Sometimes I don’t have a recipe, I just want to shout out about great vegan products out there. Products you will want to try, products you will love.
Today it’s all about Natural Balance Foods Nākd Bars. There are a lot of snack bars out there but if you read the labels, you will see that many of them, despite calling themselves “healthy,” have some questionable ingredients. And a ton of them at that. My personal issue with most bars is that they taste way too sweet for me and since I don’t really like sweets, my tolerance for it is low. But Nākd Bars are different. They only have about 6 ingredients and no added sugar! As they say, their bars are “nuts and raw fruit smooshed together.”
Natural Balance Foods have been making healthy wholefood products since 2004. They wanted to make snacks that are not only healthy but delicious. Nākd is a whole range of cereal bars and snacks that meet both those goals. Natural Balance Foods really cares about helping people look good and feel good while eating foods that taste good.
Nākd Bars are low in fat, vegan, gluten-free and contain ingredients you can feel good about eating. There are no artificial flavors. They have natural flavors such as spices and extracts from bananas, apples, strawberries, rhubarb, nuts, cocoa and other wholefoods.
* All the bars do contain nuts so read those labels carefully if you have allergies.
Nākd Fruit and Nut Bars are completely wheat, dairy and gluten-free. So what do they taste like? Well, they are soft and chewy and you can actually taste the fruits and nuts.
There are a lot of flavors to choose from: Cocoa Mint, Cocoa Orange, Pecan Pie, Ginger Bread, Cocoa Delight, Cashew Cookie, Cafe Mocha, Rhubarb Custard and Berry Delight.
Nākd Crunch Bars have all the same delicious fruit and nuts plus an added crunch from soy crunchies. They have extra protein so they keep you fueled even longer. They come in Strawberry Crunch, Banana Crunch, Apple Crunch and Cocoa Crunch.
If you’re not sure which flavor you want (and obviously it’s hard to choose from so many amazing flavors), you can buy mixed boxes. There are Nākd Sampler Cases, Nākd Crunch Cases, Chocolovers Case and a mixed case with some of everything!
Nākd Bars are really delicious and from me, that’s saying a lot because I usually don’t like bars. But Nākd are not too sweet and they just taste pure and healthy. I love taking them with me for snacks or when I need a pick-me-up and don’t want more coffee.
If you’re looking for a snack that’s healthy and delicious, you should definitely order some Nākd Bars. They also have a Community on their web site that you can join. There you can find great info on healthy living, dietary needs, fitness, recipes and more.
