Of course in a perfect world you eat whole nutritious food and avoid packaged snacks... I preach the same to my clients, however let's be realistic sometimes convenience wins. Also, its just nice to feel like you are having a treat sometimes right?! I personally allow myself one protein bar per day and on days that I'm out and about and just unable to eat my regular meals I will allow even more. These are my 4 go to favorite protein bars. I incorporate them into my routine regularly and have had no issues with any of these spiking blood sugar , keeping me out of ketosis or negatively effecting my progress.
1. Built Bar
My absolute favorite go-to protein bar is from Built Bar . They have a soft chewy filling and are like unlike any other protein bar I have ever tried. They have tons of flavors and I have yet to find one that I do not LOVE. They are the closest thing to a actual candy bar that I have tried. The Macros are excellent. At only 110 calories and 15g of protein you can fit them into just about anyones macros. Use my code for a discount. CODE: MRSCEOJ Click Here to purchase
2. Stoka Bar
Stoka bars are so delicious and I love how versatile they are. You can either eat them as a bar or even better yet crumble them and use it as a granola type topping on pudding or greek yogurt. My Favorite flavors are birthday cake and vanilla almond. They have a nutty texture super clean ingredients and great macros for the ketogenic diet. Use my code for a discount. Code: MRSCEOJ
3. Quest Bars
Quest bars are like ole faithful for me. I have been eating them for 7 years. In fact they got me thru my Bikini Competitor prep days. They are so delicious and even better if you warm them up for 12 secs in a microwave. My favorite flavor is Birthday cake, but in all honesty there are dozens of flavors that I love. If you have not tried quest then you must be living under a rock. They are the most readily available bars for purchase in most retail locations and are always good when in a pinch when I am out and about.
