Everytime I discover a new snack that is natural, I feel a million bucks!

This weekend was going through the supermarket and found this little gem. Upon reading the ingredients, I was quite hopeful since the ingredients sound really natural.

Lara Bars – Best Paleo Hiking Bars

Lara Bar – Paleo bars from the stores!

Lara bars are what we ate for every hike when we were going on strict paleo 3 years ago. I still remembered that we were training with Boeing Alpine club and every weekend while we were in the mountains hiking, we would have our variety of lara bars. It is the quintessential snack / bar that fills us up and keeps us strong! Thinking back, last year, while we were climbing in the Alps, this was my staple.

Justin’s Classic and Maple Almond butter

Another one of our staples is Almond butter – all varieties. I normally have them in little packs in my handbag, climbing bag, workout bag and in the car. I never know when hunger will strike and I do become a gremlin when I am hungry.

Sunday, we went climbing at an indoors rock climbing gym. After several climbs, I was starving and seriously needed some food. I stopped, walked over to my bag, grab my pack of Justin’s maple almond butter with a banana and then proceed to demolish everything. Major victory smile on my face, we went back to the routes and continued climbing until 6pm. It was a great day!

Home Cooked Roast Beef

Lunch is tough for Mark. He is a picky lunch eater because he does not like to reheat food for lunch at work and since we had gone paleo, his options were reduced dramatically since he also does not eat a lot of salad. One of the things he does seem to like is roast beef in wraps.

Paleo lemon super cookies from the stores!

I do love texture and occasionally have a serious case of sweet tooth. Paleo is rather easy if I continue to keep myself also on the move. The reason why I said that is because I just came across the tastiest cookie in the planet. At least in mine. I love these cookies for their texture, their taste and also for the feeling that I get after I read the ingredients list. This cookie is paleo, vegan, non-dairy, gluten-free and definitely tasty.

Simple Square treats with rainbow flavors…oh wait ….they are Paleo, non-dairy, vegan and gluten free too!

ok, I used to think that eating paleo is difficult. However, it would seem things are just changing and Paleo snacks are becoming more mainstream? Or is it because I am searching more and keeping my eye out for it.

I was ransacking the pantry for sweets to tide me over this morning for the 9am workout class. Hungry and yet did not want to kill my recently improving speeds at crossfit….see, I correlate how much better I do to how clean I eat. Anyways, I stumble upon these packets which I had picked up from the PCC groceries the other day.

This tastes simply amazing. I could not believe it when I saw the ingredients. 🙂
