidding. Well, kind of. Not those bars (although I’ll probably get dragged into some of those this weekend) THESE bars!
Normally, my dear mother puts candy in our stocking, but being the awesome woman that she is, she bought me things I’d actually eat 😉
First up: A Luna Bar!
I’d never actually had a Luna Bar before. Crazy, right? I know. Normally I’m all like “ohhh no! 180 calories? That’s just toooo many” but these days, I’m torching calories, so bring on the delicious snacks! Ha, but really, this was great because my tummy was growling at 4:30, and this kept me nice and happy until dinner (which wasn’t consumed until several hours later.) That said, I still prefer a huge bowl of veggies or soup or something instead of a little bar, but when you’re hungry, these babies hit the spot.
This morning, I rolled my butt out of bed at 5:30 to meet my friend at the gym for Body Pump. I was entirely too perky at 6am, (sorry, Brett) but I was pumped after snacking on this Pure Bar (again, a delicious stocking stuffer.)
Ohhh my goodness it was so freaking delicious. AND it kept me fueled for the long workout. Seriously this thing was good. It didn’t really taste like a brownie (even though it was the chocolate brownie flavor) but it was delish.
That chocolate kick continued all morning. When I got home from the gym, I made some chocolate banana soft serve in the Vita. YUM. What a fantastic way to start the day!
Anyone have a favorite bar? I STILL haven’t gotten around to trying Larabars. I definitely want to give those a shot. I’m looking for suggestions!
