Travel Food: The Pure Bar

Food is very important to our family. Travel sometimes can put challenges in eating healthy or just getting enough fiber. Our family tradition is to carry a healthy fruit bar where ever we go. It is important that we read labels and find a variety of energy bars that offer flavor and nutrition. We are currently enjoying "The Pure Bar”, an organic, GMO free and Gluten free fruit bar that contains antioxidants, proteins, fiber and lots of flavor.  The Pure Bar is designed to help children and adults eat healthy. This bar is favored by Vegetarian folks who look for key ingredients that will nourish the body. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to eat these delicious bars. You just need to be hungry and excited about giving your body the necessary nutrients. They offer a variety of flavors for you to choose from and experience. Right now we are favoring the Banana Coconut bar and the Chocolate Brownie bar. When you travel take “The Pure Bar” with you and a
