Better 4 U Bars: Part 3

Fancy Food Show '18

Two companies that we've written about prior-showed new (to us)-versions that stood out...
Reishi mushrooms have herbal medicinal properties-help detox the body, boost the immune system+fight stress. FYI-there is absolutely NO mushroom taste in this pleasingly sweet enough (coconut +coconut sugar) crunchy chewy bar.   
organic pumpkin, chia and hemp seeds, sunflower kernels-and peanuts+peanut butter, cashews+almonds- in this flavor-with 7 grams protein































purely elizabeth. brand expansion on their popular granolas...with a bunch of bars-including four flavors of GRAIN-FREE Granola Bars with organic extract from SUPERFOOD REISHI mushrooms in the mix. NON-GMO, certified gluten-free, vegan and bonuses-NSF certified (great for athletes) & purely elizabeth = CERTIFIED B Corporation

USDA Organic Keep Healthy® Low Glycemic Bar-are tasty treats-with meaningful amounts of plant based protein-making this a really worthy post exercise eat...esp this chewy rich Sea Salt Brownie  dairy free, gluten free, vegan, non-GMO version-that delivers yumminess without the sugar rush. There are other flavors too--all snack bars safer for diabetics or those sensitive to those high/lows glycemic rushes. AND no artificial preservatives, sugar alcohols  or artificial sweetners or high fructose corn syrup.
IMO-real ingredient protein bars (there's also a 15 grams of protein options)-priced similarly-and widely available-why wouldn't one choose a USDA organic version...plus-Keep Healthy® are now widely available-online too.

impressive-12 grams of protein...5 gm of fiber, 7.5 gm of sugar...
