Tickets Winner and Good Greens

It's time to pick a winner for the Near West Theatre benefit tickets.....drum roll please. selected: Amanda from Clue Into Cleveland! Congrats, and I look forward to seeing you there. Email me your mailing address and phone number, and I'll get you taken care of. Thank you to everyone that entered! It's not too late to purchase tickets to enjoy an evening of the arts, and delicious food from Spice Bar + Kitchen, to support a very worthy organization in our community.

Now, on to the post for the day. I have been a bad blogger since my surgery (understandable). Over a month ago, Good Greens Bars (out of Shaker Heights) contacted me about reviewing their product for the blog. Normally, I wouldn't review a product such as theirs. But the fact that they are local, and contain 100% of our daily fruits and vegetables requirements, intrigued me.

The company generously sent me a box of complimentary bars, including their Wildberry, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Coconut flavors.Over the next two weeks, "R" and I sampled each flavor. They were tasty, slightly soft and chewy, and certainly didn't make us realize that we were eating all of these great things for us. They tasted almost like candy bars, but were helping us get 12 grams of non-GMO soy protein, 5 grams of fiber, 40 antioxidants, and 3 probiotics. The Chocolate Coconut was my favorite- reminding me of a flat Mounds bar, and the Wildberry was "R's" pick.

Their secret is the Z52 Super Powder, which give the bars 52 superfoods and all of its nutrients. The bars are also low glycemic, vegan and gluten-free. They use all natural ingredients, proven to boost your energy, lower cholesterol, improve digestion, strengthen your immunity, and help increase brain power. All this packed into a yummy bar? Sign me up.

You can find them at Heinen's, Marc's, Mustard Seed Market, Dave's, Anderson's Market, GNC and Krieger's. I suggest checking them out. They made a great grab-and-go snack.

Disclosure: I received the above pictured bars to sample and review in exchange for this post. The opinions stated are 100% my own. Thank you to Good Greens for the opportunity to share their product.

The Good Greens was sampling their bars at Ingenuity last fall. I have to say, I'm not much of a fan of nutrition bars (I usually put them and energy drinks in the same questionable category), but they were fairly tasty.

I'm so excited for the Near West benefit and this is the first time I've won a giveaway - woo-hoo!

I agree with Maureen -- I skeptically tried the Good Green Bars at IngenuityFest and really liked them. Even Scott, who dislikes anything with the word 'health' or 'nutrition' in the description, actually liked them.
