A healthy snack option for busy summer days #BareAtWalmart giveaway #spon

Can you believe it’s the end of July already? Yikes! It is crazy hot and humid here in the south and back to school is looming large, so I really need to keep a healthy snack option for busy summer days on hand while I run errands with my girls. Thankfully, I’ve discovered the benefits of keeping a high protein snack bar in my purse at all times, so I was thrilled to work with Balance bare Bars and Walmart for today’s post.

My thanks to Balance bare Bars and Walmart for sponsoring today’s conversation. I did receive a gift card to thank me for my time, however all opinions and love of healthy snacks are my own. 

My WAHM Plan: Balance bare bars

Finding the Balance bare Bars at Walmart was easy.  They are right over by the vitamin section, which I walk past often on most shopping trips.

About Balance Bare Bars:

Balance Bars delicious bare bars, a nutritious, wholesome snack made with real nuts & fruit. Each bar is only 160 calories, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free and vegetarian and comes in tasty flavors like Sea Salt Caramel and Mixed Berry Nut which is also dairy-free and vegan. 

I picked up several Sea Salt Caramel and Mixed berry nut Balance bare bars and couldn’t wait to try them.  While I really liked the Sea Salt Caramel bars, the Mixed berry nut was my favorite! This bar is full of yummy good fruit and nuts with just the right amount of sweetness. I ate this bar on the go the next day and was able to finish all my errands happy, not hangry! 

Doesn’t it look good?

My WAHM Plan: healthy snack option Balance Bare Bars

Walmart is offering an exclusive Balance Bare bar value pack! The 4+1 value pack includes an extra bar and a dollar off coupon inside each box as well making these bars and affordable healthy snack option for you and your family!


As I power through my busy summer days, having a healthy snack on hand is just one of the ways I stay active. I also make sure we have lots of water with us on every single errand we take. I freeze water bottles at night, then fill them and put in a small cooler to go with us.

I like taking my walks, jogs in the morning hours before it gets really hot! There are less people and it is lots of fun to me.

We swim almost daily, and love to work in our container garden! We did our first one last year and had so much fun...we expanded it this year! The dogs also love to go for walks early in the morning before it gets too hot!

Hi Rose-Marie,
I need to start walking earlier in the morning. I tend to put it off if I schedule for an evening walk.

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Julie,

A running/jogger I am not, but a nice long walk? I'm in, if I can walk early before the heat starts.

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Ashley,

Me too! You can really work up a sweat out there digging in the dirt.

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Heather,

A cool dip in a pool sounds perfect right now!

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Ouzel,

I simply do not know what people did before air-conditioning, especially in the sultry south!

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Stephen,

I hear ya! Florida must be swamp like by now.

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Carrie,

My husband and I are looking into getting an elliptical because of this heat!

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Liberty,

I bet you can log some serious miles walking at the hospital. :)

Linda A. Kinsman said...

Hi Laura JJ,

I love hearing how well your container garden is doing for you! It's very rewarding. My neighbors take their doggies on walks in the morning and I love seeing them go by.

Walking is a favorite here too. Thanks for stopping by and entering.
