As you know, I love writing about food. But, every so often I realize that I haven't written about some of my favorite food products -- the ones I enjoy regularly. Well, Health Warrior bars are one of them. Health Warrior is based in Richmond, Virginia and is committed to finding delicious ways to get you to eat chia! And they've been very successful. Their small 100-calorie bars are fantastic -- great tasting and loaded with chia. They are the perfect mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack because not only are they healthy, they are satisfying...and only 100 calories.
Three of my favorites are the Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coffee, and Dark Chocolate Cherry. They all taste exactly as they sound because they are made with real, wholesome ingredients. Take the chocolate peanut butter for example -- nice seedy crunch, yet chewy and loaded with peanut butter and chocolate chips.
The ingredients will do your body good. In the Dark Chocolate Cherry, for example, there are white chia seeds, brown rice syrup, cashew butter, rolled oats, dried cherries, dark chocolate, agave syrup, almonds, brown rice crisps, arabic gum, tart cherries, natural flavors, sea salt, mixed tocopherols (vitamin E), and sunflower oil. Many of the ingredients are organic as well. This bar also has 3 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and only 5 grams of sugar.
The Mango bars are fantastic with chunks of dried mango. The Apple Cinnamon makes a great morning or afternoon snack. The Acai Berry is just delish. And the Coconut is probably my all-tiime favorite.
You really can't go wrong with these bars. But, wait, there's more. They just came out with their new Protein Bars, which pack 10 grams of plant protein into every bar. And they are not gritty like other protein bars! The Lemon Goldenberry has whole goldenberries and lots of lemon goodness along with chia seeds, oats, and quinoa. Peanut Butter Cacao is sweet and filling. And the Dark Chocolate Coconut Sea Salt -- I think that speaks for itself.
Why chia? Because it's so good, it's labeled a superfood! Chia seeds are packed with protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids so eat up with no guilt. If you are interested in trying some of the Health Warrior bars for yourself, you'll find them by the box at Amazon here. You can also find them in Whole Foods nationwide. Oh, and all the bars are vegan, gluten-free, and Non-GMO Project Verified. What more could you ask for? Chia redefined.
