Happy Wednesday! This is how I feel right now…
So ready for it to be Winter Break:) This week’s WIAW is short and sweet, because I have a review (and giveaway!) for all of you down at the bottom thanks to the generosity of Bare Fruit!
Breakfasts have been one thing…
Overnight Oat Power Parfaits! The Greek yogurt/banana blend makes these so creamy and decadent- but so refreshing at the same time! Banana Berry on the left, Banana PB Spinach on the right
The best snack of this week was this flavor of Siggi’s. Acai and Mixed Berries is my new favorite! I love the low sugar and high protein, too.
After buying an amazing wrap (that must have weighed 2 pounds!) at Whole Foods, I decided to replicate it. Avocado, beans, hummus, veggies, and roasted onions went into a sprouted tortilla to make one of the best wraps I’ve ever had.
And dinner, although not pretty, was also great! Tempeh marinated and baked in my new favorite carrot dressing topped off a kale salad- yum!
Now for what you have been waiting for…
“Apple” and “chip” combined into one? Sign me up! When I got the opportunity to review Bare Fruit’s Cinnamon Apple Chips, I was super excited. While most chips are full of fats and often preservatives, this bag has only two healthy and pure ingredients: Apples and Cinnamon. And to make that even better, the high-quality Washington apples they use are organic! I could barely wait to take a picture before sampling….
I started off by trying them plain. Instantly, I knew the bag wouldn’t last long. They were super crunchy and sweet, and the cinnamon added a perfect flavor!
The next morning, I topped off my whipped banana crockpot oats with a few of them. They held their crunch so well and added a great texture. Success!
Of course, I couldn’t resist adding yet another topping to my yogurt bowl. Actually, I kept it simple this time with just apple chips and strawberries, which went perfectly together. I love that you can still see where the seeds were in the apple slice, showing how minimally processed these are…
….and I also sprinkled a small handful on sprouted bread with cinnamon raisin PB. I don’t think I need to explain how amazing this was:)
As you can tell, I am a huge fan. They are an incredible alternative to sweets and potato chips, and are perfect for bringing on the road:)
Want to win a bag? How about a case? That’s what I thought:) Bare Fruit is offering to send one Modern Girl Nutrition reader a case of these amazing chips. How do you win?
