Do you ever get lost in the health bar section at the grocery store? Do wonder if your power bar is a power fail?
For all you on-the-go, busy mamas, I’ve tapped into 5 wellness and fitness experts to find out what they look for in a good-quality, health bar. Happy snacking.
Tanya Zuckerbrot, MS, RD and founder of F-Factor
Her company recommends No Cow Bars to all their clients. This protein-packed bar is obviously #FFactoryApproved (google it – I’m OBSESSED and will share more about how F-Factor has changed my life and body for the better, in future posts!!) This bar has 20+ grams of dairy free protein, and only 1g of sugar. It’s also Dairy Free, Soy Free, Gluten Free, Vegan, Non-GMO.

My favorite on-the-go bars are Thunderbird Bars and RX Bars. I look for bars with real food ingredients (the fewer the better) and ideally are gluten and dairy free, for my own dietary restrictions. Her fav flavors include Cashew, Fig & Carrot from Thunderbird and we both agree that RX Bars’ Chocolate Sea Salt is a winner.
Jeannine Morris, Multimedia Beauty & Wellness Journalist
Being Vegan and Gluten Gree, I love Kind Bars. The dark chocolate, nuts and sea salt are my favorite flavors. Also, the Lara Bars Blueberry is delicious. I never know where I’ll be when I run into a situation where my dietary restrictions can’t be met, so it’s ideal to have healthy snacks like these on hand.

Rise bar is really simple. It’s a protein bar with 5 ingredients or less that’s non-GMO, gluten-free and soy-free. It doesn’t kill your appetite, but it cuts your craving pre and post workout.
