The holidays are a busy time for families and that’s definitely ringing true for my family this year. The girls are busy with school functions, as well as enjoying special activities to celebrate Christmas. All the running definitely takes a toll on this Mama, which is why I was so happy to discover these new organic energy bars from Clif Bar. If you look in our girls’ school snack bowl, you’ll always find a different assortment of CLIF ZBars, but these are just for me. The CLIF Nut Butter Filled Bar is an organic energy bar filled with delicious, creamy nut butter. I chose to receive a box of the peanut butter filled energy bars, but they’re also available in both hazelnut and almond butter.
Each CLIF Nut Butter Filled Energy Bar is certified USDA organic and non-GMO. If you’re following a more organic, green lifestyle like my family does, you probably already try to avoid GMOs, but do you really know what they are and why you should avoid them?
GMOs are organisms—including plants and vegetables—that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals. That’s not Mother Nature at work. Those are lab experiments creating combinations of genes that can’t occur in nature or be bred via traditional plant breeding.
Studies show that GMO crops lead to the increased use of toxic chemicals, herbicides and pesticides in conventional farming, elevating the risk of toxin exposure to the general public and especially farming communities.* Want to learn more about Non GMO?
Since this topic can sometimes get confusing, Kate Geagan, an award-winning dietitian and “America’s Green Nutritionist,”, is sharing educational tips on how to shop Non GMO while helping to lead a national conversation which champions cleaner food choices to support a thriving body and planet.
Making good food choices has always been important for me to do for my girls and I know that health for my family starts with me, which is why I choose them for myself too. Because of their size and packaging, these delicious, nutrient dense organic energy bars have been the perfect go-to when we’ve been on-the-go lately.
I absolutely love visiting DreamMore but I have to say, being here at Christmastime is absolutely magical. The spirit of this area and the people who live and work here is truly a blessing. #comevisit #hosted #Dollywood #dreammore #Dreammoreresort #dollyparton #mypeoplefund #DollywoodInsiders #Christmas #smokymountains #prayforgatlinburg #gatlingburg #pigeonforge #tennessee
I made sure to pack a few in our bags as we headed to the Smoky Mountains this weekend. I knew my husband and I would especially need them during our day at Dollywood because our girls like to walk the entire park [sometimes more than once] to make sure they don’t miss a thing!

Low glycemic and loaded with plant-based protein, 7 grams to be exact, it’s the perfect nutritious organic energy bar to keep your energy levels where you need them to be.
