These Summer months have me crawling all over the place and being a health conscious vegan most of the time. (Let’s not forget my weakness for crispy tater tots… oh and that vodka vice too.) I want to make sure I am still able to slip into my cutoffs without any anxiety. Many times I begin my day in the wee hours of dawn and don’t make my way to my mattress until around the same time. If I’m not careful, I can forget to get the all- important nutrients my body needs for this hectic schedule or I will indulge in convenient bites that aren’t good for my body or waistline.
So what does this clunky in the kitchen broad do?
I throw a couple of delicious baked Gnu Foods bars into my tote and nosh as I make my way through the day. Brilliantly SIMPLE. I have had my fair share of chalky bars that taste like a mixture of odd chemicals and odd flavor mixtures, but Gnu bars are 100% natural and do not contain any artificial additives. These little wonders also have 12 grams of Fiber which help to create a sensation of fullness, so I have noticed I graze less throughout the day.
Here are a few of my favorite flavors!
All of the Gnu flavors are vegan with the exception of the Blondie Bar.
The six natural whole grains in Gnu Bars are rich in beneficial nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients as well as rich in Fiber. All bars are between 130-140 calories and provide nearly 50% of your daily fiber too! And, let’s keep it real…we all know what fiber helps us do. Yup.
If you’re curious to try Gnu for yourself, take advantage of this five Bar Sampler offer. You can try any combination of their 10 flavors for only $7.95 with FREE shipping.
Let me know what your favorite flavors end up being and if you noticed any revelations with your “system” since trying Gnu out. Don’t be shy Stella Shoppers!
