Here's a raw food bar I found that I love: Go Raw Live Pumpkin Bar. You can see the ingredients right there on the FRONT of the package. I love that. I also love being able to see the bar itself right through the packaging. I'm a very visual eater, in case you hadn't noticed, and this is a big selling point for me. I found it alluring to be able to see this beautiful bar before I bought it. And the photos to the right are my actual photos of the bar, not doctored-up photos taken by a professional food photographer. It's just that pretty!
These great bars also vegan and gluten free. They have a handful of other varieties of raw/live food bars that I'll have to try out soon. Here are the ingredients: Sprouted Organic Pumpkin Seeds, Sprouted Organic Flax Seeds, Organic Date, Raw Organic Agave Nectar, Celtic Sea Salt.
I picked the pumpkin bar after seeing that it had a considerable amount of protein for a vegan treat. While they do have added sweetener in the Agave nectar, when you're out and about and want something portable to grab & go (in the absence of your own homemade trail mix), these are a great choice. They're also made from live sprouted seeds, which are excellent to add to our diets for an excellent source of healthy, natural fats.
I might try making bars like this at home soon, if I do, I'll be sure to blog about it! In the meantime, I love these enough to spend my hard-earned money on them for when I need a healthy snack on-the-go.
I picked my Go Raw Live Pumpkin Bar up at The Real Food Company (my local small grocery store), here in San Francisco, but you can also buy these bars online directly from Go Raw or find a distributor through their website to find a local shop near you.
