Grocery Haul + Protein Bars

August 14, 2015

Sooo this whole post is about food. Everyone loves food though, so it’s cool, right? Right. If you say you don’t love food, then I don’t trust you. And you’re probably lying 😉 just kidding. Anyway… here are some things I picked up at the grocery store this last time. I already had some stuff in the fridge/pantry, so it was just stuff that I ran out of!


  • Sweet potatoes (to make into fries)
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Portobello mushrooms
  • Avocados
  • Pico de gallo
  • Veggie burgers (these are delicious)
  • Almond milk
  • Half & half
  • Egg whites
  • Dannon light n’ fit greek yogurt
  • Silk dairy-free yogurt
  • Fat free strawberry cream cheese
  • Goat cheese
  • Feta cheese
  • Pb2
  • Nature’s path vanilla almond granola (so good)
  • Tuna

I always love looking at people’s grocery hauls to get new ideas!

I also got sent two different protein bars recently and just had to share because they are both uhhhh-mazing. No, I am not getting paid to tell you this, I just like to share products I enjoy with ya’ll!

First up, square bars.



These are vegan and gluten free, which is very allergen friendly! I like that they use all-natural ingredients, and dairy-free usually helps prevent an IBS flare-up. So far every flavor I’ve tried I loved. I also left one in the car one time and it completely melted but I still ate it (read: licked it off the wrapper) and it was just as heavenly.

Next up, detour bars.


I’ve never heard of these actually, but my friend Kim sent me some and man, I am so happy she did! Thank you, Kim! (she is a sweet heart).

These are gluten free, and VERY macro friendly! I tried them all and they are all delicious, but I have to say, my top two favorites were the apple cinnamon and the salted caramel cookie dough. The apple cinnamon literally tastes like apple pie, and the salted caramel cookie dough tastes like a twix bar or something. Obsessed with both.


Favorite protein bar?

What’s a new product you’ve found that you love?

      1. I’ve never heard of those!! Where do you buy them?

    1. I love RX Bars the most, and just wish more places would sell them. I’m also in love with Clif Builder bars; I wish I could find a similar “better” bar – but I haven’t yet! My stomach is quite picky with the bars it likes to handle…

      1. Ooo never heard of RX bars! My stomach is soooo picky as well

    1. Aw yay!!! So glad you enjoyed the bars! I love the Salted Caramel Cookie Dough ones cut up, frozen, and added to yogurt!!

      1. Omg such a good idea!!! Thank you again love, they were amazing!

    1. I actually just tried Detour Bars for the first time and they are delicious. I really like them a lot!

    1. Totally random, but albacore tuna is super high in mercury. I’d try just getting plain white fish tuna instead of albacore. WAY less mercury. I never thought about it till getting pregnant, but when you look up the levels of mercury, there’s really no reason to eat that much mercury when you can just buy another type of tuna and it tastes pretty much the same anyway!

    1. Even though questbars bloat me beyond belief they still are one of my favorites… I do love the KIND chocolate peanut butter bars though when I’m in the mood for some nuts!
      I’m obsessed with Ab’s Protein pancake mix lately, probably because it’s so versatile!
