Probar’s Latest Launches

Meals on-the-go

Probar, known for their food bars, just launched four new products and we’re kind of addicted - though we’re guilty of adding these to our meals versus using them as meal replacements, so beware…they are addictingly good! See below for the new products they have in store!

Two new flavors of the brand’s BASE Protein Bars (previously known as CORE) were launched. BASE is a new gluten-free, non-GMO, vegan protein bar, packs 20g of protein, a chia and flax seed blend, 100% plant-based ingredients. CORE comes in a dairy-free chocolate coating which is awesome since we’ve noticed that dairy has been causing some breakouts recently (beware!).  New flavors include Frosted Peanut Butter (white chocolate coated with a peanut butter crunch on the inside) and Chocolate SuperGreens (chocolate laced with the added benefit of an organic super greens blend: barley grass, wheat grass, alfalfa).
These meal bars weigh in at a solid three ounces of fruits, nuts and seeds with enough nutrition to make a fresh, tasty, satisfying meal replacement…though again they’re so good we sometimes ate two! High in fiber, 9+ grams of protein, Omega 3 and 6, certified chemical-free (non-GMO & organic), these bars [...]

Nespresso Launches Inissia

New, simple, small, and only $99

The newest Nespresso model, the Inissia, may be its best yet - simple, small, and affordable at only $99 it can fit in the tiniest of kitchens or even inside a cubicle!

We’re huge fans of Nespresso because of how fast the machines work - only a few seconds till we get our caffeine fix and there’s no clean-up, but now a ton of new research has shown that drinking coffee can have major benefits for our health. One study showed that drinking coffee before a workout increases the amount of calories burned, while coffee has also been linked to better circulation, better memory, and more muscle fuel among other things.

All the more reason to buy one of these new Nespresso machines for both [...]

Mary’s Gone Crackers

The brand introduces Gluten Free Everything Pretzels

Everything bagels are a Sunday favorite - with cream cheese and lox, of course - so imagine our delight when we got word that Mary’s Gone Crackers had launched a new product, Everything Pretzels ($4.99). And yes we replaced our Sunday bagels with these the other day and wrapped and tipped them in our lox/cream cheese goodness and it was pure heaven - and considerable more healthful.

The uniquely light, crunchy, and incredibly flavorful pretzels are a healthier alternative to other high-sodium pretzels, since they’re loaded with whole grains including brown rice, quinoa, amaranth and millet, as well as tasty and nutritious seeds including flax, sesame and chia. The new Everything Pretzels get extra crunch from poppy seeds and also have onion, garlic, sea salt and herbs to really mimic the all-encompassing flavors of those bagels we all know and love. The pretzels are also organic, gluten free, non-GMO, soy free and vegan and are naturally packed with omega-3s, fiber and protein.

Sure sometimes it’s nice to have something doughy, but a little healthy crunch is [...]

Exfoliating Scrubs: Sugar Vs. Salt

Relax your body and mind

What is the difference between Salt and Sugar Scrubs for face & body? When should you use each? What are the benefits? These are some of the questions we asked Dr. Marina Peredo, associate clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and founder of Spatique Medical Spa. Dr. Peredo shares her expert insight on the subject below.

  • The difference between salt and sugar scrubs is the size of the granules. The smaller the granules, the gentler they are on the skin. Generally, sugar particles are smaller, making them less abrasive on the skin.
  • Sugar scrubs are best used for people with sensitive skin or any skin conditions including rosacea, acne and eczema.
  • Salt scrubs are much coarser in texture and are best used on thick, rough patches of skin like callused elbows, knees and feet.
  • Salt scrubs can also be beneficial for harsh acne breakouts as they help in absorbing oil and unclogging pores.
  • Sugar scrubs are preferable to use on the face as opposed to salt scrubs. The skin on our [...]
