I am on the road all day long for my job. I don't have an office or a desk, much less a refrigerator or microwave. So when I pack a lunch, it has to be something that can survive sitting in the car all morning, sometimes in the heat, sometimes in the cold, and occasionally in a cooler. The less effort required, the better. Oh, and did I mention I'm working on losing weight, so it has to be healthy?
This is where Quaker Soft Baked Bar comes in handy. I can use it as a breakfast snack, a dessert for my lunch, or a pick-me-up in the afternoon. Because they have only 140 calories and 5g fiber/6g protein, they are exactly the kind of wholesome food I'm looking for! They even are a source of 5 B-vitamins!
If I don't want to carry one with me in the car, they make a great warm morning treat. Throw them in the microwave for a few seconds and eat them warm. Love banana bread? The warmed up Banana Nut Bread soft bar tastes just like it! I'm a huge cinnamon fan, so I can see the Cinnamon Pecan Bread easily becoming my favorite.
These are great for the for the whole family. It's a great way to get some wholesome goodness into your kids, and an easy way to trick your husband into eating something better for him than donuts or candy bars! And coming from Quaker, you know it's a brand name you can stand behind.
