From the grocery store to the gas station, there isn't a shortage of protein bars to choose from when you're short on time, but long on hunger. Protein bars are great for when you're in a pinch and need calories or you know you're going to be in a place (or meeting) where you won't have access to food when you want it.
With all of the options available, how do you choose a healthy bar that isn't just a glorified and more expensive candy bar?
Here's a quick guide of what to look for so that you choose the best bar for you. I have even listed some of my favorites.
Full disclosure: I prefer real food at all times, so my list isn't extensive. But these are brands that I have tried and actually like the taste as well as the nutrition. Experiment and find a bar that works for you!
Best bars that I've tried
Quest (more so their natural line. The regular line is sweetened with sucralose so don’t consume them heavily though I looove the taste!)
Tracy Anderson (it almost pains me to type it, but they’re tasty!)
Jimmy's Protein Bar
Lenny & Larry Cookie
What are your favorite go to bars?
