Organic Food Bar Review and Giveaway



Organic Food Bar Review and Giveaway
I have been given a great opportunity recently in getting to review several varieties of Organic Food Bar and Raw Organic Food Bar. This was a very fun review. I love food and I love healthy and delicious food. This bar really has it all- natural ingredients, no junk and tastes great. I knew I would like most of the flavors (Wild blueberry, cranberry, chocolate coconut), but I will admit great skepticism on the flavors with the names-Omega 3- Flax, Active Greens and Protein. I will have to say that those flavors were just as good! My husband agrees with that statement as well. He tried all the flavors too and while any of the chocolate flavors was his favorite, he would for sure eat the Active Greens again as it did not have a “green” or “medicine” aftertaste to it at all. All flavors were very moist and hearty. These bars are high in calories (some up to 320 calories), but just as anything you eat, you can fit these into your day. I would use a bar as a meal or eat ½ before a workout and the other ½ after the workout.
I highly recommend these bars to everyone. All varieties contain good wholesome ingredients including organic almond butter, raisins, agave nectar and organic dark chocolate chips. What’s not to like about that?!?

In 2001, Dr. Jack J. Singh founded Organic Food Bar. Historically, Organic Food Bar started in a brave way years ago before anybody else. They printed the benefits of raw foods on the front of their 70-90% raw bar. It also was way higher in price then the power bars of its day. They are pioneers and helped pave the way for all the other raw entrepreneurs we see today. They are the ORIGINAL and still the BEST in quality and value!
ORGANIC FOOD BAR is a tightly-knit family. Each person who works here at our headquarters in Southern California is member of that family. Most of our staff have been here for many years. That's because we all believe deeply in the vision of ORGANIC FOOD BAR.

Mmm. Those look like a good thing for me to try.

I think the chocolate one looks best, and while "eating our ORGANIC FOOD BAR Chocolate Chip™ may not lead to historic discoveries, it will lead to a healthier body and a better mindset!"

While reading about the Belgium Chocolate Chip bar, I learned something about antioxidants. I didn't know that "dark chocolate is one of the most potent antioxidants in nature."

Definitely count me in!

Chocolate Chip: One Brilliant Bar!
Legend has it that Albert Einstein was eating chocolate when he came upon the theory of relativity. While chocolate may be good for the mind, we know it’s good for the body. In fact, dark chocolate is one of the most potent antioxidants in nature, with a very high ORAC factor (“Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity” is a fancy term for how much a food protects you against free radical damage). ORGANIC FOOD BAR Chocolate Chip™ has the same formula as our Vegan™ Bar, with the added taste and nutritional power of organic, non-dairy, dark chocolate chips. While eating our ORGANIC FOOD BAR Chocolate Chip™ may not lead to historic discoveries, it will lead to a healthier body and a better mindset!

The Vegan bar's first ingredient is organic almond butter - one of my favorite foods! I find that almond butter tastes even better than peanut butter and I always buy it from MaraNatha!

I like the cranberry bar--
Cranberries contain the most abundant antioxidant phenols when compared with 19 commonly eaten fruits, and they are unique in the fruit world in exhibiting strong antibacterial properties.

Our amazingly delicious Vegan Bars™ contain certified organic premium Agave nectar which has a lower glycemic index than other sugars. That means a stronger, steadier energy boost all day long, without the “crash” you might experience from other bars with refined sweeteners such as high fructose corn syrup or rice syrup. Our Vegan™ bars have the same healthy fats, protein and phytonutrient-rich sprouts as our Original™ version. Vegan: good for body, mind and soul.

Each of their Cranberry bars is loaded with over 20% of whole organic cranberries, pretty cool!

Heather said...

The Wild Blueberry bar is my choice. Here's a cool little something: Science has verified that blueberries are a bonanza for your health — a sumptuous, antioxidant-rich "superfruit" with powerful anti-aging properties.
