Balance Bars Review & Giveaway

What is Earth Day?
  1. Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the  Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.
    This year I was fortunate to have the opportunity to not only celebrate Earth Day myself BUT to help spread the word about staying healthy while thinking about and celebrating Earth Day with Balance Bar. 

    I have been a huge fan of Balance Bar since last year when I decided  to change my lifestyle. I changed the way I ate, the way I looked at food and the way I managed to keep myself on the right track. And during that journey I did a little research and found out Balance Bar would be the best fit. A year later, I am in love with Balance Bars I eat them after my workout for that boost of protein and best of all when I get my sweet cravings I can always count on Balance Bars to be there for me. Even when on the go I have found that Balance Bars are very convenient and tasty for me at the same time. I am thrilled to be able to review their Balance Bars Dark Chocolate Crunch Bars for Earth Day! 

    I am a big chocolate lover when it comes to sweets. Knowing that candy is no longer on my list I know that the Balance Bars Dark Chocolate Crunch Bars can help me satisfy my cravings in a healthy way with no regrets. Now I am no fitness trainer, but if I had to recommend a delicious way to help with those chocolate cravings I would totally recommend the Dark Chocolate Crunch Bars by Balance Bars. Especially for myself, I always get a sweet tooth after my workout session at the gym. But trying to find that perfect bar with the right amount of nutrients and protein I always find myself with a Balance Bar. 

    Some amazing facts about the bar if you didn't know: The Dark Chocolate Crunch Bar is 100% Rain-forest alliance certified Cocoa. It is Gluten free (my favorite fact about the bar). 13 grams of protein which is amazing to me. This is one of the main reasons why I love this Balance Bar. It has a high amount of protein. 4% fiber which is also another plus in my book. Excellent source of Antioxidants. Vitamins A,C,E and Vitamin D. And it has Kosher. The ingredients in these bars follow the 40-30-30 nutrition principle which is a proven formula developed by scientists to help stabilize blood sugar levels and represents the caloric ratio your body needs to enjoy lasting balanced energy and satisfy hunger for longer.
