When you live in Cornwall, life is all about long walks and outdoor activities.
Especially when you wake up on a Saturday morning to this face wanting to go for a walk:
The weather has been perfect recently (good old September!), so we decided to head down to Falmouth for a walk around Pendennis Castle. It’s a dog friendly coastal path, so P-dawg got to meet some other furry friends on the way.
It was about 11am and (considering the time of year) it was getting pretty hot out in the sun! We got a bit lost around the castle, but eventually found our way back to the car.
A huge helicopter decided to fly overhead, extremely low! I was worried Pepper would freak out, but apparently this dog is not phased by anything…
Back at the car and exhausted from the heat, we were in need of a snack. I (being always super-prepared) brought along a couple of Nakd bars to replenish our energy!
Natural Balance Foods sent me a box full of delicious Nakd bars to try out, and I must say I’ve been seriously enjoying them on our walks! Not only do I like the somewhat cheeky name, I also like their priorities.
These tasty little bars are made with all natural ingredients (all the good stuff like fruit and nuts); that means no wheat, dairy or added sugars.
I’m all for healthy foods and energy boosting snacks that aren’t full of rubbish, but I can rarely be bothered to take the time to prepare and pack my own for a spontaneous walk. It’s also hard to find pre-made stuff that actually tastes good.
Obviously it’s handy that you can just grab your Nakd bars and go, but I wasn’t expecting there to be such a good variety of fun flavours in the pack. It’s not just your generic-fruit-and-nut bar; here are some of the flavours I received:
- Cocoa mint
- Rhubarb custard
- Berry delight
- Cocoa delight
- Cocoa orange
- Cashew cookie
- Pecan pie
- Cafe mocha
- Bakewell tart
How awesome is that selection? Now that I’ve pretty much devoured my whole box, I can safely say my favourites are the Gingerbread, Berry delight and Cashew Cookie ones – yum!
Natural Balance Foods have some tips on their website about how to make the most of energy foods, and you can find more information about their brand values and products there too.
*Yes, I got sent these for free to review, but I have honestly seriously enjoyed them and will definitely be buying my own box soon! A mixed box of 18 bars costs £14.99 (working out at 83p per bar), which I’d say is definitely worth it for the quality & fun flavours you get.
