Healthy Eating with a Busy Lifestyle

Many people associate a healthy lifestyle with bland food that’s expensive and inconvenient. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The best nutrition bars offer the key nutrients you need for optimum health while still tasting great. Bars, like Santa Barbara Bars, packed with super foods like sunflower seeds, peanut butter, and chia seeds can provide a quick energy boost first thing in the morning, when you’re dragging in the afternoon, or after a long workout. Get the nutrition you need with the ingredients and flavors you want without sacrificing taste.

Nature Brings Taste and Nutrients

Flavor from wholesome, organic ingredients can provide the vitamins you need without preservatives and processed sugar. We strive to bring you flavor combinations that keep your taste buds satisfied. Our nutrition bars are made of natural, non-GMO ingredients like:

  • Chia seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Coconut
  • Gluten-free oats
  • Cashews

The sweetness of coconut combined with vitamin-rich almonds not only tastes great it’s giving you a hit of vitamin E, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Another of our favorite ingredients—dark chocolate—adds sweetness along with long-term health benefits.

A Swedish study that followed more than 31,000 women over a 9-year period showed the risk of heart failure was cut by as much as a third in those who consumed one to two servings of dark chocolate a week, as reported by Women’s Health. You can satisfy those chocolate cravings and eat foods that contribute to your fitness goals.

Nutrition on the Go

Eating on the go makes maintaining a healthy lifestyle difficult. You can find yourself skipping meals or grabbing fast food on the way to work. Chips and candy bars from a vending machine may be your only options when you need something to carry you through a long afternoon. When you’re in a hurry, you don’t want to stop and figure out what to take along for a snack. The solution—nutrition you can grab on the go.

Healthy Eating with a Busy Lifestyle

Santa Barbara Bars are the perfect snack for work, school, or on a daytrip. You don’t need to pre-package anything. Put one in your gym bag for an after-workout pick-me-up. Keep one in your purse or briefcase to get you through the afternoon doldrums. Smart snacking will keep you going strong without derailing healthy goals.

A busy lifestyle should not keep you from taking care of your body. When you can eat right anywhere, anytime, you take strides towards keeping the balance your body needs to perform at its best. Even if you’ve just started eating healthy and exercising more, every bite moves you towards a healthier, stronger you. Keeping a nutrition bar at hand will support your lifestyle and goals when it’s the hardest.

Stay on Track

Remember, healthy doesn’t mean boring. It means putting yourself first so you’re ready to handle any challenge that comes your way. When your body is fueled with the vitamins and minerals it needs, you can power through every day knowing you’re at your best.
