Lisa, the Health Nut

I'm lisa and I loooove healthy food!  The lifestyle I chose to live is eating only natural or organic food products, minimally processed whenever possible.  What I can't stand is that people may  automatically assume all "health food" that I eat isn't flavorful or tasty.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!  Why would I eat stuff that doesn't taste good?  So my mission is to spread the word that "healthy" does not mean "tasteless".  Healthy food can be just as yummy as the not-so healthy types!   I'll let you know what foods are good, and which ones aren't so good. :)

Clif Crunch Peanut Butter & White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Granola Bars

Clif bars. A true love of mine. I haven’t really found one yet that disappointed me. And as an addition to my lineup of favorite bars is now the Clif Crunch bars :)

Clif Bar & Company sent me some of their Clif Crunch bars to try. These bars come in Peanut Butter, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, Chocolate Chip and Honey Oat. They are all natural (70% organic), and are made with whole grains. Being a fan of granola bars, I was so excited to try these. Obviously I opened up the boxes once they arrived at my house! :)

Each package comes with 2 bars, for a total of 42 grams. What I liked about these bars was that although they were crunchy, they were NOT super hard. It was sort of a “soft” crunch, and was really quite enjoyable!

Peanut Butter- oh. my. goodness. This is one of the BEST peanut butter granola bars EVER!! It was just perfect, and even drizzled with peanut butter on top (some even melted right on my wrapper. Yum!!!). Very peanut buttery, and was salty and slightly sweet. It gave me that “dry mouth I need water” kind of peanut butter taste-which in my opinion, ROCKS! Honestly, these tasted like peanut butter COOKIES. Just amazing.  5 stars

White Chocolate Macadamia- my tastebuds are singing, yet again. Another delicious bar. Light and crispy, with buttery sweet white chocolate chips throughout the bar. A nice, vanilla flavor was easily detected-but I didn’t taste much Macadamia Nut. No worries, still a winner in my eyes. 4 1/2 stars

Overall, these absolutely ROCK. I had these for breakfast with some fruit before a workout, and it fueled me up and kept me going! I really enjoyed these! Although they are a bit high in fat (both flavors have 9 grams per 2 bars), it is worth the delicious taste. They are also a little low in protein for my likings, but paired with some yogurt or fruit and I think they can make a perfect breakfast, or light lunch. Plus, these are 70% organic, made with whole grains, and just yummy! :)
