Protein bars are an easy and portable protein source. Pop one in your purse or carry-on and you are sure of something healthy and on plan to power your day. I always have a protein bar on me. You never know when your appointment will run late or plane will be delayed when traveling. I have checked-in to a hotel later than anticipated only to find my choices for dinner were a late night room service menu of overpriced deep fried foods or a vending machine filled with 400-calorie who knows how old pastries.
My secret protein stash has saved me many a time from making a not so healthy choice under stress. We know that we’re more likely to eat the wrong foods when we’re stressed and I just read a study that said that stress-induced changes to metabolism could lead to an 11-lb weight gain in an average year. Set yourself up for success and as those little Boy Scouts tell us "Be prepared."
I've got an exciting new protein bar option for you to check out! Celebrate Vitamins (an awesome company in our weight loss surgery community that gives back so much) has created a line of protein bars but these are not just any protein bar...
Celebrate ENS 2 in 1 Protein and Calcium Bar Highlights:
15 grams of Protein PLUS... 500 mg of Calcium Citrate and 333 IU of Vitamin D3 per bar. Very cool!
High protein snack (Between 130-140 calories) comes in 2 delicious flavors: Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch (peanut butter and chocolate, classic combo) or Caramel Chocolate Crunch (rich, sweet caramel flavor. Mmmm I want the world to smell like this bar... the aroma is divine.) These are soooo good.
A great new portable protein source that is ready to go on your next big adventure or small adventure navigating the break room of temptations each day at work.
