Part of developing a healthier lifestyle is making healthy choices in terms of breakfast items (after all, there is a reason why they say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day!) and snacks. While it is easy to find a lot of low-calorie packaged snacks, many of them have empty calories. The key is choosing a snack that has substance and nutritional value!
I’ve been a fan of Nature’s Path for a long time because I think they make high-quality products that are delicious as well as nutritious!
So when I had the chance to try Nature’s Path’s Love Crunch (what a cute name!) granola and cereal bars, how could I refuse?
Oh, and I was so glad that I tried them! When the Love Crunch cereal arrived, everyone in the house was all over it! I absolutely love the Aloha Blend because it combines a bunch of my favourite things! Chock full of pineapple, coconut, white chocolate chunks (yes, you read that right…white chocolate chunks! White chocolate is my favourite!) and a tasty granola. It makes an excellent snack! That being said, I haven’t been able to eat very much because the girls like it too!
And Grownup Girl decided that Carrot Cake was her favourite so it got spirited away when I wasn’t looking! She loves carrot cake and she said that the cereal, which combines organic pecans, carrot, pineapple, raisins, cinnamon and organic yogurt chips was absolutely amazing (I believe her – I’m going to buy myself a bag because it sounds so good!).
We also tried a number of the different granola bars. I was surprised because my favourite was the Macaroon Crunch! I was surprised that I liked the flavour (I mean – it’s chocolate and coconut – that’s a no-brainer!). Generally, however, I don’t like dark chocolate. In the Macaroon Crunch granola bars, however, it added a deeper level of flavour to the bars. I’m hooked!
The girls really liked the Apple Pie Crunch Chia Plus granola bars. Little One said she liked them because they taste like apple pie (just as the name suggests!) while Miss Eight (who actually doesn’t like pie – go figure!) said she liked them because “they really taste like apples”. Both the girls absolutely adore fruit, so I wasn’t surprised!
I’m really glad that we tried Nature’s Path granola and cereal bars because we’ve found some products that I know are healthy AND that everyone enjoys (which is easier said that done!)!
