Recently, I went to visit Java Nation in Beaverton, Ore. – the newest no-Starbucks alternative for those in favor of supporting small businesses (and besides, Starbucks has zero food offerings for us wheat-free, dairy-free, low sugar folks!) – for some peppermint tea, free wi-fi and goodies.
Fortunately, I discovered Heart Thrive energy bars by Sun Cakes filled with vegan ingredients (and no refined sugars!), not to mention delicious taste, high fiber and calcium.
These sun cakes are power packed! But, beware – while two come in a package, you only want to eat one at a time. They’re very filling, which makes them the perfect healthy snack, but eating two at once just might be too much. I tried the chocolate chip and while very wholesome the chocolate chips gave it a nice kick. Oh, and I just saw on their website that when you place your first online order you receive 6 free sun cakes. Nice!
This is now my fave new snack when on the go.
Do you have a favorite wheat-free, dairy-free and low sugar snack? If so – do tell!
