While a good protein bar can occasionally be a lifesaver when you need to eat on the go, energy bars are often no more than vitamin enriched candy bars. Be sure to read the labels, and choose a product that has protein for staying power.

Love these energy bars! They have 15 g of protein/bar. Chocolate Caramel = 170 cals & 4.5 g of fat. Carmel Peanut = 180 cals & 6 g of fat. Chocolate Crunchy Peanut Butter = 190 cals & 7 g of fat. They are a great alternative to a chocolate bar & with the protein, stave off hunger. Yum!
I will have one for a snack or if I'm really rushed for time at lunch, have one for lunch & a piece of fruit. It holds me to the next time I can sit down for a meal. 224
I love chocolate, and chocolate candy bars from the vending machine at work were always my downfall. Then I found a new mid-morning snack, chocolate protein bars (my favorite is Special K protein meal bar). Protein helps satisfy my appetite and these bars don't trigger the "sugar monster" that lies within!
I sit behind the computer all day, in order to keep myself from snacking without thought, I limit my snacks to 2. I pack them with my lunch and eat them at specific times in order to keep it under control and not consume too many empty calories. When the snacks are gone, they're gone!
Good snacks = protein bars, fruit, turkey jerky, and nuts
