Honest Foods Product Review

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 16, 2009

Good morning!

Happy Friday :)

Gosh, I feel like a piece of me is missing not getting up and working out first thing in the morning. It is quite hard to accept! : I just keep telling myself that soon this will be over and I will be sweating out the stress once again. For now, this website will be my therapy, right!?

I am feeling even better today! I haven’t taken pain killers this morning and I am feeling pretty darn good. Hopefully I will keep improving each day. :)

Up next for review, Honest Foods Cran Lemon Zest Whole Food Country Square:


It was soooooo delicious! I swear I am in love with these bars!! I don’t ever know how I am going to part with them. :D

It was lemon-y, but not too lemon-y. The perfect combo of flavours. Perfect for sprinkling over oatmeal


PS- I got a tip from the lovely Mariel over at Honest Foods. She said that in February Honest Foods will be reducing the sugar content of the bars!

The sugar is going down about 3 grams and the calories down about 20! Sweeeet. :) I am all for reducing the sugar as much as possible. Way to go Honest Foods!

There is also going to be new packaging! Keep your eyes peeled.


I had a soul-soothing and warming breakfast this morning. It is currently –16 degrees Celcius as I type this! Not fun.

It was a healthy way to start my busy workday ahead. I am a bit nervous going into work today with my crutches. I hate feeling like everyone is starring at me! lol. Hopefully I won’t crash or something horrible. We don’t have an elevator at work, so I plan on staying planted to my desk as much as possible. Sounds fun, right?

I didn’t catch the celcius at first and I was shocked, haha! Still too cold though!

Feel better soon!

Did Honest Foods happen to mention if they would ever be selling their products in Canada?

That bar looks great – I love lemon flavored things.

Be careful on your crutches! I hope your day goes by without any hiccups! :) TGIF!!!

So sorry about your injury – I, too, am out of commission in terms of working out for a few days, so I completely understand how it feels! You’ll be back and better than ever in no time, I’m sure.

Have a great Friday!

I totally feel your pain!!! It is -28 here in Ottawa! A very good day for oatmeal! Good Luck with your workday.

that’s a great quote!! i am sure it will apply to you. these challenges are what build our character.

i have definitely had days when i was planted at my desk because walking around or up/down stairs was too painful!


Lara January 16, 2009 at 11:01 am

Keep your head up, girlie! You’re doing great. I bet it’s tough not to be in your normal routine. At least it’s FRIDAY!! :D


girlrunningaround January 16, 2009 at 11:08 am

Strut your stuff, even if it is on crutches!

Another great quote!


VeggieGirl January 16, 2009 at 11:33 am

Don’t let the pain/not working out get to you, Angela!! Stay positive and strong.

Great review!!

Happy Friday and good luck today!! Smile :-)

Great to hear the cran/lemon flavour is good – that’s one of my favourite flavour combinations. If only I could actually get the bars here to try them!


Katie January 16, 2009 at 1:12 pm

Breakfast looks so yummy! Good luck on the crutches today… it’s pretty bummy at first but you’ll get used to it after a couple days. I was on them for about six weeks last falls… people are a whole lot nicer!

That’s great about reducing the sugar!! I love Honest Foods but they are a tad sweet. I totally understand the feeling when you can’t work out :( The other week I hurt my foot and couldn’t take my walks (gasp). It was kind of unnerving. I compensated by doing some extra yoga (which I think actually helped stretch and heal the foot!). Could you do some relaxing yoga or would it hurt?

Thanks for the Honest Foods bar review! It looks great! And that’s awesome that they will be reducing the sugar content!
