Life Choice Welness Nutrition Bars Fudge Graham #BarNutrition #shopIf you follow me on instagram, twitter, or facebook, you would know that over the past three weeks I have been trying really, really, REALLY hard to stick to a fitness plan and make smart choices when it comes to food! I’ve been doing well, and I’m quite proud of myself! However, I do find that sometimes making the right choices can be difficult when I get those pangs of hunger away from home.  As Ive talked about before, I do NOT want to turn to fast food or convenience store options, so I need to have on the go snacks that I can have on hand in a hunger emergency!

I stopped in to Walmart to see what they had that may fit the bill. I looked in the cereal aisle to see if there were any new breakfast type bars, or other snack bars that looked good, and better for me. Life Choice Bars available in your Walmart cereal aisle #BarNutrition #shop

I saw the Life Choice bars and was intrigued! They had Wellness, Protein, Energy, and Meal bars! These looked perfect! I checked out the ingredients and saw that not only did they look delicious, but they were also nutritious and jam-packed with vitamins and minerals!

I grabbed a box of the Wellness snack bars because I thought they’d satisfy my appetite and provide me with all the protein and other nutrients that I need to get through my busy day!

I found these bars just in time!

This weekend we were busy bees! We went on a Whale watch, which meant we were on a boat for 4 hours with only access to the food we packed, or what they served in the galley! Having my Wellness bar meant I wasn’t as tempted to chow down on the not-so-healthy snacks aboard the boat!  Then the next day Avery and I went to Edaville USA for Day Out with Thomas. Amusement park food is pricey, and it’s not the best for you (though they do have healthier options) again, I had a Wellness bar with me, and I chose that over mozzarella sticks and nachos. Avery had a hot dog and fries, as always.
Life Choice wellness bars are a better option than fast food #BarNutrition #shop

I almost felt guilty eating what tasted like a candy bar, but then I reminded myself about all the fiber and protein and vitamins that I was getting! Seriously though, the double fudge graham bars taste like s’mores!! YUM!!!

In addition to trying to eat better, I’ve also been watching what I drink. I’ve all but given up soda completely, and we no longer buy it. I have switched from high fat and high sugar options at my favorite coffee shop, and opted for unsweetened iced green tea, and I’ve been slamming back as much water as I can. Sometimes, though, I crave something a bit sweeter!

I’ve been really loving all things pear lately! Fresh pears, pear juice, pear popcicles, and yes, even pear cider on the rare occasion that we go out. I decided to make my own Vanilla-Pear sparkling water!

Vanilla Pear Sparkling Water RecipeIt was pretty easy, and very delicious! I just chopped up fresh, ripe pears, put them in a pot with some vanilla bean and a little sugar, cooked it up, strained it, added the syrup to the water, and ta-da! A delicious, light and refreshing treat!  homemade pear syrup #BarNutrition #shop

It was really, really, good and the perfect accompaniment to my Wellness bar! Sparkling Vanilla Pear water
