Thanks to LÄRABAR for sponsoring today's discussion!
Since I have gotten into weight loss, food has become so much more interesting to me. I am constantly looking at the back of food labels to see what exactly is in my food. I always try to see what certain ingredients are if I don't recognize them. It has become quite interesting to learn what they fill our food with sometimes and can be a little scary since a lot of it isn't even food. Well, I won't go into too much detail about the epidemic on the food industry, but I do want to talk about the amazing company of LÄRABAR. It was first started by Lara Merriken who was wanting some sort of food to take with her while she was out hiking that was whole clean delicious ingredients that were good for you. She came up with the LÄRABAR and has created tons of flavors using simple clean ingredients.
I have tried several of the LÄRABAR flavors and each one tastes amazing. So far, my favorite has been the Blueberry Muffin one and Apple Pie. My kids loved the Peanut Butter and Jelly one which is a huge win in my book! I just love that they are clean snacks that taste amazing! They are gluten-free and have fruits, nuts and spices with some flavors including coconut oil, chocolate chips, and simple ingredients. All the of the LÄRABAR include less than 9 ingredients. I love that! There is no guilt and you get are getting great nutrition! I love taking these bars with me on a hike up in the mountains where I can see the beautiful scenery and have a little snack along the way. I am so excited because National Hike Day is coming up on November 17th and hiking has been a huge part of my weight loss journey! I have been hiking all over the state of Utah and for me it doesn't even feel like exercising because the views are beautiful. I always get a great calorie burn and I just feel really happy being in nature.

They also have amazing and healthy granola products called RENOLA! I love that they taste great without all the sugar. Granola is such a great little snack to have at any time of the day to give you that extra boost of energy, but a lot of times they have so many additives and usually they aren't even healthy! I love the RENOLA because they are aiming to reinvent granola. Each RENOLA is grain-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free! I LOVED the berry flavor. It was really tasty! You have to try it! I would love to have it on top of some greek yogurt.
Now the fun part! LÄRABAR has offered to give one of my readers some LÄRABAR (16 bars) and RENOLA! Please answer the following question in a comment on this post and I will pick a winner next Sunday! Good Luck!
