Our Favorite CSE Approved Bars!

 

We love these protein bars for snacking on the go or when traveling! I always keep one in my car or purse because emergency snacks are a MUST ๐Ÿ˜œ

When youโ€™re looking at bars, always look for a clean ingredients list and good macros. Here are some of our best tips to see if your protein bar passes the test:

  • Look for bars with no artificial sweeteners (sucralose). This can cause bloating, stomach aches or gas ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

  • Look for bars that are moderate in calories. 200-300 calories is a good range. 

  • Look for bars that have a good amount of protein! Our rule of thumb is to make sure the protein content is higher than the fat content. 

  • Certified non-GMO and certified organic are always a bonus! 

  • They also have to taste good ๐Ÿ˜‰ there are other โ€œclean barsโ€ on the market, but if they donโ€™t taste good? Iโ€™M OUT! 

*Erythritol and xylitol are great healthy sugar substitutes, but can also cause some stomach discomfort, bloating and gas in some people. If you introduce a new bar into your diet, pay attention to how your body feels so that you can find a bar that digests well in your body. Everyone is different. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
