Paleo Friendly Protein Bars Are Making It Easier To Eat Healthy On The Go.

WarriorBarIf you’ve ever been tempted to grab a protein bar to hod you over til your next meal..

You’ll love what Onnit Nutrition Warrior bar.

I say “tempted” because up until recently.. Depending on a pre-made “protein” bar was a mostly bad idea.

While different companies offer differing levels of quality.. It mostly doesn’t matter, since most all protein bars are nothing more than well marketed candy bars with some barely digestible crude protein thrown in as an after thought.

“Just get the Snickers and the beef jerky. Might as well.”

Of course, we all know that you can’t actually give in to those little voices in our heads.. But, this time, it makes a pretty good point. At least you’d get some quality protein along with your junk food.

The age of healthy snack food may actually be upon us..

Due to further proliferation of the Paleo diet and a few other well known diets.. Food manufacturers are beginning to cater to people demanding food that doesn’t just say it’s healthy and natural on the package but that actually is healthy and natural.

It’s an encouraging trend and one that will hopefully continue, and make it’s way into all aspects of our commercial food system.. I’m getting ahead of myself, though.. For now, let’s just be happy that we’re finally getting some options thrown our way!

All around me, I see restaurants, foods, conventions, and shows, all catering to the nutritional ideals that are the foundation of the Paleo diet. Even if it isn’t always labeled as “Paleo”… Who cares.. It’s all based on unprocessed whole foods, with an emphasis on healthy fats, and a caution towards too many carbohydrates.

The Warrior bar is awesome.

Really, it’s that good. I love these things.

It contains 14 grams of grass fed buffalo, 4 grams of healthy fat. I will say, I find it slightly annoying that they don’t make the amount of carbohydrates that are in the bar obvious. Seems like their trying to hide something. Also.. let’s not go getting all extreme here and shun every and all carbohydrate like we’ve done with fat over the last two decades. They all exist within our natural foods for a reason. None of them are “bad”.. they just have to be understood and eaten properly.

Okay.. I’m ranting.. back to the bar..

So yeah, if you know that the bar contains 140 calories, and you know that it contains 14 grams of protein and 4 grams of fat. And you also know that a protein gram is 4 calories, a carbohydrate gram is 4 calories, and a fat gram is 9 calories.. than you could figure up that each warrior bar contained 12 grams of carbs.

hich is actually a very acceptable amount for a snack protein bar, especially if eaten as a post or pre-workout snack, or even an in between breakfast and lunch snack. Not sure why that isn’t made more obviou,s but that doesn’t change the fact that the new Warrior bars put out be Onnit nutrition are delicious and super convenient, while providing you with some real nutrition, all at a very fair price.

Eating healthy costs too much..

You don’t have to tell me how much cheaper it would be to live off of the dollar menu at McD’s!

To be honest though, it will probably never be cheap to eat healthy, but the new Warrior bars come in at a reasonable price point.. At about $4.00 per bar – they’re only about $1.00 more than the pretty much worthless protein bars that you’ve probably bought before, but they’re still less that a full on Paleo meal or snack that you’d pick up at the grocery store.

All in all.. These new Warrior bars are tasty, all natural, affordable, while still maintaining a decent macronutrient profile consisting of healthy foods.

Definitely check these things out if you’re in need of portable, convenient, Paleo friendly food on the go.
