Who remembers my colorful partnership with my dearest friends at That’s It to discuss the perks of their super delicious fruit bars? If you didn’t catch it, no worries! You can read all about it here. Now that we’re transitioning into fall, I feel like the summer vibes of fruity feels and prints starts to dissipate and fall fantasies of Thanksgiving platters start coming into the picture. Fall always reminds me of pumpkin patches and lush farmer’s markets full of vibrant vegetable spreads just ripe for the picking. The taste wizards at That’s It have whipped up a new snack bar with a surprising new edge – Veggie bars!
Now you’re probably thinking .. come on Tara, really? Veggie bars? Gross! Absolutely not! I’ll admit, the initial thought was puzzling to me as well. I am happy to report, however, I find these bars pleasantly surprising and appetizing! To me, they taste nothing like beans and more like a natural cacao flavor. Just like their fruity counterparts – they are gluten free, vegan & Kosher friendly, non-GMO, and no preservatives. They are black bean based (remember our important discussion on bowel movements?, bingo!), and they have four flavor options: pea, kale, carrot, and corn. Personally, the carrot is my fave! It’s very sweet!
I love having the ability to tote these around – they’re in my gym bag (they’ve got protein in them), in my car, in my purse, and in my desk at work. As much as I absolutely adore the fruit bars, I can’t eat sugar all day. Getting my dose of veggies helps me feel a little more balanced when I can’t squeeze in a full meal! Did I mention they are less than 100 calories and 0 g of fat? Yes please!
Take a stroll with me through the Dallas Farmer’s Market – I found some gems!
