Larabars to the rescue!
I had a large smoothie for breakfast this morning, but while I was last minute cramming mid-morning, my tummy started rumbling. I knew I'd need the Larabar I bought when I was in a pinch, and since I have a midterm today, I didn't really get time to pack a snack. I tried the cinnamon roll larabar. It was so good! Lots of cinnamon...and I figured it had to be full of sugar and stuff to make it that yummy, but the ingredients are so simple: Dates, walnuts, cashews, almonds, raisins and cinnamon. So when they call it a fruit and nut bar...that's all it really is! The dates are so yummy and give it all the sweetness it needs. I would probably use this as a meal replacement along with a smoothie, rather than eating it with a full meal though, since it has about 240 calories and 12 grams of fat (healthy ones). I have to go and buy a box of these now!
