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.
