Zing Bar

Ok so if you need a snack on the go and you forgot your carrot sticks these can be your new "go to!"
On Friday night Jeff and I got to go down to Seattle to do some marketing for his new business and half way down he got hungry. I pulled out one of these, my favorite flavor, chocolate coconut bars and he couldn't get enough of it. Infact the next day on the drive home he ate my spare that I had in my purse.

What's great about these you ask?
  • wheat free
  • dairy free
  • soy free
  • packed with protein
  • all natural ingredients
  • made in Seattle
  • made by nutritionists
  • balanced amount of carbs, protein, and fat
  • sweetened naturally
The list goes on but you get the idea. I love them! They are a bit pricey but lets all remember that a) your health has to be worth it to you and b) snacks should be eaten in moderation so it's ok if they cost a little because you don't need to munch on them all day.

So, check them out!
And thanks to my very own brother in law they carry these at Haggen! Sweet!

The Story of Zing Bars found here.
It all started innocently enough. As practicing nutritionists, we simply wanted to find a good nutrition bar we could recommend to our patients. But despite our best efforts, there just weren’t any on the market we really liked. If a particular bar was nutritionally balanced, it left something to be desired in the taste department. If it tasted good, it was low in protein and fiber, or full of artificial ingredients, unhealthy fats and empty calories.

Then we came up with a deliciously different idea.

We could create our own all-natural nutrition bar. Our take on the perfect snack. A bar with everything we wanted it to have, and nothing we didn’t. A healthy balance of carbs, protein and beneficial fats, but no artificial sweeteners, colors or preservatives. No trans fats, synthetic vitamins, or allergy-aggravating gluten, wheat or soy protein.

In short, a nutrition bar that everyone- including nutritionists and other healthcare professionals- could love. Zing! Now we hope that you love it too.
