What I'm Loving: 3.26.10

mojo

Mmmmm Mojo - the "sweet & salty trail mix bars" from Clif.  Now you know I'm a fan of the whole food.  Not so much a fan of the the processed food or the Franken-food . . . but sometimes an apple or banana won't cut it as a convenient meal-replacement when I'm out and about. 

I have been digging these bars lately - they're sweet and salty, crunchy and chewy, which hits most of my cravings.  They're around 200 calories each, but also have 8-10 grams of protein (2-4 grams from nuts, 4-5 grams from soy rice crisps), so they'll keep you feeling fuller, longer. And although you shouldn't get into the habit of eating these instead of whole foods, if you're craving something sweet & salty and/or need a filling snack on the go, these are 70% organic, contain no GMOs, are low-glycemic and have no trans-fats or processed sugars.  So they're better than a 'dog at 7-Eleven or a trip through the McD's drive through, for sure.

I get mine at either Whole Foods or at Trader Joe's, and right now my favorite flavor is the Mountain Mix. Find out more on Clif's website.
