More than a few of you have emailed and asked my opinion on the bazillions of protein bars out there.
Which are the best nutrition-wise? taste-wise? which do I eat?
I could ramble on & on but since this is a trend day and not a MizFitRambles day I shall bottom line it for you.
I love protein bars.
My current personal fave? These. One of those bars fresh from the fridge & a cup of (all together now) decaf? BLISS.
Now, all that said, I dont eat many protein bars.
A few reasons.
First, a calorie isnt a calorie isnt a calorie. The quality of the food you put in your body is, indeed, important. A protein bar? FINE! A piece of grilled chicken and steamed rice? better. Bars definitely have their time & place but real food is going to get you to your goals more quickly.
The other reason? EATING ONE MAKES ME WANT MORE (yep. I did it. the full-on CAPS sentence.).
Their chocolate-y goodness really only serves to increase my sweets craving rather than satiate it.
Now, all that said (I know. lots of saying for a trend post) I’m still gonna head over & order a few of these.
MizFit is all about taking one for the MizFitTeam and tempting her tastebuds in the name of new product investigation (AKA: C.S.I. My Mouth).
I adore that you can JACK UP the good fats with the addition of various butters & nuts, they actually let you CHOOSE your protein-type (soy, egg, whey etc.) and the other options (infusions? sweetners? who knew there were so many) have to be seen to be believed.
I’m thinking if I pack my bar with enough fat and protein and lower the SUGARS that my MizFit Barstravaganza might not trigger more cravings.
Ill let you know.
And—lest we get too fitness focused and stay too on topic here— I leave you with a silly trend.
Im not sure it *yet* qualifies as a (finger quote) trend (un-F.Q.) but that’s neither here nor there.
The important thing is that my mother in law and I hath somehow stumbled into a gag purse exchange at holiday time routine (ok. I started it.).
How FUNNY would this be as her Christmas BraPurse gift?
Im eyeing the Tiffany blue.
