Now that Fashion Week is long over and I’m no longer subsiding on champagne and cupcakes, I have no excuse not to eat healthier. That means I’ve replaced champers with Pelligrino and cupcakes with Keribars. Created by renowned nutritionist Keri Glassman, the Keribar is the ultimate snack for an on-the-go individual that is high in fiber and proteins, low in fat and made entirely of all natural ingredients. The idea behind the Keribar is aligned with Glassman’s approach to health and weight loss – by snacking healthy. Let’s face it – regardless of what type of diet you’re on, you’re probably restricting yourself from entire flavors of things (i.e. sweet) and probably starving yourself in between meals to count calories. Or alternatively, you may not be on a diet and just eating whatever you feel like, whenever. Really, neither of those scenarios are healthy or sustainable ways to live and eat, so Glassman developed the Keribar as the solution to snacking when you’re hungry, but only on something that is nutritious, satisfying, and good for you! Keribars satiate hunger, while keeping you energized and blood sugar level constant so you can take your mind off of obsessing over eating and onto living your daily life.
So how good are Keribars really? Taste-wise, they may be the most satisfying bars I’ve had to date. It’s a good consistency that is not dense like many raw food bars or (on the complete opposite end of the spectrum) Powerbars. When I’m having a craving for chocolate, I reach for the Strawberry Chocolate Chip flavor (my favorite) instead of my hidden stash of milk chocolates in the drawer. Nutritionally speaking, Keribars are made with nutrient dense whole foods so you’re not consuming empty calories. At 10-12 grams per serving, the sugar content in Keribars is much lower than many other bars and even lower than some fruits! And the ingredients don’t contain weird things like 10 grams of “other carbs” (what is that really???) found on the label of Lunabars.
Keribars are now being carried in more and more grocery stores, but if you can’t find them, you can also order from the website. More information can be found on Keribars.com.
