Who Gnu???.....Flavor&Fiber Bars

With a name like Gnu Foods you're probably wondering what such a silly named company would make. They make Snack Bars (think Luna, Cliff, Larabar, etc), YUMMY snack bars (actually more like healthy dessert bars)! Each of the bars I’ve tried so far – Banana Walnut, Chocolate Brownie, Espresso Chip and Peanut Butter have tasted just like they should – freshly baked goods, straight from the Gnu Foods kitchen – not like any bar I’ve ever had. They also have the most heavenly texture – chewy and soft, but with a delightful crunch from whole flaxseeds thrown into the mix. I'm pretty sure that fiber bars don't get any better than these. I mean, just look at the ingredients for the Banana Walnut bar:

• Gnu High Fiber Blend™ (whole rolled oats, organic whole wheat flour, wheat bran, organic kamut, psyllium, flax, millet)
• chicory root inulin
• fruit juices
• rice dextrins
• apples
• canola oil
• walnuts
• rice
• plums, bananas
• wheat protein isolate
• natural flavors
• baking powder

Here is the nutritional information for their bars, I like that they are vegan and if you are a WW kinda point counter, these bars only have 2 pts per bar (due to the 12 grams of fiber in each bar, that's right 12 grams of fiber!).

They have seven delectable flavors....
♥ Banana Walnut
♥ Chocolate Brownie
♥ Cinnamon Raisin
♥ Espresso Chip
♥ Lemon Ginger
♥ Orange Cranberry
♥ Peanut Butter

I found mine at Whole Foods for about $1.99 a bar, which isn't too bad for a treat. I thought I would look at their website and see if they have better pricing. Not only do they have better pricing, BUT they have a seven bar sampler special. To try all seven flavors it's only $10.95...shipping included!! The only down side is that you only get this special deal one time per customer. Mine are being shipped as I type this and I should get them on Monday!! Overall I would still say the pricing on the website it better if you buy these bars in larger batches. The price goes down per bar the more of them you purchase. I will probably be buying more of the Chocolate Brownie, Peanut Butter and Espresso Chip in the very near future (they are really good, but like I mentioned before they are also more like dessert than an everyday snack). Here is the address for their website, check them out!!

First off I would like to say superb blog! I had
a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had a
tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!
