So need I say more. I don't know if you guys have ever had a Larabar or not but I kind of just stumbled across them and I thought I need to give these a try.
The store bought ones can be a little pricey and also if you make them yourself you know they'll be a lot fresher.
Now I get sometimes you just need the convenience of something you can grab at the store if your're in need of a quick snack...been there, many a times.
Although I don't always recommend that since sometimes we make less than good choices in those moments of weakness.
But you can actually wrap these up and take them with you. It's just mainly trying to plan ahead which I guess I've gotten better about with age.
So I pretty much try to have some healthier grab & go goodies available in the fridge...
Whether it be some No Bake Chocolate Almond Butter Energy Bites or Snowball Cookies which just happen to be a couple favorites...it can just somehow make your day go a lot smoother if you have one less thing to worry about.
Like what am I going eat now or What's for Dinner tonight? To me one of the most relaxing moments is having figured that part out Early.
I know, but seriously guys like food is really that important to me...Guess that's why I started this blog.
