How to Achieve Balance & Crave Freely

Cravings are real.  And you don’t have to be pregnant to get them.  I haven’t been pregnant in….well, a long time, and I have cravings!  Salt, chocolate, salty and sweet…you name it!  But, let’s be honest…don’t we all??  Not only do I get cravings, I also am a snacker.  I will snack in-between meals and sometimes it’s not the best snack ever because I am grabbing for something quick.

So, how do I fix this craving-snack issue of mine?

I don’t.

I don’t deprive myself of what I enjoy.  I work long days, have two kids, I seem to be constantly doing laundry, cooking, cleaning and am always on the go, so when I want a bite of chocolate or sweet, I think I deserve one!  And you do too!

Yep.  It’s the kind of snack with chocolate that’s important.  Don’t go grabbing a candy bar that is filled with sugar that will leave you feeling yuck in about 30 minutes.  Or, while you are eating it, you are thinking “I know I shouldn’t be eating this, it isn’t good for me and it really doesn’t even taste all that great!”  Not like that hasn’t happened to me before or anything  😉

So, what snack do I grab?

Balance.  I grab for Balance.  I believe in treating my mind, cravings and body with equal respect.  I believe in Chocolate Peppermint Patties, Dulce De Leche and Caramel Indulgence, and Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle Bars.  I believe in Balance.  I believe in not denying my cravings but giving me what I want, plus what my body needs…like fiber, vitamins, protein, all in under 200 calories.   I believe in snacking smarter and indulging guilt-free.

  1. i want to try the chocolate peppermint patty. i love that flavor combination. balance bars are my favorite.

  2. Eeek! Seeing them first in the picture, I was thinking hands down Peppermint, but then thoroughly going through the selections, MUST TRY OUT ALL! 😉 I love all of the flavors. Too hard to choose! Depends on par of day and what craving you are having most of. All great flavors on my list.

  3. I would like to try the Chocolate Peppermint Patty first and foremost. I think it looks delicious.

  4. I would love to try the Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle! Honestly, I would love to try all these amazing flavors. I don’t think I’ll be able to resist buying these bars now…they look sooo good!

  5. I am torn between the Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle and the Chocolate Peppermint Patty. I would love to try either of these. Thanks

  6. I would like to try the Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle Bars! They sound really yummy, but so do the rest of the bars!!

  7. These two both look good, Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle or Dulce De Leche & Caramel but if I had to choose one it would be the Dark Chocolate Pecan Turtle.

  8. Life is about Balance. A little sweet with some salt. Some chocolate, with peanuts. Balance Bars seems to just balance that out perfectly for you.
