I am busy. I know this is not a shock to any of you but with 5 children, my blog and just life in general, I don’t always make time for eating properly during the day. I barely eat breakfast (I know, I know, I can feel the death stares at me through the screen) but by the time I get all the kids lunches sorted, backpacks packed, baby in his car seat and everyone packed into the car, I forget that I haven’t eaten and I don’t remember until it’s lunch time. I do try to get my daily recommended amounts of everything from fats to protein but I don’t always do a good job.
I did go through a shake drinking phase as well as grab and go breakfast ideas but at the end of the day, I still forgot because someone needed their hair done or there was a hole in their sock. Having 5 kids means that I don’t always remember myself. I always make sure the kids are taken care of first and then by the time I realize it, 5 hours have passed and the kids are going to be home from school and I have to think about dinner. The worst part about not eating properly during the day is that by dinner I am absolutely starving, especially after nursing my little guy all day too and I tend to overeat. This leads to so many awful things at the end of my day, I needed to find a way to get some healthier nutrients into my day easily and quickly.
When I was first approached to try Premier Protein, I was a little skeptical. I don’t like buying into the “hype” of a product and I usually get this feeling from these kinds of bars, however, I kept an open mind and tried them out. Honestly, they are really good and very filling. I have been having one for breakfast and one for lunch every other day for the past week and I have to say that I don’t feel hungry during the day anymore. I am not overeating at dinner either. They are great for me because I can literally eat it in the car when I drive my boys to school and I have one with my afternoon tea while working on the blog. I was worried that they would taste awful as I have had that experience with bars before but I really like them. My favourite one is the yogurt peanut crunch bar and that is the one I have been choosing for breakfast. The chocolate peanut butter flavour isn’t half bad either and is quite nice. I feel like I am eating a chocolate bar without the guilt.
These bars really do pack a punch:
- 30 grams of healthy protein
- Good source of calcium
- Three grams of fiber
- Supports an on-the-go healthy lifestyle
- Available at Costco stores throughout Canada
If you are looking for a quick on the go replacement for those days when you just can’t seem to get enough time to eat properly, Premier Protein bars are for you. You can feel good knowing that you don’t have to feel guilty when you eat one as it can help give you that little extra when life seems to get in the way.
Disclosure: I did receive compensation and product for this post but as always my opinion is my own and I truly do love these bars.
