So I’ve been working on changing my habits/lifestyle, especially my nutrition. I try to eat six small meals a day. As a diabetic, I’ve been slacking on my diabetes hardcore and it caught up to me. So far, I’ve been doing well for two weeks with the changes I’ve made. I’m quite excited to say I’ve gotten my sugars down and doing better!
In this adventure, I’ve been decided to give a go to protein bars, as they are a good way for me to have a midday snack/lunch if needs be when I don’t have the energy/spoons to make myself a actual meal. So I got a good variety. Some of which I already have had and enjoyed. (but in different flavors) I’m going to rate them in a 1-5 star system. 1 being the worst, 5 being the best. So let’s kick this adventure off!
I got a few bars from the supermarket. Today was day one of my bar adventure.
Day one: 22 Days Nutrition in Almond Butter chocolate chip.
Description. They say they are “non-GMO, plant-based, gluten free, soy free” they say they are also organic.
Ingredients listed: Organic brown rice protein concentrate, organic tapioca syrup, organic almonds, organic agave inulin syrup, organic dates,organic semisweet chocolate, organic cocoa butter, organic vanilla extract, organic flaxseed.
✮✮✮ 3/5 stars.
I like the size and shape. It was a good size. It definitely filled me for lunchtime.
The flavor however, ehh. It has a strange aftertaste that I’m not a fan of. I usually associate that flavor with niacin. Something I’m sensitive to. I’m pretty sure it’s the protein concentrate. It’s not as bad as whey protein, but still gets to me. I’m also not a fan of dates. So that could be it as well. I wish it tasted more like almonds and chocolate, but it’s a bit too subtle for my tastes.
Maybe at some point I’ll try a different flavor. But so far, this one hasn’t won me over.
