These bars taste great and provide the energy you need to get through the morning.
Thunderbird’s Pecan Goji Pistachio superfood bar is simply dates, pecans, almonds, pistachios, Himalayan sea salt, goji berries, and dried golden berries. All ingredients complement each other to create the perfect blend of crunch and sweetness.
Nature’s Bakery Fig Bar is like a wholesome fig newton. It’s tasty and contains no high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, is non-GMO and plant-based, which is a plus for me. It’s packed with real fruit, figs, and whole wheat to help fuel your day.

NuGo’s Vanilla Yogurt bar is a tasty non-GMO and gluten-free bar that contains 11 grams of protein. It’s light, full of vitamins and minerals, and will fill you up without a full feeling.
NuGo Slim Chocolate Mint bar is a favorite of mine. That’s because it’s indulgent but contains no Maltitol or artificial sweeteners, with just a few grams of sugar, and it’s vegan. This high-fiber bar contains 17 grams of protein and is a winner in my book.
To keep your life simplified on busy days, throw a delicious fruit, nut, or whole-grain bar in your bag to keep you going strong.
