Vegan Snack Bars Review

Originally posted on Charm of Love:
Hi everyone, I have a bit of a later start today, but I also finish later. After today I’ll only have three days until my holiday ūüôā Today I have a review of snack bars for you, I have been able to try a few Nakd bars but this post contains three different brands. The first bar I tried was The Primal Pantry’s macadamia and coconut paleo bar, I’m not fussed on trying a paleo diet but this bar is vegan and sounded tasty so I bought it. These bars are gluten free, grain free, and also free from refined sugar, GMOs, soya, vegetable oil and sulphites. Much like the Nakd bars it’s full of simple ingredients and is raw, it has a lighter colour than most other bars that I’ve seen. Unlike some coconut products that I’ve tried recently the coconut was not soapy, it was just creamy and delicious and the strips of coconut added another texture to the bar. The overall taste was sweet and nutty…

Strawberry Protein Cheesecake

?? So, a few months back I posted my low fat protein pumpkin cheesecake recipe. I posted some recommendations of other flavors at the bottom of that recipe, but I still had people complaining that they don’t like pumpkin and don’t know how to modify for the recommended substitutions. So I decided to help out!! This is the exact same recipe I used a few months back, just modified without pumpkin pur√©e.? I made a delicious strawberry cheesecake and it turned out fantastic!! I feel like I’m cheating on my diet, but I’m not! The best part of this cheesecake, aside from it being low calorie, low fat, and delicious — is that it is so versatile. You can make whatever flavor you fancy by trying out different yogurt and protein powder flavors. Seriously, get creative!!! ?? Ingredients: 16 ounces fat free cream cheese (room temperature works best) 2 individual package Dannon Light n Fit Greek Yogurt (I chose to use Strawberry Cheesecake flavor, but you can…
