Think that nutrition bar is healthy? Think again! Our best (and worst) picks
Top three best picks
These bars keep their ingredient list to a minimum, as they use all whole foods like almonds and blueberries. Each KIND variety is different, but they are usually low in sugar and contain lots of nuts to load your body up with healthy fats. The best part about these bars is that you won’t have to worry about eating ingredients that you’ve never heard of.
Looking to go organic? Here’s your best option. Made with all organic ingredients, these bars are gluten-free, soy-free, and wheat-free. Not to mention, they are loaded with whey protein isolate, which is great for post-workout success. Grab one after you hit the gym to help repair those muscles.
Rise Bars come in all different formulas, so you’ll be able to give your body whatever fuel it needs for each specific time of the day. Made free of gluten, preservatives, GMOs and soy, Rise Bars are definitely on the rise to becoming one of the healthiest nutrition bars out there. Not to mention, they are naturally sweetened, so you won’t have to feel guilty about enjoying their super delish taste!
Top three worst picks
If you’re not an endurance athlete, Clif bars are not the snack for you. Packed with 42 grams of carbs and 22 grams of sugar, these bars are meant to power your body through a super long, super intense workout. Not to mention, the ingredient lists is full of stuff that will counteract your goal of staying fit and healthy.
Although these bars are low in calories, they are also low in fiber and protein, which will leave ya feeling hungry in no time after you eat one. Not to mention, they are flavored with mini candies, which contradicts the entire thought of a granola bar being healthy in the first place!
Quaker Oatmeal To Go
Oatmeal is supposed to be healthy, right? Well not when it comes to these on-the-go energy bars. Filled with high fructose corn syrup and brown sugar, the oats seem like a minimal ingredient in these babies. Bottom line – if you’re really cravin’ oatmeal, stick to the real stuff.
