Make your own protein bars…under 20mins., flat!
There are so many brands and types of protein bars to choose from. Who has time to read the ingredients, look at the sugar content or even check out actually how much protein is in a single bar. That’s where we come into the mix, we want to give you the straight goods on what to look for and even perhaps make your own. Protein bars essentially are pretty much classified as a supplement. A supplement simply is something that completes or enhances something else when added to it. We take supplements when we need to feed our body with something it either lacks, or enhance fitness levels. However, nowadays we tend to supplement for the need rather than for necessity!
The key things to look for in a nutritional protein bar:
- No preservatives
- Made using whole foods
- Adequate protein content that is right for you
- Low calories, cholesterol, fat and sugars
Protein & You.
Also don’t forget about knowing your consumption of protein vs. your body type. Check out our protein calculator and find out how much protein you should be consuming.
Aside from always purchasing and testing the waters on different bars, try and make your own. Now let’s look at the benefits to making your own bars:
- Your choice of flavour
- Your choice of ingredients, whole foods
- You know exactly whats inside
- Many more times healthier

- Takes only 15-20 mins to prepare (must be left to sit in freezer to harden, can make in bulk)
