Sorry if this has been asked before, I'm new here.
I recently made the switch from lacto/ovo-vegetarian to vegan (I'm in the transitional period). For years, I've relied heavily on protein bars for quick easy snacks that give me a boost throughout the day. I'm usually busy with either school or work so I always need something I don't have to prepare and can just throw in my bag that will give me a boost and be healthy. I used to eat kashi, cliff, a think thin bars all the time because they were tasty, had good ingredients and lots of protein. I also like to eat them before and after workouts. Thus, these bars have been probably the single hardest think to relinguish for me! I just simply havent had time to find a good subsitute and they are always in my house for my parents and sister so I guiltily grab them on the way to work.
Does anyone know of a good vegan protein bar, or similarly easyand nutritious snack? Thanks!
Some of the Luna or Cliff bars are vegan and all Larabars are raw & vegan, but they do have a lot of sugar. For someone in transition, go for it. Whatever you need to do what you can to help you transition. But once you're comfortably in the vegan you might want to avoid ones with a lot of sugar.
Have you ever tried a "Green Monster" smoothie? They are my absolute favorite for a quick fix and energy. I know you said you don't want something you have to prepare so I won't go too much into it. You may want to get your protein bars for when you're out and about but when you're at home, for breakfast before school or post-workout, you may want to just try one. The energy and protein you can pack in these is insane!
Oskri has delicious quinoa bars sweetened with date syrup and sesame seeds.Only downside is they crumble and break into pieces really easily,if they aren't that way on the shelf already.I brought one with me on the plane this month and it was great,full of protein,not too heavy like other bars.
I found a great one at my local Co-op called Nu GO Organic...they come in a couple different flavors but my favorite is the Double Dark Chocolate, yum! I don't eat them very often, but they are great to have on hand for those times you are on the go...or want something sweet!
Don't give up those protein bars, Alyssa. You're right. They are tasty and great for you with lots of protein and good ingredients.
