Review: Luna Bar

If there's one thing I am always searching for it's a delicious snack bar with a good amount of protein. I came upon Luna Bar, sitting next to all the scary looking protein bars promising to make me build so much muscle mass in only a short amount of time, as a bar promoted as whole nutrition for women. Created by Clif Bar & Company, the Luna Bar's aren't just about women's health, but the website also promotes the healthy lifestyle and events that Luna holds. DSC_0005

Not only do I like the philosophy of Luna in that women shouldn't deprive themselves of good tasting food, but that women need different vitamins and minerals than men, and the ingredients in the products follow accordingly. Most of the ingredients used in the bars are organic, and, even better, some are nut free, so allergy safe.

I picked the S'mores flavour, which is particularly high in calcium and folic acid, which is very important in women's health. The bar contains 9g of protein and 3g of fibre, so you're left feeling full without feeling heavy.

And s'mores flavour? It doesn't get much better than that. It's like the grown up, healthier version of the campfire treat.

What protein/snack bars are your favourite? Do you look for specific vitamins and minerals in a protein bar or just go for your favourite flavour?
