Friday Favorites

Hey Hey Hey!

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week…uhhhh where did the time go?

Last year I made a ton of fun Thanksgiving recipes for the blog and I’m sorry guys but the holidays kind of snuck up on me this year…ooops! Don’t worry though I do have one fun Thanksgiving appetizer to share next week that is so delicious and literally takes 2 minutes to throw together. 

Stay tuned!

Today I figured it had been awhile since I’d done a Friday Favorites post and I have discovered some pretty amazing products over the past month. These aren’t just products I’ve had once and liked…these are products that since I’ve tried them they have become weekly necessitates when going to the grocery store…sorry wallet.

 Let’s get right into it! It’s Friday and my brain is officially turned off and set into weekend mode!



Lara Bar Bites

I know I hated on the new Lara Bars last week but these new Lara Bar Bites may be my new favorite thing EVER! So far I’ve tried the mint chocolate truffle, chocolate macaroon and double chocolate brownie and all 3 have been incredible. I have 2-3 bites after dinner and they completely satisfy my sweet craving without having to eat 957889345 calories worth of sugar and other processed junk. Since these are made with such clean ingredients they also would make a great on the go snack option- just be careful not to eat the entire bag.




Bitchin’ Sauce

I really don’t know how to introduce Bitchin’ Sauce other than saying it’s totally bitchin’. It’s a dip made with VERY clean ingredients (Water, Almonds, Expeller-Pressed Grapeseed Oil, Lemon Juice, Nutritional Yeast, Bragg Liquid Aminos (soy protein), Garlic, Spices, Sea Salt) that is kind of like a hummus. It comes in 6 different flavors and is SO good as a dip, dressing, on sandwiches, on tacos & burritos, mixed with tuna…the possibilities are really endless. My favorite flavors are the original, chipotle and pesto. Sorry East Coast readers as of now Bitchin Sauce is only available on the West Coast and most of the Central area of the US! To find Bitchin’ Sauce check out their website!




Mary’s Gone Crackers

I always saw these at the store but thought what crazy person would ever spend $5 on a box of crackers. Finally one day Mary’s crackers were on sale at Sprouts for 2/ $5…much more reasonable. I picked up the original and jalepeno flavors and you guys…I’m officially a cracker snob. These are made with only the best ingredients and have so much texture and flavor! Oh and wait…these crackers are gluten free, dairy free, organic, non-GMO, whole grain, kosher, wheat free and peanut/nut free. THANK GOD FOR HEALTHY CRACKERS THAT ACTUALLY TASTE GOOD! I honestly like Mary’s crackers plain but they’re also great with cheese or for dipping in some Bitchin’ sauce!




New Perfect Bars

Perfect Bar recently released 3 new flavors (coconut peanut butter, maple almond & blueberry cashew) and they’re AMAZING! Right now the only place you can find them is Whole Foods and I promise you guys it’s worth the trip! Since I am obsessed with everything coconut there’s no surprise here that the coconut peanut butter bar is my favorite followed closely by the maple almond. Healthy, nutritious, filling bars with no artificial ingredients…yes please! For more about Perfect Bars and why they’re my #1 bar for life check out the most I did on 5 popular nutrition bars



& what do you get with all 4 put together? …HEAVEN!


I’d love to hear from you all!


Did the holidays kind of just sneak up on you too? I blame the weather here in San Diego!

Have you tried any of these products before?

What’s a new product you’ve recently discovered and can’t live without?

    Ohhh maple almond sound DELISH. I’m obsessed with maple anything.

    • Reply Diana Becker November 18, 2016 at 1:49 pm

      It’s INSANE! It seriously almost tastes like cookie dough or if pancakes were turned into a bar.

      Very dangerous. Last night I melted some chocolate chips and drizzled it over some Lara Bar bites…HEAVEN!
