I don’t know if you have noticed, but I am beginning to realize that these days, people are starting to live healthier. They exercise more and watch what they eat. I don’t know if it’s because we are now little older and somewhat wiser, but I do know that Kevin and I have been trying to live a healthier lifestyle. I remember the days when we were still in college. We would stuff ourselves silly with all kinds of unhealthy snacks and food. These days, we make a point to look for more wholesome food when we go grocery shopping. Another thing that we have learnt over the years is that we should not skip breakfast and that it’s alright to snack, as long as it’s done in moderation and we snack on healthy snacks.
We are always on the go and that’s why we love simple, easy to eat meals and snacks. While we were out shopping the other day, we came across a new product by Quaker Oats – the Quaker Soft Baked Bar that comes in two flavors, Cinnamon Pecan Bread and Banana Nut Bread. They looked so good and yummy; we just had to try it. It makes a great breakfast snack as well as something that we can snack on to keep us going until our next meal. It is made with real fruits and nuts that is perfect when we want to eat on the go. If you have a little more time, you should try warming it up in the microwave for a real bakery experience. It’s totally delicious! Not only is it tasty, it’s really healthy too! At only 140 calories, it’s packed with 5g of Fiber, 6g of Protein and it’s an excellent source of 5 B-Vitamins!
Out of the two flavors, I totally love the Banana Nut Bread. Made with real bananas and almonds, the Quaker Soft Baked Bars Banana Nut Bread flavor is not only really tasty but it only contains 3.5g of total fat per serving! It’s really good when I warm it up in the microwave for breakfast. I taste like eating a yummy slice of banana bread for breakfast! Kevin on the other hand likes the Cinnamon Pecan Bread flavor. It contains crunchy pecans, chewy raisins and a cinnamon flavor that he totally loves. Not only does he eat it for breakfast but he would eat it as a snack in the office or when he is driving around at the port. We both love Quaker’s Soft Baked Bars. Not only is it yummy but it’s healthy too. Don’t just take our word for it. Go out and get some for yourselves today!
