I'm not loyal to or a fan of promoting any one brand, but I do think KIND bars are a great example for the many of the reasons I just explained:
There is no perfect "energy bar." Different bars serve different needs, and the only way to truly control what goes into them is to make some at home (which I totally recommend!) If you haven't already tried making these quinoa energy balls, you should give'm a whirl!
There's a lot out there to choose from and try. Aim first to rely on real foods and make educated choices otherwise. As with all things, even if it's "healthy," keep moderation in consideration... if half your diet consist of these energy bars then you may want to reconsider =)
Eat happy, choose healthy!
