Smarty Pants Good Gummies [Giveaway]

I’ve always been a bit fussy when it comes to vitamins. I steered away from the gummy kinds because most of the time they are loaded with high fructose corn syrup which I can’t have (nor do I wish to have). But then Smarty Pants gave me the opportunity to try their Women’s Complete Gummies, and my tune has changed!

Sweet Potato Bites Gummy Vitamins

The Women’s Complete Gummy not only is a complete multivitamin, but also has Omega 3 DHA and EPA fish oil, K2 for bone health and Folate for detox support. These gummies are also FREE of all artificial flavors and sweeteners, and contain no corn, soy or gluten, making them ideal for me and my food allergies. Throw in the fact that they are free of GMOs and taste great, and you’ve got a winner in my book.

Since I’ve been doing a lot more lifting and a lot less running lately, I’ve found these gummies to be the perfect complement to my breakfast post-workout. They give me a nice little boost for the rest of the day and I love knowing that I’m doing something good for my body.

Health Warrior Chia Bars

I was recently sent a box of Health Warrior Chia Bars to try out.  With each bar containing 1000mg of omega 3s, less than 5 grams of sugar and 110 calories or less, I was definitely intrigued.

health warrior chia barsHealth Warrior was founded by Dan Gluck and Nick Morris; two Division 1 athletes who learned about the amazing power of chia seeds after reading Christopher McDougall’s book Born to Run.  Born to Run follows the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico who run up to 100 miles with no shoes and sustained by chia seeds.  After learning about the benefits of chia, the duo created “warrior” bars using the mighty seed.

I’m pretty selective when it comes to these kind of snack bars, but I absolutely loved the Health Warrior Chia Bars.  The bars were flavorful without being too sweet, and I liked that they were lower in fat than some of the other bars on the market.

All of the bars are gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free.  As someone who suffers from a soy allergy, I was happy to see that the Health Warrior Chia Bars were free of any soy protein (they use a plant-based protein instead).

Big thanks to Health Warrior for sending me these bars to try!  I’ll definitely be ordering more of these soon.  If you want to check out these bars for yourself, be sure to visit your local Whole Foods or Sprouts Market.
