Healthy Favorite: Homemade Granola Bar

Looking for a new "bar" for a to-go snack? How about homemade granola bars? I treated my husband to a great cookbook, (though I think I have tried more recipes than he has...) Gourmet Nutrition by John Berardi from Precision Nutrition. Just baked a batch of the granola bars! They are great to cut up and put in snack bags to freeze for a good healthy snack to-go. I also enjoy the peanut butter crunch bars...also great to freeze for grab and go healthy, protein filled snack option.
Gourmet Nutrition: The Cookbook for the Fit Food LoverThe book can be used simply as a cookbook but also describes how to create a meal plan from its recipes including labeling each as anytime meals or post workout meals as well as giving good pairing options, referencing other recipes to create a more complete meal. Meal templates are also included to get you started.
Precision Nutrition's website has a great blog worth checking out for those really interested in the science of nutrition and health. Their website also offers free online/email courses that are full of great information, downloadable tools and the occasional free recipes from their cookbooks!

A clean and healthy nutrition plan is essential to living a fit and healthy lifestyle and achieving your transformation goals. Experiment with new recipes and food to find healthier substitutes you enjoy, you need to make preparing and eating healthy meals enjoyable!
Your long term success depends upon you recreating your attitude about eating to make a lifestyle change and stop "dieting!" Good luck and enjoy!
