Again, thank you all for sharing. I did try some Think thin bars and they are delicious. I will go to my health food store to look for Purefit. Looks like other people found this thread useful. I am so glad I found SparkPeople. It is so nice to be able to check in with people who are in similar situations.

Oh! Yes! Purefit. I found them when I wa out of town at a health food store, They are not at my local health food store. I have bought them online. They are cheaper that way anyhow, and if you order so many, you get more for free. www.purefit.com/
My favorite are Pure Fit bars...they are not only GF but also dairy free and vegan!!! They have 18 grams of protein, 23 grams of carbs and 7 grams of fat for 220 calories!!! My favorite flavor is the chocolate brownie followed by the Peanut Butter!!!
Thank you all for the suggestions. I will go buy at least one of each of the suggestions and see which I like best. I am so glad I found this group. Until now if I wanted GF recipes or suggestions, they were not necessarily the healthy type. Now I get GF and weight-loss friendly. Awesome. Good luck to you all.
Odwalla makes protein bars and they are gluten free, but they do use oatmeal. I can eat them but only one a day. I get them at the Commissary but you can go on line and order from them. Here is a link to their page. www.odwalla.com/index.jsp
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I'm allergic to peanut butter, so stick to the honey almond. Raw Revolution bars are pretty tasty, but not high in protein. I tend to grab a protein drink and bring it with me sometimes. They work better for me. But the Honey Stingers are considered a sports bar, so are better balanced than some

I concur with the Think Thin bars--several flavors, all low in sugar, high in protein and not too scary on the calorie front. I also like Kind bars--I keep them handy for those days that I have dance lessons--I eat one on the way to the studio so I'm not faint with hunger afterward. Only thing is--they have nuts, so if you're allergic, steer clear, obviously.
I like Lara bars too-especially the peanut butter "cookie" one. Is that the one? I think so. Anyway-they are basically nuts and dates--nothing on the ingredient list that is unpronounceable--I love that.

I am starting out on this new adventure trying to lose about 31lbs. I am trying to prepare for those situations when I do not have time, I am not home, or just don't know what to eat. Can anyone suggest some diet-friendly Meal replacement bars or protein shake? Thank you in advance for any suggestions. Also, if you can give me an idea where to purchase items suggested.
