Doesn't that picture up there make your mouth water? I know mine does just looking at it. I mean, look at all that icing! I bet you want to know what it is, don't you?
That's right. It's a Quaker Soft Baked Bar. The one in the picture is the Cinnamon Pecan Bread, and they also have a Banana Nut Bread. Honestly, I think I'd like the banana one better than the cinnamon one, but the only way to know for sure is for me to try both of them. I like carrying wholesome foods in the van with me to snack on, so I plan on buying these the next time I grocery shop. Each bar has only 140 calories, and since I am kind of counting calories these days, these bars would be a perfect breakfast snack for me. They also have 5 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein, which is awesome. I am learning that foods with fiber and protein keep you feeling fuller longer, which is exactly what I need.
My kids would like them too, and since they will be finishing school for the year this week, I am going to have to keep my pantry stocked with healthy snacks for them. I am trying to have them eat better, too, since both my teenagers could stand to lose a few pounds. I haven't exactly set the best example for them with the foods that I eat myself, which is something I have been trying to change. I believe that when they see me making healthier food choices, they will do the same.
I mean, our kids follow our lead, and do as we do, so why not set a good example?
