Press-It Thursday: Healthy Fruit and Oat Crumble Bars | Feeding Your Beauty

Today’s first “Press-it” Thursday article is brought to you by Larice from Feeding Your Beauty. Larice, 36 years “young”, is married, and mother of a rambunctious preschool age girl. Larice has degrees in Health Sciences and Therapeutic Recreation. She says that earning both degrees gave her “a better understanding of wellness as a multi-faceted, complex, and harmonious interaction of mind, body, and spirit.”  To read more about Larice, visit her ABOUT page.

Larice’s HEALTHY FRUIT AND OAT CRUMBLES are the perfect addition to my continued discussion of healthy carbohydrates and sugar. The ingredients for these bars include: oat flour (ground yourself), raw sunflower seeds, coconut sugar and maple syrup, all wonderful ingredients.

I particularly like the addition of the sunflower seeds, which are very healthy. Take a look at the nutrients daily value in one serving (courtesy of World’s Healthiest Foods)

About Tamara Hoerner (1261 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
