Should you eat it? Kashi TLC Honey Almond Flax
You bet! This is quite possibly the most nutritionally balanced granola bar I have found thus far. It is pretty filling for only 140 calories and quite tasty too!
Not only are the carbohydrate, protein and fat proportions in balance, it is much lower in sugar than your typical granola bar. It also supplies you with a good dose of omega 3 fatty acids, which help to lower your triglyceride levels and increase your HDL cholesterol levels (that’s the good cholesterol). Did I mention it is also loaded with fiber? See for yourself:

I don’t know about you, but I would rather get a box of these for Valentine’s Day instead of a heart-shaped box of disappointing, overpriced chocolates, half of which are fruit-filled! I guess Forrest Gump was right…”life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get”. At least with a box of Kashi TLC Honey Almond Flax Granola Bars, you know you are getting some good stuff!
