If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you probably know I promote eating “real food.” That means staying away from packaged food that’s been processed and contains artificial ingredients. I even wrote a post called the 12 Best Snack Foods for Baby Boomers to Live Longer and Stay Healthy. However, after fainting a couple of times several years ago because of a blood sugar drop, I realized that it helps to have a healthy snack in your purse in case you go too long without eating. Kind Snacks are perfect for this.
I’ve never been a big fan of protein bars. Most of them taste weird and are extremely high in calories. They have some ingredients that are suspect. Kind Snacks are clean. They are gluten-free, low glycemic index, dairy free, Non-GMO, very low sodium, 0g trans fat and are a good source of fiber.
My favorite bar is Dark Chocolate Almond and Coconut. It’s sweetened with honey, glucose syrup, and a little sugar. Total sugars are 12 g. Glucose sugar is a simple sugar made with plants and some algae. (I had to look it up because I’m careful about my sugar intake)
The bars are easy to stick in your purse. TIP: If they contain chocolate don’t let them get too warm. If you find yourself needing a blood sugar boost just unwrap and gulp. I love nuts, especially almonds, and a little dark chocolate is good for you.
Some of the other flavors I tried were Almond & Coconut, Dark Chocolate, Nuts, & Sea Salt (peanuts and almonds), and Salted Caramel & Dark Chocolate Nut. (peanuts, almonds, & cashews) Each bar is 200 calories. All of them are scrumptious!
