May is Mediterranean Diet Month
and We Have Some Yum Yums for You!
I don’t know how I happened upon Mediterra Nutrition Bars – maybe my Fairy Godmother sent them seeing as how I am trying to eat healthy in May. Noted by some scientists as the healthiest way of eating, the Mediterranean Diet is more a lifestyle than a set of dietary ingredients. The Mediterranean Diet emphasizes whole grains, greens and healthy fats, fruit, nuts and less meats and sweets. To make is easier to take your Mediterranean Diet while on the go, Mediterra created their line of nutrition bars which fall into the guidelines of the Mediterranean diet.
And they are delicious!
With flavor that is balanced, each ingredient pops into my mouth and shouts “I’m delicious.” Loaded with fiber, nutrients and vitamins, instead of complex sugars and saturated fats, the Mediterra Nutrition Bars are succulent. Ingredients include sesame seeds, sundried tomatoes, capers, walnuts, black olives and Greek honey. These bars are all natural, Gluten free, and non-GMO and sell for $1.99 each.
You know how it is readers! I’m sitting petting Clem the dachshund, reading the newest book to be reviewed and suddenly my stomach says HUNGRY! Only I am not eating sugar or pastas this month, as I am trying to get rid of that ugly five pounds that has come to live on my hips. Its breeding, that five pounds, and I notice some has slithered down to my stomach too! Go away I shout! And I reach for my Mediterra Apricot and Pistachio Yogurt and Oat Bar with 7 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber (180 calories). Ha! I’m safe from the FATS for one more night!
And I love the taste of these bars. Filling and totally awesome, look at the ingredients in this one Apricot Bar: gluten free rolled oats, organic brown rice syrup, honey, soy nuggets, yogurt coating, nonfat dry milk, pistachios, sunflower seeds raisins fig paste, apricots, flax meal, sea salt…. No bitter artificial aftertaste either!!!! Yum, yum!
