Same in the evening, and I need some energy boosting. I found that ZonePerfect® Nutritional Bars are perfect snack. I am a smoothie person who likes to make my own smoothie blends. Yes in the beginning I tried various fruit and veggie combo. Now days, I am in the experimental mood and always try to add some new ingredients to make smoothie. I tried flax seeds, chia seeds and hemp seeds so next in my list are antioxidant rich Goji berry. I decided to try a banana smoothie with dried Goji berry .Goji berries has slight bitter taste, that will compensate if you take a ZonePerfect® Nutritional Bars along with it then it is easy treat with the protein you need.
Goji berries have amazing antioxidant properties, and it is a fruit of Chinese Lycium barbarum plant, which is used in Chinese medicine, and is supposed to increase general health. They have also been referred to Chinese wolfberries and Tibetan goji. It helps to protect from UV radiation, improves eye health and also helps to prevent cancer because of rich antioxidant abilities. Read more from here.
Goji berries can be eaten raw or you can soak them in hot water before eating. You can add goji berries to trail mixes, smoothies or as a garnish on cereals, salads or yogurts. Basically, goji berries can be baked, cooked, steamed, and processed in any way after they are washed. I prefer adding in a smoothie.
If you are making this smoothie then it will be good idea to have ZonePerfect® Nutritional Bars on the side. The snack that makes you feels good about yourself. You can grab them from your local Walmart store. There are few varieties of ZonePerfect® Nutritional Bars Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Fudge Graham, and Cinnamon Roll. Choose according to your taste buds.
As I love cinnamon rolls and chocolate peanut butter, I bought that two, both have high quality taste and also are devoid of any High Fructose Corn syrup which is more important to me.
So why wait, grab a blender and add banana, goji berries and almond milk and make delicious smoothie and grab your favorite ZonePerfect® Nutritional Bars, it is rewarding after a stressful day.
