Re: store bought bars

I buy Zone Bars for a really good price at Costco but not for me (My Kids box and do Jiu Jitsu) and I give them to the Boys PWO while I have my protein. Not too sure about the Paleo aspect, but I'm sure others on here can give you an idea.

Zone bars contain soy, dairy, artificial sweetener, and grains. There is almost no ingredient in them that is allowable by paleo.

As far as the other mentions, Lara bars are the only I've found to be totally paleo, with the exception of the peanut flavour obviously. Kind bars are extremely close as they are made out of dried fruit/berries and nuts, but they unfortunately all have puffed rice and soy lectin, and some of the flavours have added sugar in addition to the honey for sweetner - so not strictly paleo.

Re: store bought bars

Most aren't full paleo, but not bad choices for the munchies.

Jump to to their website for more info. Great story about how they figured out how to manufacture for sale a traditional palo food -- wasna -- with a long tradition among the Oglala Lakotas. Too bad it isn't sold packed into buffalo horns like in the old days!

I just tried one of these yesterday. Not too bad.
I cant decide if I like the meat and cranberry together. I have one of the hot and spicy ones to try today.

Can't get enough of those things! Their summer sausages, when available, are really good!

Re: store bought bars

I am a big fan of Raw Revolution Bars (safe) the nutrition varies by the flavor. I like the Chocolate coco ones - high in fat, some sugar and some protein. Good as a post workout recovery snack post WOD, pre-home where you can eat a real recovery meal. You can buy them at whole foods for $1.99.

Larabars are pretty good but many of them are pure fructose without any fat or protein. The coconut ones have some fat though which is good.
