After class, I headed out for some food shopping and stopped at my new favorite coffee place, Joey Bag a Donuts. Their coffee is out of this world delicious...dare I say, better than Starbucks? The place also smells like sugar heaven! I haven't tried any of their pastries/donuts/bagels, but they look awesome:
The plan for the rest of the day includes learning the new Body Pump release, walking Frank, enjoying the weather and taxes (blah).
Recently, I received a free sample of Nuts & Seeds Crunch and FoodBars from the Wholesome Foods Bakery:
According to the website, the bakery is, "a gluten-free, all-natural and organic bakery. We offer a wide array of yummy home-made Sweet Breads, Yeast Breads, Muffins, Treats and convenient on the go FoodBars and Crunch. All of our products are made in the healthiest way possible; using healthy fats, unrefined sugars, and complex carbohydrates. Gluten-free, preservative free, and often dairy free, our goodies will please all of your family and friends!"
Although I do not have a gluten allergy, I have a lot of friends who do and they are always looking for tasty, gluten-free products. Josh and I dove into the Nuts & Seeds Crunch first:
Josh tried it mixed with another cereal and we both tried it mixed into some greek yogurt with fruit:
Its so tasty! Almost like a lighter granola. I will definitely be ordering more of this in the future!
Up next, the bars! The bars are slightly sweet and filling! They also have great nutritional stats (which you can find on the website). I think the description on the website says it best: "Wonderfully balanced combination of protein, fats, and fiber, Gluten-Free FoodBars will give you sustained energy. Complex carbohydrates will power you through, while the protein-fats-fiber combination will help to keep you satisfied and healthy. All-natural combinations of nuts, seeds, un-refined syrups and dried fruits make FoodBars the perfect snack."
