Homemade Lara Bars

I have a thing against convenience foods. Since becoming a health food nut many years ago, I've given up convenience foods. Anything that's processed and packaged just isn't my thing. The exception lies in those super healthy convenience foods, and trust me, it's got to be super healthy if I'm going to eat it. I'm thinking of perhaps a raw organic energy bar. Or some yummy whole grain gluten-free crackers. Or a portable packet of nut butter. The ingredients have to be pure, otherwise I'm not touching it.

We recently traveled to New York to visit family (the reason for my blogging absence lately). Traveling on a plane with a one year old is rough, man. It's exhausting in so many ways. But I was prepared with as many healthy snacks as I could to get me through because for me, if I'm well nourished, then I can pretty much do anything. For our five hour flight, I packed fresh fruit, kale chips, homemade trail mix, some organic dehydrated raspberries (the baby loved those), and these Lara bars. The bars were the first snacks to be eaten. I've made different versions of these 3-ingredient bars and my favorite combo so far is pecans, almonds, medjool dates, and the all-star (not so) secret ingredient; a whole vanilla bean. Yup, put the entire vanilla bean (pod and all) in the food processor with the rest of the ingredients and trust me, your life will be changed forever. Ok, maybe not, but you get the point.

  1. The manager at this place suggested we make custom choices and make the menu a little more personalized. This is the best nye party nyc venue, and next time you need to hold a conference, have a wedding, or set up a whiskey tasting, think about doing it at this venue.

  6. Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR Onokun helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on : Dronokunherbalcure@gmail.com
