Most people think you can stop at any gas station and have a "healthy" protein bar, but the reality is they are far from healthy. The list of ingredients is so long that it can't be good for you. A better option is to make the protein bars yourself. Yes, you can totally make them, and in minutes. I just made some for my hubby because he is on a "health kick", which I am so proud of him for. And they are amazingly yummy and easy to make. I used few ingredients and all healthy and gluten-free. Eating gluten-free is so much better for your digestion and also for your belly. I have found through many clients and experience myself that eating a gluten-free diet helps you have a "Flatter Belly". Want to lose weight immediately???? Eat a gluten-free diet. There are tons of great gluten-free recipes on My Pinterest, if you need some great healthy snacks and even dinners, check it out.
Its so important to pre-make all your healthy snacks and have them readily available for yourself throughout the week. It saves you money, time and they are much healthier. But I understand that sometimes our crazy life doesn't allow us the time, so here is something for you to remember when choosing a snack or even a meal. Here is the order of how you should make a choice.
2. Protein Shake
3. Protein Bar
I am so proud of all my readers that have been really investing the time into making all the recipes I have been posting. Check out what this fan said on My Facebook Page about last weeks No-Bake Gluten-Free Cookies.
Ok, here is the recipe, I hope you make them because they are deelish and super easy to make. If you get inspired and you start seeing the incredible benefits of eating healthy snacks like this, there are tons more in my Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipes Book, like my Banana Protein Muffins, its soooo good.
