Sunrise Green Smoothie + ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars are the perfect pair to give an energizing power punch to fuel any morning routine! Together they are a healthy breakfast full of protein, vitamins and minerals to give you the energy you need to “do it all” during your day!
It is hard to believe, but 2016 has come to a close… We have embarked on a brand new year and all the possibilities that come with it!! For me, this new year is especially exciting because our lil girl will be born in this new year 🙂 She is due to make her grand entrance in late February, so that puts me in my third trimester of pregnancy.
I am quickly learning that while the third trimester is thrilling because I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel – MY PRECIOUS BABY GIRL – I will still have to power through the exhaustion and other uncomfortable aspects of the last few weeks of pregnancy before I get to hold her in my arms. It was perfect timing, that I was also asked recently to give ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars a try!!
ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars offer unmatched great taste and indulgent flavors without the guilt! They have even been satisfying my pregnancy sweet tooth 🙂 I love that I can feel good about enjoying them because each full-size bar has between 10 – 15 grams of protein, 170 – 210 calories and a unique blend of 17-19 vitamins and minerals to keep me and baby girl satisfied and fueled throughout our day! ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars contain an ideal balance of carbohydrates, protein and fat and are available in 14 flavors so everyone will find varieties that they love!!
I have been keeping ZonePerfect Nutrition Bars in my bag for when I need a yummy and healthy snack during the day. But my favorite way to enjoy them is paired with my Sunrise Green Smoothie as a wholesome breakfast duo to kick-start my day the healthy way!!
My Sunrise Green Smoothie combines the nutritional powerhouse kale with sweet gala apples, fresh ripe strawberries, a fresh squeezed orange and the anti-inflammatory effects of fresh ginger!
It tastes like a sunrise in a glass!! Refreshing, energizing and with just the right amount of sweetness, this sunrise green smoothie will quickly become your favorite too 🙂 Once you pair it with a ZonePerfect Bar, you have the nutrition to help you win the day – all day long!!
ZonePerfect Bars can be purchased at your local Target, Amazon.com and most large grocery retailers. (Link back to offer of either Amazon.com or Target TBD once given by Ahalogy)
