Eating paleo is all about being prepared. Living in the 21st century means succeeding in your lifestyle goals means learning how to take full advantage of everything that’s available. And in the case of eating right, that means a little bit of research and a (small) amount of preparation.
When it comes to ensuring that breakfast gets you up and running for the day, it tends to be easy if you’ve got a bit of time on your hands. But let’s face it, on the average working day, who honestly has any of that mythical part of the day known as ‘spare time’?
So, on the days that time seems to run away, taking advantage of a pre-packaged breakfast bar is definitely the way to go. The following are 5 of the best paleo friendly bars to keep in the cupboard to make sure your day starts as you mean to go on…
1. Caveman Foods Primal Performance Caveman Bar
These energy bars are a fab way to start your day, cram packed with the yumminess and calories you need to power through the morning. The Primal Performance Caveman Bar comes in a variety of delicious flavors. These include Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut, Dark Chocolate Cherry Nut, Almond Cashew, Wild Blueberry Nut, and Maple Nut.
Each is paleo-perfect, as well as being peanut free. Plus each bar is handily split in two, meaning you can keep the second one to satisfy those mid-morning munchies as well…
2. RX Bar Whole Food Protein Bar
Could there be a tastier way to consume 200 calories? If there is, we’re not sure what it is… The RX Bar Whole Food Protein Bar is created using ingredients such as egg whites, dates, and nuts, as well as a whole load of natural ingredients for further texture and taste.
And the result? A mouth-watering combination that’s both paleo friendly and perfect for satisfying morning hunger pangs.
The bar comes in a combination of flavors: Peanut Butter, Blueberry, Coconut Chocolate, Apple Cinnamon, Coffee Chocolate, Mint Chocolate, Maple Sea Salt, and Chocolate Sea Salt.
Truly versatile – as these are also great as a post-workout snack, or at any time of the day when you feel the need for a quick pick-me-up.
3. Amrita Paleo High Energy Protein Bar
Yum yum yum…. Is the first thing we thought when sinking our teeth into one of the variety of scrumptious flavors of the Amrita Paleo High Energy Protein Bar. Created by Indian born, paleo guru, Arshad, the now US based owner of Amrita Health Foods is passionate about only offering the healthiest, strictly paleo food products that truly fit into the busy person’s lifestyle.
Free from all of the most common allergens, the bars are packed with nutrition. And as well as being super-tasty, they are perfect for breakfast, after a workout, kids snacks, and for anyone who’s following a healthy, vegan diet.
The delicious taste is created by the addition of dates – the moist, naturally sweet, and easy to digest product – and of course, they don’t contain any artificial colors, preservatives, or sweeteners.
4. Empact Energy Bar for Women
OK, ladies – so here’s a paleo bar that’s designed to be perfect for your needs. (But hey, who are we to say the guys can’t sneak one from the cupboard as well. They are, after all, super tasty…).
Jam-packed full of protein and energy, the non-GMO, paleo friendly Empact Bars provide you with a massive 10 grams of protein – the perfect way to start your day with a bang!
A handy size, meaning that you don’t get half way through it and decide that’s enough – these are designed to be just big enough to satisfy your tummy. Empact is the creation of husband and wife team, Melanie and Zeke Delrose. They realized that the breakfast/energy bar world leans heavily towards the male market. So they decided to give their paleo bars the gentle touch, and Empact was born.
And we have to say, they’ve done a storming job…
5. Marigold Bars THE PRIMAL (paleo) Protein Bar
Rocking their great name of ‘The Primal’, we think there’s no better way to start your day than by sinking your teeth into the delights that make up these super-tasty, macarooned bar made from some of the best non-gmo protein available – grass fed whey isolate…?
We love these bars – and they provide an incredible 20+ grams of protein, as well as being super low in sugar (less than 2 grams). They’re also lactose and casein free, and they’re made fresh from ethically sourced, premium ingredients.
Truly an awesome way to start your day. Just make sure you keep them under lock and key, because they’re so delicious that you’ll find people tend to pinch them.
