I used to eat these all the time for breakfast before I discovered clean eating. I thought they were a healthy alternative to cereal. Check out the LOOOOOOONG list of ingredients on these “healthy” cereal bars:


Scary! As you probably already know, the longer the list of ingredients, the more processed the food is and the worse it is for you. Not only do these bars have a large amount of sugar but they also contain high fructose corn syrup. High fructose corn syrup has been linked to obesity, diabetes, cancer and heart disease. This is certainly not a healthy snack by any stretch of the imagination.

So what if you really want a quick snack in the form of a breakfast/snack bar? Larabars! Larabars are considered clean because the only ingredients in the majority of them are fruit and nuts. And yes, they are very tasty too! And if you’d like to make your own, here’s a recipe for homemade Larabars.
