Chia ~ the ultimate superfood! Just over the last few weeks I have kept it right on my counter in a container so that I can add to anything – my smoothies, yogurts, salads, even sprinkled on my ice cream. I need to get some nutrition in my dessert right?
Health Warrior was born because that is what you can turn into by the power of the Chia. Really! Take it regularly and you will find yourself feeling stronger, working harder, and having more energy.
Flavors I received ~ Banana Nut, Apple & Cinnamon, Coconut & Acai Berry. There is actually a Coffee flavor too that I didn’t receive. Didn’t they know who they were sending these too?! hee hee.
Each small bar contains…
1000mg Omega 3
4g dietary fiber
3g plant-based protein
5 critical antioxidants
Gluten, dairy and soy free. 100% vegan. 100% natural.
I saw small because they are the smallest bar I’ve seen, but I LOVE that. A few bites to give me the energy I need to stay on track for the rest of the day without being hungry. They are Yum!
Keep up with Health Warrior on Facebook!
I think that I may be the last one on the planet to try KIND Snack Bars.
First of all I love their name. “do the KIND thing for your body, your tastebuds and the world.” I quite agree.
Now for the variety? 22 KINDS of bars! This is great because I love any of the chocolate ones (of course!) and Hubby does not like any chocolate (blah!) so we’ve been having fun eating and comparing.
Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew, Blueberry Pecan, Almond & Coconut, Fruit & Nuts in Yogurt ~ just to name a few!
All-natural whole nuts, fruits and whole grains. No secret ingredients and absolutely nothing artificial here. Just a delicious way of getting your body essential nutrients like fiber, protein and antioxidants (to name a few).
Any of you who LOVES nut mixes has to try these KIND bars. I knew they would be good, but really they are GOOD. I planned on eating half a one the first time I opened a bar, but no. It went down way to easy. Yum!
Win a case of KIND bars on their Facebook page!
