Hello! Firstly – apologies that it’s been a while since I last posted, I’ve just been super busy and life has caught up with me a bit, as well as having some thoughts on some changes I’m thinking about with my blog. Bear with me, regular awesomeness will return in a couple of weeks!
This one’s a foodie post, with some awesome healthy snacks to try! I was recently sent some of these Nakd bars, and I’ve been snacking on them at work since and have finally tried them all! They’re made by Natural Balance Foods, a British company who make wholefoods that ‘taste good and do good’. These bars are made from dates and nuts, which initially made me think they wouldn’t be that tasty – but they really were! The consistency of the bars is soft and chewy – they’re cold pressed, never baked – similar to a cookie dough-like texture.
They’re really natural tasting, but the flavourings make them delicious and not bland like I’d expected ‘wholefoods’ to be. Being a bit of a chocoholic, my favourites were definitely the Cocoa Delight and Cocoa Mint bars – they genuinely tasted lovely and cocoa-y and are a great replacement for those who like to snack on a bar of chocolate during the day. I also really liked the Berry Delight – it tasted super fruity, with none of the ‘processed’ taste of other snack bars.
I was really surprised by how tasty these were. I have to admit, my diet is a bit rubbish at times – but these have been brilliant for snacking at work!
The bars are suitable for vegans, and gluten, wheat and dairy free (although unfortunately not suitable for those with nut allergies!). You can pick them up online (with a multipack retailing at £13.99 for 18, which works out at about 77p a bar which is reasonable, considering the price of similar snack bars) and in most major supermarkets, in the wholefoods aisle.
Do you eat wholefoods – or are these something you’d love to try?
