health coach picks: best protein bars
Best protein bars!
If you’re busy and always on-the-go, protein bars are a super convenient snack to have on hand! Not all are created equally, so I highly suggest doing your research (and your own personal taste tasting) so see which you like best! Here are some of my favorites:
Kind bars – one of my all time favorites! I’ve been a fan of these bars for years. While they don’t have as much protein as some of the other bars, they have clean ingredients, are low in sugar and have plenty of healthy fats which will keep you satiated. They also have tons of delicious flavor options.
22 Days Plant Power Protein Bars – a new-to-me bar that I fell in love with! Super clean ingredients, vegan, non-gmo and 15g of plant protein
Square Organics bars – organic, gluten free, non-gmo and around 12g of plant based protein. These bars also have a really good balance protein, carbs and healthy fats. You can get 20% off these bars when you use discount code “OHWELLNESS” at SquareOrganics.com!
Oatmega bars – I’ve posted about these bars before because I like that not only are they non-gmo and gluten free, but also have 14g of quality protein from grass-fed whey and have added Omega-3’s which have tons of health benefits! All of their flavors are yummy and these bars have a nice crispy texture.
Zing bars – a gluten free, whey-based protein bar that packs 13g of protein! Obviously, the chocolate peanut butter flavor is my favorite
Quest bars – although these bars have some “questionable” ingredients, they pack 20g of protein, tons of fiber and are a great option for when you’re craving something sweet!
Power Crunch bars – These bars taste like a delicious wafer cookie They are a bit higher in fats, but still have around 10g of protein. While these bars are not as filling as the others due to the lighter texture, they are another great option for when a sweet tooth craving hits!
