Do I have a new find for you.
When The Simply Bar told me they were the perfect fit for me, they couldn’t have been more right. …Seriously. These protein bars got it right when they concocted a great on-the-go bar with more protein for less fat and calories.
They must have caught wind of my busy-bee life. And let me tell ya, between a full-time communications job, a part-time coaching job, marathon training, blogging, mommy-ing a puppy, painting wine glasses, and attempting to keep up with a social life, I don’t exactly have a ton of time on my hands. But you guys know that already.
Anyway, when I dug into the sampler box The Simply Bar sent me, I was preeettty excited about my future with a protein-filled snack that wouldn’t pack in extra unnecessary calories and fat. ‘Cause it’s not like I don’t enough of that from the birthday brownies and cookie at work.
MARATHON TRAINING MAKES ME SO HUNGRY. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, and I won’t stop saying it until it’s over.
The Simply Bar comes is 100% vegan, kosher, and free of gluten and dairy and sugar alcohol. Simply Bars are suitable for those with Celiac’s, Crohn’s and IBS.
16 grams of protein and only 160 calories. And the thing fills you up. It was perfect for my pre-run snack right after work. It satiated me, but it was light enough to run directly after chomping it. Check out the stats compared to other protein bars:
The Simply Bar comes in peanut butter chocolate (oh yes), caramel peanut (mah fave.. so good), cinnamon pecan (strange aftertaste for me), lemon coconut, cocoa coffee (YUM), cinnamon, and cocoa raspberry (also delicious). As far as taste goes, picture a dense rice crispie treat void of marshmallow and covered in the aforementioned flavors.
Bottom line? The Simply Bar is awesome. It fills you up with little calories, it’s nice and light, and it tastes delicious.*
And while we’re on the subject, people at The Simply Bar, I’m munching on my last one as I type this post.
