After spending a long time inspecting the ingredients on all the snack bar choices in the local food store, none of them -or at least their ingredients-justified a purchase to satisfy my craving.  They had too much sugar, lacked good protein and contained many ingredients that had no nutritional value.  However, I will be the first on to share that munching on a healthy and nutritious bar is an great way to curb mid-morning or mid-afternoon cravings. So imagine my let down when I can’t find the bars with the right crunch and combination. 

With the help of nutritionist extraordinaire Ms. Syreeta Bernal, I have decided to make my own collection and I am sharing the nutritious fun with you. This by the way is a quick ploy to get other family members to chime in and create their own bar “menu” by choosing their own ingredients.
