I'm so excited to share Barre Nutrition Bars with you! If you have ever attempted to maintain a healthier lifestyle, specifically in the area of eating and nutrition, you can relate to the struggles that most of us face when trying to make better decisions concerning our food. As women, the struggle can be elevated even more, as we require different needs that often are not catered to in general nutritional foods. While there are a few female-specific products, the list remains short. Lucky for us, in walks a new product created by two professional dancers called Barre, a pure performance nutrition bar!

Barre Nutrition Bars
While every aspect of these nutrition bars is ridiculously cool, the thing I probably love most about them is they are made with whole food ingredients, are 75% raw, contain no animal products, and are free from most common allergens like soy and wheat! Not only that, but these things are absolutely LOADED with superfoods to help keep you amped up and performing at your best whether you are an Olympic-grade gymnast or a busy mom-on-the-go. That's cool thing number two. You don't have to be an athlete to reap the benefits of Barre bars. They are designed to provide everyone with quick and sustained energy to help get us through even the most difficult times.
Ok, here comes cool thing number three: these bars are kind of themed, which makes them really aesthetically pleasing and fun! I know this isn't the most important thing in the world, but if I'm going to carry something with me in my bag at all times I like to be able to look at it without wincing, and have it stand out in all the clutter. With flavors like ‘Pirouette Cinnamon Pecan' (an exciting gooey bar), ‘Black Swan Chocolate Berry' (filled with cocoa and cranberries), and ‘Ballerina Spirulina' (a macaroon-like beaut'), and beautifully decorated packages to match, it's exciting to have your mid-afternoon power snack! Well, more exciting than usual!
I was lucky enough to get to try all three flavors, and I must say I was surprised at the uniqueness of each. If you've ever had Lara Bars, the idea is similar. It's not so much of a granola bar as it is a nutrition bar, however I thought these flavors (and the long-lasting, healthy energy I got from them) rocked!
To give you an idea, my favorite was probably the Pirouette Cinnamon Pecan. It's the original Barre flavor, and really offers that classic chewy cinnamony Pecan Pie feel. They describe it as ‘crumb cake meets cookie dough', but I just say it's nuts (pun intended)! Ingredient-wise, this bad boy contains a healthy mix of dates, walnuts, pecans, agave nectar, hemp seed, rolled oats, flax seed, vanilla, cinnamon, and peanuts among other things- talk about a boost of energy with this bar!
Ok, as you can tell, I get really excited talking about these nutrition bars. Bottom line: they are FABULOUS. Don't let the whole ‘nutrition bar' title scare you. These are not, I repeat ARE NOT, just for athletes. I am a huge advocate that everyone needs a little more water, yoga, and a good nutrition bar in their life, and this bar fits the bill. Try it out!
