Protein bars: meal supplements, meal replacements or either/or?
As we already explained in our previous article: Bars can be diet lifesavers, but now you get more detailed information about how to use these little helpers.
If you have some weight to loose, we recommend replacing two lunches per week with a protein bar. In combination with a glass of still water, it gives you a great saturation feeling.
If you want to use a protein bar as a supplement we would recommend to eat them on days where you have strong workouts and need some extra energy and protein for muscle recovering. The best time for eating is directly after the workout or 40 minutes to an hour later if you need some time till you can eat after the strong exertion.
All of our bars are without sketchy ingredients and made with high-quality ingredients. Our new high protein bar is a mixture of cashews, chia seeds, coconut flakes, coconut milk, peanuts, oats a little bit maple syrup and high-quality protein powder. And for all the raw fans outside it is a no bake bar.
The raw nuts and chia seeds are excellent, clean plant-based protein sources. About 2 tablespoons chia seeds containing 4 grams of protein plus antioxidants and vitamins. They also supply a rich plant – based source of omega-3 fatty acids. A handful raw cashews provide roughly 5 g protein. For the topping of our new bar, we choose a mixture of coconut milk with raw cacao, which contains many antioxidants, calcium, iron and last but not least cacao is a great natural mood elevator and anti- depressant.
