Be Kind to yourself, eat non-processed food.

Kind bars.

My latest product obsession. Kind bars. Maybe I’m a little late on the Kind bar train, but these bars have been my favorite go-to breakfast or snack item. Although they are 200 calories a pop, it’s the real stuff. And by that I mean it’s a whole food bar with no processed ingredients, just 100% real food.

When you bite into your “energy bar” each morning, you might want to take a look at the sugar count and perhaps the ingredient list. If there are items on the ingredient list that you can’t pronounce, it’s probably not healthiest thing you can put in your body. And that is exactly why I prefer Kind bars. Instead of all the sugary processed bars that are available everywhere, I look for Kind bars for a wholesome and filling breakfast. Also, the bars are gluten free, contain no trans fats and are low sodium. What’s not to love?

My personal favorite is the peanut butter dark chocolate. Since I’m a chocolate addict, it’s nice to get the healthier type of chocolate (the darker the chocolate, the better) mixed with peanut butter and a whole slew of different types of nuts. Inside this bar you get seven grams of protein and you get the awesome flavor. My only complaint? It’s kind of hard to bite into.

My next favorite: the cranberry almond.

The cranberry almond. If I’m not feeling my sweet tooth early in the morning, I love the flavor combo of dried cranberry paired with almonds. This bar is 190 calories (not that I really pay much attention to the calorie count on these bars since I know I’m getting the good stuff regardless) and is full of antioxidants and fiber.

Thanks for reading my product review–now go out there and give these guys a try!

    Thanks for the suggestion! Where can I find them?

    The older I get the more I realize that when I eat well, I feel well and vice versa (and the vice versa is unfortunate because I do happen to love anything smothered in cheese…pizza, cheeseburgers, Snuffer’s cheese fries…)

    This sounds like a great “good for you” meal on the go – and those are hard to find! I look forward to trying them!

    of course! I’ve found them at Whole Foods, Central Market…I think you could probably find them even at drugstores.

    And very true about eating well to feel well. And I agree! It’s hard to find a bar that isn’t overpowering and is actually just real food. Not a bunch of overprocessed junk claiming to be “healthy”. Let me know what you think of them!

    I’m actually going to be at Central Market in the morning so I’ll be sure to pick some up. Thanks!!!!
