Good morning blog buds!
As seems to be the case lately, Tuesdays are complete madness and as such, no exercise was to be had. So this morning I’m hoping to do some cardio AND some yoga because I’m feeling the need for both. A little calorie burnin’ plus some Gumby-inducing moves.
I tried a new-to me raw (mostly) bar that I wanted to share with you. (As you can tell it was eaten at work, due to the horrible iPhone shot…)
Coconut Acai flavor ingredients: Organic Almond Butter, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Date Paste, Organic Dried Coconut, Organic Almonds, Organic Raisins, Organic Puffed Amaranth, Organic Acai Dry Powder, Sea Salt
This was sensational! I loved it. I will definitely be trying other flavors of PranaBar. You all know I LOVE my Larabars so don’t think they’ve been knocked out of my daily food plan. From a price point perspective Larabars can’t be beat, because I buy them when they are on sale for $1 at my local grocery store. The Prana bars are more in the $2 range, so it will be an occasional treat. But if you are in the mood for something different, give PranaBar a try.
I pulled up a saved link today to an MSN slide show that I wanted to share with you about food additives to avoid. Some of the items on this list are common sense (like avoiding refined white sugar and excess salt) but learning that potential carcinogens BHA/BHT could be in your breakfast cereal (or your kids’ cereal) may not be so common.

Today’s Discussion Question: Do you have any particular additives or foods that you specifically avoid in addition to this list? Please share with us in the comments section. In addition to the additives and artificial sweeteners listed in the article, I try to avoid ALL artificial sweeteners, and made the move to Stevia instead of Splenda for my coffee back in April. I also ended my love affair with diet soda (and ALL sodas now for that matter).
Make it a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY friends!
