As a dietitian, I am always looking at the product labels of new items at the grocery store and learning whether these foods would help my clients reach their goals. While in the ideal world, everyone would have time to cook and eat whole foods, I have quickly learned that it isn’t doable for all people. In the busyness of life, sometimes a bar or shake is necessary to curb our hunger and prevent us from going through the drive-thru at a fast food restaurant and ordering a large order of fries or milkshake. But, as I skim the aisles of the grocery store and look at product labels for their calories, fat, protein, sugar, etc., I am usually disappointed when I see the ingredient list. The saying “don’t buy it if you can’t pronounce the ingredient or find it at the grocery store” usually applies. There are definitely products out there that are exceptions to this saying and one of the products that I have recently found that is a pretty close exception is the RxBar. For example, the apple cinnamon bar contains 7 ingredients: dates, egg whites, almonds, apples, cinnamon, and natural apple flavor. It has 200 calories and 12 g protein, which makes it a great mini meal or larger snack. These bars definitely have a higher price point than most, likely due to the ingredient list, so I recommend that you have them for those “just in case” times.
Because these bars are hard to find and on the expensive side, I want to share my love of these bars with one of you! Enter the giveaway below and we will randomly choose a winner next week!
I am not being compensated for this review. I am only sharing it because I appreciate the product.
