I have learned what works for my body in the time it took to lose fifty pounds. I go back and forth to extreme dieting to moderation. I find I feel most comfortable when I track my food and follow the 80/20 rule. I eat clean most of the time, but count in little splurges within reason. When I track and count, I do not have the psychological battle with myself. I snack, I track. I bite, I write.
I have decided to start a segment of my blog of product reviews. People are always asking me what I eat and what products I love to keep on hand. I am always trying new products, so this will be a fun segment for me.
This week I have decided to review ThinkThin Bars. It is the most natural pick for me to do my first product review, since I have had one daily for breakfast for over one year. I can honestly say I am a little obsessed with these delightfully decadent bars of heavenly deliciousness. Did I say I was a bit obsessed?
I love these bars first thing in the AM, with my coffee, banana and water. I am very sluggish when I wake up, so making breakfast is out of the question for me, and since I became a morning exerciser I find a smaller breakfast works perfect for my lifestyle. My favorite flavors are Brownie Crunch and Peanut Butter Crunch. I have a Siamese cat Rascal who loves Fancy Feast canned cat food (that’s him in the main pic of this post), and if I do not have it for him in the morning he is beyond cranky. One morning I did not have my bars, and I was crankier than my cat. I am surprised I did not scratch my husband James’ eyes out. ThinkThin Bars are sugar free, gluten free and each bar has about 20 grams of protein to get you happily meowing through your morning.
When I travel I take these bars, and I order room service of coffee and fruit and enjoy my ThinkThin Bars in whatever hotel I find myself in. Vegas was much more enjoyable when I woke up to this amazing sight. I never tire of my bars and they are the one reason (besides the glorious California sun) that I look forward to rising early in the day.
If you are looking for a Protein Bar that does not have sugar and gluten, I think ThinkThin Bars are a win win. Perfect for before and after your workouts, or if you are not a breakfast person like me, perfection with coffee.
