Healthiest/Unhealthiest Nutrition Bars

The other day while eating a Luna Bar for breakfast, I sat & wondered to myself  is this even healthy for me? That’s when I decided to do a little research & look into the ingredients of the most popular nutrition bar. Below is my list of the 3 healthiest nutrition bars and the 3 least healthy bars out on the market. I found out that I wasn’t making the healthiest choice and the nutrition bar I was choosing for energy was actually filled with vitamins that would slow me down as a result.

Healthiest Bars

Unhealthy

2. Clif Bars are intended for endurance athletes who need to climb a mountain or run a mini-marathon. Not for someone who is just going to yoga or spin class for an hour. Brown rice syrup is the main ingredient found in the Cliff bar and the company uses soy protein, which is known for causing digestive stress, inflammation, and thyroid problems.

3. This bar is low in protein and fiber and has a high number of calories. This is not intended for a snack it’s a meal replacement unfortunately this doesn’t keep you full as long as you would think.
