PHP's Top 3 Protein Bar Recommendations

In our fast paced lifestyles it's a MUST to keep quick, healthy food options on hand at all times. Protein bars are a great option but not all are created equal!

Most of the protein bars on the market are high in added sugars and contain chemicals and additives that are toxic to our body. Some just don't taste that good. There are SO MANY different protein bars to choose from so to help you cut through all of the choices and information we took the time to rank our top 3. Here they are:

1) Bulletproof Collagen Protein Bars- these protein bars are the lowest in sugar and carbohydrates that we have been able to find which is one of the biggest reasons they earn our top spot. They contain only 2 grams of sugar per bar! They also contain 11-13 grams of protein per bar from grass-fed collagen along with healthy fats like coconut oil that provide you with sustainable energy while avoidng the sugar crashes you can get from high sugar bars.

Collagen protein is derived from the bones, skins, and cartilage of animals. By consuming collagen, you are getting the amino acids your body needs to properly build collagen, which is a fibrous protein that provides the strength and structure to our body. It is this protein that keeps our skin firm, hair and nails strong, and our bones and joints healthy. Our bodies naturally produce collagen but production decreases as we age which can cause brittle bones and wrinkled skin, so consuming collagen regularly in our diet is a great way to prevent this.

There are no artifical flavors or additives in these bars so their DELICIOUS flavors come from real food. Some of their flavors are chocolate chip cookie dough, fudge brownie, vanilla shortbread, and apple pie. YUM! You can check them out here: Bulletproof Protein Bars

2) Gomacro Bars- These protein bars are 100% plant based and their ingredients are sourced from organic and non-GMO certified growers who follow sustainable farming practices. Need I say more?... Ok, they contain about 10 grams of protein each along with healthy fats like coconut and almond butter depending on which DELICIOUS flavor you choose. Some options are Banana Almond Butter, Blueberry Cashew and Coconut Almond Butter Chocolate Chip.

Gomacro bars are higher in carbohydrates and sugar with each bar containing around 30-35 grams of carbohydrates and around 10 grams of sugar, though this sugar is from real whole foods. So, they are a better choice on days where higher intensity workouts are completed. Check them out here: Gomacro Protein Bars

3) Orgain Protein Bars- Orgain was started by Dr. Andrew Abraham. As a teenager he was diagnosed with cancer which led him to an awakening about the foods he was consuming and how they were affecting his health. He committed to learning as much about nutrition as he could and changed his diet completely to focus on Organic foods. He was able to heal from the cancer and went on to become a physician determined to educate people about health. Later he started Orgain.

Another delicious plant based option, these protein bars are Certified Organic and all are soy free, gluten free, non-GMO and free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. They contain around 12 grams of protein each and are made with nutritious foods like almond butter, chia seeds, and blueberries. Orgain also makes great on the go protein shakes which are another great option and are very similar in nutritional profile to their bars.

They have two different styles of bars, Regular and Simple. The Simple protein bars contain about 14 grams of sugar and 25 grams of carbohydrates, all sugars are from whole food sources like dates. The Regular protein bars contain about 5 grams of sugar and 20 grams of carbohydrates, with some of the sugar being cane sugar as part of the chocolate chips. Overall they are not very high in sugar and carbs, but do contain a modest amount. You can check out their bars here: Orgain Protein Bars
