Simply Whey Bar

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.WHEYC-2

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.)

Find the Simply Whey bars at all leading health and grocery stores, including Bulk Barn – which conveniently enough – I now buy my organic coconut oil and organic peanut butter at too :).

High Protein Bagels

While my marathon ‘carb-loading’ days may be over, I’ll never give up my love for bread, and these bagels definitely get my 2 thumbs-up! I found them at the CHFA Expo in October, and hope to see them on more store shelves soon.

What makes them so good?

  • Lower in calories  (260) versus other bagels (400+!)
  • Contain whey protein, providing 28 grams of protein per bagel
  • Lower in carbs (25g) versus others (45g+)
  • Taste amazing! Especially toasted with hemp, peanut or almond butter.

If bagels aren’t your thing, you can also find high protein bread by the same company.  Both taste equally good! If you want to get creative, try making french toast, pizza or toasty egg sandwiches.
