Hello everyone, there is a special offer just for you at the end of this post, so keep reading for a clean and tasty discount! I can’t believe how busy life is right now, do you feel like this too? Some weeks just seem to be packed with so many things that I feel a bit dizzy if I stop to think about it all! You know I say that homemade food is always best, but thank goodness us busy people can also rely on other brands that care about our health, and make lovely clean products that we can buy when we need to.
How does a tasty, organic, raw, handmade, clean protein bar sound to you? It sounded good to me, so I could not wait to try these new bars from BodyMe as I loved their organic acai berry powder that I used in my acai berry bowl or the insane chocolate and orange cake. There are three different flavour protein bars to choose from – cacao orange, chia vanilla and cacao mint.
They sounded lovely but as always, I checked the ingredients to make sure there were no nasties lurking in there, and was very happy to only find clean, vegan ingredients in all of them. These include pea/rice/hemp protein, cacao nibs, cashews, dates, coconut oil and chia seeds.
Now you might think that you don’t want a protein bar if you are not pumping iron at the gym, but eating something high in protein is good for everyone because that is what fills you up the most when you are hungry. You won’t suddenly turn into Arnie overnight! These bars have 16g of protein, which is very high for a bar that doesn’t contain whey protein powder. I have tried whey protein bars in the past and they are usually stuffed with lots of artificial everything, as well as tasting sickly sweet, yuk!
So let us get back to the taste. The first thing I noticed about the bars is that they are a lovely big size, so you might find that you eat half and feel satisfied enough to leave the other half for the next day. The caca orange has orange oil in it, so the taste is of real oranges, nothing artificial. You get a lovely crunch from the cacao nibs and the chocolatey orange flavour of the whole bar is scrumptious.
The chia vanilla is different in that the vanilla is very subtle, so it is perfect if you like your flavours to be more gentle. The chia seeds gave a little crunch with every bite, so it was very satisfying to eat. The cacao mint is perfect if you love fresh, minty flavours and this comes from the peppermint oil. Chocolate and mint is always a tasty combination, so add in the crunchy cacao nibs and I was in heaven.
These bars are perfect for keeping in your bag, desk or when you fancy something clean, sweet and tasty. You could have them before working out, if you are on the run at lunchtime or for an after dinner treat. Seriously guys, they are so filling that I bet you will only eat half anyway, which makes them last even longer!
