With so many energy bars out in the market, how do you pick one? Whether you are going on a long hike, taking an exercise class or just looking for a quick snack, energy bars are super convenient. Not all energy bars are created equally. Many are loaded with sugar, hydrogenated oils and other less desirable ingredients such as soy protein isolate.
There are certain things to look for when picking energy bars. They should be under 200 calories, anything more is considered a meal. Choose ones made from wholesome ingredients such as nuts, dried fruits, seeds or grains. Some protein content is good since protein curbs hunger. Anything above 5g of protein is suffcient. As for sugar content, look for ones that are 10g or less and are naturally sweetened energy bars. Some bars use sugar alcohols to keep the sugar content low.
