Raising The Bar, Vegan Protein Packed Snacks, & 9 to 5
Yesterday I blogged a bit about some of the vegan treats I was introduced to recently when my parents came home from a Candy Show in Chicago. Today I thought I would share a few more! First up is the one you see above! Orchard Bar...Fruit and Nuts! It was pretty good but the fruit was very gooey! Take that for what it is - if you like that or if you don't. For me - it's all about flavor - and it packed a powerful punch that is for sure!
Speaking of packing a punch...these flavored, roasted Fava Beans are pretty amazing snacks! It was a very small bag yet they have 10 grams of protein in them. I'm not one who counts protein often but I know some people have asked me about good vegan protein sources in the past...FAVA BEANS (among other beans) is one of the many suggestions of plant based proteins. I always like to remind people about the Protein Myths, too! Remember TOO MUCH Protein often causes gout and other health issues and complications.
Yesterday I also showed a few of the flavors from Bobo's Oat Bars and here is another one! I think it's their NEWEST offering...Lemon Poppyseed and I have to say I think it my favorite one so far!
Another Part B to yesterday's post is a bit more about the vocal band HOME FREE. Below you will see one of their many videos! Between now and August I will be posting more and more of their songs so be sure to keep an eye out! These guys are a VOCAL Band. Everything they do is with their VOICES. Most times you will hear instrument-like sounds but it's their 'beat box guru' that is providing the 'band'. They are truly amazing, entertaining, and I can't wait to see them LIVE in August!
