With little time and lots to do, we often tend to take shortcuts on some of the most important aspects in life. One of the things being our food and how balanced our nutrient intake is for the day. A quick, easy and healthy fix for the problem comes with protein bars. You can literally carry them around and they are inexpensive. The good taste is an added bonus. Protein bars are also popular with dieters and athletes because of the instant energy quotient and muscle building capacity. If you get too tired to mix yourself a protein shake after a workout, a bar is a good option to save time and efforts.
Unfortunately, not all protein bars are created equal. Some are secretly loaded with sugar to get you hooked to the taste. Others have a higher degree of carb content which hampers a low carb diet. So how do you select the right one? Look for bars that have at least half the amount of proteins as that of carbs and sugar and fat as close to single digits as possible. Here are some of the best low carb protein bars:
