As a momma of three busy boys, mornings can become a bit hectic. Three outfits, three breakfasts, three sets of teeth to help brush. Plus myself! Sometimes I am rushing out of the door, searching for one son’s backpack, my left shoe and my keys when I realize … I didn’t feed myself. Many folks say that breakfast is the most important meal, and I definitely need fuel in my tank to start my day. Typically when I frantically run back into my kitchen, I eat the fruit that my kid’s didn’t finish from their breakfast plate, or I grab a handful of nuts or a granola bar.
Recently I discovered some delicious gluten-free, dairy-free raw bars that are perfect as an on-the-go breakfast. Elemental Superfood bars come in four varieties, dark chocolate and peanut butter; mulberry cacao and spirulina; cranberry almond and lucoma; and currant cacao and hemp. The flavors balance salty with sweet, and the texture stimulates the mouth. The bars have crunch from nuts, seeds and dried berries, but they also have a velvety smoothness to them. High in protein and fiber with no refined sugar (they are sweetened with raw organic honey), the bars taste wonderful and provide a major, natural energy boost! As a nursing momma, I am always looking for healthy, organic, nutrition packed meals and snacks – Elemental Superfood bars fit the bill.
Check out elemental-raw.com to buy a box of delicious, nutritious seed bars or a bag of crumble for yourself! If you enjoy buckeye candy, definitely try the dark chocolate and peanut butter variation. The superfood bars taste more like dessert than a healthy snack or meal replacement. Don’t be surprised if your kiddos try to sneak some of your snacks from you 😉
