while the autumnal equinox isn’t for 11 more days, as soon as september hits –especially once regular season professional football is gracing our tv sets three times a week, i’m ready to bust out the pumpkin-flavored things and don scarves and boots in honor of my favorite season of the year.
since it’s still a little warm to wear cozy knits, i’m embracing fall by surrounding myself with pumpkin spice and everything nice -like lattes from my favorite coffee shop and these delicious (and nutritious!) pumpkin spice-flavored rxbars which officially launched on september 12th!
after discovering the chicago-based whole food protein bars a few months back, they have become a staple in our household. even my cheetos-loving husband has taking a liking to them, opting for a mango pineapple or chocolate sea salt bar for a late night snack.
in honor of their launch, the team at rxbar sent me a box of the pumpkin spice flavor to sample. with simple ingredients like egg whites, almonds, cashews, dates, pumpkin, cinnamon, and cloves, it’s right up my alley -naturally gluten-free, dairy free, with an excellent source of natural protein (12 grams!). not to mention the fact that it tastes just like fall –like football tailgates and flannel button-downs, crisp mornings and oversized scarves.
