Boundless Health with Oatmega 3 Bars


Between teaching and hitting the gym, I have been on the hunt for healthy food bars that pack a nutritional punch. With so many bars on the market, it has been a tasty search for a caloric reasonable bar that contains fiber, protein and other health benefits to make eating a bar worth the money and meal substitution.

Available in Texas stores but also online, Boundless Nutrition has answered the call with their 190 calorie Oatmega 3 Wellness Bar. The bar contains 5 grams of fiber and 14 grams of what they call "time release" protein. I am not sure how long that time release is supposed to last, but couple this bar with a glass of water and I was full for hours!

The bar also contains 300mg of ocean-sourced Omega-3s, 150mg of Green Tea antioxidants, 25% of your RDA of calcium, prebiotic inulin, and contains 100% natural non-GMO products (44% organic). It is cold-processed is low on the glycemic index. It really packs a nutritional punch, doesn't it?

And how does it taste? The texture is like cookie dough, with a little crunch from the nuts that are used. There are three flavors: Dark Chocolate Mint, Mocha, and Dark Chocolate Peanut. The Dark Chocolate Mint brought back memories of Thin Mint cookies, only more flavorful (and healthy). The chocolate is rich with light hints of mint throughout the bar. The Mocha could easily be my afternoon workout snack, and pick-me up. The rich coffee hints filled my mouth even after the bar was consumed. Finally, the Chocolate Peanut was like a healthy candy bar. I would have liked more peanut (says the nut addict) but it was delicious and killed my candy craving.

These sound great! I'm always on a lookout for good bars because I don't eat cereals with milk so my breakfast usually consists of health bars.

Anne said...

Those look great! I love that they have omega-3's in them. They sound like they have a great nutrition profile :D

I reached this blog (which I'm definitely bookmarking, by the way -- great stuff!) from the WW message boards. I'd like to try these because they sound like they'd be a great on-the-go meal replacement or long-lasting snack. And the flavors sound delicious!

Hey there,
I'm so glad I found your blog, and it looks like I picked a good post to jump in on :)

I have never heard of these bars before, but am always looking for a healthy, natural go-to bar for those times when a "real" snack isn't possible.

I'd love to try these bars because they have fiber and protein! Most bars seem to have one or the other!

I just started working ten hour days. In order to still get my workouts in, I get up at 4:30am and then after my workout I rush to pack a lunch and grab some breakfast. These snack bars would REALLY help me out in the morning - I could just grab one of these and not have to spend extra time cooking. Or, I could keep these in my desk drawer for those extra-long days, when my energy is fading...like Mondays...

i would love to have these for my family members to try out- this would make a nice, healthier option to pack into lunches (rather than chips, etc). personally, i adhere to a vegan diet so i wouldn't eat these myself, but would love to see a vegan variety, i think it would sell really well!

Disclaimer:

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
