Larabars Rock!
« on: May 22, 2009, 05:27:50 PM »
Okay, so another discovery today at Earth Fare. I was looking through all the different types of snack bars, and the Larabar was the only Paleo-friendly snack bar that I found. I only bought two since they were quite expensive, but I must say that it was worth the money. I ate a Cinnamon Roll Larabar and it truly tasted like heaven without the guilt! Of course I won't be eating these very often, but they are a delicious dessert alternative. Sometimes you just get tired of fruit and you need a bit of something different. Who else loves the Larabars?

I took several of them with me on a backpacking trip recently.  I thought they were tasty and will take them on my next trip, too.

If I remember right you live in the bay area as well. There are a couple of local companies that have paleo-friendly snacks bars. These snacks have saved me on long plane rides and vacations. You can find these products in the bay area at places like: Wholefoods, Berkeley Bowl, and I think Rainbow Grocery has them as well. They are not located with the snack bars but are in the "live food" section. Normally at the end of an isle. Other people that don't live here can order them online as well. I'll include links. They are a little expensive but worth it when you are somewhere that doesn't offer paleo food and you're hungry.

Not all of there bars and crackers these companies make are paleo-friendly but some of them are. I like these more than Larabars only because larabars are a little bit too sweet for me and make me crave more - I do love the way they taste though - especially the Cherry Pie bar  :)

One company is Lydia's Organics. My favorites are:
Tropical Mango Bar: bananas, coconut, mango, and pineapple.
Raspberry Bar: bananas, coconut, raspberry, sprouted flax.
Spirulina Bars: this one is good because it has more protein than the others - Bananas, coconut, sprouted almonds, sprouted sunflower seeds, dates, sprouted flax, spirulina
(all ingredients are organic)

Another company is: goraw. My favorites are:
Banana Bread Flax Bar: Sprouted Organic Flax Seeds, Organic Banana, Organic Coconut (Unsulphured)Organic Date
Real Live Flax Bar: Sprouted Organic Flax Seeds, Organic Apricot, Organic Raisin, Organic Date, Organic Lime Juice
and the best treat are their Ginger Snaps: Organic Coconut, (Unsulphured) Sprouted Organic Sesame Seeds, Organic Date, Organic Ginger

If you try them, let me know what you think  ;D

I wish I lived in the Bay area! I live in Charlotte, NC so I have to make do with what's available around here. I appreciate the information!  ;)
