I received 3 chocolate bars fromย Attune Foods to try out.

About Attune Foods (from their website):

Attune probiotic wellness bars are a delicious way to enjoy the health benefits probiotics can provide. Each Attune wellness bar is packed with probiotics that help rebalance your digestive system, so your whole body can work better.

  • Attune probiotics are proven to survive in the digestive tract, where they can provide optimal health benefits.
  • The probiotics in Attune have been clinically tested to support a healthy digestive system and a strong immune system.*
  • Attune wellness bars also include prebiotics, which support healthy digestive function and work in harmony with probiotics.
  • Packed with 5 times the live active cultures in yogurt
  • Excellent source of calcium
  • Only 90 calories
  • All natural
  • Take it on the go!

I’m a big fan of chocolates, even without any additional benefits, I eat it everyday. But … if it comes with probiotics that helps the digestive tract? more reason to indulge ๐Ÿ˜€

Chocolate Crisp

Coco’s review: I love the addition of brown rice crisps! ๐Ÿ˜€ In term of taste, I don’t see any difference than standard milk chocolate. 4/5.

Mint Chocolate

Coco’s review: I like this one the most! It has a deep chocolate flavor with a hint of creamy mint, just magical combo.:) 5/5

Blueberries Vanilla

Coco’s review: This one is just okay since I don’t like white chocolate in general. 3/5.

checking out their website, I think I’d love to try coffee bean dark chocolate, dark chocolate and raspberry dark chocolate too.

Overall, I think for these are great products for people like me who needs a chocolate fix in a daily basis, their flavor is just as good as standard chocolates but with more health benefits! ๐Ÿ˜€

Yesterday was a stressful day in term of work with some stress eating ๐Ÿ˜ฆ (having cereals at home is dangerous). I’m not happy about it but not worry about it either. It happens from time to time and I won’t let it to add more stress to my life.

I had a morning pizza for breakfast ๐Ÿ˜€

a special tortilla (review to come)

Look my mini coach!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ She’s so adorable! ๐Ÿ˜€

YES! I’m a human machine!!! Yesterday was my longest run ever, which was unintentional because I kind of get lost :shock:. My original plan was to run 4 miles but I ended up doing 7.14 miles, 57 min, 8.03 min/mile. What happened? I wanted to try a new route, there is a lake near campus, but I got lost in the trail and when I found the exit, it was already 6 miles! :shock:. I won’t lie, it was pretty challenging the last mile back to home, but I’m glad I did it! ๐Ÿ˜€ I felt like a super woman!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Chinese theme continued! Assorted veggies stir-fry with olive leaves preserved in olive oil

  2. Brandi

    congrats on your run! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I LOVE mint + chocolate together!

  3. For years, I was a fan of sweet milk chocolate. As I have gotten older, my taste buds have come to crave dark chocolate.

  4. I adore chocolate with strawberries, and with caramel!
    Good job on the run! I once got lost on my bike ride, but I ended up doing the same mileage as usual :))
    It freaked me out a bit though.

  5. yea im with you, i like the chocolate mint better!

    congrats on ur run distance too ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxoxo

  6. The roasted pepper looks really good! i have never tried that before, seems like a yummy alternative to peppers:-D

  7. How can you run so fast?? Seriously, that’s amazing!!
    Dark chocolate is the best in my opinion ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Awesome run, you are SO fast Coco! I love dark chocolate!

  9. Congrats on the run! That’s awesome.

    The chocolate looks pretty good but I have had a seriously aversion to it every since getting pregnant.

    I don’t feel like a woman!

  10. That turned into a great run! The harder ones are the ones to be most proud of, right?

    Yummy looking chocolate. I don’t think I could pick just one kind…I love it all!!

  11. thanks for the review! the chocolate sounds good and like it does good things. i run on the treadmill, and my favorite chocolate is probably dark with hazelnuts!

  13. We use Google Earth for running routes!

  14. dark chocolate. pure and simple. Great run!

  15. Thanks for the info on the Attune bars–I see them at the store all the time, but I’ve never tried them. I don’t like white chocolate much either, so I would likely agree with your ratings!
