Perfect Protein Bars.

I thought I would post about a few of my favorite types of protein bars.  Since my schedule is hectic and I am usually on the go, I always have some type of protein bar in my bag or in my desk drawer at school. 

My first choice is the Luna Protein bar.  It comes in a variety of flavors that are yummy for the tummy, but it is also nutritious for the body.

Both the Chocolate Peanut Butter and the Cookie Dough Luna Protein Bars are my favorite flavors with each having 12 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber per bar.  They are high in calcium, vitamin D, iron and folic acid.  Plus, they are gluten free!  The caloric range is between 170 and 190 calories per serving and each has between 6 and 8 grams of fat per bar.  

The other type I eat on a daily basis is the thinkThin protein bar.  I tend to lean towards the creamy chocolate peanut butter version, but these bars also come in a variety of flavors.  This high protein snack is a little larger in size compared to the Luna Bar, and it has 230 calories per serving and 8 grams of fat.  Containing 20 grams of protein and 0 grams sugar, it is gluten free as well.  Kim Kardashian has been “spotted” eating thinkThin bars as a part of her high protein diet according to the link below. 

I love the bar concept because it is a quick and easy way to get an energy boost anytime, anywhere.  Both of these bars are available at my local Wegman's in the organic/sports bar isle. 

What are your favorite bar types and flavors?  Do you find one to be more nutritious than the others? I would love to hear your feedback!

Have a great Wednesday!!

  1. Happy hump day to you as well, although to me, they're all just days when you get to work'.

    Clif bars are pretty tasty, esp. the chocolate pb kind, and even a simple power bar, fruit smoothie is pretty tasty and good on the go.
