The You Bar

Food is life, it becomes part of us. Literally.  I make the majority of my food at home, with quality ingredients, and tend to eat in restaurants where I know the owner,  I believe that food created with intention is better for us. 

Sometimes I resort to ‘food’ bars while on the road.  Not too often, cause most of them seem to have just too much sugar for me.  I feel better when I can pack something more substantial, simple, and real. 

I’ve just hooked up with this great company that makes custom nutritional bars!    there’s a great web interface, you choose your own tasty ingredients from a menu. They even print your chosen name on the wrappers!   and, I’ve arranged a 5% discount for us.

My new favorite thing:

You Bar, at You bar, you build your own nutritional bar

I’m really excited to send ‘make your own bar’ gift certificates to my friends and family, and make bars with their names on them.

I ‘made’ myself a nice vegan bar with no added sugar, and called it by my nickname.

Make your own bar, perhaps name it after your favorite Yoga pose, and! Yes, I called the chef.

Anthony over at YouBar hooked us up. Remember to type in  YogaJohn for a coupon code and get 5% off your order!

Check out, and have a blast!  let me know what you end up making, we could trade and have a taste-test.

how about a SuryaNamaskarBar?

Om Shanti, see you in class.


P.S.  Just A few spots still open in the special Restorative Yoga class next Sunday, and check out our Invoking Shiva  class the following Saturday of May 2’nd.  This will be the last workshop this season.  see the events page for more info!

Namaste. I’ve been practicing and teaching Peace, Yoga, and Mindful living for many years. What comes out in class is from decades of going inwards. I love sharing what is rising in my practice and my day to day life of noticing more about this incredible world we live in. Peace -j

    Hey Deb, what did you call your custom bar? or is it a secret recipe? Glad to share.

    What a positively smokin’ idea. Thanx for turning me onto this John. As a personal trainer and fitness buff, I find the single most important variable in creating the kind of health and body you want is the diet component. You can work out like a fiend, but if you don’t feed your body properly, you’re practically wasting your time. If, however, you just decide to eat really clean, you can make great strides without doing anything else. The best combo is to eat well and commit to an exercise plan. I will absolutely create a custom bar and share it’s recipe with this website. Peace.

    Just created my first bar, called the Clintus Maximus. To wit:
    Whey Protein, Almond Butter, Cashew Butter, YourBar Base, Organic Coconut, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Oat Bran, Fiber Infusion, Cinnamon, Spirulina.
    275 Calories, 17g fat, 19g carbs, 14g protein, 3g fiber.
    I’ll let you know how they taste. I’m looking forward to this.
