Friday Favorite: 180 Degrees Trail Mix Crunch Bars

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Gotta love a bar with a good crunch! And top that crunch off with a burst of fruit and you have yourself a 180 Degree Trail Mix Crunch Bar.

I love that these gluten-free, kosher, 100% vegan and all natural bars have a totally different texture than any other bar I have tried. They have a really crunchy, call it actually crispy, snap that is surprisingly tasty and perfect for breakfast or snack time. 180 Degree Snacks achieves this perfect crispy crunch by oven baking the bars… delicious!

These bars come in two varieties including, Almond Cashew, and my favorite, Cranberry Pomegranate. 180 Degrees also makes other products including Clusters, Nutty Rice Bites and a Trail Mix Crunch.

Congratulations to 180 Degree Snacks for making a perfectly crispy and crunchy gluten-free bar and for being awarded this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com! Cheers!

Friday Favorite: Trader Joe’s Apple & Mango Fruit Bars

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

I like things simple… pure… natural… and no fuss. That is why I was thrilled to find the new Fruit Bars at my local Trader Joe’s.

Made with just fruit (my favorite the Apple & Mango has just that as ingredients… JUST apples and mangoes) these bars are not only gluten-free, but vegan and raw. They also have no additives, no preservatives, no synthetic colors or artificial flavors.

The other yummy flavors they come in are: Apple & Banana, Apple & Coconut, and Apple & Strawberry.

Best yet… they are only .99 cents per bar!

It’s kinda hard to lug around apples and mangoes in my teeny-tiny purse, so these Fruit Bars do the trick and let me have my fruits – and purse space too! Packed with 2-3 grams of fiber and only 90 calories per bar these are the perfect choice for BeFreeForMe’s Friday Favorite! Congratulations!

Friday Favorite: Engage Organics Spices

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

For this week’s Friday Favorite, we’re going to spice things up a bit! And that spice is organic, gluten free, salt free and non-GMO.

Say hello to Engage Organics Spice Blends! I love that these spice blends are SALT free, as well as gluten-free, since salt-free spice blends that are also gluten-free are very hard to find!

They include: It’s-A-Dilly (great on fish dishes and blended as a dip); Garlicsaltless (one ½ a teaspoon is worth a clove of garlic!); All Purpose (great on everything!); Go-Grill-A-Rub (perfect for grill-masters); Lemon-Pepper (my favorite on chicken); Mexi-Mix (great for tacos, nachos and more); Sweet Cinn (LOVE this sprinkled on top of my gluten-free muffins before baking!); and the Tuscan-Mix (which is scrumptious blended with olive oil for dipping your gluten-free bread).

All fabulous varieties, all gluten-free and all SALT free! For these reasons Engage Organics is awarded this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com! Cheers!

Friday Favorite: Bonelli Simply Sesame Spreads

The flavors that the Bonelli’s Sesame Spreads come in are awesome too: Pure Roasted Sesame, for the pure taste of sesame; Vanilla with Almond Bits, for a sweetness and crunch that makes a banana and apples extra special; Pistachio with a Hint of Cardamom, that is fantastic generously smeared over pear slices; and last, the Sugar-Free variety, for those that are watching their sugar intake.

Friday Favorite: Nana’s Gluten-Free Cookies

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

Back to school is here! And those lunches are being packed once again.

Along with the sandwiches, fruit, vegetables and snacks, sometimes a cookie is just what it takes to make a lunch box packed ever so sweet.

I discovered Nana’s Cookies earlier this year while at a trade show in California and I’ve been hooked ever since. I have always been a fan of Nana’s and have written a couple of blog posts in the past about their amazing Cookie Bars. So, I was more than thrilled to discover that they had a variety of delicious traditional gluten-free cookies too. The flavors are Chocolate, Chocolate Crunch, Ginger, and Lemon. All are delicious and worthy of a special lunchbox treat.

And best yet… all of Nana’s Gluten-Free Cookies are also free of corn, soy, dairy, eggs and casein.

All of these delicious reasons are why Nana’s Gluten-Free Cookies are awarded this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com. Congratulations!

Friday Favorite: Spiru-Tein Gold High Protein Energy Meal

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

This week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Spiru-Tein Gold, a great tasting high protein meal replacement that I have been counting on for years.

After working out in the morning, I love to blend-up a spoonful or two of Spiru-Tein Gold with some coconut or almond milk, and sometimes even some fresh fruit. With 12 grams of complete protein, Spiru-Tein Gold gives you the much needed energy replacement that your body needs right after a workout.

Spiru-Tein Gold is gluten-free, sugar free and soy free. It is also non-GMO, vegetarian and the protein is derived from whole food sources: chia, rice, pea and flax.

I love the way that Spiu-Tein tastes too. The flavors are great. My favorite is the Banana Berry Blast, but other flavors include Chocolate Cherry, Tropical Fruit, Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry.

This week’s Friday Favorite gives the energy I need, any time of day. Congratulations for Spiru-Tein Gold!
