Bars, bars, bars… Of course eating whole foods are always the best decision, but when eating on the go, properly made bars can fill quite a need. Yet so many of these options are packed with dates, have 100s of ingredients, or just plain taste awful. If you’re someone who hates the ubiquitous date-packed paleo bar, I have something for you. That something? Simple Squares.
Simple Squares are FIVE ingredient, flavor packed, paleo-approved, fully organic bars. Oh, and they are 100% free of dates.
I recently spoke in front of many kids and families about the importance of nutrition. One of the highlights I spoke about were ingredient labels. The rule I make for the attendees was simple: If you can’t pronounce anything on an ingredient label or isn’t a real ingredient, don’t buy it. Simple Squares are one of the only widely available bar to fit that bill.
The ingredients in Simple Squares are usually something like this: Nuts, honey, herbs or REAL flavoring, sea salt. And speaking about the flavors, you’re not going to get bored any time soon.
Here are the flavors: cinna-clove, coffee, coconut, chococo, chili-pep, ginger, sage, and rosemary.
Clove, sage, rosemary, ginger… WHAT! Finally some savory paleo bars! And, for those of you who know my obsession… COFFEE! The coffee is by far my favorite option. Not too sweet, and, well, they taste like COFFEE. They are incredible.
Where have I been utilizing these bars, you ask? After workouts, primarily. This is where I usually don’t have an appetite but feel much better if I have some type of food in my system. This is also a good utilization for the faster dissolving honey in the Simple Squares.
Finally this is a paleo/primal friendly bar that is date free, and has savory flavors. My only wish is that they would pop some protein in there, but I can easily have a little beef isolate protein shake on the side if I need a good on the go source.
WHAT IS IT?
Simple Squares are a handful of simple ingredients (usually nuts, honey, flavors) sourced appropriately and in a tasty bar form. Flavors include cinna-clove, coffee, coconut, chococo, chili-pep, ginger, sage, and rosemary.
