Luna Bars

What do you eat when you’re on the run and don’t want to eat frankenfoods from a drive-thru or convenience store?

Luna bars! (Or Clif bars, if the thought of eating a whole nutrition bar made for women freaks you out). sent me some of the Chocolate Dipped Coconut flavor Luna bars (made by Clif) to try out. From the label:

Luna The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women is proud to make bars that are entirely natural and 70% organic. Ingredients like real toasted coconut, organic cocoa, organic almonds, organic oats, and organic flaxmeal are fortified with 24 vitamins and minerals, like antioxidants and folate. Only 190 calories, this sweet treat is no sacrifice.

Benefits of Clif’s Luna The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women:

  • Entirely natural
  • 70% organic ingredients
  • 190 calories
  • 3 grams fiber
  • 9 grams protein

Another plus: Luna bars contain no hydrogenated oils and no genetically engineered ingredients (no GMO’s).

But, are they any good? That’s a tall tasting order for someone that isn’t crazy about coconuts. I’m happy to report that the coconut flavor is natural and mild and very well balanced with the cocoa and almond butter flavors.

I’ve been traveling quite a bit these past couple weeks, and these Luna bars have been a lifesaver. Try them out, and visit for more sports and fitness nutrition and supplements. You can also find them on Facebook. Enjoy!
