Rx Bars and 310

I’m not a huge breakfast eater. It’s actually really hard for me to eat breakfast I actually have to actually think about eating it and then make myself do it. Crazy I know but it’s true. I know I really should eat something, but I’m not a morning person and adding that one extra bit to do in the morning makes me groan. 

However, I’ve been doing fairly well with eating breakfast. I’ve missed a few days here and there but for the most part I’ve been eating it. 

My 2 go to breakfasts are either a 310 shake or an Rx Bar. Both are super easy and portable. As in they can fly with me in the car. So, there is no need to get up any earlier to eat, as it goes with me. 

So, I’m not a huge fan of protein shakes. They always taste gross to me and just have a weird after taste and I can never add enough stuff to them to cover up the taste without adding a billion extra calories to the already large amount of calories in the powder. However, I’ve found one I actually like. And, even more surprising is I’ll even drink the chocolate flavored one. I love chocolate but HATE anything chocolate flavored. Chocolate cake, pudding, ice cream, and protein powders are all things I have no problem saying no to. However, 310’s chocolate isn’t too bad. Plus with only 90 calories I can add a whole lot of stuff and not have a 900 calorie meal. I mix the shakes with ice, almond milk, fruit, and sometimes nut butters and I have no problem drinking them and enjoying it. Now, I will admit I like the vanilla flavor better but it’s good to change it up every once in a while. I blend up the shake pour it into a cup or travel cup depending and I’m on my way. And, it definitely keeps me full until I’m ready for lunch, which is awesome. I don’t need a mid morning snack. 

The other breakfast of choice is Rx bars. I love them and they have expanded their line to include some new flavors that are absolutely delicious. The thing I love about Rx bars are the taste and the fact that the ingredients are all real food. There is nothing in them that isn’t whole real food. I love that. I buy a case off of Amazon and keep a stock of them. I always have one in my purse and one in my car for those times when I’m starving and there is no meal anytime soon in site. They are a great emergency food to have on hand. Also, I love these for traveling I take them with me whenever I travel. No need to worry about finding something gluten free and healthy that I can snack on when I bring these along. They pack around 12 grams of protein which always is a good thing for me and will work as a meal or as a snack to hold me off until I can get a meal in me. 

Thank you Rx bars and 310 for getting me into somewhat of a breakfast habit. 

Happy Saturday

Rx Bars

So, with doing a Whole 30 and trying to eat mostly Paleo with occasional Primal eating days I’ve been finding all sorts of great new foods.
And, one just happens to be the Rx Bar which is Whole 30 approved which is good to know for my next Whole 30 I’m starting in March. For those times when I just need something quick to eat this will definitely fill the bill.
I bought a box of 12 through Amazon and got the Coconut Cocoa flavor. This morning after my first workout I ate one and they are pretty tasty. Definitely not a cardboard taste or anything like that. They are moist and have a bit of sweetness to them but not too sweet. I’m thinking I’m going to have to try the other flavors.
Definitely check them out if your looking for a protein bar with no added sugar and made with whole ingredients. Seriously, this is the ingredient list dates, egg whites, figs, almonds, unsweetened coconut, & 100% cocoa. What no soy no dairy no words I can’t pronounce, it’s awesome. Give them a try you probably won’t be disappointed.
