Y'all... these bars are

the

bomb.com. Like so so good. My new favorite. And the packaging! I'm obsessed.

Let me introduce you to nakd:

Nakd is an awesome part of Natural Balance Foods that makes healthy bars out of natural, real ingredients. As they put it, "Nakd bars and snacks are a great way to eat nutritious, healthy food without compromising on taste! Our snack bars are made from yummy natural ingredients such as fruits and nuts which are 'smooshed' together for you into a handy bar. Wheat and dairy free, with no added sugars or hidden extras." Interested yet?

A major part of living a healthy lifestyle is eating healthy foods. Like I've talked about before, the nutritional value of food goes way beyond the actual nutrition label. It's so easy to think something is "healthy" because the company has labeled it that way. A lot of times though, those "healthy items" are filled with processed added sugars and ingredients that you need a degree to pronounce! So when I saw that each of these bars had an average of 3-5 ingredients that I could actually pronounce, I was sold. The main ingredient in the bars is dates, which gives them their sweet taste, even though they taste too sweet for that to be true! Then they add other nuts and natural ingredients to give it a particular flavor. To top it all off, they are wheat

and

dairy free, which makes it easy for everyone to try! If you want to learn more about a

I've seen so many great posts reviewing nakd bars, so I wanted to make sure my review was 100% authentic. I

made

asked my family to help me sample them, and here's what we thought!

It seems like what one person liked, another one didn't, but these are the top picks for each person

:

-bakewell tart (my favorite)

-berry delight

-gingerbread

-strawberry crunch

-cocoa delight 

-cocoa orange

None of us were crazy about cashew cookie. Compared to all the flavors of all the other bars, this one just seemed a little bland. For all four of us to only not like one flavor though, they must be doing something right! With so many different flavors, anyone can find one they'll love! 

After just trying little bite-sized samples of the flavors, I was so full! These would be the perfect snack to throw in your bag for a mid-day snack or to eat before the gym!

If y'all have tried any nakd bars, I'd love to know what you think of them and what your favorite flavor is!

Thank you so much to nakd for sending me the bars.

the best health bars

Health bars can be tricky. Either they're not good and healthy or they're amazing but full of sugars and fats without much of the good stuff we actually want.  Thankfully, there is a protein bar that perfectly combines a good taste with real health benefits. Let me introduce you to the brand you'll soon love, Quest Nutrition. 

Quest Bars first stuck out to me because of their nutritional information. They're marketed as being gluten free, high fiber, low sugar while still having a low number of net carbs. A typical bar has around 20 grams of protein, 1 gram or no sugar, close to 20 grams of fiber, minimal fat and all for 200 calories or less. 

What I love even more than the nutritional information is the taste! Although they can sometimes be chewy, once you heat these guys up, it's a whole new ball game. One of my favs is the chocolate chip cookie dough. If you throw it in the microwave for a few seconds, it seriously tastes just like warm Pillsbury cookie dough - except for much healthier of course! 

Even if you can't heat one up, it's still amazing! And it's so easy to just throw into your bag and eat on the go instead of running through a drive-thru. One of the best things about Quest bars (as if there isn't enough already), is that they're so filling! It really can be a meal replacement-it keeps you full that long. It's even the perfect dessert. Inspired by some of their

YouTube videos

, I made one into one of the best cookies ever. 

Their videos transform their already amazing bars into foods you never thought could be healthy. Some examples include Samoa Cookies, Key Lime Pie and Pina Colada cups. And with so many flavors to choose from, everyone can find one they enjoy! 

Btws: Quest Nutrition also sells carb free pasta and healthy chips!
