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 😜
When you’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 🙅🏼♀️
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 😉 there are other “clean bars” on the market, but if they don’t taste good? I’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. 👍🏻
