When you think of health food most people think, loss of flavor. Here are a few healthy before/after workout, or a perfect mid-day snack. These protein bars are worth the bite.
First up is Kind Bars. Bean’s absolute favorite snack bar. Has a good amount of protein but these bars are geared to having a healthy, energy providing snack. Comes in many nuts, fruits, and flavors. They keep producing new flavors that are all natural, and delicious. A Must Try! Look for them at Target, Kroger, and the VitaminShoppe.
Next up is Bear Naked bars. These break up like a rice krispie treat. And oh so yummy. Of course we had to try the Chocolate PB one. It isn’t to dry and the sweetness makes it seem like a guilty treat. Have a glass of milk and it is almost better than a chocolate chip cookie.
Finally for the bars, we tried Designer Whey bars. These are probably the most dry out of all we sampled. But the taste was great. High amount of protein this bar is great before or post workout.
If you’re looking for an actual protein shake. Bean Styled highly recommends EAS Complete Protein Nutrition Shake Mix and EAS Mypolex. You can buy them in four packs. But the 2 lb tubs are not crazy expensive like some other brands. It dissolves and mixes better than any protein shake out there. Of course, the best part is that is taste great. Again a chocolate lover we tried that flavor and was not disappointed. An a major bonus is that this shake mix is also geared towards bone health, digestive, energy and metabolism, and immune support. Absolute all around A+ Protein Mix. An here’s a Tip.

Better Oats Steel Cut Oatmeal with Flax Seed is Delicious and we area having it just about every morning. The Steel Oat is the whole unrefined oat. So no processing makes it whole grain and healthy. Unlike oatmeal they process the grain to remove the shell which you lose much nutrition.

The best tasting store-bought honey you can find on shelves. You will never get bored, continuous different flavors for your palette. The oatmeal with Flax and Chia seeds will keep you full all day with energy.
