A client asked me what was my favorite protein bar and after little hesitation, I replied ‘the Simply Bar”. I usually have a few stashed in my car. Let me explain my personal position on bars/meal replacement bars, I prefer to snack on fresh and whole foods. However, there are times when I leave the house in a rush and my supply of nuts in my purse is bare. I would much rather reach for a nutritious alternative when I am famished. I don’t like being hungry. I have a very efficient metabolism, and when my blood sugar falls I get irritable (ask my husband) and slightly dizzy. Not only that, but if I wait too long to eat, then I tend to over eat at my next meal. So, I like to leave the house prepared and armed with healthy goodies.
Simply Bars are:
- gluten and casein free
- high in protein (16 grams)
- low in fat and sugar (160 calories)
- high in fiber
What’s more, is they have great flavors, and now they created several peanut free bars.
Another plus for me, is that this is a Canadian company conceived by a woman. How fantastic!!
