Post work-out yumminess!!

I am not a protein bar kinda gal. I have yet to find a bar that isn't chalky or dry or just plain artificial tasting. Hubby and I are hittin' up the gym each night to get in some cardio - go resolutions, go!! After last night's session, we popped into the grocery store to get a couple things we needed, and browsed through the supplements aisle. I was griping to Tim that I haven't found any yummy protein bars to munch on, and the flavors that I found to even remotely sound appetizing, are all loaded with carbs (which I am trying to avoid). After a mini lesson from my man about the importance of some carbs in my diet and yada yada yada, I scoped the KIND Fruit and Nut bar. Almonds and coconut - that was really all the wrapper needed to say to get me hooked. There aren't a lot of grams of protein (only 4), and the carbs are up at 19 grams with 10 grams of sugar and 210 calories per bar (wait - should these be considered a health bar??), BUT they are SO YUMMY!! Reminded me of an Almond Joy without the chocolate, which is perfect being I don't like chocolate in solid form. I ate the whole bar, which cost $1.49 on sale, and my hunger was satisfied, although I did drink 24 ounces of water with it as well. Probably not the best choice, but I definitely did a little dance while eating it!
What about you? Do you have a favorite protein bar you love to snack on? Please share!!

After I rocked out to my Pussycat Dolls workout last night, I rewarded myself with chips, cheese dip and cheerios. Is that normal? HAHA!!
