I think I picked a bad month to start watching my weight. I have the best of intentions, but there is just so much temptation at this time of year! Cookies, candy, fudge. Christmas cupcakes, donuts, sweet coffee drinks (who me?). Oh my!
Did you know that according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the average American consumes 156 pounds of sugar every year? Yikes! A good portion of that sugar is consumed during the holiday season, when we are surrounded by sugary- sweet holiday treats. Of all the foods we eat, refined sugar is considered to be one of the most harmful, causing series health risks such as inflammation and infection, compromising the immune system and raising insulin levels.
If you have an auto-immune disease like celiac disease, like I do, inflammation can cause a whole lot of issues. But trying to stay away from sugar is hard for most of us.
Enter SIMPLE SQUARES! Snack-enthusiast and Simple Squares’ founder, Kimberly Crupi Dobbins, offers a delicious and healthy alternative to holiday sweets. Simple Squares are whole food snack bars made from just five ingredients: nuts, honey, vanilla, and hints of sea salt and herbs – that’s it. Always free of wheat, gluten, dairy, soy and refined sugars. They are also organic, kosher and raw.
SIMPLE SQUARES are high in protein and other nutrients to keep you full and satisfied-so pumpkin pies and frosted gingerbread bread men won’t be a temptation.
I really like these bars. Since I love coconut, you can probably guess that I would try the coconut bar first. It was moist and chewy and delicious. These bars are very portable and great to throw in your purse or car for a quick snack.
Simple Squares are available in a variety of flavors such as coconut, cinnamon-clove, rosemary, and sage. (I also received a sample of coffee flavor which I think will be available soon.)
Would you like to try new SIMPLE SQUARES?
I am pleased that founder Kimberly Crupi Dobbins is offering a mixed case of three bars of each flavor to one fabulous reader!
