As often as we resolve to eat healthy, it's easy to get sidelined by convenience. You know what it's like—you swear you're going to make time for breakfast but snooze a little too long. You're not going to snack on chips again, but, well, that's what's there. Et cetera. Et repeat.
What you really want is a convenient and filling snack that you can trust is healthy. We became protein bar skeptics a long time ago (because hidden sugars exist, and they are scary), but RXBARs are the real deal—what you see is what you get, and what you get is gonna be stupidly delicious. It's also going to be soy free, dairy free, and gluten free, because why not?
The way we see it, RXBARs are a great replacement for all the junk you'd be eating otherwise. About to inhale a blueberry muffin? Sub in a blueberry RXBAR and feel smug that you just ate egg whites and cashews instead of processed carbs and sugar. Reaching for a brownie? Chocolate sea salt and coconut chocolate are just as tasty, and the protein makes them waaaay more filling.
Mint chocolate is light, refreshing, and perfect post-workout. Peanut butter is going to be 100 percent better than any sad peanut butter-toast combo you put together when you're starving mid-afternoon. Maple sea salt is what you need when you're itching for something sweet, and apple cinnamon is like a bowl of sugary oatmeal you can eat on the go—minus the added sugar.
We could go on, but the bottom line is this: Every time you eat an RXBAR, you're getting something filling and satisfying but healthy to the core. This isn't some chalky protein bar, nor is it a sugary dessert masquerading as a health food. It's exactly what it looks like, and that's why we love it.
