May is Mediterranean Diet Month and what better way to celebrate then to snack on bars inspired by the Mediterranean Diet! The Mediterranean Diet has been studied and noted by scores of leading scientists as one of the healthiest lifestyles in the world and was recently touted by the The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Council that helps shape the country's official dietary guidelines, as something Americans should follow. The Mediterranean Diet emphasizes eating more whole grains, fruits, greens and healthy fats, and less meat and sweets.
To help you get started on a healthier diet following this healthy Mediterranean diet, Mediterra recently launched six nutrition bars all based on the Mediterranean Diet. All the ingredients are from the Med region.
Featuring the first truly savory-flavored bars, Mediterra bars are loaded with fiber, nutrients and vitamins instead of complex sugars and saturated fats. Mediterra bars also feature ingredients native to the Mediterranean region including sesame seeds, sundried tomatoes, capers, walnuts, black olives and Greek honey.
Most importantly, these bars are all-natural, non-GMO and Gluten-Free!
The six bars come in three specific varieties with two flavors to choose from in each category:
The First Ever “Savory Bars:” The bars are rich in vegetable content, but low in calories, sodium and sugar and contain protein-rich pea crisps and a touch of olive oil. Each Savory Bar is 1.4 ounces and contains six grams of protein and fiber. They are certified kosher and dairy free. The Savory Bars serve as an alternative to sweet snacks providing super foods and amaranth, an ancient grain. Flavors include:
My children really enjoyed these:
“Sesame Honey Energy Bars:” –Traditionally known as “Pasteli,” these bars are dairy-free and contain only a few ingredients including, roasted sesame seeds, Greek honey, pistachios from Aegina Island or orange peel, respectively. The combination provides natural and long lasting energy. Each bar is 1.3 ounces, contains five grams of protein and two grams of fiber. Flavors include:
- Sesame Seed/Pistachio/Greek Honey
- Sesame Seed/Orange/Greek Honey
And my favorite:
“Yogurt and Oat Bars” –Bottom covered with yogurt-style coating, the bars are 1.6 ounces, certified kosher and contain seven grams of protein. The bars also feature fig paste, sunflower seeds and raisins. Flavors include:
- Yogurt/Oat/Cherry Pistachio
- Yogurt/Oat/Apricot Pistachio.
These bars are great for on-the go snacking, helping you start a healthier diet and lifestyle and keeping you from getting hungry! They are definitely unique and different than any other snack bar I have ever had!
You can purchase Mediterra Bars for a MSRP of $1.99 or shop online from Mediterra's online store.
