I realize I haven’t posted anything in a week. I was on spring break, and boy did I need a break.
I’m a workaholic, so I forced myself not to do any type of work while I was on vacation. Trust me, it was painful to stay away from writing a blog post, but I dug down deep and survived!
I’m back now, though, and I want to make this a short one.
While I was on vacation, I was still reading articles. (Some habits are hard to break.) Before discussing the article, I want to first explain my position on protein bars.
I’m an avid reader, especially when it comes to food labels. I read food labels like it’s my second job. No matter what I’m eating, buying, etc. I’m looking at the food labels first.
I eat a lot of protein bars and I’ve found that they’re not in fact protein, but “sugar” bars. If looked at closely, there’s more sugar in a bar than there is protein. While I was reading, I found an article that backs up my belief of “sugar” bars.
It’s an interesting read and reveals the true makeup of what many believe to be a “healthy” alternative for a meal. The lesson learned: read the food labels on all protein bars and see how much sugar you’re actually eating.
Let’s get informed, and, most importantly… Let’s get energized!
