Looking for a quick post workout snack or filling and healthy breakfast to make you “feel gooder”? Well this Almond Toffee Crunch Smoothie Bowl is delicious, creamy and packed with protein... perfect for breakfast or a mid afternoon snack!
This summer was especially busy, as I was out of town (for both work and play) for a total of over a month! But with a new school year, brings an opportunity to settle down a bit, but mostly to get back to a more organized routine. Uhh... I love routines, and organization, and schedules!
Despite my busy summer, one thing that I started incorporating back into my “normal” routine was exercising. And let me tell you, it was the best thing ever! I used to be consistent about my workout schedule, but the last few years, as I took on more life responsibilities and transitioned into a freelance contractor, I struggled to find balance and make time for regular exercise.
But the past few months, as I have tried new things (who knew I would love barre so much!!) and made a point of exercising at least 3-4 times a week, has left me feeling renewed, energized, and overall just feeling great!
That is why I was happy to discover these new ZonePerfect Perfectly Simple nutrition bars. They come in four flavors, like Almond Toffee Crunch, Bing Cherry and Almond, Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk and Roasted Cashew and Dark Chocolate, and use real ingredients that you can actually see in the bar. These bars are super convenient to grab and take with me when I am headed out the door for a busy day or when I head to my favorite workout class.
