Get Outside with LÄRABAR

Disclosure:  Today’s post is sponsored by LÄRABAR.  Many thanks to LÄRABAR for getting me outside and encouraging me to eat clean.  As always, all opinions are my own. Now, it’s your turn to get outside with LÄRABAR!

For my family, it is important that we choose weekend activities where we can disconnect from our everyday responsibilities and connect with one another.  This weekend, we decided to take advantage of the unusually warm temperatures  and explore more of our backyard along the trails of Bear Mountain.  The beauty of being so close to great hiking trails is that we can take advantage of them at a moments notice.  And, when you hike with a four-year old, it’s really nice to have the flexibility of making it a few hour event and we can head home when the little legs in our family hit their limit.

Get Outside with LÄRABARSince the Bear Mountain trails are really popular with tourists this time of year, we tried to cover some area that was a little bit quieter.  We stumbled on a beautiful section of trails that overlooked our small town of Fort Montgomery.  In the distance you could even make out a few of the landmarks making up West Point.  Plus, it was so quiet that we were able to snack on our LÄRABARs without interruption.

Whether you are on the trails or looking for a quick grab and go snack that contains delicious, wholesome ingredients, LÄRABARs are the way to go.  All LÄRABAR products are gluten-free, non-GMO and Kosher, with the majority of the products being soy-free, dairy-free and vegan.  Since I have a sweet tooth, my obvious favorites are Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip Brownie and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.  But, I will say that I really enjoy some of the other flavors too!  I often grab Banana Bread or Blueberry Muffin as a tasty morning snack at work.

The brand new line of LÄRABAR RENOLA is another handy staple to have in your pantry.  The hearty flavors of Cinnamon Nut, Cocoa Coconut and Berry allow you to easily to add more flavor to your plain yogurt.  You can even mix your RENOLA with milk or your favorite non-dairy alternative for a quick and protein filled breakfast.  And, if you crave a little more sweet in your snacks, feel free to use your RENOLA over fresh fruit.
