With the multitude of bars, shakes and nutritional supplements it is sometimes challenging to find something that is the perfect way to “feed” your OCR. Not only are the macro nutritionals key (protein, fat, carbs, calories etc.), but the taste, variety, benefits and overall “healthiness” of any supplement or bar is super important. We all want something that works…but also tastes great and is good for you.
After some great trials and test feedback, we’ve found that HealthWarrior Superfoods – in particular their Superfood Protein and Chia bars give you pretty much all of the above. We have some favorites of course…but in general these are solid OCR fuel sources.
We’re giving them a solid 4 stars…Here’s a quick review.
Taste and Flavor
Of course, one of the biggest makers or breakers of most bars is the taste. With that being said, here is what we found…
Taste: There are always preferences, but we found that they CHIA based bars are by far superior to most on the market. The fruity ones have a nice mild taste that doesn’t fall off. The pumpkin seed based bars are mild as well, and overall have a pleasant flavor that makes you feel super healthy but also satisfied.
Flavor: When the label says fruit it’s important that it tastes like fruit…and dark chocolate, well that should be pretty cocoa-rich. We found across the board that the what’s on the label is pretty much dead on with respect to flavor. Of course, there are favorites in anything but you are pretty much guaranteed to find something that really hits home.
Here’s something to try: Chopping up a variety of flavors and keeping them as a go-to snack is a great way to sample a bunch, as well as keep your mouth on it’s toes without making you feel like your snacking crazily (‘cuz they are healthy).
In A Nutshell
We all know that bars are not just bars, for many they are a part of the regimen – so they should have everything you need, and nothing you don’t. Not only should they be filling, but bars should serve their purpose of healthy energy and nutrition, without making you feel weighed down.
