[Hey friends! I just wanted to let you know I got another article published on Mind Body Green yesterday! It’s about the demonization of carbs & sugar in our society. I would LOVE if you read & shared it! Here is the link.]
Where my paleo people at!? I can’t say I’m a fan of the diet itself, but I can get on board with some of the products! As you know, there are good aspects of EVERY diet out there and the emphasis on real, whole foods that paleo has is right up my alley. So it makes sense that I’d be a fan of food products that are labeled as ‘paleo’. Today’s Foods of the Moment is a round-up some awesome paleo products I’ve been able to try recently. Everything from snacks to nut butters to bars! There’s something for everyone and I even have a HUGE giveaway from RBar at the end. So let’s get into it…
ABBA Paleo Bars are snack bars formulated for athletes, adults, kids, and health enthusiasts alike! They’re low in sugar, high in protein, and totally gluten-free. The bars come in four flavors: Whey Too Yummy, Peanut Butter and Yummy (my favorite), Cuckoo for Coconut, and Pea is for Paleo. I was SO impressed with these bars. The texture is amazing. Almost creamy! I think it’s because the base of each is made primarily from nut butter like cashew or almond. They’re so doughy and delicious! I was skeptical as to whether I’d like them since they’re sweetened with stevia. Sometimes when it’s used in bars I feel like it gives them a funny aftertaste, but not with these at all. Amidst the doughy base of each bar there are tons of whole chunks of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. As I mentioned above, my favorite was by far the Peanut Butter and Yummy flavor. It had the texture of peanut butter cookie dough and the big pieces of dates made it taste like a pb & j. The addition of cacao nibs added nice crunch and chocolatey flavor too! These are definitely a new favorite of mine. I especially enjoyed them straight out of the freezer so they were a bit more firm. Yum!
The Caveman’s Cupboard makes raw organic nut and seed butters in 5 unique flavors. All their products are gluten-free and paleo friendly. I was sent sampler of their products to try for myself! Being the nut butter lover I am I tested them by spooning them right from the jar. The first thing that hit me was how smooth and liquid-y the butters are. No clumping and no need to stir! They are perfectly ready for eating as soon as you open them. While they all have their own individual flavor, I will say that they all tasted slightly of coconut oil since that’s a main ingredient in each of them. So if you’re not a fan of coconut oil than you may not like these! But I don’t mind it so its subtle flavor didn’t bother me. The Power Cave Butter was super mix of nuts and seeds including: pumpkin seeds, pecans, cashews, almonds, hemp seeds, and chia! There was a slight chocolatey flavor due to the inclusion of raw cacao and it tasted very rich. The Cinnamon Cashew was sweet and cinnamon-y with a nice honey flavor to compliment the buttery cashews. The Mocha Cave Nut was cashew and almond based and was my favorite out of the bunch! Chocolate coffee deliciousness with a really nice texture. Coconut Almond is definitely made for coconut lovers. It has both coconut oil AND raw coconut so the coconut flavor is intense! Reminded me of healthy Almond Joy. 🙂
My friends at RXBar recently changed their entire packaging and branding! They also released a new flavor….PUMPKIN SPICE. New look and new flavors? Yes please. They sent me a box to try for myself and I have to say they NAILED the pumpkin flavor. Sweet, cinnamon-y, and nutty all at the same time! And don’t you just love the simple ingredients? Protein bars full of fruits, nuts, and no added sugars…PERFECTION! The Pumpkin Spice flavor is now tied with the Peanut Butter flavor as my favorite. 🙂
I was a big fan of RBars when I reviewed them last year! They are simple raw fruit and nut bars that are totally organic. Recently the company debuted all new packaging that’s brighter, more eye-catching, and more representative of all the whole food ingredients packed in each bar. To celebrate, they’ve generously offered to give one of my readers a sampler pack of their bars with THREE of each flavor! My favorite is a tie between Double Chocolate and PB & J.
