Before I was a stay at home mom I worked as a retail manager at some huge stores. The last store I was a manager at was GNC (General Nutrition Center). I went into that job not knowing a thing about being healthy and I was the last person to ask about how what supplements to take and eat/drink. What I did get familiar with was all the protein bars we had in the store.
Getting hungry while at work was never a problem because I was surrounded by healthy foods right? Wrong! I think out of the whole 50+ different types/flavors/brands of protein bars we carried I maybe like 2 or 3! Yep, I knew I was not a protein bar type girl. Most were chalky or all I could taste was pure protein. Definitely not how they advertised as being just like a candy bar, that's for sure.
Well now a bar called Luna Protein is on the market and I'm so happy because they have 2 two flavors with now 5 on the shelves! When I'm out running errand I never have time to stop and catch a bite. I need something I can take with me and eat on the go which is why I've always loved the convenience factor or protein bars.
The nutritional facts are pretty impressive compared to more bars on the market. The biggie I just have to point out is the incredible 12g of protein! TWELVE!
Serving Size One bar (45 g)
Total Fat 7g
Saturated Fat 3.5g
Calcium 25% RDI
Iron 15% RDI
Vitamin D 15% RDI
The great thing about Luna Protein is they are made for women! This is the first protein bar made just for us with nutrients most women need: iron, folic acid, and calcium!
So while I would never use this bar as a meal replacement I definitely love that it will hold me over in between meals as a great filling snack.
