When it’s time for a snack between meals (or quick fix if you missed a meal) it may not be convenient or easy if you’re on the run, to put your hands on a piece of fresh fruit, or grab a handful of nuts. That’s where Zone Perfect bars come in handy. There are many types of ‘bars’ on the market; some I’m okay with, many others not so much. This blog is about Zone Perfect Bars specifically. They’re easy on the run for breakfast, for between meal snacks, to stick in your briefcase, purse, glove compartment, gym bag or trunk. They come in fruit, chocolate covered, yogurt covered, oatmeal, peanut butter, etc. My personal favs are Fudge Graham, Chocolate Caramel Crisp and Cranberry Orange Crunch (num). They can be found usually in the vitamin isle, versus the sports protein bars and drinks isle.
I like them for their namesake, “zone” as they don’t knock your blood sugar out of whack; keeping you in the good blood sugar zone, because they’re a balance of carbs, protein and fat, entering your blood stream slowly. Well, speaking of ‘balance’, I’ll recommend one other bar here that keeps you in the zone, called “Balance Bars”. They’re a different texture for some variety, and these also come in several flavors.
No reason to go long periods without eating or miss a meal, when you can stash a few of these! Costco type places sell them too, in higher quantity for a lower price.
Keep that blood sugar level…don’t skip meals; have snacks!
