Hi I'm Colleen Kelly your resident blogger. I want to welcome you to my blog.

Hi I’m Colleen Kelly your resident blogger. I want to welcome you to my blog.






















Okay  there is good new people!!!

If you love a candy bar once in a while,  and want to eat right and lose weight but don’t want to give up that candy bar..

I’ve got good news for you!

I’ve been shopping and I have 3 choices that are healthy and good for you


(These are NOT candy bars, I repeat, NOT …candy bars!!)

These are protein and nutrition bars and much better! I here to prove you will never have to fee unsatisfied and choose candy over nutrition ever again!

Trust me,

you will be asking

Snickers …..who ?!


These are just 3 bars that give you every reason to stay on a healthy path!

These are just 3 bars that give you every reason to stay on a /healthy path!

I wanted to remind you guys to take a look at this isle of your local store.  It offers so much to choose from and a healthy alternative that will have you feeling better about yourself and not feeling like you’re giving anything up along the way……. except feeling guilty.

I have to say though, I’ve been sorta feeling that way……… these bars are THAT good!!.

There are ALL kinds out there now and you can find just about anything you want.  Nuts, no nuts, If you choose one with a lot of nuts you can get one with about 100 grams of fat  so please read carefully …..BUT…compared to a candy bar,  a lot of any of their fat calories come from mostly the nuts and nuts are a good fat.  Where candy bars will be another story.

If you don’t like nuts,  choose crispy, soft, chocolate.. etc..

The one kind I did have a hard time finding was NO chocolate whatsoever.  I’m talking about the power bar isle.

You can find boxed bars , cereal bars etc.. that are NOT chocolate…but in the power bar/ nutrition bar isle, not so much so ….and if you have a problem with chocolate or don’t care for it, or choose not to eat it , (some people actually do lol ) you may have a hard time.

I have looked pretty extensively for that hihg protein  bar with no chocolate and the only place was in a Sports Authority a few miles away from where I live.

Vanilla Crisp by PowerBar .  This company has changed their 20 gram Protein Vanilla bar packaging and like I said.. the hig protein one….it’s ALSO now VERY difficult to find. 

So I do have a link that if you would like  something with no chocolate, you can get it , though you may have to order via the internet.


But on the site you will have no problem at all.


Here is the link:

I wasn’t looking for a protein bar exactly just something to eat differently than I usually do.

(I flagged the best parts of the nutritional information.  These are all what we look at first……. and they passed my test.)

This bar is SO good as well.  Though it DOES have ONE hitch.  The fat Calories.  But They ARE nuts and a lot of nuts can be healthy fats for you as I said earlier, and almonds especially are the lowest in fat and saturated fats.  Very low-fat for nuts.


So I DID give this the Seal of approval!.

#3.  Kashi  GoLean Crisp!    My Flavor Choice:    Chocolate Almond

This one was fantastic as well!

The ONLY thing about this bar was its carbohydrate amount. 

It’s higher than I like for a simple bar.  But if it’s a day where carbs are not that much of a worry for you and possibly you aren’t counting carbs, I don’t really that closely I stick to counting calories most of the time lately.  This bar was a good choice!.

The wrap up


Okay guys that’s the scoop on a few new items I have found.

I wouldn’t steer you wrong.  These are all healthy, and delicious choices that will leave you feeling you don’t need to really go buy that Snickers, Hershey or whatever candy bar of choice. 

I don’t call them candy.  they AREN’T……  but you walk away  feeling satisfied.

If you can do that wouldn’t you rather eat healthy, feel good about your choice and stay on point with what makes you feel good about yourself ?

I hope maybe this can’t help out in that.  😉

So thanks for coming to the blog. I appreciate it so much that you all take your time to spend a few minutes here!.  It means So much to me.

Thank you.

    I used to eat Granola bars (chocolate flavor – I am guilty :P) in between my classes. I could always come home and eat healthy food, so why waste money on my college cafeteria? 😉

    But, I switched over from bars to another little snack called – Kar’s Sweet & Salty Mix (The one we have in our college has a mix of nuts, candy, pumpkin seed, raisins etc). It’s healthy and satisfactory 😉

    Since we are talking about health, let me mention something else I am doing right now: Intermittent fasting (basically you fast on regular intervals. I am doing daily intermittent fasting in which you shorten your eating period to 8 hrs and your fasting – or non eating period – to the rest 16 hrs). As per what I have read, the method allows us to lose body fat and build muscles later – or either one of them, as you like it.

    Anyways, thank you for sharing your insights on nutrition bars, Colleen 🙂
