"To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art." ~ La Rochefoucauld
Have you ever said something would be perfect if it had a different ingredient or one less ingredient? You are not alone, I do it all the time! In fact it seems like I am never truly satisfied with over the counter prepared foods as I am with food I have made or baked myself. When I was telling my friend about my concept she burst my bubble and told me about YOU Bars so I immediately had to take a look for myself! After doing a little research, I was more than impressed with what they were offering and how easy it is to maneuver through their site to make your very own "You Bar".
The process is simple and is very comparable to baking- which I love to do. First things first you need to do is pick your base which is what your bar is primarily going to be made out of. There are seven different bases with a combination of organic ingredients as well as non-gmo. I chose the Peanut Butter. Once you have found your base you want to chose if you want a protein base or go without. I chose to go without. The third step is to chose your nuts or seeds that compliment your base. There are 13 to chose from with great organic options. I chose the organic walnuts and organic cashews to compliment my peanut butter. My favorite step is choosing the dried fruits for your bars and I got a little crazy with choosing Cherries and Coconut! Step five is to pick the sweetener that works best for your bar I chose the Honey option as I love peanut butter and honey together. Step six allows you to pick up to 4 different seasonings, chocolates or other additives. Since I already have peanut butter with cashews, walnuts, cherries, and coconuts I chose to go simple with this step by adding extra dark chocolate, vanilla extract, and sea salt. The final step requires you to know something about grains and cereal and since I think my bar would be hearty enough I chose to not put any additional grains in my bar! With that being said I would like to introduce you to my YOU BAR the "Nutty for You" bar! I am sure it will be a best seller!
If you don't feel comfortable building your own bar you can chose from a long list of already made popular bars. You can purchase the bars directly from their on-line store. I had fun trying the samples they sent me and some of them I loved while some of them were a little too healthy tasting for me but what I didn't seem to like my husband did so it was a win/ win!
