Best energy bars for the 'mungries': Munchies cravings plus hunger
By Joanne Eglash on April 27, 2014
It's a common problem: It's not meal time, but your stomach is grumbling: "Feed me, feed me." You've got a case of the munchies. We like to call it "munger" (munchies plus hungry). And we also like to keep healthy snacks on hand just for those "mangry" situations.
What works? We recommend keeping a variety of options on hand. Protein bars can satisfy your "munger" but it's important to read the labels. Look for ones that are low in sugar and high in protein. Among our favorites:
- With 20 grams of protein and only 180 calories, Pure Protein Chocolate Deluxe (click for details) is a winner.
- The combination of fiber and protein plus the bliss of good-for-you-dark chocolate make KIND Nuts & Spices, Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt a favorite.
- We emphasize avoiding sugar, which makes high fiber, high protein Promax LS Lower Sugar Energy Bar, Chocolate Fudge score high for satisfying hunger while stabilizing blood sugar and boosting energy.
- And we were on a real quest for quenching a severe case of the "mungries" when we discovered our new favorite and grand champion: Sugar-free, gluten-free, flavor-full Quest bars, such as Quest Nutrition Protein Bar Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Flavor (click for more information).
