Healthy Snacks&Healthy Cereal Bars*

Hey guys! I've planning to do a healthy snacks post for a long time and recently I was contacted by Natural Balance Foods, the people who make Naked bars and asked to do a collaboration with them. So I figured what a perfect time to finally actually do my healthy snacks post. I'm not sure the fat per mg and all that malarky with these snacks, but they're nice and certainly aren't unhealthy. Also, I don't actually have many pictures at all for this, because since writing this I have had no avocado in my house and my apple and peanut butter was not aesthetically pleasing.

APPLE AND PEANUT BUTTER
Not much really to say about this, except I love it. When my friend told me about it I was so sceptical, but then I remember celery and peanut butter was a thing (only ever had it once when I was in year 5 or something but sometimes I still think about how nice it was). I know peanut butter isn't that healthy, but I buy the All Natural Peanut butter (crunchy is my preferred) and oh my god it's so nice. I haven't had normal peanut butter in such a long time but this ones ingredients is just peanuts and some sunflower oil. I can't remember if it tastes that different to normal peanut butter but 10/10 would recommend this one. Plus this snack is quick and easy.


RYVITAS AND AVOCADO
For ages I always ate corn thins which are nice and all but man, ryvitas are so much better. I like to put smashed avocado on them with some other random vegetables like tomatoes or spinach or cucumber or something. This is quite a filling snack but it's so good. I don't really know what else to say, but man. Tastes so good.

NAKD BARS
This is a much easier snack than all the others because it requires no preparation but I love them. I always take one to school but it's weird because they don't taste healthy. The ingredients are just dates and raisins and just other natural ingredients, but it doesn't taste like it. They're made by Natural Balance Foods who do more than just Nakd bars, but you can get Nakd bites and so many other things (which I am yet to try) but at Reading I had a back of Nakd bites and oh my god they went so fast. I got them in cocoa delight flavour and it was just like eating mini brownies, it was great. They sent me a box of Nakd bars to try and oh my god I didn't realise how many flavours there were. Bakewell tart flavoured bar!! The best part is they're healthy cereal bars, there is no hidden cups of sugar because it's all natural so you can fully enjoy them without worrying about your health or whatever.

Honestly, I am so excited to dig into this box of nakd bars. I already have, they've been getting me through college but I am yet to try all the flavours! So yeah, here are some of my favourite snacks, but if you haven't checked out Natural Balance Foods you should, because the options are genuinely limitless, I never knew there were so many ways to use dates/raisins and stuff. Hope you're all having a good week!

  1. These sound really good. I make a few of my energy bites with dates and love them. I could definitely use a snack while I do my homework... I got a bit distracted obviously. I'm really hoping I can find these around where I live.
    Have a great week!

    1. Ah Dalal you should have! I was skeptical as well the first time I ever went to have one but you can't tell they're healthy at all! Cocoa delight is literally just like eating a brownie, except with a different texture x
