Lisa, the Health Nut

I'm lisa and I loooove healthy food!  The lifestyle I chose to live is eating only natural or organic food products, minimally processed whenever possible.  What I can't stand is that people may  automatically assume all "health food" that I eat isn't flavorful or tasty.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!  Why would I eat stuff that doesn't taste good?  So my mission is to spread the word that "healthy" does not mean "tasteless".  Healthy food can be just as yummy as the not-so healthy types!   I'll let you know what foods are good, and which ones aren't so good. :)

Clif Bar & Company Blueberry Crisp Energy Bar 

Thursday, February 17, 2011 1:08:32 PM


I happen to be a big fan of Clif Bars. My all time favorite ones would have to be the Chocolate Chip and White Chocolate Macadamia Nut and also the Clif Crunch Peanut Butter & White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Granola Bars. They have some pretty tasty foods!

Today’s review is the Blueberry Crisp Energy Bar that I was sent to try for free. I wasn’t exactly thrilled in the beginning to try this one for some reason, I like blueberries and all but I thought they might taste funky in a granola or energy bar. But who am I to judge something solely on it’s name or appearance? Speaking of which, here’s how it looked

The thing that always gets me about Clif Bar & Company energy bars is that they seem tiny, but they actually ARE quite filling. I find them perfect to eat on an empty stomach for an early morning workout before I eat breakfast or whatnot to tie me over.

When I opened the package I immediately smelled a fragrant blueberry aroma. I took a bite, and noticed it was actually pretty sweet. Not sweet like candy, but I could certainly detect a good amount of sweetness. It kind of reminded me of a blueberry filling to a pie or a blueberry pancake syrup sort of flavor. It was crunchy from the almonds, chewy, and soft at the same time. I actually really liked the consistency of this bar, it had a lot going on. There were good sized pieces of nuts, which were fresh and crunchy, and added something special to the bar.

Overall, this bar was better than I thought it would be, and actually quite tasty. THe only drawback for me is that it has 21 grams of sugar per bar. Then again, I believe it’s intended to be an energy bar, so I’m sure some of those carbohydrates and sugar will we used up in the workout! 4 stars

1 bar is 240 calories, 5 grams of fat, 43 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber, 21 grams of sugar and 9 grams of protein.

Did you ever eat something you thought wasn’t going to be that good, and it surprised you? What was it?
