1. Bonk breaker bites
i. These are number one because they get straight to the point. Pre or
post workout, these are enough to give you some fuel. Protein bars
should not be eaten as meal replacements on a regular basis, which is
why this bar is number one. I have eaten this post workout when I
know I will not have time to eat within the hour. I like to replace
carbohydrates post workout to prevent my body from catabolizing
hard earned muscle.
2. Lenny and Larry’s Snickerdoodle
i. KEEP IN MIND THERE ARE TWO SERVINGS PER COOKIE. These are
number two because they are soooooo onolicious, delicious. Kill it.
Also, sometimes I eat these when I have a 5 hour gap in between
meals. In that case I will eat the whole cookie. I have eaten more than
a few of these cookies. These cookies are VEGAN!
3. Quest Bar Cookies and Cream
i. Hopefully you noticed how much higher the protein content is in this
bar than the others. That is good. Carbohydrates are arguably the
most important macro to replace post workout, but protein is
important too. Also, because it is high in protein it is a good snack to
take on the go. The protein will help to prevent a big crash from the
4. Power Crunch Bars Mint
i. Drastically different composition. Honestly, I got hooked on these
after seeing Buff Bunny eat them over and over again. The reason I eat
these is to curb my sweet tooth. Fat is satiating, and the protein
content is substantial, so it is still a better alternative than junk food,
and it is equally onolicious.
5. Fit Crunch
i. Nope! Those are not typos. Yes, 380/27c/30p/16f. For that reason I
have only eaten one in my life, but ohhhh man it was onolicious. Not
all Fit Crunch bars are this high in macronutrients. For example the
cookies and cream is almost half of everything in this bar. I highly
recommend trying this bar and deciding for yourself if it can fit into
When you start your fitness journey you often do not know what products to purchase, and
large companies sponsor just about everything. You end up seeing the same products over
and over, and you may just try the first one and stick with it. When I first entered this
industry a girl walked me through everything. She told me exactly what supplements,
brands, proteins and everything to buy. I stuck with it even though I hated all of it. Two
years later I realize what a waste of time that all was. First of all, I try to give local and small
companies a chance whenever possible. I end up using whatever works best for me though,
regardless of whether it is a small company or a large company. These above bars made the
cut for me.
