Today I have something totally awesome to talk about with you guys. I recently received a fun little package… we all know how much I love Balance Bar already from my previous review of their Balance Bare bar and the s’mores bar in my Energy Bar Wars post. Today I’m here to talk about yet another product by Balance Bar – Nimble bars!
This time, Balance Bar team created a bar specifically targeted towards women. Aside from following their 40-30-30 energy formula, they have also added nutrients and vitamins that are beneficial to a woman’s health and beauty. Additionally, the bar is only 120 calories and is the first bar to be sweetened with Truvia rebiana (as well as brown rice syrup and a small amount of regular sugar – it is second to last on the list though which is pretty good!)
“Fortified with rich antioxidants, beta-carotene and 10mg of FloraGLO® Lutein, nimble provides vital nutrients for healthy skin and seven critical ingredients for women’s bodies: protein (10g); fiber (5g); calcium; iron; folate; and vitamins D and B6. Nimble contains the 40-30-30 ratio of carbohydrates, protein and fat that can help stabilize blood sugar, reduce inflammation, steady your mood and improve energy. Nimble comes in 1.16 ounce single-serve bars and is certified Kosher.”
Flavor wise, I freaking love these bars. I knew I would. The other Balance Bars I have tried were a hit and I didn’t expect anything less than amazing – I was not surprised with the satisfaction the bar delivered for my taste buds. Needless to say, I’m super excited to have been introduced to these lower-calorie women-friendly bars.
Then I also received a cute wristlet. It’s glittery and sparkly and it has a bright green inside. You’ll be happy to know that the little purse’s material is not one of those awful glitter messes that make your whole body glitter from the glitters that fall off – this is just a regular plastic material with glitter sheen infused in it. That sounded smart. I actually don’t know if that’s what you call it. Or if that’s how they make it. But it’s cute nonetheless.
In addition to these bars and wristlet, I have something else to introduce to you guys: Laurel House, lifestyle expert and the woman behind the QuickieChick website, has come out with a book – “QuickieChick’s Cheat Sheet to Life, Love, Food, Fitness, Fashion and Finance on a Less than Fabulous Budget.” That’s a mouthful. The book is full of quick tips that help out in all of the categories mentioned in the title.
“Beyond a fab pair of stilettos, big shot mentor, andgo-to ab workout, QuickieChick reminds us thatwhat every chick really needs are the 3Gs:Gumption, Grace and Guidance.”
QuickieChick is filled with professional advice from business entrepreneurs, exclusive tips straight from celebrities, insightful anecdotes from real women who have “been there and done that,” end of chapter cheat sheets that simplify the steps to success in concise & actionable advice, and fun quizzes that help you find out who you really are. This is the perfect rescue handbook for post-grad girls about life and how to live it… fabulously on a budget.
