Mocha Brownie is not the only flavor available. Other flavors of the new Pure Protein Plus Bars include Cookies and Cream, Mocha Brownie, Apple Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! Which one would you like to try first?! I’ve really enjoyed them all!

All of the new Pure Protein Plus Bars are nutritious and flavorful. They have an impressive amount of protein (20-21 grams) and a sizable amount of fiber (15-16 grams). I also like that they’re very low in sugar!

Incorporating these bars into my daily routine is one way I try to make smart food choices. I always have one of the Pure Protein Plus Bars with me when I head to the gym. In fact, my gym bag essentials are my water bottle, music player, ear phones, and a Pure Protein Plus Bar.

In addition to working out regularly, I also try to consume plenty of fruits & vegetables every day. *Tip: When you opt for seasonal fruits (like blueberries & blackberries right now), you can enjoy produce that’s super fresh & affordable!

Also, I try to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Sometimes I’ll add some fruits or herbs into my water to give it a lovely flavor boost!

Another way I try to take care of myself is by trying to get adequate sleep at night. As a mom of two young kids, I don’t always get as much sleep as I’d like, but I do strive for 8 hours most nights. I like to place my eye mask in the refrigerator for a few hours before bedtime. When I place it over my eyes, it provides a calming, cooling effect. I also love to use my lavender linen spray on my pillow in the evening. The scent of lavender is always so relaxing!
