With SO many protein bars on the market today, how do you choose?
For me personally, I go for ones that aren’t loaded with a ton of ingredients and contain good quality protein. I look for bars under or around 200 calories, low in sugar (5 grams or so) and carbs (15 grams), and provide about 15 grams of protein.
I seriously avoid anything chocolate coated (preferring REAL dark chocolate) – same for bars containing sugar alcohols, sucralose, corn syrup, and any other sneaky fillers disguised as ‘healthy’.
Currently, my favourite is the new Simply Whey protein bar. It meets all of the above – plus delivers great crispy texture and coconut taste.
For a truly outstanding snack, I’ll slice a bar lengthwise in half, and spread organic coconut oil and peanut butter on the 2 halves. Seriously off the charts delicious! (I’ll have to take a photo and tweet sometime.)
