Many of us have been stuck inside now for what feels like an eternity. It’s very easy to turn to boredom snacking and in those times turn to a bag of chips or a candy bar. Eating empty calories like that can be a killer when you’re trying to maintain some level of fitness.
So what do you do? One option we have at ThirdLeaf NW is our healthy home box. It’s stuffed full of not only healthy snacks but also fresh fruits. Check out the rest of our options; including complete meals, like salads and wraps.
With that in mind, we take a look at an article from Women’s Health which outlines some of the best bars in the game. We’ve chosen to outline some of what is available from TLNW.
Per serving: 200 calories, 15 g fat (3 g sat fat), 140 mg sodium, 16 g carbohydrates, 5 g sugar, 7 g fiber, 6 g protein
Kind bars use a good amount of raw nuts and dark chocolates but stays low in added sugars. This allows them to be sweet without being too sugary. They are also high in fiber which keeps you feeling full when you snack. That’s the point, right?
Bob’s Red Mill
Per serving: 210 calories, 9 g fat (1.5 g sat fat), 100 mg sodium, 28 g carbohydrates, 10 g sugar, 3 g fiber, 7 g protein
This one is a favorite at ThirdLeaf NW. We swear, it tastes just like a peanut butter & jelly sandwich! Bob’s is small but they pack on the energy with good flavor and whole grains.
Per serving: 200 calories, 8 g fat (2.5 g sat fat), 150 mg sodium, 26 g carbohydrates, 8 g sugar, 3 g fiber, 8 g protein
This is probably the sweetest and sugariest of the things outlined in the article. The Luna bar though has a good amount of protein and is more well-suited for a meal replacement bar, rather than a snack here or there.
