Bar trend­ing

Food & Drink - - TRENDSPOTTING -

The num­ber of en­ergy, pro­tein and gra­nola bars on the mar­ket these days is stag­ger­ing. Here are three brands to suit most needs.

Lunch­room Treat

At a mod­est 24 grams, Cana­dian and cer­ti­fied nut-free, Made Good gra­nola bars are tai­lor-made for the kids’ lunch box. Bonus: dried veg­etable pow­der gives each bar the same nu­tri­ents as one serv­ing of vegeta­bles.

Whole­some Snack

While Lärabars tend to be higher in su­gar than the av­er­age en­ergy bar, their suc­cinct in­gre­di­ent lists read like a haiku of whole­some­ness. Think of it as a con­densed rec­tan­gle of trail mix in your bag for an emer­gency snack on the go.

Pre-Work­out Boost

High in pro­tein and car­bo­hy­drates, Gen­uine Health Fer­mented Greek Yogurt Pro­teins+ bars are also de­li­cious, es­pe­cially the Cherry Al­mond Vanilla flavour. They’ll quickly re­fill an empty tank be­fore you hit the gym.
