I can’t be the only one craving s’mores this summer! Before I even knew there was a national holiday celebrating the ooey, gooey treat, I was telling my husband how I would REALLY love to bite into a s’more sometimes soon. The only problem is the complete and total lack of nutritional value in these treats! I’ll cheat from time to time just like the next woman, but what if I could get the same satisfaction out of something without the excess sugar and calories? Luckily, I know just the thing!
Balance Bar stands out from other nutrition or “meal replacement” bars for me because they are one of the few that doesn’t taste like cardboard! (the only other brand I’ve enjoyed for its flavor are my Nutrisystem bars). They pack SO much flavor into these little bars and I’m still trying to wrap my mind around how they possibly fit so many good for you vitamins and grams of protein into something that tastes JUST like a candy bar!
So what is SO good about a Balance Bar? Well, this yummy S’mores bar has 14g of protein, a whopping 23 vitamins and minerals, 7g of fat (can you believe that? With all the chocolate flavor here, I had to read that one twice!) and only 200 calories. The best part about these 200 filling calories is that they are perfectly portioned using Balance Bars’ 40-30-30 nutritional ration. By that they mean that all 200 of these calories come from needed sources and they leave NO room for empty calories in their bars. You get 40% of the calories from carbs, 30% from protein and 30% from dietary far. It’s one thing to see a great treat with great numbers to back it up but I love how much thought really went into making each Balance Bar!
