Gluten Free Lunch In The Backseat: GoGo Squeeze and TrueBar

Several weeks ago, I received a product sample of GoGo Squeeze to review here on Candy Hearts.  Knowing our road trip was coming up, I put them away to save for the ride.  I first heard about GoGo Squeeze from Alexis, so we had actually already tried them -- and loved them.

Apple Cinnamon is our family's favorite, but a variety of other flavors are available, including: AppleStrawberry, ApplePeach, AppleBanana, and AppleApple (plain). The ingredients are simple (apples and cinnamon.  Easy Peasy) and free of refined sugar or artificial ingredients. Each little pouch packs between 12 and 15 grams of carbohydrate, depending on the flavor.

The cap twists off -- no spoons or spills to worry about, and the pouches can be recycled through a partnership with Terracycle.

Throw them in a purse, a diabetes bag, a lunch box, or just stash some on the shelf for a healthy snack whenever the craving hits.  GoGo Squeeze gets 2 thumbs up from the Rose Family!



I also received some TrueBars from Bakery On Main.  We tried some of their granola and granola bars earlier this year, so I had complete confidence that TrueBars wouldn't disappoint. With names like Coconut Cashew, Apricot Almond Chai, and Hazelnut Chocolate Cherry, how could they?

These bars really don't have anything to hide!  Each bar comes in around 20 to 25 carbs, depending on the flavor, and all the ingredients are easy to read.  They're very easy to transport, making them an ideal snack on the run.

I ate one of these before several of my BodyBack workouts and they worked out great!  BONUS: After the workouts, I wasn't ravenous either.  Sugar also enjoyed them for an easy meal-on-the-go.  Her favorite flavor was the Fruit and Nut while I couldn't decide, because I loved them all.

A nutritious granola bar to pair with a perfectly portioned pouch of applesauce.  

This is a gluten-free match made in Heaven, indeed!

SUPREME AWESOMENESS!
