30 Sep 2016 Guilt-Free Snacking with YogaBars !!
Recently I was diagnosed with PCOS. I had to keep a check on calorie intake. I had to have my meal in portions & include green leafy vegetables, fruits and fluids. The worst thing was to resist the temptation of eating processed foods like noodles, pasta, samosas, french fries, chips and chocolates. I was on the lookout for healthy snacks that are high on protein and low carb/sugar wise. Honestly, there were too many options to pick from. Yogabars attracted me and they had the ingredients I was looking for.
The packaging of Yogabars is awesome with that matte wrapper, funky fonts and catchy colors. Yogabars are as natural as possible with a raw & organic feel. The quality is top notch.
Yogabars contain no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oil or any other chemicals but all without compromising on taste.
On the other hand, these bars contain nutritional seeds, whole grains, cereals, nuts, dried fruits and Spices with ingredients like almonds, cashews, chia, millets etc. blended with the sweetness of honey and cocoa to give you delicious flavours. Each bar contain 150-170 calories with 3-4g of protein per serving. They also contain a good percentage of fiber, omega 3/6 fats and anti oxidants.
There are different bars with some unique ingredients to choose from. The variety in Yogabars is excellent. They have chocolate cranberry and chocolate brownie variants for instance.
I tried a variety Yogabar pack with 6 variants as below:
- Peanut Butter
- Cardomom Coconut Chew
- Nuts and Seeds Crunch
- Vanilla Almond
- Cashew Orange Zest
- Chocolate Chunk Nut
Cashew Orange Zest’ Bar made with Oats, Dates, Honey, Cashew, Cranberry, Almond, Chai Seeds, Amaranth, and Orange Oil
‘Vanilla Almond’ Bar made with Oats, Honey, Dates, Almond, Sesame, Honey, Chia seeds, Amaranth, Cinnamon
‘Nuts and seeds’ Bar made with Oats, Honey, Dates, Almond, Cashew, Amaranth, Chia Seeds, Flax, Pumpkin, Sunflower, Sesame and Watermelon Seeds
‘Peanut butter’ Bar made with Oats, Dates, Honey, Peanut butter, Amaranth, Chia Seeds and Almond
‘Chocolate Chunk Nut’ Bar made with Dates, Oats, Honey, Cashew, Cocoa, Almond, Chai Seeds and Dark Chocolate
‘Cardomom Coconut Chew’ made with Oats, Dates, Raisins, Honey, Almonds, Cashew, Amaranth, Cocoa, Khadsari, Sunflower oil, Palm Sugar, Flax seeds, Sesame, Cardamom and Coconut
These energy bars are designed to replace oily fried snacks and fast food. I felt that the taste of chocolate chunk nut could have been better. All yogabars are not completely sugar free as some of them contains 9 -11 gm sugar. I really liked these bars and wanted to give a thumbs up for Yogabar. Each bar is priced at Rs. 35 making it affordable and perfect for a healthy lifestyle. Do give these bars a try!!
