Energy bars are very popular and often a quick grab and go for busy people. (That probably includes all of us). I have seen way too many using energy bars as a meal replacement. Not a good idea if you are serious about your health.
Energy bars are best when they become a treat and not a staple. I make mine small to avoid temptation. Using one prior to working out along with alkaline water is the very best option. After class, walking or training once again a small piece along with more alkaline water. (See previous post on healthy drinking water)
Because I am all about helping you along your prevention journey, it needs to be noted again that they are a treat, not a meal.
