Life is busy – it’s the reality that we seem to live in no matter your age! Maybe you are juggling work deadlines, travel, keeping up with parenthood or are a caregiver for an elderly parent – regardless of YOUR story – HANGRYness is going to catch up at some point in our day! Snack bars are a go to for so many of us who need a quick solution to quiet the belly growling and irritability. The snack bars are placed in arms reach in the cafeteria check out line, the grocery store, Target…you get my point!
How often though do people check the nutrition for a snack bar before they check the price? Snack bars can be loaded with hidden sugars. I’m beyond thrilled for a new bar to hit the market – a nutrition bar called BEACHBARs!
People who want to boost their protein intake will find that BEACHBARs are 10 grams of protein. They are a good source of protein and 4 grams of fiber without the extra sugar. There is 5-6 grams of sugar per 150 calorie BEACHBAR. The BEACHBARs fits into my existing meal plans and nutrition that I share in my health and wellness community and works well as a daily compliment to our superfoods. The equivalent is 1/2 YELLOW, 1/2 RED, and 1 SPOON per BEACHBAR.
Seven out of ten adults snack 2 times per day and we all know that it doesn’t always work for our health and wellness. It’s extremely important that we choose our food wisely whether well planned out or grab and go.
Let’s talk flavor – the BEACHBARS come in 2 flavors – Chocolate Cherry Almond and Peanut Butter Chocolate. Which one would you choose!? This is a difficult decision as they both are delicious!
Both flavors are gluten-free, have 0 grams of trans fats, and no artificial flavors, or preservatives. If you want the indulgence of a bar packed with nut pieces, nut butters, real chocolate chips, and 10 grams of protein with just 150 calories, your choice is the BEACHBAR friend!
For my friends looking for an option that is Low-Glycemic, the BEACHBARs are designed to be Low-Glycemic. It has less sugar than protein. Low-Glycemic foods release their carbohydrates slowly, causing a lower blood glucose response. This helps avoid a large spike in blood sugar and the “crash”, or dip, in blood glucose that often follows and may cause you to feel sluggish. This should also assist in helping you feel fuller longer.
