Recommendation: Two Moms in the Raw - Blueberry Granola
Review: When traveling for business, it's the little things that make me happy. Like a hotel room with a beautiful old-fashioned lobby, or a cab ride with a driver who is a local expert, or finding new gluten free treats in an airport store or eatery!
Recently, I tried a blueberry granola bar from Two Moms in the Raw. It was hearty and chewy and hit the spot for hungry me. But I was a little bummed that I couldn't really taste any blueberry. In fact, it lacked flavor overall.
The good news? It was dairy free, wheat free, and gluten free. Handmade from 100% raw and 100% organic. Even if my taste buds weren't over-joyed, my aging body was happy.

Recommendation: Larabar Uber Bananas Foster
Review: I've tried many Larabar varieties and am not the biggest fan. They all taste very similar and don't give you that rewarding eating experience... due to the very dense, pressed bar composition. I was skeptical about trying another, but am always in search of GF food that tastes good. So I tried it. And I'm glad I did.
This "uber" bar has a nut bar texture and the banana nut bread flavor that hits the spot. Definitely a good snack bar to keep in the pantry for grab and go goodness.
