Day 23 ~ These are a few of my favorite things.......

Larabars and Naked Juice. Yummy and nutritious. When I moved into my daughter's hospital room this summer these, along with God's grace, helped energize and sustain me.

I think I've tried almost every flavor of Larabar. I'm not particularily fond of any of the chocolate flavors. I'm not sure why as I am a chocolate lover. I guess when I think of Larabars, I think of fruit and nuts......and that's what I want. Top three flavors: Pecan, Cashew and Carrot Cake.

Carrot Cake is my absolute favorite however it is difficult to find. I was so excited last week, to find that the grocery store I was shopping at not only had Larabars on sale but they also had my favorite flavor! Yep, I bought 'em all. Larabars aren't cheap but I like keeping a few on hand for afternoon "slumps" when the sugar cravings hit. MOST (read the labels as I've found a few different Larabar varieties that aren't completely sugar free) Larabars are simply made from fruits and nuts. I really need to learn how to make my own. Here is a recipe that I would like try.

My favorite flavors of Naked Smoothies are Green Machine and Blue Machine. Yum. Breakfast in a bottle. I usually make my own morning smoothies but if I'm away from home all day and needing a healthy "pick-me-up" this is what I turn to. Like the Larabars, Naked drinks are expensive, but I justified the steep cost because they are healthier then soda pop and I don't buy them very often. Of course homemade smoothies are healthier than Naked Smoothies but I haven't bought a blender that I can use in my car yet.
