Are you looking for some healthy, wonderful, on the go items to give to your Mom for this Mother's Day? Maybe even a great gift basket put together by you? Well look no further! I had the pleasure of trying some of these items, they are so good I wanted to share them with you!

A Promax Fit 'n Crisp bar is like having a healthier rice crispy treat! I was able to try the vanilla marshmallow and I loved it! These vegetarian bars are filled with 13 grams of protein, no artificial sweeteners, colors, high fructose corn syrup, gelatin, maltitol or gluten. These are actually very tasty, I am going to pick some more up for my kids too!
As a mom on the go I don't always have the time to eat a healthy meal so the new Evolve protein shakes are great for me. I honestly liked the tastes of these, they were just right. Since Evolve is lactose free I can drink it without the dreaded stomach pains afterwards. In one small container this gluten free shake has 12 grams of protein, fiber and 20 minerals and vitamins! You can get these in 5 great flavors: Vanilla Creme, Chocolate, Strawberry, Mixed Berry and Cafe Latte. So yummy!

When I spotted these goodies by Pure my first thought was "Oh these are for the kids, not me." Then I had a taste and was blown away, especially by the Fruit Sandwich in the Pineapple and Passionfruit, it has so much flavor that it made my mouth water! I have to be honest I wasn't too into the Ancient Grains, but my 13 year old tasted the Chocolate Chunk Nut and she loves it. So here are the nutrition details for each product. The Fruit Sandwiches are made with organic, GMO-free fruits and there are no artificial flavors, sweeteners or preservatives. This is how the Ancient Grains bars website page describes them: Combining healthy grains like quinoa, amaranth, flax and hemp, Pure Ancient Grain bars deliver a complete source of protein, fiber and antioxidants with a lower sugar and sodium count than most energy bars.
One last item I didn't get to try because it wasn't included in my Mother's Day box of goodies, but I wanted to share about it anyways. The SpaRitual Infinitely Loving Body Lotion is made with 83% certified organic ingredients. The lotion helps to hydrate and protect your skin. Putting this lovely lotion in your gift basket for your Mom will make that basket that much better!
