Raising the (Protein) Bar

Boy oh boy!! I quickly ran drove home over my lunch break to grab some chicken and rice, and much to my surprise, there were packages on my doorstep! YEEEEHAW!!! Of course, I busted those bad boys right open. Teri Jo from Amazing Grass was kind enough to send me a plethora of samples! Thank you so much, Teri Jo!! I can't wait to try them all out. You should have seen my eyes light up when I discovered bars in the mix! What perfect timing! I need a quickie meal replacement.

Naturally, I chose the Organic Green SuperFood Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein bar to try first. In my opinion, you just simply can not go wrong with the peanut butter chocolate flavor combo! Now, for me, this bar is a meal replacement. It's a hefty bar with the nutritional stats to prove it.

Anything that is between 200-300 cals is a meal in my book. I guess that's what happens when you eat a billion times a day! ;)

Now, I'm not afraid to admit... I'm a bit of a bar junky. I have tried SO MANY, and I do have my favorites. Well, this is a new favorite! It's coated with organic chocolate and filled with green, yes GREEN, chewy peanutbuttery goodness.

While I enjoy bars in general, my huge deterrent from eating them constantly is most of them are chemical laden processed crap, covered in fake chocolate. Tasty? Maybe, but not exactly health food. This bar is actually chock full of healthy goodness. Just check out the ingredient list!
