Protein Bars For Grab and Go Days
I believe in making our lives easier. Sometimes we just don’t have the time to cook and prepare meals. Things come up like sick kids, dogs, business meetings, and a million other things. Being prepared is KEY to keeping you on your road of health and wellness.
Being hungry and having our blood sugar drop down low is going to signal a quick “food fix”. You know what I am talking about: a candy bar, drive through window, or even a few bags of chips. You are so hungry you eat whatever you can get your hands on.
I want you guys to make sure you are eating throughout the day and not getting to that point. A great thing I suggest is being prepared with a high quality, healthy protein bars to keep you satisfied.
I don’t want you living on protein bars. They are there as a quick snack or when you just have to have something quickly. These are what I call “Grab and Go”. They are portion sized, prepackaged, and ready for you when you need them.
Eat Better Protein Bars
Most protein bars out there are filled with so many things we can’t even pronounce and should not be eating. Soy, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors, and who knows what else. Not to mention loads of addicting SUGAR.
Below are some of my favorite bars that I always have on hand, and here’s a recipe for homemade healthy protein bars I make myself. They are all low in sugar, made from natural ingredients, and nutrient dense.

Raw Crunch Bar
I love, love, love the Raw Crunch Bar. They are handmade, uncooked, unprocessed energy bars. They are super low in sugar, made with nuts, seeds, and some superfoods.
Raw Crunch Bars are dehydrated rather than cooked in order to maintain their original concentrated nutrients, enzymes, and potent antioxidants. The Raw Crunch Bar comes in four flavors: Cranberry, Blueberry, Goji Berry, and Chocolate (my favorite).
