Reach for Real Ingredients
Reach for a nutrition bar with ingredients you can pronounce. Chances are, if you don’t recognize an ingredient, your body won’t either. Scan the ingredients panel for organic, wholesome foods you’d find in your kitchen.
Why organic? Organic ingredients offer peace of mind in regards to how they’re grown, handled and processed. There’s no artificial preservatives, colors, synthetics or additives to affect your body. Real ingredients also mean real flavor—forget chemicals with funky taste. It’s also a good idea to look for natural sweeteners, high quality oils and the absence of GMOs. Artificial ingredients can do more harm than good, and no body wants that.
Get Picky About Protein
If there’s one rule in any diet that’s an absolute must, it’s getting enough protein. But not just any protein will do. Search for a nutrition bar made with high quality protein that fits your lifestyle. Here’s three we love:
Feel Full with Fiber
Nutrition bars with fiber can help you manage your hunger and control your appetite. Some sources of fiber take longer to chew which sends signals of satiety to the brain—helping to prevent overeating. Dietary fiber helps maintain regular bowel movements and can make you feel full for longer periods of time.
Don’t Freak Out About Fat
Not all fats are bad. For example, fats derived from Medium Chain Triglycerides are good for you! Medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs for short, are a group of fatty acids with slightly lower calorie content than other fats. But what really sets them apart from other types of fat is how they’re used! MCTs are easy to digest by the body. They’re burned as energy to fuel muscles and the brain, but aren’t stored by the body like other fats.
