Krush Bars – Natural Protein Bar Review

062515_krush01Krush Bars (previously known as Krave bars) have been popping up all over social media for a while now!  When I worked at a nutrition store, I even had a couple of people ask me about these – I wish our store had carried them then so I could’ve tried sooner and not feel so behind! Now that I work part time in a gym, I have people ask me for protein bar recommendations all of the time, so I felt it was time to give these a try! After eyeing the unique flavored bars for a while, I finally decided to give in and buy a variety pack so I could try all of the flavors side by side. I definitely don’t regret giving them a try!

Take a look at the nutrition label for my favorite Krush Bar flavor, Birthday Cake. Continue reading

[ Sunday Funday Favorites ]

Happy Sunday! Just finished up this post on my car ride between writing papers for school, so hopefully there aren’t too many car bump-instigated typos. 🙂

This was going to be posted as a “Friday Faves” post, but I had a horrible internet connection during my trip to North Carolina. So I present to you my “faves” from the past week.


My new Pyle Bluetooth headphones. Oh my gosh! I waited sooo long to get myself a pair of these and they make such a huge difference for my workouts! I put up with wired over-ear headphones for my cardio, but dangling wires+a spin bike was never a good idea.
These have been fantastic!!!! And they are waterproof, so no worries when I drip copious amounts of sweat everywhere.

Victory Bar Review – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

This morning I woke up and did a quick 12 minute lateral elliptical + 5 minute spin bike cardio session at my apartment gym, then grabbed a bite to eat before work.

After my quick workout this morning, I tried the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Victory Bar from OhYeah! that was new to me, but I’ve been wanting to try for a while! I tend to compare bars like these to Quest bars simply because they follow the approximately 20 grams of Protein, 20 grams of Fiber rule.
