Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial kick-off of summer. Grills come out of hibernation, sunscreen gets lathered on, and for some, trips to the beach become an everyday occurrence.
This Memorial Day weekend also marks the 50th birthday of my very own dad, which means family time enjoying cake in the warm weather. And in just a couple of weeks, we’ll get to celebrate all the fabulous dads in our family.
If you’re not quite sure what to get your dad for Father’s Day this year, you still have plenty of time. And although it may be tempting to get him something tasty, I highly urge you to look for something that he won’t only enjoy, but will be beneficial to his health as well. Afterall, good health is sort of like the gift that keeps on giving.
A few of my favorite health-promoting gift ideas include:
A round of golf.
A day of relaxation.
Healthy snacks for on the go travels.
Not sure which nutritious snack your dad might like the most? Perhaps you will find the Balance Bar BARE Father’s Day Gift Set intriguing. These gift sets are available for a limited time and include 15 BARE Balance bars in three delicious flavors – Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter, Sweet & Salty Chocolate Almond; and Blueberry Acai, an exclusive Balance Bar water bottle with built-in compartment perfect for storing a BARE bar, and a playful “BARE Hug” Father’s Day card. Really, its everything you need to say “Have a Happy and Healthy Father’s Day.”
We received a few of the bars to try ourselves earlier this week and they were quite tasty. The guy behind the plate was especially fond of the Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter BARE Balance bar. It wasn’t too sweet or too salty – it was just right. Plus, all the bars were filling and kept our hunger in check between meals. This is important, especially if you decide to send your dad out on a hike or out for a round of golf this Father’s Day.
What else will you and your dad love about these bars? BARE Balance bars are sweetened with all natural organic agave and brown rice syrup. They contain 15 grams of protein, up to 5 grams of fiber and up to 7 grams of whole grains. They have 200 calories, 19 vitamins and minerals, and are an excellent source of antioxidants. Each 1.76 oz. single serve BARE bar adheres to Balance Bar’s proven healthy 40/30/30 nutritional model (40% of calories come from healthy carbohydrates, 30% from quality protein, and 30% from dietary fat) to help stabilize blood sugar levels, satisfy hunger and provide lasting energy.
