Do you eat LUNA bars?

I sure as heck do. As "the whole nutrition bar for women," these tasty treats (which can be eaten by guys, too) satiate hunger pangs and cravings with equal parts nutrition and flavor. And there are a variety of flavors. Some of which even include chocolate. Would you be surprised, however, to learn that my favorite flavor doesn't include this heavenly ingredient? Shocks even me.

Toasted Nuts 'n Cranberry—so good! This bar is entirely natural and 70% organic. And as I look at the label, I see noteworthy amounts of calcium, folic acid and antioxidants. Most importantly, this bar has 9 grams of protein. And we all know how important protein is to working muscles. (If you don't, stay tuned! I'll explain in a future post.) I keep a few bars in my gym bag for post-workout snacks.

I would advise you, however, to read every LUNA label closely if you have a nut, wheat or dairy allergy. LUNA bars tend to employ these ingredients throughout.

But if you're free to eat them, please do! They're delicious, and the LUNA company as a whole is impressive. I spent some time on the LUNA website today and was surprised to learn that they sponsor a cycling team, run a mom's club, fund a film festival and raise money for breast cancer research. Such noteworthy projects!

And speaking of noteworthy, I discovered something else on the LUNA website: Berry Almond. I never knew this LUNA bar flavor existed! Ever have it? I'm so on the hunt for it. If good, it could surpass the aforementioned to become my new favorite.

Do you have a favorite LUNA bar?

Berry Almond is divine! I traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia with a friend to do some wine tasting and we stumbled (no, not literally) upon a shopping district with a health foods store. I jumped for joy when I saw the Berry Almond LUNA bars sitting on a shelf. I bought two which was a very good thing because it blew Toasted Nuts 'n Cranberry out of the park. Though I'm not sure I'll ever be able to consume the second one—It's like a good bottle of wine that must be saved for a special occasion, yet no occasion seems to be special enough.
