One thing I always say to my kids in the morning is “where is your protein?!” (reminds me of the hotel breakfast fail!)
I hate to send them off to school with no protein in their bellies because I know they struggle in class with hungry stomachs. So I am always searching for new and convenient ways to meet our protein macros each day with foods that actually taste good. While I do love hard boiled eggs, one can only eat so many of them before the sight of them makes you groan out loud.
Complete Nutrition recently launched a new protein bar product so I figured we would give it a shot. I’m not typically a protein bar person, but they do make for a great snack when we are out and about.
The Charge-On Bar is an all-natural, whole food approach to the protein bar.Each bar has 21g of protein, less than 5g of sugar and a soft, chewy texture.
I was definitely impressed! I tried the Salted Carmel Cashew bar and it was really good, there was no chalky aftertaste. It was almost like eating a candy bar and I was actually a little sad when it was all gone! (probably because I knew this was the only one I was going to get because my sons scarfed down the other ones that Complete Nutrition had sent to me.)
My 11 year old, who refuses to eat breakfast on most days, said the Dark Chocolate Cherry bar was “outstanding” and that I definitely need to get more. This right there was the mom win I needed!
