Vegan Noodle asked which are my favorite Luna Bars and I'm not feeling like a long post, so I'm going to tell you about my weekday morning routine. I don't know about you, but I don't like to eat first thing in the morning. I also don't like to eat a big breakfast during the week (I save those for special occasions). I wake up at 6:30 to get ready for work and am out the door by 7:20 for what is generally a commute of an hour and fifteen minutes or longer. On my morning commute, I drink an entire bottle of water (either 16 or 20 oz. depending on what I have on hand). When I get to work, I refill my water bottle* and make myself a mug of green tea, usually around 9 a.m. After I nurse my green tea and finally finish it, it's on to the day's Luna Bar.
I'm sure you won't be surprised when I tell you that, every Monday, I bring in a week's worth of Luna Bars and that I eat them in order of my favorite to my least favorite (although I obviously only buy flavors I like). Yes, I'm that regimented. Here's the order:
Monday: Caramel Nut Brownie (lick-the-extra-caramel-off-the-wrapper good)
Tuesday: Peanut Butter Cookie (just like the Girl Scout PB sandwich cookies)
Wednesday: Chocolate Peppermint Stick (like Girl Scout Thin Mints, but better)
Thursday: Chocolate Raspberry (soft with a strong raspberry flavor)
Friday: Cookies 'n Cream Delight (sweet & more crumbly than the other flavors)
Runner up: Chocolate Pecan Pie (sweet and chocolatey)
I haven't tried the new Berry Almond flavor yet. The only flavor I actually dislike is Lemon Zest. It's too sweet and has an odd flavor. I'll eat it if I have no other option, but I'd rather not.
What if I have a day or two off one week, you might ask? I still go in flavor order from top to bottom and I'll save the extra Cookies 'n Cream Delight for a pre-yoga meal or for a weekend breakfast.
I buy my Luna Bars at Whole Foods because they cost 99 cents each and, if you buy a whole case of a flavor, you get 10% off the case. Meaning, that I buy a case each of the aforementioned flavors at a time and don't have to replenish my supply for about 15 weeks.
The rest of the morning, I just drink water until lunch time. I'm not a snacker. :)
*I'm a strong believer in drinking at least 64 oz. of water per day, which is about 4 bottles.
