I’ve been doing fewer and fewer product reviews, but sometimes I come across something, or something comes across my inbox and I’ve just got to try it – and subsequently – share it with you all!

I’m definitely a savory/salty snacker and when the afternoon rolls around, its not sweets that I’m craving. Truthfully, I usually want cheese but I definitely don’t bring cheese to work with me. (That would NOT be a good idea). Ideally I’ll have something a little salty and hopefully crunchy.

Journey Bars are essentially a savory “granola/nutrition” bar with flavors like Coconut Curry, Pizza Marinara, Rosemary, Parmesan Romano and Hickory BBQ. They are made with grains like oats, buckwheat, flax, amaranth, and definitely fit the bill for a delicious, crunchy, savory and healthy afternoon snack.

You can currently find them at these retailers in your area or buy them online. They are also available on amazon!

Like:

  • made with whole grains
  • simple ingredient list
  • savory flavor without too much salt
  • nutrition stats: 200 calories, 8 grams fat, 4 grams fiber, 6 grams protein
  • no GMO’s (genetically modified organisms)

Wish:

  • there was a bit more protein in them, although I know that would affect the flavor/taste (in a perfect world!)
  • they were in thinner pieces (I guess more like crackers) but I guess that defeats the purpose of a “bar” :)

I think we may have found our new favorite neighborhood sushi joint. Which when you move to a new city, is a really big deal. You’ve got to have that one place in the neighborhood that you can really count on. We’ve tried a few here and there (still lots to explore) but I was

This time of year, there is probably something we can all use a little more of. And it isn’t cookies. Sorry. Always the bearer of bad nutrition news…. Our Thanksgiving celebration included a number of amazing dishes (think scallop chowder and shiitake stuffing) but also had TWO kale dishes! I came armed with creamed kale

Last week, I followed a paleo diet for a day, and today I’m going Vegan! I was honestly a little nervous about it considering I’ve been loosely following the paleo plan since last week. I thought I would be hungry all the time (carbs make me hungry!). But realized many of my normal meals happen

daily eats {11.1.11}

Wow, I can’t believe it is already November! I surprisingly didn’t eat too much candy on Halloween, but did drink my share of wine and eat pizza, so I was a little slow-moving this morning. Nothing a little coffee, water and work can’t fix. Sometimes its best to just throw yourself into it! Peet’s Coffee

To say that I’m excited for all of the restaurants that come with a new city, is a huge understatement. We’ve already got a pretty long list going and I’m sure we’ll be adding to it faster than we cross them off. Apartment searching was a great reason to head out and try a few

Last week on our crazy apartment hunting spree we stopped for coffee. (I think we’ve found a place by the way!!!) The line was so long after I placed my order that I decided to roam around the deli section of the grocery store. I came across this: Even though I’m more of a eight
