WIAW Paleo Friendly RxBars and a Giveaway!

WIAW Paleo Friendly RxBars and a Giveaway!

I try to eat as minimal processed foods as possible but sometimes I just need something quick and easy.  Finding foods that are clean, organic, have minimal ingredients and are paleo friendly can be a little complicated.

Luckily there are some wonderful companies like RxBar that food should be made with quality ingredients and consumed as nature intended it to be.

Rxbar

RxBar’s contain no more than 8 ingredients all of which are 100% Paleo and all natural.  They contain no grains, added sugars, gluten, soy, dairy, or any artificial or processed ingredients.  They use Non-Gmo egg white protein to give their bars added protein to help get you through your day.

Along with the egg white protein their ingredients include Dates, Figs, Almonds, Coconut Oil, coconut, Cocoa, and/or blueberries.

I must say I really enjoyed the figs in these bars!  I love dried figs in general and they seemed to balance out the sugar content of the bars perfectly.  Some bars that use dates can be a bit too sweet in my opinion but not these ones!

Being a chocolate lover, I thought the Coconut Cocoa would be my favorite.

Then I tried the blueberry and wow!  Loved it!

So did The Love Nugget which meant I only got in a few bites before he was demanding more, then more, then the rest of the bar.  Little moocher!

Truly such a clean, healthy snack that I’ll definitely be purchasing them in the future!  Not only are they great bars, but an awesome company as well.  So awesome that they’ve offered to send TWO lucky readers sample packs with their Paleo friendly RxBars.

Just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter below.

Until then, here’s a look at the rest of my eats from yesterday!

What a horrible picture!

As I cleaned up and packed up snacks I munched on a few raw nuts because I’m pretty much addicted.

Enjoyed a Blueberry RxBar shared with The Love Nugget around 10:30

Super easy but delicious lunch,

Snack around 4:00 of some apple slices and sun butter.

Dinner was Bang Bang shimp with cauliflower fried rice.

bang

I pretty much followed this recipe or the bang bang shrimp but skipped the chili paste as we don’t like spicy and added some Coconut Aminos and Red Boat fish sauce.    It was delicious and after how much The Love Nugget ate I thought he was going to throw up shrimp in his sleep!  Luckily he didn’t and still managed to chow down on some watermelon with us a little later.  How can you resist fresh watermelon in the summer!?!

Don’t forget if you’re following along with the Paleo Challenge to check off how you’re doing on the spreadsheet!  If you’re still having trouble accessing it please let me know and I’ll check you off 🙂 I’ll begin announcing prizes soon!

  1. I like apple slices with almond butter.

  2. I don’t know if I’ll be as lucky this time (still super excited to receive your other giveaway goodies!) but my fave minimally processed snack are definitely Larabars. These look great, wondering if I can find them in Canada!

  3. My fave minimally processed snacks are half a greenish banana w/crunchy almond butter, raw nuts, a Larabar (if out & about), or carrots with guacamole. I’ve never gotten to try the RxBar & have always wanted to, they sound awesome!

  4. Rebekah B says:

    I love larabars!

  5. These look so good! I’d love to try them. I love celery and nut butter as a snack. Also, I had my morning shot of apple cider vinegar and lemon juice too. 🙂

    I just recently tried these bars at Blend Retreat for the first time, and I was instantly hooked! So good!

  8. Susan L says:

    When I am in a rush, I eat a ZING bar. It is made by nutritionists and I LOVE them and all their goodness. I am trying to get pregnant, so my nutritionist recommended these healthy, higher protein, REAL ingredients bars. I totally want to try the RX Bar too.
