What are the best energy bars for someone trying to get fit?

We encourage our barre3 clients to choose energy bars that are made from all natural ingredients. Stay away from bars that contain words you cannot pronounce or can assume are chemical based. LARA bars are my favorite. Most only have two to three ingredients such as dates, coconut, and cashews.

Ideally, eat food such as raw nuts and fruit over any packaged item. This is not always possible. When looking at the nutrition facts on an energy bar, keep the sugar below 10g and the fiber above 3g. Ideally, if there is some protein in the bar, that will be great. You want to feel satieted and stay full for about 2 hours, not have a high and crash from too much sugar.
