Gluten-Free NoGii Bars!!!



I have always been a protein bar girl.  I remember playing soccer in elementary school and reaching for power bars as a snack.  Remember power bars?  Gosh.  They were awful tasting.  But I remember my coach telling us, "You need the protein and carbs!." 


Flash forward nearly 20 years.  I rarely eat protein bars now, with the exception of ones I make and a few brands I trust.  However, recently I was given the opportunity to try out the NoGii product line by Moms Meet, which is an awesome blogging network that highlights organic and healthy products (check them out at greenmomsmeet.com!).   What is NoGii?  It is a gluten free, non-GMO protein bar/powder/snack line that was created by Elisabeth Hasselback.  Needless to say, I was sold.


My husband helped me try out this line by having the protein bars, while I stuck to the line's paleo bars.  What I love about these bars is that they are made with sustainably sourced, premium ingredients, and they have an ideal balance of protein, fat, carbohydrates.  In addition, they do not contain any trans fat, hydrogenated oils, or high fructose corn syrup.  They have been the perfect on-the-go snack while I have been breastfeeding and for refueling my hubby after his workouts.

My favorite thing about this brand is that they offer the paleo bars for people with multiple gut sensitivities like me.  The varieties include Nuts About Berries, Nuts About Nuts, and Nuts About Tropical Fruit.  Nuts About Nuts was my favorite, and the lowest in sugar, highest in protein and lowest in carbohydrates.  This bar has almonds, dates, cashews, sunflower seeds and pistachios all loaded up in one bar!! 



NoGii bars can be enjoyed by the entire family, and they are designed to fit a busy and healthy lifestyle.  My husband's favorite products were the brand's new High Protein Peanut Butter & Chocolate bar, which has 20 grams of high quality protein.  He noticed a definite change in his energy after his workouts after having the bar.  In addition, he loves using their whey & quinoa protein powder, which offers a complete profile of amino acids and branched chain amino acids.  This is the perfect protein powder to add to smoothies and shakes for after a workout or to use as a meal replacement.



NoGii Bar Jenga!
