Protein Bars — Likee?
As mentioned in my previous post (Lizzy’s Low Sugar Granola — Likee?), I am looking at cutting back on sugar intake to help lose weight. Issue is — I love chocolate and sweets. I always had and will always have a sweet tooth. How would I ever cut down on sweets?!
My friend, who has convinced me to go on this journey, introduced me to Protein Bars. There are many of them and I have tried a few. There are 2 that I love as they are low in sugar, high in protein and kill my chocolate craving!
FulFill Vitamin and Protein Bar
They come in various flavors — which to be fair I have not tried them all as I am not a big fan of i.e coconut. My personal favorite is the Peanut and Caramel one.
It reminds me a lot of a Snickers bar — but a healthier one :) Its nutty, chocolaty and delicious. Best part of it all — it has less than 2 grams of sugar per bar!

These are great to have for afternoon snack when your energy is low and you need a nice boost.
Grenade Carb Killa High Protein Bar
Again — many flavors to chose from — but my personal favorite are Peanut Nutter and Caramel Chaos. Great bars with 2.0 g or less of sugar per bar.
I tend to rotate between both so I don’t get tired of any — kills my sweet cravings and keeps the sugar intake low.
