I know, I know. They sound delicious. And they so are. But for years, we have been told to say no. If we don’t, we will wear the evidence of our snack cravings on our hips. We’d have to hit the gym more, sacrifice other meals and berate ourselves for days for giving in. Well, those days are long gone as these delicious flavors come from crave friendly Balance Bars! With each new bar having 190 calories or less, containing 5-7 grams of protein and 5-6 grams of fiber, we can crave freely and let go of the guilt of enjoying sweet snacks that make us smile!

These NEW snacks from Balance Bar are on shelves now and I recommend you stock up! If for no other reason than to appease those cravings that hit. You know, those mid afternoon, I need sweets but I shouldn’t, I can’t, I so want something but I can’t, cravings? Grabbing a delicious and lower calorie bar to indulge in those cravings without ruining your whole day of ‘being good’ is just smart.

My cravings are two fold. I love sweets late at night and I love something crunchy and sort of salty. So the Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat Balance Bars solve that issue easily. Then I can go to bed not thinking about the insane number of burpees I would have to do at CrossFit the next day to burn it off! It just feels better to make a better choice when those ‘I have to have it’ cravings hit!

Balanced snacking is all about indulging in the foods we crave in a balanced way. It’s eating Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle while also getting Fiber and Vitamins we need. It’s about treating our minds, cravings and bodies with equal respect as we indulge in a snack that satiates us! It’s not about extreme juice fasts, kale cleanses or dogmatic dieting rules that often set us up for failure. It’s also not overindulging in decadent treats that offer little nutritive value when our willpower runs out. It’s… balanced.

The flavors make your cravings happy and don't undo your day with Balance Bars. #CraveFreely ad
